Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed for women worldwide. Despite its popularity, though, a myth persists that breast augmentation results always appear obvious and artificial. To the contrary, when performed by a breast enhancement specialist, breast implants can appear as natural or dramatic as you’d like. In order to achieve the best breast augmentation results, it’s important to consider a few factors.
Your natural anatomy plays a huge role in determining your final results. Your existing breast size and shape, as well as the width of your rib cage and the distance from your breasts to your shoulders should all be assessed to determine the right implant type for you. Your age may also be a factor. A skilled plastic surgeon can create beautiful breast implant results in older women as well as younger ones.
Implant Size and Profile
Implant size and profile are two of the most significant factors in the outcome of your augmentation. Implant size is measured in cubic centimeters of volume rather than cup size, while implant profile refers to the degree of projection from the chest wall as compared to the base width of the implant. To determine the best size and profile for you, it can be useful to show your surgeon “dream look” photos of women with your ideal breast appearance.
Vectra 3D Imaging
It can be difficult to picture your final results prior to your surgery. To help you decide on your goal look, use Vectra 3D Imaging to view different breast sizes and profiles on your body. This technology can help you develop a better understanding of your goals and ensure effective communication between you and your plastic surgeon.
