Will A Breast Augmentation Look Natural?

If you are considering breast augmentation, you certainly want to end up with breasts that look proportional and natural. It’s a desire shared by most breast augmentation patients because although they want to increase the size of their breasts, they don’t want the results to look fake and unnatural.

How to ensure that your breast augmentation looks natural

In order to get natural looking breast augmentation results, it’s important to select an implant that is the right size and projection for your body type. Implants that are too big, or push forward excessively, generally look unnatural.

The shape of the implants also affects the final outcome of breast augmentation. Breast implants are typically round or shaped. Round implants are full all around, while shaped or teardrop implants are narrow at the top, and fuller at the bottom. Both shapes can provide natural looking results; it really comes down to which one is the right fit for your body, so be sure to get the expert advice you need.

The placement of the breast implant is also a factor in how your results will look. Breast implants may be placed above the muscle (subglandular) or below the muscle (submuscular). The optimal location for you will depend on your unique circumstances.

Every woman has a different body shape as well as specific aesthetic goals, and this will go a long way in determining the outcome of breast augmentation surgery.

What’s the recovery time for a breast augmentation?

Have you decided to have breast augmentation? If so, you are probably excited about your decision and looking forward to the outcome. However, during your consultation it’s important to discuss all the details about your breast augmentation surgery, including the recovery time.

What’s the recovery time for a breast augmentation?

The recovery for a breast augmentation won’t be the same for every patient, but full recovery typically takes 4 to 6 weeks. Patients are generally able to return to work about one week after breast augmentation, and then gradually resume their normal routine after 7 days.

Factors that affect recovery time after breast augmentation

Factors such as the placement of the breast implants (submuscular or subglandular), implant size, and implant type, can all influence the recovery timeline after breast augmentation.

3 Tips for a healthy recovery after breast augmentation

  1. Arrange for help at home. Patients typically experience moderate pain and discomfort within the first few days of surgery, so you will need to ask a family member or friend to assist with household chores.
  2. Follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions. Following all the post-procedural instructions of your plastic surgeon will help to facilitate a speedy recovery.
  3. Plan ahead. Planning ahead by filling prescriptions, and stocking up on supplies and your favorite entertainment, will make recovery smoother and more successful.

While the above tips are helpful, it’s important to be patient when recovering from breast augmentation, and give your body the time it needs to heal.

How long will my breast augmentation last?

Breast augmentation continues to be a highly sought after cosmetic surgery procedure in the US and it has a very high patient satisfaction rate. One of the most common questions women considering breast augmentation ask is – How long will my breast augmentation last.

How is Breast augmentation performed?

Breast augmentation may be performed with the use of implants, or by using fat transferred from other areas of the body. This method is known as fat transfer breast augmentation. The fat used for this procedure is typically taken from areas such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. The extraction of the fat is done using a gentle liposuction technique, and the fat must be properly placed, to ensure that most of it survives after transfer.

How long will my breast augmentation last

How long breast augmentation lasts varies, as it depends on the specific procedure. Breast augmentation with implants typically lasts 10-15 years. Patients often have to undergo a second operation due to complications with implants such as capsular contracture, wrinkling, or displacement.

On the other hand, when fat transfer breast augmentation is done correctly, the results can be permanent, since it involves using the patient’s own fat cells. The breasts typically take a few months to settle after fat transfer breast augmentation, as the transplanted cells have to develop their own blood supply. Once these healthy blood vessels are formed, the effects of surgery should last for a long time.
