How to Get Natural Looking Breast Implants

Tag Archives: breast implants

The safety and quality of the breast implants available today have encouraged many women to decide proactively on their breast appearance. Women want to feel confident about their appearance, which usually includes a desire for perkier and more youthful looking breasts.

A patient may seek to enhance the shape and look of her breasts, but how can she get dramatic outcomes that still look natural? A number of factors will go into determining natural looking results with breast implant plastic surgery.

The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides breast implant surgery to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and surrounding locations.

Choose the Right Cosmetic Surgeon

Many surgeons are performing plastic surgeries today. Unfortunately, not all of these surgeons are well-qualified in matching the right implant size and type with a specific patient’s body shape and frame. The most important factor that affects the outcomes of the breast enlargement procedure is the choice of the cosmetic surgeon.

It is advisable for patients to choose a surgeon with an ABPS board certification. The surgeon should be able to answer any questions that a patient has while giving her sound advice depending on her requirements.

The plastic surgeon should be skilled and capable of employing a wide range of surgical techniques and procedures to offer the patient the most natural breast appearance possible with minimal scarring. The patient may not be able to achieve the natural outcomes she seeks if the surgeon follows a cookie-cutter approach and relies on specific favorite techniques only. 

Choose the Right Implant Type

The patient’s choice of an implant, as well as the implant placement technique, will determine the appearance, tautness, and firmness of the breast augmentation plastic surgery results. Before choosing saline, silicone, or gummy bear implants, the patient should discuss her desired outcomes with the plastic surgeon.

The shape of the implant, round or teardrop, also impacts the appearance of the breasts after the enhancement procedure. The surgeon should recommend the best implant shape according to the patient’s body type to accomplish natural outcomes.

While people mistakenly believe that round implants always create a round breast shape and teardrop implants create a natural breast shape, this is not necessarily true. In choosing the correct implant shape, other physical attributes also play a vital role.

Choose the Right Implant Size

The choice of the correct sized breast implant is a crucial factor in achieving natural looking results. The patient may seek to attain a specific cup size. However, cup sizes are subjective. It is essential to focus on the implant size that will offer the patient the natural results she seeks.

In reality, there is only one right size for a specific patient. A well-proportioned look requires the placement of implants that are neither too big nor too small in relation to the body.

Implants that are too big will make the breasts appear artificial and round. If the implants are too small, the breasts will look loose and empty on the top. The most beautiful outcomes from breast implant surgery are a result of accurate measurements. The surgeon will help the patient visualize how different sized implants will appear on the patient.

Astute plastic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and other cities and towns in this part of the country for breast implant surgery.

Natrelle INSPIRA 

Allergan Inc. is a premier manufacturer of breast implants in the US. The company has introduced three types of cohesive silicone gel breast implants under the brand name Inspira.

Natrelle INSPIRA Breast Implants by Allergan

Created with advanced technologies, these implants offer superior safety and aesthetics in breast augmentation plastic surgery. Highly cohesive Inspira line of implants offers greater upper pole fullness and is better suited for petite women.

During the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will discuss all the implant options with the patient and help her make the most appropriate selection according to her unique anatomical and cosmetic needs. Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by perceptive, stellar, and board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides Inspira implants by Allergan to patients in Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding locations in this part of the nation.

Implants for Every Woman

Allergan has introduced a full line of silicone gel implants because the breast anatomy of each woman is unique. Inspira implants come in various sizes and projections. A natural, soft feel is the hallmark of each implant type. Patients can have the fullness that is ideal for their body needs.

Gummy breast implants in the Inspira line by Allergan have a high consistency of the silicone gel in the implant. The gummy-like gel sticks together and maintains the shape of the implant even under pressure. Multiple levels of cohesiveness or gumminess are available in this implant type. Customized breast implant plastic surgery results can be created by using gummy implants.

Breast implants in the Natrelle Cohesive Collection by Allergan are soft with different levels of squishiness. At the time of initial consultation, the patient can check the softness of the implant and make her own choice. Making the right choice of implant is as important as selecting the right size. Implant selection must be based on the patient’s specific cosmetic goals and her unique body structure.

The fullness of Natrelle 410 gel breast implants resembles that of a woman’s real curves. These implants are created in an anatomical or teardrop shape instead of a round one. The gradually tapering slope of these implants mimics the natural curve of a woman’s breast. Varying projections, heights and widths in these implants are available to provide a shaped look that is just right for a woman.

Allergan says that more than 96 percent of women with Natrelle 410 Shaped Gel Breast Implants were still satisfied after 10 years.

Natrelle Inspira Advantages

Natrelle Inspira implants provide the same advantages as saline implants but without the limitations. These implants are designed with a 95 percent fill on average, which allows for greater projection at every width of the implant. As a result, more fullness in the upper pole of the breasts is possible with these implants.

More natural feel can be achieved with the softer gel varieties in Natrelle Inspira implants. Women who want a firmer and more cohesive implant feel will have the advantage of minimal rippling and longer lasting shape. These implants are best suited for women who want an enhanced fullness in the upper breast or a rounder breast appearance, or have thin breast tissue.

Women who need implants as part of breast reconstruction may also choose Natrelle Inspira implants. Profound, salient, and plastic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Virginia, and other towns and cities across the landscape for breast implant surgery.
