How Can I Get a Natural-Looking Breast Augmentation Result?

Natural Breast AugmentationIn this day and age, breast augmentation patients have a vast array of implant options to choose from, all of which are intended to help women enhance the size and shape of their breasts with beautiful results. While saline and traditional silicone implants have certainly proved to provide natural-looking outcomes for countless individuals, anatomically shaped cohesive gel implants are widely considered to create the most natural look for ideal candidates.

Also called “gummy bear” or “form-stable” implants, anatomically shaped cohesive gel implants have been available in Europe for several years prior to their relatively recent FDA approval in the United States. Currently, the FDA has approved Sientra®, Mentor® and Allergan cohesive gel implants to be used exclusively by board certified plastic surgeons. Uniquely designed in a teardrop shape, this advanced implant option is rounded at the base and tapers toward the top, enabling a seamless blend with the chest wall for exceptionally natural-looking results. As an added benefit, anatomically shaped cohesive gel implants are composed of a thicker, more durable silicone gel that enables them to hold their shape better than their round counterparts.

Ultimately, all breast implant options have unique qualities. By seeking the expertise of a board certified plastic surgeon, breast augmentation patients can ensure they are properly advised about which type of implant may help them achieve the most natural-looking results based on their unique needs and goals.
