As the number one plastic surgery in the country for seven years running, many women are wondering what they can do to help their breast augmentation achieve their best results. While choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon is still the obvious first step, here are three tips to help you achieve your best breasts.
#1 Don’t bring in a picture for your plastic surgeon to copy
You’ve probably walked into the hair salon before, handing the stylist a picture of your “perfect hair style” that you grabbed from a magazine, but when you were turned around to face the mirror, it just didn’t quite look the same on you. This can also happen when going into your plastic surgeon’s office for your breast augmentation consultation. Rather than having your surgeon attempt to imitate an image of a celebrity or model whose breasts you like, your surgeon will work with you to find the right size while considering your personal factors such as the size of your rib cage, breast width and shoulder width among many others. Instead of trying to copy someone else’s breasts, your plastic surgeon will help you achieve the best breasts for you.
#2 Stick with natural looking implants
Choosing the right implants can help maintain a natural appearance for your breasts. Implants that are too big can create a wide and bony gap between your breasts. Oversized implants can also cause the breasts to look unnatural when lying on your back because they may not fall naturally to the sides. To maintain a natural appearance, you will also want to avoid implants that make the breasts look too rounded or as full on top as they are on the bottom when seen in profile. Your plastic surgeon will help you choose the right kind of implant and size to help you achieve the natural look that you desire.
#3 Once your surgery is complete, maintain your breasts properly
After your breast augmentation, there are several things that you can do to help maintain them. Sun exposure breaks down collagen and skin elasticity which may lead to drooping of the breasts overtime. While implants do not make the breasts any more vulnerable to sagging, the existing natural breast tissue must still be protected from excessive sun exposure by covering up and using sunscreen.
