Which Breast Implants and Placement Will Feel Most Natural?
One of the main questions patients have before undergoing a breast enhancement procedure is whether they'll look or feel natural. While implants would provide fake looking and feeling results in the past, that's not so much the case nowadays.
Much of this is attributed to two factors: the implant placement and the type of implant utilized.
The following article has the purpose of demonstrating the optimal implants and placement to offer you the most natural-looking results. Let's begin by explaining each one.
Silicone Gel Implants
Most patients choose silicone gel breast implants because they provide a more natural look and feel than saline implants.
Silicone gel implants are made of a flexible silicone outer casing filled with silicone gel, a substance that nicely mimics the feel of human fat and natural breast tissue.
Silicone gel implants come in various sizes, shapes, textures, and profiles, helpful in adapting to the patient's desired results.
Compared to saline implants, they're much lighter in the body and are less prone to rippling.
Gummy Bear Implants: Round vs. Teardrop Breast Implants
Gummy bear implants are a variation of silicone gel implants that retain their shape thanks to the thicker gel within the implant and teardrop-shaped casing.
Tear-drop-shaped implants have more fullness in the bottom and a tapered top, offering a more natural-looking breast enhancement.
Gummy bear implants are ideal for patients with slimmer profiles and less natural breast tissue with which to work. If you're someone that wants an anatomically correct breast shape that feels natural, then this option is excellent for you.
Breast Implant Placements
Breast implants can be placed over or under the chest muscle. Both have their pros and cons.
The over-the-muscle placement consists of the implant being placed between the chest muscle and breast tissue. With this placement, the implants tend to move less during physical activity and cause minor discomfort after the surgery.
Placing the implant under the pectoralis major muscle has the benefit of allowing patients to have more accurate mammograms in the future and is generally associated with a more natural-looking appearance.
