Are Smaller Implants More Popular?
Selecting the best implant size can significantly impact a patient’s overall satisfaction with her breast augmentation results. While women who chose breast augmentation years ago often wanted to substantially boost the size of their natural breasts, many women today have a different goal. Rather than selecting implants that might maximize the bustline, our patients are increasingly seeking to attain a proportionate figure that creates a natural-looking silhouette.
The reasons for the shift toward smaller implants vary from patient to patient. Many women are increasingly more active and invested in leading a healthy lifestyle. Smaller implants may be more conducive to participating in sports and other fitness activities, such as yoga, pilates, and CrossFit. Our more athletic patients typically desire a well-balanced body rather than breasts that are significantly larger than their frame.
Other women may choose smaller implants because their goal is to restore lost breast volume. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, or significant weight loss can all potentially alter the size and shape of the breasts. Many of the women who undergo these changes wish to restore their original size and shape rather than substantially increase the size of their breasts. Some of these patients might also benefit from a breast lift to reposition the breasts, remove excess skin that may cause sagging, and ultimately create a more youthful shape.
