With 44 percent of women claiming to be unhappy with their natural breasts, it makes sense that celebrities feel the same. So it's no wonder they, and many women, opt for augmentation.
Augmentation is a permanent alternative to wearing padded push-ups, and it relies on either silicone or saline implants placed under, in between or over the muscle to add size, shape, proportion and cleavage.
“When it comes to choosing between implants and wearing a push-up bra, it’s all about quality of life and the naturalness of the result,” says Dallas plastic surgeon William P. Adams Jr., MD. “Push-up bras definitely work, but most women want to have a fuller or larger look all the time—with or without clothes. And the only thing that can produce those results are breast implants.”
Check out this gallery of celebrities we think have the best breasts—real or fake—on the red carpet and get info on how to get the most natural-looking breast implants.
Actress Sofia Vergara made the list thanks to her ample bosom and tiny waist, which creates a classic and supersexy figure. If your frame can handle larger breasts, your first step is determining what type of implants you want.
While both saline and silicone implants can offer a natural look when done right, each has its advantages and disadvantages. “In scientific studies and in real life, silicone implants perform equal to or better than saline implants, which are filled with salt water. They produce more of a natural feeling, although saline implants require less surveillance and don’t necessitate MRIs,” says Dr. Adams.
Adds Newport Beach, CA, plastic surgeon Sanjay Grover, MD, “Saline allows certain women to achieve a larger size than may be possible with silicone implants at a given time due to a tight skin envelope. If saline deflates, it is more quickly noticed as opposed to silicone.”
