Whether you were born with small breasts or they’ve changed in size and shape over time, attaining nice breasts that suit your body is something we all want. Historically, implants were linked to big, fake-looking breasts. Today, there has been a shift in thinking, and everyone from A-list celebrities to housewives are open to the idea of obtaining better breasts that look natural. Below are four factors that can contribute to an unnatural look:
1. Improper proportion. Choosing an implant (size and shape) that doesn’t look like it naturally belongs on your body can be a dead giveaway that your breasts are fake. The best way to avoid this is to select a size that looks like it naturally fits your body by trying on different sizes and profiles at your doctor’s office.
2. Implant placement. If there is little tissue and body fat, placing the implant over the muscle can make the edges of the implant stick out and look “bolted on.” If the pocket is not made large enough to hold the implant, it can ride up and sit too high.
3. Limited choices. In the past few years, surgeons have become privy to more choices-in terms of fillers and types of implants-than in the past. Besides choosing between silicone and saline, there are also different profiles (how far the implant projects out from the body) available.
4. Overfilled saline implants. When overfilled, saline implants retain their round shape and don’t mimic the look of natural breast tissue.
