Choosing the Most Natural Looking Breast Implants

There may be many reasons why you choose a breast augmentation; it may be to enhance your appearance or increase your confidence. Whatever your own personal reason, you will find that not all breast enhancements are the same, and there is a wide choice with breast implants of all sorts of shapes and sizes.

It’s important for you and your surgeon to work together to pick the right option for your desired shape and size.

Can Implants Look Natural?

When you are considering cosmetic surgery for breast enhancement, you may be concerned that your breasts should still look realistic and natural. There are several ways this can be achieved from fat transfer surgery to under-the-muscle implants. The next generation of smooth, soft, safer natural looking breast implants do not leak and they create shape, softness and cleavage making the choice altogether easier.

Let’s have a look at some of the options available to you for natural looking breasts.

Is Saline or Silicone Best for Natural Breast Implants?

Saline implants are more prone to rippling because they are filled with a watery substance, whereas silicone which has the same soft consistency as natural breast tissue. Saline implants often feel more firm than natural breast tissue, and can sometimes be overfilled to avoid the rippling or wrinkling of the implant.

Do Under The Muscle Implants Look Natural?

For natural looking breast implants, placing the implant under the muscles gives a natural shape.

Placing the implants under the muscle approach involves placing the implants below the chest muscle which can be a good option for women with little breast tissue, as the muscle offers greater coverage. The results tend to look more natural than breasts that are placed above the muscle.

What Will Make Breast Implants Look Natural?

Everyone has a perfect outcome in mind and if a look and feel of a natural breast is what you are aiming for, the Joy Ergonomix2 Motiva® natural looking breast implant could be exactly what you are looking for. They use enhanced ergonomy for personalised results with extra-soft feel and natural movements: they give an elastic, advanced, smooth implant. Smooth walled implants roll around in their breast pocket, mimicking the movement of a natural breast. They are soft to the touch and designed to feel even more like a part of your body.

Silicone implants on the whole tend to produce the most natural looking implants. Here at N1 Plastic Surgery, in our Joy Ergonomix2 Motiva® implants, we use a gel with a unique set of rheological properties. The term rheology originates from the Greek words ‘rheo’ meaning ‘flow’ and ‘ology’ meaning ‘the study of. This means that our gel is more adaptable to change than other silicones and therefore resembles the movement of natural tissue and creates natural looking breast implants.

Will My Implants Move Naturally?

The Motiva Ergonomix2® is designed to move with your body. An ergonomics principle was applied to the design so that the implant behaves as naturally as possible. The unique features of our Ergonomix2® take breast implants to the next level with improved properties and technologies: a smooth surface that improves biocompatibility. Biocompatibility is what makes the implant compatible with living tissue.

What Is The Breast Implant Projection?

It’s important to consider how implants will look in profile: how far they project from the chest wall of your body. The ideal profile will change from patient to patient based on the patient’s body proportions and the result they are seeking to achieve. Low profile implants have the smallest forward projection and tend to be the best fit for those looking to balance a wider frame and seek a more natural end result. Moderate Profiles give a fairly natural, round fullness with plenty of volume. They are particularly popular for those who are looking to create the appearance of a wider chest.

What Is Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer?

Fat transfer may be a good solution for you if you would like a more natural breast augmentation and you would prefer to not have a breast implant. However, breast enlargement with fat transfer is not suitable for patients with a low BMI as the fat needs to be taken by liposuction from other parts of the body with excess fat, such as thighs or stomach.

This option can be great for restoring shape and volume, particularly if you have lost some of that due to pregnancy or breastfeeding. It offers great control over the breast augmentation and can be repeated once should you wish to increase the size or volume at a later date.

The advantages are:

Breasts look and feel natural
No implants are used
Small incisions are needed
Uses woman’s own fat
low complication rate

Hybrid Breast Augmentation

A hybrid breast augmentation is a breast enlargement procedure combining both implants and your own fat. If you’re looking to immediately and dramatically increase the size of your breasts in one procedure, then this may not be for you.

It’s popular with women who want to make smaller changes made over time. The main benefit of this type of practise is that the surgeon will be able to sculpt the breast shape into a natural looking breast implant as there will be a layer of malleable fat around the implant. This procedure is also popular with breast replacement procedures and women who wish to reduce the size of their already augmented breasts.
