Breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures I perform at my Sacramento office. With so many patients coming in from the city and nearby Folsom, I often spot trends or patterns in the requests I receive. Lately, I’ve noticed a surge in women looking for a subtle breast augmentation that will enhance their look without creating an over-the-top transformation.
I’m not the only surgeon to have experienced this. Allure reports that “tweak-ments,” or procedures designed to refine features rather than completely change them, are a growing trend in plastic surgery offices across the country.
A Subtle Approach
The goal of this treatment style is to create a “Photoshopped” or filtered version of your appearance while remaining true to your natural look. You will still look like you, but with slight adjustments designed to help you feel flawless and fresh.
With these procedures, the telltale signs associated with past plastic surgery trends are less apparent. Rather than flaunting heavily filled lips or sharply sculpted cheekbones, patients highlight their best features with gentle corrections and enhancements. The result is not an entirely new look, but a rejuvenated and refined one that remains true to each patient’s unique assets.
Personalizing Your Breast Augmentation
The key to creating a natural look when it comes to breast augmentation is honoring your body’s natural proportions. Breast augmentation is a highly customizable surgery with a variety of options for each patient’s individual needs. Size, shape, material, incision location and implant placement all play a role in personalizing your procedure and ensuring your results are ideal for you.
Customizable Implant Features
- Material: Breast implant material can be silicone or saline.
- Shape: Implants come in both round and shaped (“anatomic”) forms.
- Size: Size is fully adjustable, and your surgeon can offer their recommendations for an ideal proportional size during your consultation.
Incisions and Placement
Incision or scar location and placement above or below the pectoral muscle are further factors you can discuss with your surgeon to create an enhancement that is in line with both your aesthetic goals and your lifestyle needs.
Having options for creating a custom treatment plan gives women the freedom to seek a result that matches the proportions of their body and brings their dream look to life. Breast augmentations fit seamlessly into the trend of subtle and natural-looking plastic surgery enhancements, and women of every body type now have more options than ever for creating a shape they love without going to the extreme.
