The Subtle Breast Augmentation

One of the most popular procedures I perform is breast augmentation. With many cosmetic plastic surgery patients from Sacramento and nearby Folsom and Roseville, CA, I can 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, Natural-Looking 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 implants 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. We may also suggest combining your breast augmentation with a breast lift to enhance breast size, volume, and position.

We discuss all of these issues at your one-on-one consultation to ensure your choices fit your unique body shape and goals. To learn more about important questions to ask at your breast augmentation consultation, read our related blog post.

Customizable Implant Features

There are many options available to help you create a proportionally aesthetic look. My team and I guide you through these choices to help you achieve your desired results. Your breast implant options include:

  • Material: Breast implant material can be silicone or saline.
  • Shape: Implants come in both round and shaped (“anatomic”) forms.
  • Size: Determining breast implant size is a highly personal choice that I help you navigate during your consultation.

You can learn more about customizable implant options from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

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.

Creating a fully customized treatment plan with your surgeon gives you the freedom to seek a result that matches your natural body proportions while bringing your dream look to life. Breast augmentations fits 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.
