The majority of women considering breast augmentation in Brandon are interested in enhancing the size of their breasts while still achieving a natural-looking appearance. One of the biggest concerns for many women is that they will go “too big” with their breast size, and end up with breasts that are disproportionate to their body size. This coveted natural look can be achieve using both the traditional and natural breast augmentation methods. Read on to learn more about these two methods and what each one can do for you.

Traditional Breast Augmentation

A traditional breast augmentation entails the uses of breast implants to increase the size of the breasts. Silicone or saline implants can be used to achieve larger breasts. These implants come in many sizes and shapes, so patients can find the breast implant size that is right for them. During the procedure, an incision pattern will be used to create an opening for the breast implant to be placed into. Breast implants can create both an understated augmentation or a dramatic one, depending on the size of implant chosen.

Natural Breast Augmentation

Natural breast augmentation can benefit women who wish to achieve a more subtle increase in breast size. During this procedure, fat is harvested from other areas of the body using liposuction. This tissue will be collected, sterilized, and used to sculpt the breasts. Because natural breast augmentation uses the patient’s own fat cells to augment and contour the breasts, the risk of complication is very low.

While both forms of breast augmentation can create natural-looking results, one may be better suited for your individual goals. A consultation with Dr. Shienbaum can help to determine which procedure option is right for you!
