The Supernatural Breast Augmentation
The public perception of breast augmentation is that it is for people who want to have huge breasts that are out of proportion with their bodies and that it is unnecessary surgery. As a plastic surgeon with a practice dedicated to breast augmentation, I have to tell you that this is far from the truth.
Cosmetic surgery has a reputation for being for people who are vain and don’t really need the surgery, but in fact, cosmetic surgery patients have one of the highest patient satisfaction levels than any other group of patients. One of the most important things that a doctor can do, is to improve a patient’s quality of life and breast augmentation is one of those operations that has a profound effect on self-esteem and quality of life. Additionally, because we are usually treating young patients, this benefit is felt for many years to come, which makes breast augmentation one of the most worthwhile operations there are in terms of improvement in quality of life when adjusted for years of life that the patient has to be able to benefit from it.
Who Needs a Breast Augmentation?
The majority of my patients are either mothers who have lost shape and volume in their breasts, or patients who have always had breasts that are out of proportion with their frame in that they are either too big, too small or asymmetrical. Most people are looking for a natural result that is in keeping with their figure and the majority do not want to look fake or top heavy. This is in line with recent trends away from large round implants towards the more couture boob job where a modest, natural augmentation is achieved.
The ‘Natural Breast Augmentation’
During my consultations with patients, I go through my portfolio of cases and I show photographs of patients with all different sizes, shapes and projections of implants. I have noticed that when patients look at the teardrop implants, or low profile round implants “ the implants that are often associated with a more natural look “ they comment that they don’t want to look too natural!
The ‘Supernatural Breast Augmentation’
I am finding that patients are increasingly wanting some fullness in their breasts and while they don’t want to look fake, they do want some roundness in what I would call the ‘supernatural look’ “ like the natural look but with a bit more. This is achieved by choosing an implant that will complement the frame in terms of the width of the implant and with a certain degree of roundness that can fill up the upper part of the breast, which is often empty, particularly following child birth or weight loss. This ‘supernatural breast augmentation’ gives patients back what that had before, or feel that they have always had missing, plus a bit more. It gives the breasts a fullness and perkiness that might be associated with a push up bra but without looking fake or out of proportion.
