Beautiful breasts come in all shapes and sizes. The same is true when it comes to breast augmentation with implants. There is no one-size-fits-all beauty standard for breast enhancement. How can there be when every woman is different? Sexiness is not determined by the size of the implant but by how you carry it. At Feel Beautiful, we believe implants should be used not just to enlarge the breasts but to beautify them. If you’re considering breast augmentation but you’re stuck on the idea that bigger is better, read on. In many cases, smaller implants are the better choice. Here are some of the advantages of smaller breast implants.
Many of today’s plastic surgery patients are leaning towards a more natural look. Breast augmentation is as popular as ever, but subtlety is trending. Smaller breast implants can produce sexy, natural-looking results.
Larger breast implants result in less fatty tissue between the implant and the outer breast wall. Because of this, they tend to feel firmer than natural breasts. Smaller implants, on the other hand, typically retain more fatty tissue and feel more natural to the touch.
Conducive to active lifestyle
When choosing your breast implant size, it’s important to consider the impact they may have on your lifestyle. If you like to jog, surf, work out at the gym, or participate in high energy physical activity, smaller breast implants may be the more comfortable choice for you.
Large breast implants that are out of proportion with your body structure can put unnecessary strain on your back, neck, or shoulders. Smaller implants that are better supported by your frame can help keep your spine in alignment and prevent chronic pain associated with excess breast weight.
Shorter recovery time
Larger breast implants tend to come with a longer recovery time. Smaller breast implants have the advantage of getting you back to your routine in a shorter amount of time.
Another advantage of smaller breast implants is that they have a lower risk of complications such as capsular contracture and rippling. Thinning skin and a loss of sensation are also less likely to occur with smaller implants. Although these complications can happen with any size of implant, smaller implants carry a much smaller risk.
Lower risk of sagging
The additional weight of large breast implants can take its toll on breast tissue, especially for those whose breast tissue is thin to begin with. Smaller breast implants decrease your risk of scarring, developing stretch marks, and sagging prematurely.
Subtlety is one of the best benefits of smaller breast implants. In a conservative work environment, for example, larger breast implants may draw unwanted attention. A breast implant in a more modest size will give you more control over how and when to draw attention to your breasts.
Of course, not everyone is looking for subtlety, and smaller implants are not the right choice for everyone. If you want large breast implants, then without a doubt, that’s what you should get! At Feel Beautiful in San Diego, we believe that the right choice is the one that’s most comfortable for you.
