Three Ways To Prevent Your Breast Augmentation From Appearing Unnatural

If you're the type of person who is thinking about breast augmentation but doesn't want to look as though she has gone through this procedure, there's good news — there are several ways that you can keep from appearing as though you have unnatural breasts. Whereas some women aren't ashamed of it being highly evident that they've been through this procedure, others are a little more discreet about their appearance. Book a breast augmentation consultation with your local cosmetic surgeon to discuss your preferences for this procedure and evaluate these three ways to keep your augmentation from appearing unnatural.

Don't Go Too Big

One of the biggest signs that a woman has had breast augmentation is that her breasts are several cup sizes larger than they used to be. While this might be OK for some women, you may not wish to find yourself in this situation. A simple way for you to avoid looking surgically enhanced is to select an augmentation that won't dramatically increase your breast size. You can often have just a small increase that will allow you to reach your physical goals but in a subtle fashion. For example, you could go from a B32 bra size to a B36.

Don't Get A Lift

Some women's breast augmentation is evident not necessarily because of the size increase, but because they also pair this procedure with a breast lift. The latter procedure is a valuable partner for having your breast augmentation, but it can make your breasts look a little unnatural if the lift is significant. Consider your age and the natural position of your breasts. If you're in your late 40s and get your breasts lifted to a position that they might have been when you were a teenager, it may look strange. Augmenting the breasts but not lifting them (or only lifting them moderately) can provide more of a natural look.

Opt For Fat Transfer

An alternative to breast implants is fat transfer augmentation. This procedure uses your own body fat, collected through liposuction, to increase the size of your breasts. One of the biggest advantages of this type of augmentation is that it gives your breasts a natural look. Whereas breasts with implants can sometimes look abnormally round, making it evident to those around you that you've had them augmented, fat transfer augmentation is unlikely to have this same visual effect—and that might be exactly what you're looking for.
