4 Ways Doctors Ensure Breast Implants Look Natural

Breast augmentation has helped thousands of Montreal women achieve their ideal physique, but many people still have the misconception that breast implants rarely look natural after the augmentation process is complete. In this article, we’ll look at the techniques that board-certified plastic surgeons, like myself, use to ensure breast implants look as natural as possible on every patient.

Natural Looking Breast Implants

1. Measuring the Body and the Implant Size

To help ensure the optimal balance between the size of the implant and the size of the patient, surgeons measure patients closely before their procedure. They can also help guide patients in making a decision about the various implant sizing options available to them, based on their unique physiques.

An advantage of the latest scanning technology is that surgeons can now take a picture of the patient before the procedure and show them the potential result with implants of various sizes. This process empowers patients in selecting the right implant.

2. Harnessing Surgical Techniques

The development of new surgical techniques is helping specialists improve the appearance of their breast implant work. Now, many specialists place the implant under the pectoralis major muscle in the chest. This helps to increase the amount of natural tissue covering the implant and prevents the rippling that can be seen in some patients who have had breast augmentation surgery.

3. Use of Silicone Over Saline

Another way that surgeons can increase the likelihood that breasts look natural after augmentation is through the use of silicone rather than saline implants. In addition to helping ensure the breast looks better, silicone ensures the breast also feels more natural as well. Another advantage of silicone breast implants is that, unlike saline, they cannot leak and won’t deflate over time.

4. Using the Natural Breast Tissue

Using patients’ existing breast tissue is another way that surgeons can help provide natural results. For patients with a large amount of breast tissue to shape, the use of this tissue can minimize the need for a larger implant.

Professionals throughout the breast augmentation field are always developing and utilizing new techniques to achieve outstanding results within their work.

Choosing Your Implant Size

When considering a cosmetic surgery procedure like getting breast implants in Montreal, sometimes the sheer number of choices can be overwhelming. Luckily, thanks to a wide variety of implant options, it is possible to get implants that look and feel wonderfully natural.

Breast Implant Size

The most important thing to remember is to keep it simple; there are only two things you really need to consider and that is:

  1. How you want to look, and
  2. How your implants fit into your lifestyle.


Beyond that, your surgeon will be able to help you find the exact right size for your body. But before you get started with your surgeon, here are some important things to consider:

1. Limits

One of the main limits that will affect how large you can go is your current breast size. You will need to have enough breast tissue to cover the implant so some may not fit if you haven’t got much breast tissue to share. Another hard limit to the size of your implants is your chest and shoulder width. Implants come in a large variety of base widths in order to fit your frame.

2. Lifestyle

Because implants are meant to be a long-term investment, you will want to make sure that the size you choose will fit your lifestyle. Talk to your surgeon about your activity level to ensure you do not choose implants that are too large to allow you to enjoy your favorite activities. Because breast implants are subject to the effects of aging and gravity, it is important to ensure you are wearing the right level of breast support for your favorite activities.

If you prefer to go braless most of the time, you may wish to consider smaller implants in order to lessen the effects of gravity over time.

3. Symmetry

One of the main reasons that women decide to get implants is to correct asymmetrical breasts. Undergoing this procedure is a great way to achieve the symmetrical bust you want in the size of your dreams, but it is important to discuss these issues with your surgeon during the consultation. Explain carefully exactly how you want your breasts to look in order to make sure you are both on the same page.

Many cosmetic surgeons will allow you to take a “test drive” of a variety of implant sizes during your consultation procedure. This involves using a specially designed bra to try out different sizes, shapes, and profiles to find that one that is most flattering for your body. Be sure to try on as many as possible, even ones you think are too big or too small, as it can be hard to visualize until you try them for yourself.
