What Women Want From Their Breast Implants By Constance M. Barone, M.D. on January 29, 2020

Changing Silhouette


Starting in the 1950s figures like Marilyn Monroe made big busts popular. With the advent of the modern breast implant in 1962, women could finally enhance their breast size with relative safety. For a long time breast enhancement meant getting DDs or bigger, with the desirable silhouette being feminine and curvy. Women who had augmentations often commented “I’m glad I ended up going bigger than I planned!” 

However, plastic surgeons across the country have noticed a trend over the past decade toward smaller bust sizes and a more athletic silhouette. Breast augmentations are still a popular cosmetic procedure, continuing to grow year after year. But, women are now more content with a small boost in size.


What Women Really Want From Their Breast Implants


What do women really want from their breast augmentations? They want a subtle, natural looking enhancement. Women are less interested in having the biggest breasts, and more interested in looking proportional. They want to increase their self esteem and fit into the clothes they love. They do not want to buy a whole new wardrobe to accommodate a bigger bust.


New Technologies For Natural Enhancement


Dr. Barone offers several options for breast enhancements that look and feel natural. Some women find that a simple breast lift is all they need to gain the youthful, perky silhouette they want. Fat transfer breast augmentation uses your own fat, harvested through liposuction, to enhance your bust. This type of breast enhancement is a good option for women who only want a small size boost and do not want implants. The IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant is a saline-filled implant with an internal structure that provides a natural look and feel.
