When to Get Smaller Breast Implants

Posted on May 14, 2013 | by

The popular perception of breast implants tends to revolve around the women who choose a large size. In the 90s, actress Pamela Anderson represented this look, as have many other women working in Hollywood during that time.

While implant size is a very personal choice, the large look may be going out of style. Many of today’s Hollywood ladies have chosen a more modest and manageable breast implant size, including Denise Richards, Victoria Beckham, and Drew Barrymore. Together they represent a trend toward smaller breast implants.

If you’re considering breast augmentation for the first time, know that smaller implants can still provide excellent results. And if you’ve had a previous breast augmentation with large implants, you might consider downsizing through a breast revision surgery.

Why Choose a Smaller Breast Implant Size?

There are many good reasons to choose a more modest implant size, including:

  • A proportional Shape
  • A natural appearance
  • Easier physical activity

When it’s time to choose a size, don’t over-analyze cup sizes or implant volume numbers. Visit a plastic surgeon who can measure you for the right implants, then try them on to find a look you like.

Although breast implant sizers can help, they don’t always match the actual results. New products like the Natrelle Pre Consultation kit can help as well. as they allow you to test out an implant size and find your desired look.
