After deciding that breast implants are for you, your next decision is settling on the right size. Unlike people looking into liposuction procedures who often have the belief that smaller is better, those seeking breast implants may or may not think that bigger is better. With the introduction of breast implants this was a common view; however, smaller implants are becoming more and more popular. So, why is bigger not always better?
A More Natural Look and Feel
Larger implants tend to draw more attention and are often identifiable as implants. A smaller implant would mean filling out your clothes comfortably and adding definition to shape without calling excessive attention to your chest.
Your Medium is My Large
Bigger or smaller aren’t always the same in comparison with others because each body type merits an individual approach in determining what looks good and what doesn’t. Dr. Rowley will carefully give you the attention you need at your evaluation appointment to discuss size and all of the facets associated with that conversation, including shape. Finding a tailored fit for your body is incredibly important because something that looks good and natural on one person can look excessive and unnatural on another.
Too Much of a Good Thing
Getting breast implants does more than impact your appearance, it also impacts your lifestyle and ability to move. When weight is removed through liposuction, people often find that movement and exercise are much easier. Breast implants, however, add weight to your body and change your balance. Aerobic activities can be a bit tricky with larger breasts, and active individuals may find that while their new, larger breasts look great in a dress, they don’t feel great on the treadmill.
There Is No “big” or “small,” There Is Only “Just Right”
Ultimately, you need to get the breasts implants that you want. Most people who have a healthy self-image and realistic expectations of this procedure find that they are incredibly happy with their results. Women who get larger implants at the recommendation of a friend often find themselves eventually unhappy and returning for additional procedures to reduce the size of the implants. So do what makes you happy and love your body, because you’re beautiful!
