What Makes Implants Feel Natural After Breast Augmentation

Scottsdale women considering breast augmentation should keep in mind that it usually takes up to six weeks or longer to see the final results of their procedure. It takes time for the implants to “drop” into position and for your body to adjust to their presence. But even before that happens, there are some pre-operation factors that will determine how natural your new implants feel.

  • Type of implant - The most popular type of implant right now is a new type of silicone that many Scottsdale patients call a “gummy bear” implant. These new implants feel very natural and can be custom shaped to your body. Saline implants still feel natural, but it may take longer.
  • Implant placement - Surgeons can place implants on top of the chest muscle or underneath it. Implants that are placed beneath the muscle tend to feel more natural.In some circumstances implants are placed on top of the muscle but to do this, the patient needs to have sufficient breast tissue there to cover the implant.
  • Implant size - The size of the implant also has a significant impact on how natural the results are from your breast augmentation. Scottsdale women that get much larger implants may experience less natural-feeling results than women who get smaller implants.
  • Current breast size - Finally, the pre-operation size of your breasts will also play a large role in how natural your breasts feel. The more tissue you have to start with the more natural your breasts will feel and the faster your body will be able to adjust to the implants after your breast augmentation.
