When using breast implants, implant size is important to consider, though large breast implants aren't always the most ideal option. Let's look at why small breast implants may be better for some patients.
While many people associate breast augmentation with getting very large breast implants, the fact of the matter is that getting small or relatively small breast implants can actually have positive results, and in some cases better results than getting much larger breast implants.
In essence, sometimes a woman just needs a slight increase in the overall size of her breasts rather than a dramatic increase in breast size. This can be achieved using small breast implants.
One of the key benefits of getting small breast implants is that the changes to the breast are conservative and yet impactful. Just adding a little more volume or altering the shape of the breasts a little bit can result in a much better overall body contour and shape. A major change can occur from simply getting small implants placed.
In general, getting small breast implants rather than large breast implants can lead to results that are more natural and more subtle. This means that it is less likely for people to notice that you have undergone a breast augmentation procedure. If you select a hidden scar incision method (e.g., the transaxillary incision under the armpit, or the transumbilical incision in the belly button), the evidence of the surgical procedure will be minimal.
Small breast implants tend to have a lower rate of complications and carry fewer risks than large breast implants. This is especially important if a patient is more likely to experience serious complications of some kind.
If a patient has more dramatic aesthetic goals or needs, the use of larger breast implants may be recommended. This is especially important to consider if a patient is trying to add considerable volume to her breasts.
In addition to breast implant size, it's important to discuss issues of breast implant shape and profile as well. Various considerations for implant placement and the general nature of the implant can lead to different outcomes in appearance when it comes to the overall end results of a procedure.
