As much as we would like to proclaim that we live by the ancient proverb which states that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we constantly strive towards physical perfection. In a bid to look as picture-perfect as the models that adorn the fashion magazines of the world, we follow the latest beauty trends with frenzied interest, purchasing the latest fashion and cosmetics and even indulging in a variety of surgical cosmetic procedures. In total, nearly 1.8 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the USA during 2017. Not surprisingly Latest Breast Augmentation Trends Shifting Towards Natural Appeal topped the list with 300,378 procedures, up 3% from 2016 according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPA). Current plastic surgery trends indicate that natural-looking breasts are becoming more popular than obviously-enhanced ballooning bosoms. A number of procedures are fast gaining popularity in terms of rendering natural yet impressive breast augmentation results.
Latest Breast Augmentation Trends Shifting Towards Natural Appeal
The Laser Bra Lift
Pioneered by LA-based plastic surgeon Dr. Grant Stevens, the Laser Bra Lift is rivaling more traditional breast reduction and lift procedures this year. After noticing how lasers improve skin elasticity and smoothness during facelift surgery, Dr. Stevens realized that the same principle can be applied to breast tissue to create a more efficient, longer lasting and more natural breast lift. The procedure leaves the skin surrounding the breast intact, treating it with CO2 that creates the ‘internal bra’. One of the biggest advantages of the Laser Bra Lift is that it requires virtually no post-op care. While some patients do experience dry skin, it is completely normal and can be effectively treated with a body lotion that is rich in Vitamin E.
Natural breast implants
While silicone implants are considered safe and have been the first choice of both women and surgeons for many years, it still entails a foreign object being placed inside your body. It is for this very reason that natural breast implants in the form of fat transfers are gaining popularity so fast. According to the ASPS, fat transfer procedures have increased by as much as 72% between 2016 and 2017. A fat transfer breast augmentation requires fat to be taken from one part of the body such as the tummy, flanks or thighs and injected into the breasts. This procedure works best when only a moderate increase in size is required and results in a very natural-looking breast.
Making your breasts look best without plastic surgery
If you want to look your best without having to endure surgical procedures, you can follow a few basic guidelines to ensure you look good and feel confident every time you leave the house. Wearing a good bra is paramount to giving you the lift and support you need and will keep you looking perky without the pain usually associated with a breast lift. There is also a range of shapewear bras and bodysuits available that closely mimic the effects of plastic surgery. The line was created by the star of Dr. 90210, Dr. Robert Rey. If all else fails or if you want to simply make your natural cleavage look a bit more noticeable you can apply a bit of bronzer or highlighter in between your breasts to give them added depth.
Despite what is deemed trendy at the time, the only way you can ensure that you will get the desired results from your procedure is to enlist the services of a reputable and experienced plastic surgeon. Only go through with a procedure once you have done your research and you are 100% sure it is what you want as reversal surgery can be both costly and painful. It is generally recommended that you try all the non-surgical breast-boosting options first before opting for surgery.
