Based off perception, it might come as a surprise that when women go for implants, smaller implants are what’s trending. ABC News reports on this in a recent article titled “Breast Augmentation: Smaller Implants Becoming a Bigger Trend.”
Genevieve Shaw Brown of ABC News writes, “Dr. Elie Levine, AOB Med Spa National Medical Director and New York City plastic surgeon agreed. ‘I’ve seen a significant change in the size of breast implants that my patients request for their breast augmentation surgery,’ he said. ‘Many women simply want to increase their bust by approximately one cup size.’ Levine said that while the most-requested cup size used to be a D or DD, now women more commonly request a B-cup or small C-cup size implants. ‘Celebrities are also requesting more modest results when they undergo breast augmentation surgery,’ he said. While he wouldn’t name names, Dr. Scot Glasberg, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons also said the celebrities he sees in his practice are opting to trade in their larger implants for smaller ones.”
The Digital Journal offers some advice on getting the best results out of a breast augmentation procedure in a recent article titled “Plastic Surgeon in Glendale Explains Keys for Optimal Breast Augmentation Results.” According to the author of the article, “A good candidate should be seeking one or more of the following:
- a wish to increase the size of her small breasts
- a desire to improve the appearance of her breasts
- to look much more attractive in a variety of articles of clothing
- to correct noticeable breast asymmetries
- to replace volume lost as a result of pregnancy and/or substantial weight loss
- to address minor breast drooping in addition to experiencing volume loss.”
