Want bigger and perkier boobs? But you don't want them to look fake. You also don't want them to feel heavy or bulky. You just want your new boobs to feel natural as if they've always been there and they're parts of you. But is it possible to achieve this through breast augmentation surgery? Are there breast implants that can give you that natural look and feel?

Absolutely, yes! But there are many things that come into play, from the type of the implant, through its shape and size to the plastic surgeon performing the breast augmentation procedure.

Throughout this article, we will discuss all factors that can affect how natural your breasts will appear following plastic surgery with implants. Keep reading to learn more.

Which breast implants feel more natural?

While both silicone and saline implants can increase the volume and improve the appearance of your breast, silicone implants offer more natural-feeling results. The silicone gel substance, which is the main component of these types of breast implants, has the ability to closely replicate the natural breast tissue.

However, not all silicone devices are the same. Over time, the standard silicone prostheses have been considerably improved in order to provide much better outcomes. Some of the variations of silicone gel implants that feel most natural are Motiva breast implants and the so-called gummy bear breast implants.

Silicone gel breast implants

Silicone implants are artificial breast augmentation devices that are made of silicone material. Unlike their saline counterparts which are infused with saline solution, silicone breast implants are pre-filled with silicone gel. One of the main perks of the silicone gel substance is that it closely imitates the real tissue of the breast. This makes silicone breast implants one of the most widely used breast augmentation devices.

Here are some of the advantages these types of breast implants offer

  • They provide more natural outcomes than saline breast implants.
  • They have a softer texture that closely replicates the natural breast tissue.
  • Silicone gel implants feel lighter compared to saline breast implants.
  • There is no rippling or wrinkling effect when the body is moving.

Traditional silicone implants have been on the market for many years. They have helped millions of women around the world to feel more confident, more attractive and better about themselves. They have been life-changing for many breast cancer patients who have lost their breasts following mastectomy.

When to choose traditional silicone implants?

If you are looking for a breast augmentation option that will not make your boobs look fake and will not cost you too much money, then traditional silicone implants might be the right choice for you. They are suitable for almost every woman. Available in various shapes and sizes, silicone breast implants can be fully customized to meet your specific needs.

Gummy bear breast implants

Generally speaking, the so-called gummy bear breast implants are an improved variation of traditional silicone implants. The difference with these more advanced devices is that they are made from highly cohesive and more stable silicone gel which has the ability to preserve its shape. They also offer several advantages.

  • They have a teardrop shape that resembles the actual mould of the breast.
  • Gummy bear implants are more stable compared to standard silicone gel implants.
  • They are also less prone to ruptures and leakage.
  • With gummy bear implants, your breasts will be naturally soft to the touch.

Gummy bear implants can make your breasts look real and feel natural. They have a form of teardrop providing more volume in the lower part of the breast. This makes them an ideal option for skinny women who want to enhance their boobs without making them disproportionate to the rest of the body.

When to choose gummy bear breast implants?

You may want to consider gummy bear implants if your goal is to achieve anatomically correct breast shape and avoid a fake look with breast augmentation. However, it is good to be aware of the fact that they will cost you more money than regular silicone and saline implants. The other disadvantage of gummy bear implants is they often require a longer incision as a result of which a larger scar is left behind. Be sure to keep that in mind when deciding whether this implant is right for you.

Motiva breast implants

Motiva is a leading breast implants brand. It offers new generation breast enlargement devices that are specially designed to provide very natural looking and feeling outcomes. Breast implants by Motiva are made of medical-grade silicone material. Their shape and texture closely resemble the form and tissue of the natural breasts.

Motive breast implants have numerous advantages some of which are listed below:

  • They are smooth implants made from a special silicone gel that is very soft in touch and feels like natural breast tissue.
  • They have the ability to adjust to the movements of the body, maintaining a round form when you are laying down and teardrop when you are upright.
  • Motiva implants are designed in a way that makes insertion into the body easier and requires a smaller incision.
  • There is no rippling effect during body movements.

Of course, these great features come with some extra expenses. The cost of Motiva implants is typically higher compared to that of other breast augmentation options. However, if the natural result is something you really care about then it might be worth investing in such implants.

When to choose Motiva breast implants?

When you want implants that will feel natural and comfortable, that will blend with your body and will provide you with an aesthetically pleasing look, then Motiva breast implants are definitely the way to go. They are an ideal option for active ladies who want implants that flow with their bodies while doing different sports.

What other factors affect the natural appearance of breast implants?

In addition to the type of implant, there are also other factors that will have a great impact on how natural will feel and look your new boobs. These are the size and shape of the implant as well as the implant placement technique used by the plastic surgeon.

Breast implant size

Obviously, if you want to avoid fake-looking boobs then you shouldn’t go too big with implants. But how much is too much? It will be different for every patient. The size of the implant should be chosen based on your needs so that your body appears proportionate.

During your initial consultation, your surgeon will help you determine the suitable size for you using your existing breast tissue, anatomy and breast measurements. The implant which fits you well could be at any volume. In addition, a particular size implant might appear completely natural on your body but look quite fake on the body of other women. That is why the size of the implant should be personalized based on the patient’s anatomy.

Only a skilled and board-certified plastic surgeon can determine what breast implant size will look most natural on your body.

Breast implant shape

In general, you can choose between two main implants shapes - round and teardrop (anatomical). It is usually considered that anatomical implants provide a more realistic look since their design is similar to the natural shape of the breast. On the other hand, round breast implants feel more comfortable because they can rotate freely without affecting symmetry.

The teardrop implant is more full at the bottom than it is at the top. Thus, it might be really useful for patients who have droopiness or constructed lower pole (tightness in the bottom part of the breasts). Anatomical implants might be also ideal for very thin women. However, they are more likely to cause wrinkling, rippling and other complications.

If your breasts are normal, and you do not have any droopiness or tightness in the bottom part, then you can achieve very good and natural results with round implants. In addition, round breast implants have a lower complication rate than teardrop shape implants.

Surgical technique

There are two general methods plastic surgeons use for placing breast implants – under the muscle and over the muscle. It is typically considered that plastic surgery procedures in which the implants are placed under the muscle tend to provide a more natural feel.

The under the muscle technique which is also called submuscular involves covering the implant with a layer of muscle tissue. In contrast, subglandular describes placement on top of the muscle. The implant in both cases is completely under the breast tissue.

The reason there can be a visible difference between the two approaches is that for thin women with minimal fat and small natural breasts the subglandular position may allow the implant outline to be seen under the skin. For small breasts patients, plastic surgeons usually advise the extra cover of chest muscle which can be achieved through placing implants over the muscle.

Natural-looking breast implants: What is the role of the plastic surgeon?

Your plastic surgeon is the one who will consult you, who will assess your body, take measurements and suggest the most suitable implants for you. The surgeon is also the one who is going to conduct your breast augmentation surgery and help you achieve the look you want.

First of all, it is crucial to carefully choose the doctor you will work with. The physician must also know what you are looking for, what your goals are and how you envision your new bust after your plastic surgery procedure.

An experienced plastic surgeon listens to your goals and creates a customized plan whether you want natural feeling breasts or a more augmented look.

To conclude

When it comes to breast augmentation, some women picture large, round and firm looking breasts while others are looking to achieve subtle, more natural proportions. Cosmetic breast enhancement procedures are personal and somewhat subjective. A breast augmentation that looks fake, however, is not something that most ladies desire.

There are many factors that may affect the final results of breast implant surgery. One of the most important, however, comes down to the doctor performing the procedure. By choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon who has extensive experience in breast enhancement, you can be certain you will get the outcomes you desire.
