As much as we love to say it, the phrase “bigger is better” doesn’t always apply. When it comes to breast implant sizes, smaller may be the way to go. With the increasingly popular athletic look, more women are opting for modest increases in breast size to enhance their figure.
The latest trend in breast augmentation is smaller, natural-looking breast implants that will give women more subtle fullness. Wondering what size breast implants are most common? Find out why more women are choosing smaller breast implants to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results.
Why Smaller Breast Implants Are In
Gone are the days of big, bulky breasts. In the 80’s, 90’s and even early 2000’s, it was a status symbol for many women to have very noticeably augmented breasts.
Today, more women are requesting more modest breast implants for a subtle boost in volume. The plastic surgery world is noticing the shift as well, as most commonly requested implant size falls between 300 to 400 cubic centimeters, or ccs, which roughly translates to a large B to C cup for most women. This is significantly less than the large breast implants seen just a decade or two ago.
Subtle Breast Enhancement
Cosmetic surgery these days is all about natural-looking enhancement. Instead of making drastic changes to the face and body, men and women want subtle adjustments to simply enhance and build on their own unique beauty.
Many plastic surgeons are actually very happy about the change in breast size trends. By focusing on what looks natural, surgeons are able to spend more time working with each patient to create a very pleasing breast shape and position, instead of just focusing on making implants very large and noticeable. Smaller implants also have the additional advantage of causing less breast sagging over time, meaning that women with more subtle implants are likely to enjoy their look longer. Smaller breast implants are the new norm, and frankly, we’re loving the results.
