A Trend in Smaller Implants: Has Less Become More?

The Orange County plastic surgery community has reported an increase in the request for smaller “fun size” breast implants.

Modest results now seem to be the sought after look for breast augmentation amongst many women. Where is this trend coming from exactly, and what may have inspired the new look?

It could possibly be the world of feminism, where we are seeing many women fight for their rights for breasts to be appreciated in the most natural ways. Mothers are fighting the notion of breasts as “sexual advertising tools”, and would appreciate the right to breastfeed modestly in public. There is also a trend being driven by celebrities that are downsizing their breast implants because they are heavily inspired by a more “natural look.” Reality star Erica Mena, Heather Morris, Pamela Anderson, and even Victoria Beckham have all embraced the idea of downsizing their breast implants, amongst many others.  According to ASPS President, Dr. Glasberg, “Celebrities are also requesting more modest results when they undergo breast augmentation surgery.”  Smaller enhancements may be a new way of grasping their natural beauty.

BREAST AUGMENTATION HAS BEEN THE LEADING COSMETIC SURGERY PROCEDURE FOR MANY YEARS.

The ASPS has reported that just under 290,000 women in 2014 have opted in for this procedure. However, viewing the numbers over the last couple of years indicates that they have remained steady, and the increase has been gradual since the year 2013, at 1%.

“Breasts are out, butts are in,” says Dr. Douglas Steinbrech in Manhattan. Will the Brazilian Butt Lift replace Breast Augmentation in upcoming years?  Not likely: Breast Augmentation has grown by 35% over the last 15 years. While we are seeing in certain communities a decline in the need for “huge breasts,” women are still itching to enhance their breast aesthetics, and in many cases, added volume is necessary.

THE IDEA MOST WOMEN HAVE FOR OPTING IN FOR ANY COSMETIC SURGERY PROCEDURE WOULD BE TO PERFECT, OR ENHANCE THEIR APPEARANCE.

Most plastic surgeons in Orange County would recommend the Gummy Bear Implant, as a comfortable solution that finds the balance between perfection, and modesty. This implant has a Teardrop shape which is thicker at the bottom and thinner at the top. It is filled with a form-stable silicone so they retain their shape.

The Gummy Bear Implant has clients asking plastic surgeons in Orange County how to obtain a true, more natural appearance and feel. It is best to meet with a board certified plastic surgeon, gather information, and gain proper understanding about this excellent option.
