What Looks And Feels The Most Natural With Breast Implants?

When it comes to choosing breast enlargement, what kind of breast implants you choose is nearly as important as the surgeon you pick. The type, shape, and size of breast implants can change the look of your breasts post-surgery dramatically, after all. So if you're wondering what will give you the most natural look, then read on to discover the main differences between breast implants and how they look and feel.


For starters, there's no one definition of 'natural' or appropriate for a woman. It's ultimately your decision on what you're looking for. For example, some women want to have ample push-up style cleavage, while others are looking for a more tapered look with fullness in the center, rather than at the top where the breast emerges from the chest. Thankfully, all of these options are possible with the various types of implants available today.


For starters, if you're looking for that push-up look, you're probably going to want round breast implants. Round breast implants are perfect spheres that produce a symmetrical, rounded appearance in the breast. This means that the bottom and top of the breast alike curve outward, without the need for a bra pushing them up into place.

However, there are other options, as well. Teardrop-style breast implants are gaining more popularity for their 'natural' look — in this case, meaning that the breast stays relatively even throughout, and takes on a more cylindrical shape, tapering at the bottom near the nipple. With this style, a push-up bra can still help you to achieve the mound-like cleavage at the top of the breast, but it typically won't form naturally on its own without that support.


Another thing to consider when it comes to picking a natural-style breast implant is the feel. There are typically three main types to choose from that impact this: saline, silicone, or gummy bear.

Saline breast implants tend to be the least natural-feeling breast when the breast tissue is pushed on or palpated. That doesn't mean they're bad; they're just a little less like a real breast.

In comparison, silicone and gummy bear implants are often praised for their ability to produce a firm, but pliable, breast after implantation. The main difference between the two is that standard silicone implants are made of fluid silicone, which can shift around a bit when you lie down or bend over. In comparison, gummy bear implants are made with a gel-like form of silicone, so they're not as responsive to movement.

Ultimately, the decision is between you and your surgeon. If you're not sure what's right for you, don't hesitate to reach out to a breast implant surgeon with your questions.
