How to Get What You Want From Breast Augmentation Surgery

No two breast augmentations are alike. Even women who choose identical breast implants will have different results because of anatomical differences. The best way to ensure that you will be satisfied with your breast augmentation results is to communicate well with your surgeon. Below are a few choice words that can help you describe your desired appearance.

Breast Augmentation Before and After Photos

Words That Can Describe Your Desired Look

  • Voluptuous: Your breasts are a spotlighted focal feature, larger than what is generally considered proportionate yet still very attractive and alluring.
  • Fake: Your breasts are obviously and unnaturally large, which is even more apparent at the top. You can easily draw attention in a crowd, and people will assume that you have breast implants.
  • Natural: Your breasts look bigger yet still natural enough so that those who don’t know you couldn’t be quite confident that you had a breast augmentation.
  • Conservative: Your breasts are somewhat subtly augmented – enough to make a noticeable difference to you and maybe to close acquaintances but not to others. It could be considered to be an understated augmentation.
  • Perky: Your breasts have a more firm, outward projection with fullness higher up.
  • Youthful: Your breasts are full and perky, with upper pole fullness and lift.
  • Feminine: Your breasts are shapely and highlight your natural feminine curves. If you have wide hips and a narrow waist, your surgeon may interpret that you want larger implants for a full hourglass figure. If you have narrow hips and a straight waist, your surgeon may interpret that you want smaller implants to add subtle feminine softness to your figure. This word is best used in combination with others to better convey your meaning.
  • Athletic or sporty: Your breasts fit your athletic body type and appear tight and close to the chest.
  • Proportionate: Your breasts appear balanced with your body frame. The word “proportionate” is subjective, so this word is best used in combination with others to truly convey your meaning.
  • Round: Your breasts are round with upper pole fullness and perhaps more cleavage.
  • Full or filled out: Your breasts have greater volume.
  • Enhanced cleavage: Your breasts have more cleavage. While not possible for every woman due to anatomic realities, various implants may help to achieve more cleavage for some women.
  • Curvy: Your breasts have more roundness, volume, and width.

Additional Words to Discuss

  • Size: Your desired breast cup size does not directly correlate to a particular implant size because your amount of natural breast tissue will affect the overall size of your breasts after augmentation. However, your size goals in comparison to your current size can help guide the surgeon to the appropriate implant for you.
  • Active lifestyle: A large bust can interfere with physical mobility and speed. If you lead a very active lifestyle, discuss this with your surgeon.
  • Breastfeeding: Discuss with your surgeon if you have a desire to breastfeed in the future, as this will influence your breast augmentation options.
  • Future pregnancy: If you intend on having children later, your breasts will likely change during pregnancy. Your surgeon can tell you how this may affect your figure.
  • Medical concerns: If you have medical concerns, particularly if you have a high risk of breast cancer or other related issues, discuss this with your surgeon.
