Many women who want bigger, fuller breasts also want more cleavage. They dream of larger breasts that naturally produce a “push up bra” effect. Although it may seem that larger breasts and cleavage go hand in hand, it is actually more complicated than that. Achieving the amount of cleavage you want with breast augmentation requires precise planning and the skill of a qualified plastic surgeon.
Here, Greenwich plastic surgeon Dr. Sandra Margoles discusses other factors that affect cleavage after breast augmentation.
Factors that Affect Cleavage After Breast Augmentation
Every woman has her own idea of how much cleavage looks the most attractive. Your plastic surgeon will keep your personal preferences in mind when creating just the right amount of cleavage for you. During your initial consultation, your breast augmentation surgeon will also consider other factors, including:
- The distance between your breasts
- Skin tightness and laxity
- The measurements and proportions of your torso and chest
These factors will affect the ideal location of your breast implant pockets. The type of breast implant you choose, as well as the width and profile of the implant are also important to consider. For instance, round implants have more projection in the upper pole of the breast, thus creating more cleavage.
Ultimately, if you feel that your breast cleavage is far too wide, your surgeon will create a breast augmentation plan that will result in narrower cleavage. If you feel that your cleavage is naturally too narrow, the surgeon will use a different strategy to create more separation between the breasts.
Learn More About Breast Augmentation
Successful breast augmentation requires clear communication between the patient and the plastic surgeon. It’s essential that you be completely transparent about your aesthetic concerns and goals when meeting with your surgeon. If improving cleavage is important to you, be sure to say so during your initial consultation so your surgeon can design a treatment plan that achieves the best results.
