The truth is that breast implants come in all different sizes, including high-volume implants for women seeking a dramatic change and smaller breast implants for women interested in only a subtle adjustment. There are a few different reasons why women might consider the latter.

A Natural Enhancement

While some women enjoy an eye-catching, high-profile look, others simply want to enhance their figure in a way that looks natural. Also, some women aren’t comfortable with friends or even family members knowing about their breast augmentation. For example, actress Kate Hudson has been rumored to have had breast implants for some time, but her results are so natural-looking that even speculators can’t say for sure.

“Natural Breast Augmentation”

For those seeking truly natural enlargement without implants, the use of fat transfer can provide a subtle 1 cup increase in size that creates a very gentle upper slope to the breast without the obvious fullness that a breast implant may produce. Patients must have sufficient donor sites and willing to undergo a more extensive procedure that may require preparation with an external expansion device (the BRAVA®).

The Brazilian B

The concept of the “Brazilian B” was popularized by sexy Brazilian figures like Gisele Bundchen who sport a modest breast size. The Brazilian B has now grown in popularity throughout the United States, where more women are finding that smaller breast implant sizes can actually be more flattering to their figure.

Better for an Active Lifestyle

Finally, women with large breasts have long experienced difficulties participating in strenuous physical activities. In fact, many women undergo a breast reduction to improve their quality of life after finding that their large breasts prevent them from taking part in sports and other activities. Active women seeking breast enhancement may feel that smaller implants would provide them with just the right boost to their figure without getting in the way of their lifestyle.
