Can Breast Implants Help with My Side Boob?

Woman in a green bathing suitThanks to breast augmentation with silicone or saline implants, Dr. Mark A. Deuber has helped countless patients achieve fuller breasts and more alluring curves. The results are stellar, and patients typically feel more confidence thanks to their implants.

In recent times, a number of patients have asked if breast implants can enhance their side boob. As it turns out, cleavage isn’t the only important aspect of breast augmentation surgery these days. Our Dallas, TX plastic surgery center explores this trend.

Is Side Boob the New Cleavage?

In recent years, celebrities and social media influencers have changed the way we think about our looks. That helps explain why side boob has become so important. Certain tops, dresses, and bathing suits reveal more of the outline/contour of the sides of the breasts. For many women, side boob has become the new cleavage.

As with breast size, not everyone is born with good side boob. In such cases, breast augmentation surgery can help.

Factors That Affect the Appearance of Side Boob

When it comes to enhancing the side boob during breast augmentation, there are a few factors that plastic surgeons have to take into account:

  • The Patient’s Initial Breast Size – The ideal look for a patient is determined by the existing tissue a surgeon has to work with. Sometimes the appearance and nature of the patient’s breasts mean enhancing the side boob won’t yield ideal results.
  • The Position of the Nipple – Nipple position is important when it comes to side boob. Sometimes the position of a woman’s nipples and natural curvature of the breasts means that enhancing side boob won’t lead to the most natural-looking outcomes.
  • The Skin at the Sides of the Breasts – Plastic surgeons always need to consider how implants affect the appearance of the skin. If the skin at the side of the breasts is thin, enhancing the side boob could lead to stretched skin and poor appearance.

Picking the Right Breast Implants

When it comes to tailoring a surgery to a patient, plastic surgeons have many options available. We have different types of breast implants to choose from. Apart from picking the implant composition and size, we can also consider the implant profile. Profile refers to the amount of outward projection an implant has. Traditionally, implant profile is a way to emphasize cleavage, thought we can also consider implant profile in conjunction with other factors to help enhance the side boob.

Deciding on Breast Implant Placement

Surgical technique can make a major difference on the appearance of the breasts, including the side boob. Creating a symmetrical implant pocket and having precise control over implant placement can help with side boob enhancement and the overall results.
