The Latest Breast Implant Trend

breast-implantsWith new fashions trends society is always changing to keep up with the latest and greatest! For plastic surgery, this can be true as well. With all the new hype over butt, boobs, and tummies. Things are constantly changing on sizes, shapes, and what the patient most desires. Breast implants over the past twenty years have had an impact with the newest trends as well, as far as sizes!

Dr. Shienbaum’s patients from some years ago were known for fitting in with culture of the time as “Go BIG or go home”. It was very popular in the 80’s to have large prized breast, and some women still desire that look, but as time has changed and things have evolved over the years, new trends are taking effect. Many patients are now coming back for a more “natural” appearance. A patient of Dr. Shienbaum shares, “When I first got my implants, I wanted to conform with the latest trends, but now with age I just want to be natural and feel myself again.” Many women are noted downsizing or completely removing their implants with plastic surgeons in the 20th century. Dr. Shienbaum’s patient is part of the growing trend of women opting for a breast explant surgery. In recent magazines, they noted the red carpets have been lacking some cleavage over the past couple of years.

More plastic surgeons reported performing Breast Explant or exchanges than ever. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery started tracking the procedures just last year recording more than 38,000 procedures. Most patients replace their current implants with smaller while some prefer to have them taken out altogether. The majority of these patients have had their implants for decades.

If your deciding on any type of surgery Dr. Shienbaum highly recommends you thoroughly think about your decision to make sure it is right one for you and your body no matter the trend currently. Always discuss with your plastic surgeon any questions or concerns you may have about any and all procedures you are inquiring.
