Natural Small Breast Implants Are Back In Style

Over the years, beauty trends, like fashion, have continued to change, evolve, and then resurface once again. Back in the 1920’s, small breasts and a boyish figure were the ideal beauty standard, and women even wore special bras that flattened their larger breasts. Then, by the 1950s, came the blonde busty bombshell look, and women began desiring larger breast sizes modeled after celebrities like Jayne Mansfield. This trend carried over through the next few decades, with women desiring to emulate the likes of Loni Anderson and Pamela Anderson.

There are still women who may feel pressured to conform to society’s ideal of beauty, and there are an increasing number of women who are challenging these expectations. The trend today is more about promoting body positivity, and self-acceptance and encouraging women to embrace their unique qualities instead of trying to meet unrealistic ideals.

Today’s women feel more comfortable with natural-looking aesthetics, and they are opting for small breast implant sizes when enhancing their appearance.

Decisions, Decisions

Once a woman decides to have breast implants, she has a few more decisions to make. Which type of implant, size, shape, and profile will provide her with the look she desires?

The best way to make all these decisions is by working with a knowledgeable, board-certified cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Angelina Postoev. Every one of these decisions will impact the way your breasts look and feel when the surgery is complete, so having an expert walk you through each step will be time well spent. When you are choosing your implants, your age does not matter but more your personal preferences and the results you are looking for. Some of the choices you will need to make are:

Implant Types: Saline Or Silicone (SOS)

Every implant has an outer layer that is made from silicone, but it can be filled with silicone gel or a saline solution. Many women prefer silicone implants because they are softer, more flexible, and feel more like natural breast tissue. The newer silicone implants are designed to be very cohesive, so they are much more likely to stick together than leak, but some women prefer saline-filled implants because if they were to leak, their bodies could safely absorb the saline.

Size: Large, Medium, or Small Breast Implants?

There are numerous ranges of sizes available for breast implants that run from extra small to extra large. Choosing the size that is right for your body is important, especially if you are going for a natural look. Breast implants are classified by size ranges, which include:

Size Volume
Small breast implants 150 to 200 cc
Medium breast implants 300 to 350 cc
Large breast implants 400 cc and up
Extra-large breast implants up to 800 cc

Implants filled with saline come pre-filled in a variety of sizes, and saline implants can be filled with customized volumes, so it is easy to find a size that works for you.

Implant Shapes

Women can choose from a few different implant shapes, which will allow them to achieve the results they are looking for. The two primary shapes available for implants include:

Implants that are spherical in shape provide fullness in both the upper and lower portions of the breast. These implants usually provide a generous amount of cleavage.
These implants have a tapered shape and look more like the shape of a natural breast. They have more volume concentrated toward the bottom of the implant and are often used by women who desire medium or small breast implants after a mastectomy.


Every breast implant has a profile classification that establishes how much the implant protrudes from the chest, in addition to having a specific volume of silicone within it. The final size and shape of the breasts are influenced by the volume of silicone or saline used to fill the implants and the profile chosen.

  • Low profile implants have a flatter appearance, offer subtle projection, and tend to be wider at the base. Most women prefer moderate-to-large profile implants because the low-profile options are often described as looking like pancakes. This being said, they do make good options for some women with broader chests who desire a very natural-looking enhancement.
  • Moderate profile implants usually provide the most natural-looking enhancement regardless of the body type. They offer a bit more projection than the low-profile ones, but they don’t create a super dramatic projection like a high-profile implant would.
  • Moderate-plus profile implants strike a nice balance between the moderate and high-profile choices and work well for women with a medium-sized chest frame.
  • High profile implants have a more narrowed base and a more rounded appearance. They project further out from the chest and typically create a more dramatic enhancement. For some individuals, this profile will produce results that do not look natural; however, it may be a good choice for a woman with a narrow chest who desires a noticeable increase in breast size.
  • Ultra-high profile implants have the narrowest base width and cause the breasts to protrude the most dramatically. This style of implant rarely looks natural, but it depends on the circumstances.

Breast implant profile

It is important to feel completely comfortable with the cosmetic surgeon you have chosen for your breast implants so you can engage in open and honest communication. Your surgeon will listen to your desires and advise you when choosing the implant size and profile to ensure the combination will complement your body proportions and give you the look you are wanting.
