July 31, 2012 – Many women who are thinking about having breast augmentation wonder if it will be obvious that they’ve had cosmetic surgery. But are breast implant
really that easy to spot?

The answer is no, as long as the size of the implants is in balance with the rest of your body, according to a recent article published by the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS). And with over 316,000 breast augmentations performed in the U.S. last year (2011) with an average cost of $3,308 for saline implants and $3,694 for silicone implants, women should definitely try to get the best fit and most satisfaction possible from the procedure.

The ASAPS states that more American women are choosing smaller breast implants and that makes it more difficult for others to “spot” them. Overly large breasts that look out of proportion to the rest of a woman’s body is often a sign that they are implants.

Besides overly large breasts, the article says other signs that may give away the fact that a woman has breast implants include breasts that are positioned high on the chest, breasts that are positioned too close together and of course visible scars.

The ASAPS recommends that besides finding a qualified, board certified cosmetic surgeon to perform your breast augmentation, use imaging software to see some before and after pictures of yourself. This will give you a good idea if the breast implant size you’re considering looks too large for your body frame. Choosing the right size for overall balance and having an experienced cosmetic surgeon will help insure that your breast implants look natural.
