What Do Breast Implants Feel Like?

Experienced plastic surgeons guide their patients through the various breast implant features, helping them choose the breast implants that will lead to the most natural-feeling results for their specific body and skin qualities. Dr. David Bogue is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has been providing breast surgery for well over a decade. His medical education and training started even farther back. He puts all of his experience to work as he helps you decide whether breast augmentation will provide the results you expect.

In general, yes, Dr. Bogue’s breast augmentation patients report that their breasts still feel natural to the touch after breast implants have been placed. Oftentimes, a person considering breast augmentation expresses concern that, not only will the end result feel unnatural to her, but also to her intimate partners or spouse. Rest assured that Dr. Bogue understands this hesitancy and works with each patient to ensure results that look and feel amazing.

Here are several factors that may influence what your breasts feel like after the procedure:

  • Type of implant (saline, silicone, gummy bear)
  • Placement of the implants in front of or behind the chest muscle
  • The amount, current softness, density, and feel of your natural breast tissue
  • The texture of the implants (smooth or soft)
  • How large the implants are in relation to your current breast size

Silicone and gummy bear breast implants contain gel that closely mimics the look and feel of natural fat. Oftentimes, we have found it is these implants that provide the best feel when all is said and done. Placing the implants below the chest muscle, and choosing a smooth surface may also lend to a natural feel, as will making sure you don’t go so big that the implant stretches the skin, leaving less padding for the implant.

Having said all of that, individual results do vary and Dr. Bogue always works with the goal of look and feel in mind. Every woman is unique, with a unique set of breast characteristics when she seeks out breast augmentation. Therefore, it’s important to get the guidance and recommendations of an experienced breast surgeon like Dr. Bogue. He will discuss all of your options with you, ultimately helping you weigh the different features of breast implants and empowering you to choose from the options.
