Is Size C the New Size D?

Recently, I’ve read several articles that report a downsizing trend among celebrities: They’re downsizing their breast implants. Many of my patients who are considering breast augmentation in Naples have seen similar articles, and they want my advice on whether they should choose a smaller size as well.

Breast Augmentation after Pregnancy

Many women considering breast augmentation in Naples who have recently had children tell me that they loved the look of their breasts while they were pregnant, but after childbirth, their breasts lost volume and now appear “deflated.” When a woman experiences a lack of breast volume as well as sagging, I generally recommend a breast augmentation combined with breast lift. This approach allows me to address 2 issues: loss of fullness and poor skin laxity. The breast implants are used … Continue reading
