What Are Natrelle Breast Implants and How Do They Work?

Natrelle breast implants are an implant type made by Allergan, which is well-known for its quality medical products.

These implants come in different shapes and sizes to fit different body types and preferences. There are round implants, which give a fuller look, and teardrop-shaped implants, which provide a more natural, sloping appearance.

These implants work in a pretty straightforward way. In breast augmentation surgery, the surgeon makes an incision, creates a pocket under your breast tissue or chest muscle, and inserts the implant. Once it’s in place, the incision is closed, and voilà! You’ve got yourself a new and improved bust.

Types of Natrelle Breast Implants: Which One Is Right for You?

Now, there are two main types of Natrelle implants: saline and silicone

Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water, while silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel. Both types are designed to mimic the look and feel of natural breast tissue, although women often say that silicone implants feel more like the real deal.

The Benefits of Natrelle Breast Implants

These implants come with many advantages that make them popular among those looking to enhance their bust. 

First, Natrelle implants are made by Allergan, a reputable company with a long history in the medical field. That means you can trust the quality and safety of these implants!

One of the cool things about Natrelle implants is the variety they offer. With different shapes, sizes, and types (saline or silicone), you can find an implant that suits your body and gives you the look you’re dreaming of. So whether you want a more natural appearance or a fuller, rounder look, there’s a Natrelle implant for you!

Now, let’s talk about the feel. Many women say silicone Natrelle implants feel more like natural breast tissue than other implant types. So, if you’re after a natural look and feel, Natrelle silicone implants are the way to go!

Another benefit of Natrelle implants is the warranty program. Allergan offers a comprehensive warranty that covers things like rupture and complications. It’s nice to have that extra peace of mind, right?

What Are the Advantages of Natrelle Implants Over Other Breast Implant Brands?

So you’re wondering about the advantages of Natrelle implants over other breast implant brands? Great question! A few factors make Natrelle implants stand out from the competition:

  1. Variety: Natrelle offers a wide range of implant options with different shapes, sizes, and textures. It allows you to find the perfect implant that matches your body type and desired outcome. Not all brands offer such a diverse selection!
  2. Natural feel: Natrelle silicone implants are known for their natural feel, often compared to real breast tissue. This can be a big plus for those who want their implants to feel as close to the real thing as possible!
  • Cohesive gel: Natrelle’s highly cohesive silicone gel is designed to hold its shape better and reduce the risk of rippling or wrinkling. This feature makes the implants look and feel more natural than other options on the market!

How Do Natrelle Implants Achieve Natural-Looking Results?

The secret to the Natrelle implants’ natural appearance lies in a combination of factors working together to create a more realistic look and feel!

First, the material used in Natrelle implants, especially the silicone ones, plays a big role. The silicone gel is soft and cohesive, allowing it to mimic the feel of natural breast tissue. This gel is also designed to hold its shape better and reduce the risk of rippling or wrinkling, contributing to a more natural look.

Another aspect is the variety of shapes and sizes that Natrelle offers. You can choose from round or teardrop-shaped implants, depending on your desired outcome. Teardrop-shaped implants, also known as anatomical or contoured implants, have a more natural, sloping appearance that can help create a more realistic bust line.

Lastly, your plastic surgeon’s skill is crucial in achieving natural-looking results. An experienced surgeon with a knack for patient-tailored aesthetics will consider factors such as your body type, existing breast tissue, and personal preferences when selecting and placing the implant. By tailoring the procedure to your specific needs, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Phillip Chang can help ensure a more natural outcome.

Natrelle Implant Placement Techniques and Recovery Time

Plastic surgeons use two primary techniques for Natrelle breast implant placement: submuscular and subglandular.

Submuscular Placement

In this technique, the implant is placed under the chest muscle (i.e., pectoralis major) to provide a more natural appearance, especially for women with less natural breast tissue. Submuscular placement also reduces the risk of visible rippling and implant edges. However, the recovery time might be more extensive since muscle tissue is involved.

Subglandular Placement

The implant is placed above the chest muscle but below the breast tissue (i.e., gland). This technique involves a slightly shorter recovery time because it doesn’t involve manipulating the chest muscle. Subglandular placement is preferable for women with enough natural breast tissue to cover the implant.

The recovery time varies depending on the patient and the technique. You should expect some soreness, swelling, and bruising for the first few days to a week after surgery. You’ll wear a surgical bra or compression garment to help with healing and minimize swelling.

Most women return to work and light activities within 1 to 2 weeks, although it’s important to avoid heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for at least 4 to 6 weeks. Follow Dr. Chang’s instructions for post-op care and attend all follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing.

Remember that it can take several months for the swelling to completely subside and for your implants to settle into their final position. So, be patient and give your body time to heal and adjust to the new implants.

Preparing for Your Natrelle Breast Implant Surgery

First things first, you’ll want to have a thorough consultation with your plastic surgeon. This is the perfect time to discuss your goals, ask questions, and make sure you understand the procedure and potential risks. Your surgeon will help you choose the right implant type, size, and placement technique based on your needs and preferences!

Before the surgery, it’s essential to arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure and stay with you for the first 24 hours. This person will help you with basic tasks and ensure you’re comfortable during the initial recovery phase.

It’s also a good idea to get your home ready for your recovery. Stock up on essentials like easy-to-prepare meals, medications, and any supplies recommended by your surgeon. You might also want to set up a comfortable, easily accessible spot to rest and sleep during your recovery.

Your surgeon may ask you to stop taking certain medications or supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding during surgery. Make sure to follow their instructions and inform them about all the medications you’re taking.

Don’t forget to quit smoking, if you do, at least a few weeks before surgery. Smoking can negatively affect your healing process and increase the risk of complications.

Lastly, follow any pre-operative instructions your surgeon provides, such as washing with a specific antibacterial soap or fasting for a certain period before surgery. These steps will help reduce the risk of infection and ensure you’re well-prepared for your Natrelle breast implant surgery!

How To Choose the Right Size and Shape of Natrelle Implants

Picking the right size and shape of Natrelle implants is a super important part of getting the results you want from your breast augmentation.

First, it’s crucial to have a clear idea of your goals. Think about the look and feel you want to achieve and whether you’re aiming for a subtle enhancement or a more dramatic change. Be realistic about what’s possible based on your body type and existing breast tissue.

When choosing the size, remember that bigger isn’t always better. Instead, focus on finding a size that complements your body proportions and gives you a balanced, natural appearance. Dr. Chang will help you determine the right size by considering your chest width, height, and existing breast tissue.

One helpful way to visualize the results is by trying on implant sizers during your consultation. You can wear these sizers in a bra to get a sense of how different sizes and shapes will look on your body.

Dr. Chang uses the Vectra 3D Imaging System to simulate the results of the surgery with various implant sizes and shapes. This approach will give you a better idea of how the implants will look on you and help you make a more informed decision.

Ultimately, the most important thing is to communicate openly with your surgeon. Share your goals and concerns, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Your surgeon’s expertise and experience will be invaluable in helping you choose the right size and shape of Natrelle implants for your breast augmentation!
