What Kind of Cleavage Can I Expect After a Breast Augmentation?

By: Dr. Rolando Morales


 Many women are excited to see their breast augmentation results after undergoing cosmetic surgery. However, some patients want to know: What kind of cleavage can I expect after breast augmentation? The answer is that patients can expect better-looking cleavage when working with a skilled breast augmentation surgeon in Houston, TX. 

If you're interested in implants, cleavage enhancement, or how to increase breast size through state-of-the-art fat grafting techniques, call Morales Plastic Surgery to meet with Dr. Rolando Morales. We can discuss your options during an in-depth consultation. 

How long do breast implants last? 

First, it's important to learn what to expect from breast augmentation surgery. So, how long do breast implants last? Unfortunately, there's no one answer to this question. This is because breast implants are not considered lifetime devices. On average, implants last about 20 years before they need to be replaced. Factors such as age, weight changes, and pregnancy also affect this timeline. Regular check-ups and screenings are crucial for detecting potential issues and ensuring their longevity. 

What is cleavage? 

Many people mistake cleavage for breast size or cup size. Actually, cleavage refers to the space in between your breasts. Breasts that are farther apart are considered to have less cleavage, while breasts that are closer together have more. Many women love having extra cleavage because it helps make their breasts appear fuller and more rounded. Clothes can fit more flatteringly as well. 

Cleavage is determined by the natural width of your chest bone, which is determined by your genes. If you have a small amount of cleavage, breast implants can help. But there may be limitations to how much cleavage you can achieve. You can learn what to expect from breast augmentation surgery by meeting with Dr. Morales for an assessment. 

How to increase breast size and cleavage with surgery 

Our breast augmentation surgeon in Houston, TX offers implant surgery in addition to fat grafting for cleavage enhancement. This technique involves adding fat to the breast to give the illusion of a fuller cleavage. The added benefit of fat grafting is that we use liposuction to remove unwanted fat from other areas of the body. 

Though breast augmentation results vary by patient, you can expect better cleavage after the procedure. You'll want to take time to rest and recover from surgery before fully enjoying your new look. Dr. Morales will explain the recovery process and provide any post-operative care instructions. 

How to achieve fuller cleavage after breast implants 

Want to know how to achieve fuller cleavage after breast implants? You can use a few simple tricks to make your cleavage look bigger and more noticeable. One of the easiest ways is to wear a little extra padding or a push-up bra. Push-up bras are made to push the breasts together and make it look like there's more volume in the center of your chest. 

If your cleavage is still too subtle, you may want to try playing up your décolletage. Professional makeup artists recommend using cosmetics to create contours and shadows in the area to make cleavage look more defined. Makeup can draw attention upward and toward the center of your chest.
