Summary: Overall, the types of breast enhancement available in 2020 likely won’t change too much. But there are some innovative new practices that promise to shake things up more than you might otherwise be expecting. That’s why we’re taking a look at breast enhancement in 2020 and what we might expect moving forward.
What Types of Breast Enhancement Will There be in 2020?
In some ways, breast enhancement procedures haven’t changed too much in the last twenty years. Yes, the techniques and approaches have transformed to give patients better (and safer) results. And true, those results tend to look a little more natural than they did in the past. But the basic concepts behind the procedures have remained steadily the same for years.
So why would we expect the types of breast enhancement in 2020 to change all that much? Well, we wouldn’t really. But it’s an excellent opportunity to take a refresher on the types of breast enhancement that are available–and what happens to be popular at this particular moment.
This will come as a shock to no one, but breast augmentation in 2020 is likely to be quite popular. There are enough implant options and techniques available that just about anyone who wants this procedure (and who can afford financing) can get one. However, it’s worth pointing out that most patients looking for a breast augmentation seek only subtle and modest changes.
And if there’s one thing to pay attention to in terms of breast augmentation in 2020, it’s that particular aesthetic change. Most patients will continue to want natural looking transformations–and that includes for breast augmentation procedures. (It’s also one of the reasons that we expect gummy bear implants to be quite popular throughout the next decade, too).
Breast Explant Surgery
One of the more surprising developments in terms of breast enhancement is something called breast explant surgery. This is a relatively novel procedure–and yet not all at the same time. During a breast explant procedure, breast implants will be removed and the breasts allowed to return to their natural size. In most cases, breasts will return to roughly the size and shape they were before the implant was placed in the first place.
Breast explant procedures have become popular in recent years for a variety of reasons. One of the most pronounced reasons is that many patients start to feel as though they have outgrown their breast implants–that the aesthetics no longer suit them. But there are sometimes health reasons involved, too. We expect breast explant surgery to become ever more popular in 2020.
Breast Lift and Reduction
Breast lift and reduction procedure will also likely be quite common in 2020, just as they were in 2019. In many cases, patients may opt for a breast lift instead of a breast augmentation. In other cases, patients may undergo a breast reduction and lift simultaneously. These procedures will continue to fill the role they have in years past.
But it’s also likely that they’ll continue to fill those roles a little better, too. New technologies and techniques mean that breast lift and reduction procedures have become less invasive (generally speaking) and more natural looking in terms of results.
Finding the Right Breast Enhancement For You
Breast enhancement in 2020 will offer no shortage of options. The trick, then, is going to be finding the right options for you. So keep in mind that there’s no “best” breast enhancement surgery out there–that’s been true throughout 2020 and before. Which means that the types of breast enhancement you see in 2020 could be right for you. But the only way to be sure is to talk to your plastic surgeon about your options.
