Super Natural Breast Augmentation
Our patients from Seattle, Bellevue, and other Greater Puget Sound communities fall on a spectrum when it comes to the results they want from their breast augmentations. Some women want more upper pole fullness, voluptuous cleavage, and more of a "centerfold" or swimsuit model look. At the other end of the spectrum are the women who want breasts so natural that no one can tell they've been surgically enhanced. For women who are especially sensitive to realistic results, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Braden Stridde uses a special technique called "super natural" breast augmentation.

The foundation of super natural breast augmentation is the breast implant. Dr. Stridde prefers shaped highly cohesive silicone gel implants from Sientra®, sometimes called "gummy bears." Soft and pliable yet incredibly resilient, these implants offer breast augmentation patients exceptional options for augmented breasts that look and feel like natural breast tissue.
The shape of the implant is a very important factor when planning your super natural breast augmentation. For super natural patients, Dr. Stridde prefers the Sientra shaped implants, which are sometimes called "teardrop" or "anatomical."

These implants have a sloped shape, with more volume at the bottom. This more closely imitates the shape of natural breasts than round implants, which create more upper pole fullness. The Sientra line comes in many different sizes, base shapes, and projections, so Dr. Stridde can truly customize the procedure.
Finally, thanks to Sientra's Silimed® Texture Technology, these implants carry some of the lowest risks of a complication called capsular contracture. Capsular contracture occurs when scar tissue around the implant hardens, squeezing it and making the breasts tight and often uncomfortable. Textured exteriors dramatically reduce the rate of capsular contracture and keep the implant from rotating.

Super natural breast augmentation follows the same surgical steps as traditional breast augmentation. Dr. Stridde performs the surgery while you are under general anesthesia. He typically makes an incision along the inframammary fold, which is the crease where your breast meets your chest wall. He then creates a pocket within the breast tissue and inserts the implant. He repeats this process on the second breast and evaluates them for symmetry before closing your incisions.
Breast augmentation surgery typically lasts between 1 and 2 hours, and you may return home the same day – although it's important to have a friend or family member to lend a hand during the first few days after surgery. Although you may return to work and other daily commitments after about 1 week, it's important to refrain from vigorous exercise and other strenuous activities until Dr. Stridde gives you permission. In the long term, you can enjoy your super natural results for many years – especially by living a healthy lifestyle and closely following your post-op instructions.
