Can I Still Get Breast Implants if I am Flat-Chested?

By: Dr. Dax Demaree


There is a common misconception that if you are flat-chested, you cannot get breast implants. However, this is not true. Almost any woman can get implants regardless of chest size. So, if you are interested in breast augmentation, don't let your lack of natural padding dissuade you – speak with a board-certified general surgeon like Dr. Dax Demaree about your options. You may be surprised at how many implant sizes and shapes are available.

Premier Surgical Arts has helped countless women in Altoona, WI achieve their desired appearance with breast implants. Trust us to help give you the results you want by scheduling a consultation today.

How do breast implants work?

Breast implants are inserted in a surgical pocket under the breast tissue or muscle to create fuller, more voluptuous breasts. These devices are made of saline or medical-grade silicone, which means they are durable and safe for the body.

There are many reasons why women opt for breast implants. Some do it to increase their breast size, while others want to regain their pre-pregnancy figures. Breast implants can also even out asymmetrical breasts or correct a decrease in breast volume after weight loss.

If you are naturally flat-chested, you are not alone – many women with small breasts have benefitted from augmentation surgery at Premier Surgical Arts.

Who is a candidate for breast augmentation?

Not all women are ideal candidates for breast implants. This is why a consultation with Dr. Demaree is important. During this appointment, we ask about your medical history and examine the treatment area. We also discuss your goals for breast augmentation and what to expect when working with our talented team in Altoona, WI.

Generally speaking, women who are in good health and have realistic expectations about their results are excellent candidates for breast implants. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have a serious health condition, may not be strong candidates at this time.

Do breast augmentation results look natural?

Women with flat chests sometimes worry that their results will look fake or artificial. This is because some people tend to get implants that are too large for their frames. As long as you work with a qualified surgeon, like Dr. Demaree, your outcomes should look natural – even if you go up a few sizes. We can choose the right size and shape implant for your needs.

What about recovery from breast augmentation?

Most women report minimal pain and discomfort after breast augmentation. You will experience some swelling and bruising, so Dr. Demaree recommends avoiding strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for at least several weeks. Some breast augmentation results show almost immediately but become more apparent when the swelling goes down.

Are there alternatives to breast implants?

Yes, Premier Surgical Arts does offer an alternative procedure if you are unsure about breast implants. A fat transfer takes excess fat from another area (such as the abdomen or thighs) and injects it into the breasts to create volume. This is a great option for women who want a natural approach to breast augmentation.
