Today, breast implants are as popular as ever but a new trend many plastic surgeons are seeing is “less is more.” Although women still desire larger, sexier breasts, surgeons are observing a significant change in the size of breast implants their patients request for breast augmentation surgery.

For many, less is more
Currently in many parts of the country, many women simply want to increase their bust by approximately one cup size. Instead of a D or DD, a number of women are now requesting a B-cup or small C-cup size implants. Celebrities are also requesting more modest results when they undergo breast augmentation surgery, which might be influencing this trend.
Dr. Scot Glasberg, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, commented on this trend in a recent interview with ABC News, saying that the celebrities he sees in his practice are opting to trade in their larger implants for smaller ones.
Though natural now seems to be the new look, there are regional differences when it comes to requested cup size. What’s a modest size in one place may not translate to another. For example, women in Miami might have one idea of what breast size looks attractive while women in the Northeast might have quite another. The current smaller implant trend is currently most prevalent in New York and Beverly Hills but in time may spread to other areas of the country.
Whether small and natural-looking or large and eye-catching, breast augmentation remains one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. According to the most recent data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation was the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in 2013, with 290,000 performed.
