Beautiful woman's face

Most people have seen women with an obvious “boob job.” Breasts that seem too large, too prominent or too firm can look unnatural. Breast augmentation comes in many different forms – there are different types of implants, techniques and methods that determine the final results. Many women have undergone breast augmentation, yet you would never guess their breasts are not natural, even when they are wearing a bikini or naked. Here are some of the key factors for achieving breast enlargement with breast implants with natural-appearing results.

Type of Breast Implant

The two most popular breast implant types are silicone and saline. Both can increase the size of the breasts and can be inserted using different surgical methods. However, there is a difference in the feel, look and possible risks. Saline implants are considered low risk – if they leak, the body easily absorbs the saline, but the implant tends to feel firmer than natural breast tissue. Silicone gel implants feel more like natural breast tissue but can cause issues if they rupture. A structured saline implant like Ideal Implants offers the best of both, using saline with silicone for safety and a more natural feel than saline alone.

Size and Shape

If you are concerned that your new breasts will look “fake,” choosing the proper size and shape for your body frame is essential. Dr. Maia utilizes digital simulation and breast implants that you can “try on” to help find the right option that will match your body and the desired appearance of your new breasts.

Surgical Techniques and Methods

Where and how the breast implant is placed can impact whether the results look natural or not. Dr. Maia is known for her desire to create natural-appearing results when performing plastic surgery. Her years of experience and many happy breast augmentation patients attest to her skills in this popular procedure. You can view the before and after photos in our gallery to see how Dr. Maia’s surgical methods create breast augmentations that look balanced and natural.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
