Many women wish they had more dramatic cleavage. However, for some, their breasts sit too far apart to get the look they want with bras alone. Can breast augmentation close the gap?
What Causes the Gap?
Many women think that a lack of cleavage means a lack of breast volume. In truth, the width and shape of your sternum plays a bigger role. Because the muscles attach to the sternum, where your breasts sit is heavily impacted by this bone. Even if you have naturally large breasts, you may not be able to push the breasts together to get the look you want.
How Does Breast Augmentation Impact the Gap?
If you have a prominent gap between your breasts, it might not be the volume that is to blame.
We’d like to offer good news here, but the truth is that augmentation can only make minimal changes to your cleavage. If your lack of cleavage is due to volume, then yes, breast implants have you covered. However, if it is due to your sternum, this cannot be changed.
Can Implants Actually Accentuate the Gap?
In some cases, yes. This will depend on the sternum shape. Sometimes, adding volume can make the gap even more obvious. If this is a major concern for you, bring it up during your consultation.
