Breast Implant Sizes

2. Breast Implant Size - How do I choose the right size implant?

How Big Will Your Breasts be After Surgery?

It will depend on certain size issues:

  • How big your chest is now
  • How much breast tissue you have naturally
  • What size implant you choose

Methods of Choosing Breast Implant Size

Don't choose your own CC volume. Breast implant volumes are poorly understood by patients, who don't know all of the variables (ribcage size, chest shape, existing breast volume) that will dictate what a given implant size will do for them. The plastic surgeon has years of training and experience to rely upon in deciding on the right size breast implant and fill after you tell and SHOW him or her what you want.

Using ImplantInfo's Breast Augmentation Photo Gallery

Everyone has a different idea of what a C cup is, and there is no standard. Don't say, "Doctor, make me a C cup!" or you might get a B cup, a C cup, or a D cup. DO use photos. Bring pictures to your consultation to bridge the gap. If you bring pictures of women who are near your height, weight, bust circumference, breast shape, etc., those pictures will enable the doctor to say, "Oh, I see what size you want to be." They also enable you to convey to the doctor what you mean when you say, "I want to be a C cup, like this patient."
