Choosing the right breast implant size for your body and aesthetic goals is an important decision that should be made in conjunction with your plastic surgeon. Although breast implant size is a personal choice, many factors, such as your body shape, the desired outcome, and doctor’s recommendations, can affect the final decision. On average, breast implant sizes can vary from 100 cubic centimeters (cc) to 800 cubic centimeters (cc). It usually takes about 200cc to increase bra size by 1 cup.
If you are considering breast augmentation and are unsure what breast implant size may be right for you, here are some tips to help you decide.
- Research: Before choosing a breast implant size, spend some time researching different breast implants. Look at before and after photos of patients with similar body types to your own to better understand your desired outcome. Analyzing before and after photos of other breast augmentations can help give you an idea of what different-sized implants might look like on your body.
- Try on Sizers: When meeting with your surgeon, ask your doctor if they have breast implant sizers that you can place inside a special bra to see how different-sized implants will look and feel on your body. This can help provide you with a better understanding of the potential outcome of your breast augmentation.
- Consider Your Lifestyle: Before choosing a breast implant size, take some time to consider your lifestyle and the activities you enjoy. Larger implants may impact your ability to comfortably engage in certain hobbies and physical activities. If you live an active lifestyle, consider a smaller implant.
- Consider Your Desired Breast Shape: Breast implants come in round and teardrop shapes. The shape of the implant can significantly change the profile of your breasts and the final appearance of your breast augmentation. Make sure to discuss with your surgeon your desired outcome so you can choose the right shape for the aesthetic you are looking for.
Choosing the right implant size for you and your desired aesthetic can be overwhelming. The best first step for any breast augmentation is to consult your plastic surgeon so they can help you make your decision. They have performed augmentations on many women and can help you visualize the best outcome.
