Ever wondered what the process looks like for picking a patient’s breast implant size before breast augmentation?
Wonder no more: We’ve got the lowdown on how we pick different implant sizes, including why patients shouldn’t walk into their breast augmentation consultation with a specific cup size in mind.
Different Types of Breast Implant Sizes
Rather than using cup sizes to talk about breast implant sizes, plastic surgeons measure implants a little differently. While there are a wide variety of breast implant sizes to choose from, the most common implant sizes range from 200cc to 850cc.
Why You Shouldn’t Be Stuck on Cup Size
A lot of patients make the mistake of coming into their breast augmentation consultation with a specific cup size in mind. However, it’s simply not realistic to be stuck on a specific cup size, as it may not be appropriate for your body’s shape.
Instead, your plastic surgeon should use your desired cup size to inform the conversation around aesthetic goals and results. For example, if you want to increase your bust a couple of cup sizes, your plastic surgeon can use augmented reality digital imagery to show you how your body will look with various cup sizes. Together, you and your plastic surgeon will decide on the right cup size for your body.
More often than not, the right cup size ends up being totally different to what the patient initially wanted!
How Do We Pick Your Implant Size?
Picking the right implant size involves assessing the proportions of your body, as well as using computer imagery to help you visually understand how different implant sizes may look on your body. The ultimate goal is to pick an implant size that produces your ideal results without sacrificing the implant’s integrity or your physical health.
This was one of the best medical experiences I have ever had from beginning to end. I am a mother of two young kids and I used to have nice, perky breasts (full B) before kids. After pregnancies and nursing, my breasts turned into floppy pancakes that were crooked. I just wanted my natural, perky breasts back and Dr. Song gave me just that. He is very professional, patient, and knowledgeable, which made my breast augmentation surgery very enjoyable. I was skeptical at first and had a lot of questions about the surgery, recovery, risks, etc. and Dr. Song put my mind at ease with all of it. I had a lot of questions and he was able to answer every one of them with complete honesty and transparency. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know who is looking for any type of plastic surgery and having a positive experience. ”
