Breast Augmentation

Choosing the right implant size for your breast augmentation in Miami may seem like the toughest decision ever, when you’re about to enhance your figure with breast implants. Congratulations! And, don’t worry. Your plastic surgeon can guide you through the process of choosing and loving your new assets. In the meantime, here’s a handy guide to help you think through the idea of size and dimensions when it comes to breast augmentation.

Miami breast augmentation sizing factors you need to know about

Did you know that the implants which suit you, and “fit” your figure will depend a lot on your chest measurements? Not just your existing breasts, but the size of your ribcage and all the other related anatomy. A body contouring expert like Dr. Phillip Craft considers his patient’s breast characteristics, their tissue, skin, nipple position, chest wall and their desired “look” before giving his recommendation.

Let’s take a closer look at breast implants volumes to understand what sizes are available for you.

You’ll usually see the volumes of implants given as “CC’s” whether they’re saline or silicone gel. Considering round implants, the cohesive silicone gel variety comes pre-filled and will range from roughly 80cc all the way up to 800cc. The width of implant bases also ranges from narrow to the widest at about 17cm, (over 6 ½ inches.) This means that while you may have a specific picture in mind when you hear “300cc” or “500cc”, the implants themselves could be round like balls, or flatter and broader, with the same fill volume. The look of 300cc on a person with a petite chest size will be fuller than the same fill spread over a wider chest.

Try on implants at your consultation

Many plastic surgeons offer patients the opportunity to see and feel real breast implants and place them in a bra for in-office sizing. This will feel somewhat realistic. You’re welcome to bring friends or your partner to help you assess the changes and make your pick.

Let the experts guide you

In this case, not strangers online, but your experienced breast augmentation surgeon. After they’ve listened to your goals, concerns and wishes, they’ll combine this information with your measurements to suggest dimensions you’ll be happy with.

Have you tried the rice test for your Miami breast augmentation?

It’s tricky to make a bag of water spread out properly in a bra, so DIY sizing done at home works best with rice in a thin plastic bag or piece of nylon stocking. This is not an exact science, but it can help you to adapt to the increased fill in your bra at home with roughly the desired size of breasts.

Measure the dry, uncooked rice into the bag. 1cc equals 1ml for the purposes of this test. When you’ve filled the correct amount, squeeze excess air out of the bag and secure by tying it. You can now spread the rice bag to cover the width of your breast and contain it within a soft, snug bra. One for each side gives you roughly the increase you want to see.
