How To Determine Which Breast Implants Are Best for You?

Breast Implants

Although for many women the decision to undergo breast augmentation surgery as a method of enhancing their physical appearance is an easy one to make, determining the size, texture, and shape of implant can be a more difficult decision.

Breast implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, texture and profiles which have the potential to create an amazing look that is both natural and attractive. Available breast implant sizes range from 100 to 1000 cubic centimetres (cc.) and the most common implant sizes are approximately 200-400 cc. With so many options to choose from, it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed.

When choosing the sizing of breast implants, there are two factors that should be taken into account when making your decision.

Breast Augmentation

This is the most important factor and is the purpose behind the breast augmentation. Although theoretically, a woman with a small body frame can get disproportionally large breast implants, there are inherent limitations that determine the most suitable size for you. For example, your current breast size must be taken into account because your existing breast tissue needs to be able to cover the implant. If you are a smaller busted woman, significantly larger implants may not be a good fit because of insufficient breast tissue.

A great tool for helping you determine the results you want from the breast augmentation is the implant fitting session. Aside from your initial consultation, this meeting could be the next most important. You will be given the opportunity to study a variety of implant sizes, shapes, and profiles with a special bra to help you visualize how your silhouette will change with implants.

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of this fitting session:

  • Wear a light-coloured shirt with a low neckline. This will let you test out the cleavage and the impact colours can have on how your curves will appear.
  • Try some extreme sizes on. This will help you narrow down your options but determining what you do not want.
  • Bring a close friend. Although the final decision is yours and only yours to make, having a friend that knows you well present at this session can help you find an implant size that suits you and your lifestyle.
  • Ask the experts. Our staff is experienced in helping women find the ideal implant size, so we are here to help!

Make sure you are clear in communicating your aesthetic goals with your plastic surgeon and use visual aids to help. In addition, it is important to keep in mind that one breast size can look very different on two different bodies.

Lifestyle & Breast Implants

Although breast augmentation may not be permanent, one simple surgery can produce long-term results. With many years ahead of you, it is important to keep your lifestyle in consideration when selecting your breast implant size, shape, and profile. Being too conservative can lead to future breast augmentations while implants that are too large can be physically restrictive and cause health issues such as back pain and sagging down the road.

When making your final decision, it is important to remain realistic and keep in mind that bigger is not always better.
