No breast implant is one-size-fits-all. Once you decide upon the type of breast implant you want (e.g. silicone or saline), you will need to select a breast implant size that meets your personal goals for breast augmentation. Dr. Lefkovits will measure your chest width, the distance between your breasts, the base width of your breasts, and other factors to help determine the implant size that would produce the best results.
Be sure to openly discuss your breast augmentation goals with Dr. Lefkovits. Feel free to bring in pictures of breast sizes that you like and find appealing. Be as specific as possible when explaining what you like about these pictures. Some women are looking to go as big as possible, while others want their breast implants to look natural and proportionate with the rest of their body. Once Dr. Lefkovits fully understands what you want out of breast augmentation surgery, he can help you find a size that will satisfy you.
Remember: breast implant sizes are not equivalent to bra sizes. Instead, breast implants are measured by volume in cubic centimeters (cc’s). When you are evaluating different sizes, Dr. Lefkovits will also discuss breast implant profiles and shapes with you, since these can affect the appearance of your size.
