When Choosing Breast Implant Size, Forget Your A-B-Cs

Buttock and Breast Augmentation (NYC), Park Plaza Plastic Surgery New York (NY)

When considering the size of your breast implants, forget your As, Bs, Cs and ccs. Instead, focus on the aspects of breast implants that will provide you with the look you desire. As you no doubt already know, the cup sizes of bras are frustratingly imperfect and vary widely based on the bra style and manufacturer. Although cubic centimeters (the volume used to measure breast implant sizes) are precise, they too can be misleading. For example, 400cc breast implants in a woman who has a small frame and thin breast tissue will not appear the same as 400cc breast implants in a full-figured woman with significant breast tissue. In making the difficult decision regarding breast implant size, use visualization options such as before-and-after photos, case studies and breast implant samples. Consider what you like and don’t like; think about the aspects of varying breast implants and individuals that you find attractive or not. Some questions to consider include:

  • What are your personal aesthetic preferences?
  • Do you mind a visible breast implant outline?
  • Do you prefer an obvious rounded shape or a more natural contour?
  • Do you want a subtle or more noticeable change in size?
  • Will your desired size fit your lifestyle?
