Breast Implant Sizes
Breast Implant Sizes
The main idea behind having breast augmentation is to increase the size of your breasts, isn’t it? Well, for this reason alone, you should also consider the breast implant sizes you would want to have for the surgery. There are a lot of factors to consider before choosing the breast implant sizes for your body and for this we would like to help you decide the best option you can choose.
Things to Consider in Choosing the Breast Implant Sizes:
- Taking pictures
One of the things you can do is to take pictures of your breasts – both from front view and side view. Having a photo in hand will allow you to see for yourself what your breasts really look like because just by looking at yourself in the mirror, you won’t really see the real breasts you have. This may be caused by mirror concavity or sometimes our own eyes tell us something else while we look at ourselves in the mirror.
The pictures you have taken will also be useful when you go and consult with your cosmetic surgeon because he will be able to see what he would work on and suggest some breast implant sizes that will work for you.
- Work with your cosmetic surgeon
This is the most important factor to consider when choosing the breast implant sizes for your surgery, working closely with your cosmetic surgeon. Your surgeon can walk you through the breast augmentation procedure as well as provide you with excellent information regarding the best breast implant sizes that will work for your body.
You should talk to your surgeon about the look you would want to get. You can show him some photos of models that have great looking breasts and ask him if it can be done on your body frame. Also, don’t forget to ask for some before and after photos of some of the breast augmentation surgeries he has done in the past. By looking through his extensive patient photos, this will give you an idea whether the surgeon is indeed a good doctor or not.
- Experimenting with rice
Breast implant sizes are configured with cubic centimeters or cc in short - this is the main measurement for them. One cubic centimeter is equal to one milliliter and in order to determine the perfect breast implant size you want, try experimenting with the so called Rice Test.
In order to determine the correct cc for your breast implant sizes, get a knee-high stocking and a few cupfuls of uncooked rice. Remember that 1 ounce is equal to 30cc so if you wanted to try what a 300cc breast implant size would look on you, measure 10 ounces of uncooked rice, place them in the stocking and tie them off at the end.
Since the uncooked rice in the stocking can move about and follow the shape you put them into, insert them in your bra and see how a 300cc breast implant would look on you in form fitting clothes. If you feel that they’re too small, add a few ounces more and calculate the cc corresponding equivalent. If you have found the measurement that you’re comfortable with, tell your cosmetic surgeon about it.
- The look you’re after
Are you looking for a more natural look or the faker look? How about the cleavage, how many spaces would you like to have in between your breasts? These questions should also be brought into account when you’re choosing your breast implant sizes.
Always remember that the bigger the breast implant sizes are and the smaller your breasts are, the faker your new breasts will look like. However, this is not always the case for most women because they wanted to have the fuller breasts even if it may look like fake. You should talk to your surgeon about the cleavage you’re after too because this will allow him to help you decide on the breast implant sizes that will achieve this for you.
Always remember that the final decision of your breast implant sizes should come from you, not from your spouse, your friend, or family members. Sometimes it is easier to decide to have breast augmentation but choosing the breast implant sizes might take longer. Carefully consider all your options before choosing the final size of your breast implants and bear in mind that you should be realistic about the outcome of the surgery.
