How to Choose the Right Breast Implant Size


The most considered question for decision on having breast augmentation is “what size is right for me?” Breast aesthetics are highly subjective to individual approach, expectation, and opinion. When opting for breast augmentation surgery it is important to consider not only the implant size but other aspects as well, that includes: shape, size, and texture.

Your breast implant choice of the right size will have a lot to do with your original sculpture. You cannot go beyond your body structure for fitting in the size. As far as shape and texture is concerned, you will have round and anatomical classification of implants. The round implant has a round shape with the same diameter and appears different because of its volume and projection.

The teardrop plant is the second choice that has almost the same shape of breast. The implant shape varies significantly in both height and width, and both appear differently. The two factors that play a major role in the appearance of the breasts implants are the:

Breast Implant Fill

The two major implants available throughout the world include Saline and Silicone implants. The Silicone implants are filled with cohesive silicone and saline implant is filled with Saline water. But being cohesive is very important; it prevents implants from leaking during ruptures.

Surface Texture

Two types are available in general that include; textured and smooth surface. Round implants do not stay in place while textured do and they also Velcro themselves to the surrounding tissues as well.

Breast implant size is measured in cubic centimeters, referred to as cc’s-the larger the implant the greater will be projection from the chest and volume of cc’s. Once you are with your consulting surgeon, you will be shown a breast implant volume size chart. You will also be asked to try various sizes for personal visualization to see how you will look with different sizes.

When you’re making your choice in sizes, remember that the larger breast size might be your choice but it usually gives a fake look. The larger implants are not comfortable and will even cause problem for the physically active women’s. The risk also involves bottoming out of the implant which in simple language refers to unfavorable downward movement of the breasts.
