The most common question breast augmentation doctors are asked is "What size implants are right for me" Obviously, the answer is different for every patient, but if you are seriously looking into having a breast enhancement procedure, you will definitely want way to make sure you choose the right one for your body and lifestyle. There are several ways to make your breast augmentation dimensions choice. Start by taking a good look at your current figure and measurements heel cups. Consider your height and weight, as well as your bone and muscle structure. Determine, what you hope to accomplish with your surgery. Are you trying to even out your figure by making it more hourglass-shaped rather than pear-shaped Do you want your breasts to sit up higher on your chest Or is this a reconstruction procedure to restore your silhouette after a mastectomy The answers to these questions will probably help you and your doctor pick the right implant sizing. Next learn how breast implant sizes are created. Implants consist of a saline- or silicone-filled sack covered in a silicone shell. They come in different textures and lots of different dimensions. It is based on how many cc's or cubic centimeters of saline or silicone the implants hold. To help you make a good mental comparison, there are about 237 cc in one US standard cooking cup. On average, it takes about 189cc to increase your breast dimensions by one whole bra size cup. The smallest size is 125 cc. This may be a great fit for those with very small chests or those recreating their breasts after breast cancer. It may also be right for those who are in-between bra sizes and just want a fuller look. The largest one available is 1200cc. That is roughly five cooking cups full! Most people choose a dimension somewhere in the middle of the two extremes. Once you have a rough idea of the breast implant size you want, you can try on implant sizes at your surgeon's office with the aid of a sports bra or a surgical bra. By trying on several ones and modeling for yourself in a mirror, you will get an idea of which best complements your body. You will also get an idea of how heavy your new implants will be and how it will feel to have more weight in your chest area. In general, the most common complaint after breast surgery is, "I wish I went with a bigger size". This may be due partly to the fact that there is a certain amount of swelling that takes place after the augmentation surgery that lasts for several months. Many women get used to this larger, swollen size and are then disappointed when the swelling naturally subsides leaving them with what they initially chose. Being aware of this fact may help you avoid such disappointment insoles. Plus with certain types of implants, your surgeon can go back in through the initial incision and add cc's to your implants later if desired. Be cautious of going bigger than your surgeon recommends as the discomfort will be much greater and it will require additional surgery to decrease it. Moreover, with really large dimensions you may have to wear a bra all the time, even when you sleep to prevent sagging. Sleeping on your stomach will likely be very uncomfortable as well with larger implant sizes. There are several factors that will help you determine your ideal implant size, and your surgeon can give you helpful suggestions. In the end, it is really a matter of your preference and expectations!
