Choosing the Right Breast Implant Size
Dermatology, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in New York City (NYC) and Manhattan
Choosing the size of your breast implants is one of the most important decisions you will need to make when preparing for your breast augmentation. Most patients have a pre-conceived size in mind; our plastic surgeon will carefully listen to your cosmetic goals and work with you to visualize the results you are looking for. Implant size is not the same as cup size, and it can be affected by a wide range of other factors.
If you are considering breast augmentation, please call us today at (888) 610-3133 to schedule a consultation with our board-certified New York City breast augmentation surgeon.
Factors That Will Affect Your Breast Size
There are many variables that you will need to consider when choosing your breast implant size, such as:
- Current breast volume
- The shape you want (sloped vs. rounded)
- Breast tissue thickness
- The amount of projection you want
During your consultation, you will be able to see and hold different implant “sizers” to get an initial idea of the size implant recommended for you. We will also take measurements of your chest, and other areas to evaluate how your unique anatomy will affect your results.
Other Factors to Consider
Some women don’t want an obvious breast augmentation – they simply want to create a more balanced and proportionate figure. Other women very large implants and prefer an “implanted” look. When thinking about your own goals for your breast augmentation, consider:
- Your lifestyle – If you are an athlete, you may not want overly large breast implants, since they can potentially be cumbersome during strenuous activity.
- Your personal preferences – Do you want breasts that look as natural as possible, or do you prefer an “implanted” look? What kind of breast profile do you prefer? Bringing pictures of women with the look you like best can help us narrow down the right size and other breast augmentation options.
