When considering undergoing a procedure such as a breast augmentation, it’s best to understand the full extent of what is required of you. These procedures should not be taken lightly, and it’s best if you seek out skilled plastic surgeons for the right results. It is also essential that you take the time to consider what breast size is good for you.
What Is a Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as a “boob job” by patients, involves using breast implants or fat to increase the size of your breasts, to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, to achieve a more rounded shape or to improve natural breast size asymmetry.
How to Choose the Best Size For You
Although the decision to get breast implants may be easy for women with small breasts, the size of the implant is a tougher decision for them. The best thing to do is to arm yourself with information, and then work with your doctor to make this all-important choice.
Breast implant sizes are available from 100 to 1000 cubic centimeters. One cubic centimeter is equal to one milliliter, or about 0.3 ounces. The most common sizes range from 300 to 400 cc. They also differ by their diameter and height. With so many breast implant sizes, finding the right one is not as easy as it sounds.
What to Consider
There are many things you should consider when deciding what breast implant sizes would be perfect for you. Not every implant size may fit every woman. Below are a few of the options to consider before making your final choice.
- Your body type:
- If you are usually a thin person with smaller breasts, extra thought should be given to your breast size.
- Your shape:
- Your body shape also defines what type of breasts will suit you. For example, women with a high build can typically carry larger breasts. Some thin women who get large breast implants suffer from back pain and even consider an implant reduction to alleviate the pain.
- Your age:
- It’s best to consult your trusted plastic surgeon to make sure that your age will not hinder the final results of the breast augmentation.
