If you are considering breast augmentation, choosing the size of the implant is one of the most crucial elements. There are several factors to consider when choosing the best implant size for you. Read on to learn more about these factors to help in your decision-making process.

Make the Most of Your Consult

A consultation appointment is the first step toward breast augmentation. Before scheduling a consult, take time to research the surgeon. A reputable board-certified plastic surgeon is key, as they have the experience and skill to achieve the desired results safely and successfully. Dr. Power achieved board certification in plastic surgery (FRCSC), presented numerous medical presentations, and been granted many awards for her success, so you can feel confident in her hands.

Breast Implant Options

The two main types of breast implants include saline and silicone. Saline implants are filled with salt water while silicone implants are filled with silicone gel and may have a more natural feel. Breast implants are also available in many different sizes to meet the needs of individuals. You should take the time to discuss implant placement with your surgeon during consultation. Implants can be placed on top of or under the chest muscle and each option comes with its own advantages.

Things to Consider

Your Personal Goals

A patient should always consider her personal goals when it comes to determining the right size breast implant for her. Taking the time to think about factors such as breast size, feel, shape, and more can assist in the decision-making process.

Your Body Type

Women should consider their chest, shoulder, and hip width, height, and weight to determine which breast implant size is best for a balanced appearance. It may also be helpful for women to look at photos online to see what different breast implant sizes look on women of a similar height/weight as them.

Your Lifestyle

Talk to your surgeon regarding the best size implant for your lifestyle. Those who are very physically active may not want very large breasts, as this may interfere with performance. Very large implants may also be affected more noticeably by pregnancy.

Your Wardrobe

Taking into account what you wear on a daily basis may also impact your breast implant selection. Thinking about how your new breasts will appear in your current wardrobe may help you decide which implant is right for you.

Your Natural Breast Size

For breast implants, patients will require enough breast tissue and skin to accommodate implants. Choosing a breast implant that is too large may cause sagging, rippling, and thinning tissue.
