How to choose the right Breast size for you

How to choose the right Breast size for you

brasOnce you have decided to have a Breast Augmentation, how do you decide what size implant is best for you?

The goal of Breast Augmentation is to change your breast size proportionally making them larger and fuller in shape. If you’re not sure what breast size you would like to be ask your surgeon a lot questions and look at as many pre- and post-op pictures of patients who are similar in body shape. When it comes to implants, what looks good on one woman may not look good on another.

At your consultation, we will evaluate your chest wall and breasts, including the base and width of your breasts. An implant that fits your width, size and build will create a naturally proportional look. While many women prefer a natural look to make their implants less obvious, others opt for a more dramatic look. Remember…the larger your implant size, the more vulnerable you may be to breast implant complications.

The shape of your body and your lifestyle also should be taken into consideration when choosing your size. For instance, if you are involved in sports, or other physical activities, the size and weight of larger implants will put stress on your breasts and may cause more drooping.

Dr. Weiland believes spending time with patient’s pre-operatively leads to happier patient outcomes and dramatically decreases the need for future re-operations. To help make the right choice, he suggests looking through before and after photographs and trying on implants in different sizes at his office to help you visualize your perfect new size.
