Because breast implants are measured by volume rather than by bra sizes, many women feel overwhelmed when choosing the best implant size for them.
Although 350ccs of volume may be one of the most common implant sizes, breast augmentation is never a one-size-fits-all procedure. Instead of springing for 350cc breast implants based purely on their popularity, consider these tips for choosing the best breast implant for you.
Consider the Overall Balance and Proportions of Your Body
Sharing pictures of what you’d like your results to look like can help to ensure that you and your plastic surgeon are on the same page. It’s important to understand that the same implant size can vary greatly in an appearance on two different women. 350ccs can look very different on a tall, broad-shouldered woman compared to a woman with a more petite frame, for example.
Another point to keep in mind is that bigger breast implants aren’t necessarily better. Today’s trends in breast augmentation tend toward the more natural, subtle look rather than the dramatic silhouette that’s normally associated with getting breast implants.
Rather than fixating on a certain number of ccs, think about the results you’d like to see in terms of the overall balance and proportions of your body.
Factor in Unique Anatomical Features
Another reason why a one-size-fits-all implant just doesn’t exist is because every woman’s anatomy is unique. Work with your plastic surgeon to discuss important details like the broadness of your chest, the natural position of your breasts and the shape and placement of your rib cage in relation to your breasts. These are all factors that can influence the final results of your breast augmentation.
Work with a Skilled Plastic Surgeon
Finding a great plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation can be one of the most important factors in seeing beautiful breast implant results you’ll love. A board-certified plastic surgeon can guide you through your various options for breast implant size, shape and type, as well as assess your unique body structure to help you determine the ideal number of ccs recommended to help you achieve your “dream look.”*
