Because breast implants are measured by volume rather than by bra sizes, many women often feel overwhelmed when choosing the best implant size. Although 350ccs of volume may be one of the most common implant sizes, that doesn’t make it a one-size-fits-all. Instead of springing for this particular implant size based purely on its popularity, consider these three tips for choosing the best breast implant for you.
1. 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. Rather than fixating on one particular implant size, think about the results you’d like to see in the overall balance and proportions of your body.
2. 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.*
3. Work with a Skilled Plastic Surgeon
Choosing the right implant size can be a major decision, and working with an experienced plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation can be one of the most important factors. A board-certified plastic surgeon will be able to guide you through your various options, as well as assess your unique body structure to help you determine which size and type of implant are right for you.
