When it comes to breast augmentation, the biggest question for most women is obvious: what size implants should I get?
Several factors go into picking the right breast implant size, including your natural body shape and type and your goals for your final result. Here is what you need to know about going bigger without going too big.
More Than Cup Size
One of the biggest misconceptions that many people have about breast implants is that you choose them based on the cup size you want to be, and that’s it. Not only is this an oversimplification, but cup size isn’t a measurement used with breast implants. Breast implant volume is measured in cubic centimeters, or cc. The smallest start at 125 cc and can go as large as 850 cc.
And volume isn’t all there is to consider. Other factors to keep in mind include:
- Breast implant shape
- Breast implant projection
- Your shoulder width and chest shape
- Your overall size
The implant shape determines much of how your breasts look and feel, while projection determines how wide they are and how far they stand out from the chest wall. And of course, you want to make certain that your implants are balanced with your overall figure.
So, How Big Is too Big?
Ultimately, there is no universal answer to this question. What is too large on one person might be too small on another. Work with an experienced plastic surgeon who can guide you in your decision and ensure your results compliment the rest of your look.
