Do you know how to pick implants for your breast augmentation?
Most people think that all they need to do is pick out a size and the work is done. But selecting implants isn’t like shopping for a simple shirt; there are numerous factors to consider beyond size.
The Shape of You
Given you are looking into augmentation, you may not fully love your shape. However, it must factor into the implants you choose. Everything from the width of your shoulders to your overall weight should be considered when selecting the implants that will look best.
Implants should enhance your features and overall look, not make things appear out of balance.
Breast Implant Sizing
Sizing is just one factor to have in mind, but it is an important one. However, most patients are unprepared for this. It is common for women to come into their consultation talking about their desired cup size, but bra sizes aren’t standardized, and implants are measured in CCs, not ABCs.
Breast Implant Profiles
Even with the same CCs, breast implants will look different. Some may have a wider base but not project out from the chest wall much, while others can be narrow with significant projection. There is also the shape to consider: round, or a more natural tear-drop shape.
Breast Implant Material
Finally, you will need to decide which filling you want your breast implants to have. There are two options to choose from: saline and silicone. Each has its advantages and its drawbacks, so which one is right for you will depend on your goals.
