When Choosing a Desired Breast Size, Consider These Factors

Desired Breast Size

Factors to Consider When Choosing Desired Breast Size

Many women who come to us for breast augmentation have a desired breast size in mind that they want. While knowing about what cup size you would like to be can be a starting point for determining breast implant size, it is not really an accurate measurement.

Cup sizes on bras can vary greatly depending on the manufacturer and style of the bra. For this reason, cup sizes may vary no matter how much care you take when choosing breast size. In addition, it is very difficult to determine what cup size you should have for your body style and type.

Instead of focusing on cup size, you and your surgeon should be focusing on choosing the right breast implants for your body type, shape, and size. By taking these things into consideration, and by using digital projections of what you will look like after surgery, you can choose the perfect breast size for you.

Body Type

Your desired breast size should match your frame. If you are a petite person with a small frame, you aren’t going to want wide or large breast implants. Your body has a natural shape to it, and your breast implants should not be much wider than the width of your breast, especially if you are older.

Body Shape

If you are a more curvy person, you will be able to get away with much larger implants. If you are thin with a slight frame, you will probably want to go with smaller implants. You want your body to be proportionate, so getting too large implants for your body shape could make you seem off balance.


How large you can go with breast implants also has quite a bit to do with age. Young women age 20 or over could get larger breasts than a woman in her 40s or 50s because younger skin is more elastic. Remember that your skin must stretch over the new bigger breast size. If your skin has lost its elasticity and you don’t have excess skin, breast size could be determined for you.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
