Why You Should Carefully Consider Breast Implant Size

The decision to go forward with breast augmentation is not the last choice you have to make in this process. In addition to choosing the right doctors, surgery center, and timing, you also need to carefully consider breast implant size. It’s not as cut and dry as you might think.

It is a good idea to go into your consultation with an idea of what breast implant size you think you want to be. Keep in mind that a lot of women wear the wrong size bra. Don’t go by what you think you want to be based on what you are now. Go to a bra specialist to be measured and discuss the right cup size for where you want to be after your procedure.

But it is also important to go into this with an open mind. When the surgeon starts showing you implants, they aren’t going to look like a breast at all. They are also going to be of odd sizes,  as implants are designed in ‘volume’ measurements of cc’s. You might think, “That implant can’t possibly give me a D cup,” or “My best friend has 400’s”. It’s important to remember  that in actuality the size of the implant isn’t the only thing that factors into the actual size of your breast. Your existing breast tissue and skin laxity along with the width and length of your chest shape are some characteristics of your body that your surgeon will assess at your consult visit. 

There are implants of varying sizes and ‘profiles”, as well as variations in materials used. All of these variations also have to be factored into deciding the implant to get the cup size you desire. It is best to give your surgeon a goal cup size and then be flexible in choosing options so you get what works best 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.
