Things to Consider When Deciding Your Goal Breast Size


Top Things to Consider When Deciding Your Goal Breast Size

If you think that you are going to walk into your plastic surgeon’s office, tell him what breast size you want, you need to read further for information that may help prepare you for a consultation. There are many factors that impact the appropriate choice of implants used, and not all of them apply to everyone. Here are the top things you should consider and discuss with your surgeon.

There are no breast size guarantees.

There is absolutely no way for anyone to know exactly what breast size you will have after breast augmentation surgery until the procedure is actually performed. Cup size is relative to the type and manufacturer of a bra.   Internal anatomy, breast shape, amount of existing breast tissue, preferred implant location, and skin elasticity are just some patient factors that influence results.  There is no way to see in the mirror what the after result will look like. It is better to underestimate than to overestimate, as heavier breasts can cause their own issues.

Proportionate to your torso

Every woman is unique! Each woman is shaped differently and is a different height. While some women may have longer or shorter legs for their overall frame, the trunk or torso is usually what you want to look at when thinking about proportionate breasts. Choosing implants that are too large for your frame may affect the appearance of your breasts as you get older and may increase the risks of complications in the future. Choosing implants that give you the fulness you desire to achieve a natural appearing breast may be the best and safest choice for a woman long term.  

Sagging shouldn’t be corrected with implants.

If you have significant sagging to your breasts, you may benefit from a breast lift. The breast lift restores your natural breasts to a higher position. If you have also lost volume to your breasts, which can  happen with long-term breastfeeding, you may also benefit from breast implants to restore the volume.

Listen to your plastic surgeon.

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.
