If you think that you are going to walk into your plastic surgeon’s office, tell him what cup 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 cup size guarantees.
There is absolutely no way for anyone to know exactly what cup 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.
