After deciding to go through a breast augmentation procedure, you will need to choose the best implant size for your frame that can be challenging for some people. Most women want to have natural results after the procedure. Your surgeon should take you through the process and the risks involved in it when it comes to choosing the best breast implant size for your frame.
Here we will discuss some of the significant factors to consider.
The Implant Size
Try and visualize the ideal breast size that you’d want. You can do this by using computer simulations showing how you would look with different shapes and sizes. You can try different implant sizes, or you can review before and after photos of women who have had the same procedure and had the same frame as you. Also, note that each body is different, and individual results will vary because each woman will have differences in breast tissue.
Choose an implant size that is not too big or too small for you. Choosing an implant size that is smaller than your ideal size will result in less satisfactory results. By doing this, you may end up with residual sagging as the shape and size will not correctly fill out your breast pocket.
On the other hand, choosing an implant that is too large for your breast tissue will put you at an increased risk of the poor cosmetic outcome. Such implants will look less natural, and you might need a breast lift procedure in the future due to the extra weight.
Body Shape and Frame
Large breasts, whether they are natural or augmented, are basically heavy. Therefore, it is no surprise that heavy breasts would take a toll on the body, leading to back and shoulder pain and fatigue, especially if you have a small frame. Large breasts suit women who have large structures or strong muscles. Those with broad shoulders and a larger frame can go with the low volume option to create an even proportion. A high profile option may be ideal for those with a small frame because it has a narrower width.
Bra Cup Size
Bra cup sizes typically come in size A, B, C, D going up, whereas implants are measured in cubic centimeters or cc in short. Therefore there is no universal correlation between implant size and your desired cup size. But referencing a bra cup size that you’d want can be a bit helpful. Bra cup sizes vary depending on the manufacturer. Cup size depends on several factors;
- The bra manufacturer
- Your chest wall shape
- Current amount of breast volume
- The size, type, and profile of the breast implant
- The degree to which the breast fills the bra
