Breast Implant Size

Breast_Implants.jpgOne of the most important decisions to be made when considering a breast augmentation is what breast implant size to choose. There are many factors to consider when selecting breast implant size. It is important to remember that everyone’s body is different, so the same size implant will look different on various body shapes and sizes. When selecting the appropriate size, factors such as anatomy, physique, breast tissue and breast disposition are considered.

With the latest advances in materials, there are a multitude of options that can help to create the most flattering, natural-looking results possible while providing enhanced volume and form. In Denver, experienced cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Serota, offers numerous implant styles, and can help you choose the best implant size based on your anatomic needs and aesthetic goals.

Although bra cups are sized A, B, C and up, breast implants are not. Breast implant sizes are measured by cubic centimeters, r cc for short. Cubic centimeters are the metric volume measurement used to define the capacity of a breast implant. Many patients make the common mistake of thinking that a certain size translates the same way for all people. For example, if a patient’s friend got a 350cc implant, and they think their friend’s breasts look too large, that same volume might not necessarily look too large on them. Similarly, if they like the way a friend’s implants turned out, the same size and shape may not be the right fit for them.

Breast implants come in two materials: saline and silicone. Both styles may be available in a wide range of round and shaped models (such as teardrop), as well as smooth and textured kinds. Each implant has benefits and drawbacks, and what works for your body type and lifestyle may not suit someone else, and vice versa. Silicone typically offers a more natural look and feel; however, saline is a substance naturally produced by the body, which some patients particularly desire.
