Choosing the Right Implant Size

Breast enlargement surgery, commonly known as a ‘boob job’ or ‘breast augmentation’, is a significant decision. One of the primary considerations is the desired size post-surgery. However, selecting an implant isn’t as straightforward as picking a bra size.

Understanding Implant Sizes:

Breast implant sizes are measured in cubic centimetres (cc’s). The higher the cc number, the larger the implant volume. It’s essential to focus on the desired final appearance rather than a specific cup size. Even if someone you know opted for a particular cc during their procedure, it might not be the ideal choice for you due to differences in body frames and desired outcomes.

Factors Influencing Implant Size:

  • Desired Look: Your surgeon will consider your vision for the post-surgery appearance, ensuring it aligns with what’s achievable.
  • Current Breast Shape: The existing shape and amount of breast tissue play a role in determining the suitable implant size.
  • Body Frame: The implant should complement your overall physique.
  • Surgeon’s Expertise: Based on their extensive experience, the surgeon will recommend the implant size, profile, and shape that they believe will best achieve your desired look.

Things to Consider:

  • Lifestyle: If you lead an active, sporty life, larger implants might not be the most comfortable choice.
  • Fashion Preferences: Your new breast size will influence how clothes fit. Consider if you prefer going bra-less or if you’d like a fuller appearance in certain outfits.
  • Public Perception: A significant increase in size might draw more attention. Think about your comfort level with potential remarks on your new figure.
  • Long-Term Considerations: Breast implants typically last 10-15 years before needing replacement. Reflect on your potential life changes in the next decade and whether the chosen size will still be suitable.
