How to Determine Implant Size When Considering Augmentation

One decision some women face when considering augmentation is choosing an implant size. Personal tastes and aesthetic principles are truly the best guide, but Las Colinas Centre for Plastic Surgery can help guide you to your better self.

The first thing to think about when considering size is your overall body type. Talk to your surgeon about your ideal figure. Implant size should be a joint decision determined by you and your surgeon. It should be based as much as possible on your individual measurements rather than a specific cup size. Remember that bra cup sizes are not standard.

Consider how you want your breasts to contribute to your ideal overall body shape. Your implant size will ultimately be based on the measurements of your existing breasts, the characteristics of your skin, and your body type. Dr. Whetstone may consider the following:

  • The symmetry of your breasts
  • The width of your breasts
  • Your skin and breast tissue characteristics
  • The location of the implant
  • Your goals and desires for surgery
