One of the major questions most women have when considering breast augmentation is what size do they want to be? There are many factors that need to be considered prior to breast augmentation, however, consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation will help you to make an informed decision to determine your best breast implant size.
These are a list of some of the conditions that need to be considered
- Body Frame
- Skin Laxity
- Incision/Procedure Type
- Silicone Breast Implant VS Saline Breast Implants
- High profile vs Low Profile
- Metric Volume Measurement
- Breast Implant Shape, anatomical, tear-drop or biodimensional
- Other Health Considerations
One of the primary issues women have when trying to determine the right breast implant size for themselves is how their augmented breast will look on their body after surgery. Many women use self-help methods like stuffing their bras with stockings filled with rice to help them get an idea of what they will look like. Recently, Allergan, the makers of the Natrelle line of breast implants, have created a FREE pre-consultation breast implant kit and a $170 rebate once they schedule their breast implant surgery. This kit is designed with actual implants to help women decide on the right implant size to meet their goals.
Considering all the options women have today to determine breast implant sizing, it is still best to gather as much information as you can, including meeting with several board certified plastic surgeons who specialize in breast augmentation prior to making your decision. Most surgeons will often show you a gallery of their surgical results which can give you confidence of their aesthetic skill.
