When you are considering breast augmentation surgery, one of the most important decisions you will make is what size implant to choose. There are a variety of factors to consider when making this decision, including your body type, breast shape, and desired outcome. With the help of a plastic surgeon, many women can obtain recommendations regarding the best type of implant and size for their needs. Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who can discuss some tips on choosing the right size breast implant for your upcoming breast augmentation procedure in Huntington Station, NY.
What to consider when selecting a breast implant type and size
- Body type. One of the most important factors to consider when choosing an implant size is your body type. If you have a smaller frame, you will likely need a smaller implant than someone with a larger frame. Additionally, if you have ample breast tissue already, you may not need as large an implant as someone who does not have as much breast tissue. The implant’s profile is also important to consider. A higher-profile implant will give you more projection, while a lower-profile implant will provide less projection.
- Current shape of the breasts. Another factor to consider when selecting an implant size is the shape of your breasts. Some women have round breasts, while others have more of an oval shape. If you are seeking to achieve a more rounded appearance, you will likely need a larger implant than someone who wants a more natural look. Additionally, the size of your nipples and areolas should be taken into account when selecting an implant size.
- Final results. Your desired outcome is also important to consider when choosing an implant size. If you want to achieve maximal cleavage, you will need a wider implant. If you are looking to achieve more of an hourglass figure, you may want to consider an implant with more volume.
