The decision to have breast augmentation is a process that requires several different factors before reaching the final decision. One big question patients ask regarding breast augmentation is “what size breast implants should I get”?
Choosing a breast implant size can be very confusing. Breast size affects many aspects of a woman’s life, including her relationships, social interactions and overall physical well-being. We want to make sure that patients have the resources and guidance to choose the perfect implant size! Here are some of the most important factors to consider before choosing what implant size for your breast augmentation maryland.
- Your body size and weight
- Whether you exercise regularly
- Your style and wardrobe
- The present shape of your breasts
- Characteristics of your breast tissue
- Characteristics of your chest wall
Your personal preference will also affect choices like:
- The shape of your new breasts – round or tear-drop shaped?
- A natural-looking or obviously-augmented appearance?
- The push-up-bra-look or simply regaining shape after weight loss, childbirth or surgery?
Don’t fixate on bra size. Cup size is a subjective measurement. Everyone wears their bras differently, and sizes vary among manufacturers. Telling your surgeon you want to be a “C” or “D” can start a discussion but should not be the determining factor.
Try them on for size. It’s almost impossible for most women to visualize what size implants will look best on their bodies based on units of volume. That’s why Dr. Schreiber offers ways for women to try on different sizes of silicone breast implant “sizers” at your consultation.
Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber’s goal is to deliver natural-looking results that are proportionate to your body shape and size. Bringing pictures from magazines or studying before and after pictures together can go a long way toward helping your doctor understand your surgical goals. If you clearly communicate what you want, the best surgeons understand how to achieve your desired results.
