Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure provided by Dr. Thomas Wiener of Houston, TX. However, many women are unsure as to the breast implant size appropriate for their needs. This is why we encourage women to consult with our professionals to determine the correct size implant for their bodies.
How do I choose the proper breast implant size for me?
When deciding on breast implants, size is not the only factor to consider; profile and shape are also important. But in terms of sheer volume, how do you know which size is right for you?
There are a few factors to take into account. First, think about your body type and proportions. Large implants may look out of proportion if you have a more petite frame. Conversely, small implants might not give you the results you want if you have a larger frame.
Second, consider your lifestyle and activities. Larger implants might not be ideal if you lead an active lifestyle or participate in high-impact activities. This is because they could increase your risk of capsular contracture—a hardening of the tissue around the implant.
Third, keep in mind your final goal. What look are you going for? Natural or dramatic? Remember that it might take more than one surgery to achieve your desired look, so talk to your surgeon about your long-term goals.
Once you’ve considered all of these factors, you and your surgeon can decide on the best implant size for you. If you’re still unsure, there are a few ways to help you visualize what different sizes might look like on your body. For example, you can try on sizers in the office, look at before-and-after photos of other patients, or use 3D imaging technology to get a virtual preview of your results.
No matter what size you choose, remember that breast implants are not permanent, and you may need additional surgery down the road to maintain your results. But with the assistance of a skilled and experienced surgeon, you can achieve the look you’ve always wanted.
