5 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT CHOOSING THE RIGHT BREAST IMPLANT SIZE
There are many important decisions that you will have to make during your breast augmentation procedure, but among the most impactful is the size of your breast implants. This will affect the proportions of your figure, your wardrobe choices, and your overall look. While you may have a certain cup size in mind when you embark on your body contouring journey, there are multiple factors to consider before settling on a certain size of implant.
A reputable plastic surgeon will explore all of your options with you during your private consultation and explain the pros and cons of each implant size. Through careful research and by trying on the implants under your blouse, you will be able to reach a decision that is perfectly suited to your body, your lifestyle, and your aesthetic sensibilities. Below we will explore 5 things to keep in mind before moving forward with your breast augmentation.
1. Your lifestyle
Your lifestyle and activity level will be important factors when considering the size of your implants. If you are dedicated to high-intensity workouts, marathon running, volleyball, or you regularly play sports, extra-large implants may inhibit your freedom of movement.
2. Your wardrobe
It’s also a good idea to consider how you like to dress when contemplating implant size. Do you enjoy going braless, or do you love wearing revealing dresses and tops that amplify your cleavage? Would you prefer that your breast augmentation results are more subtle? Or would you like to have more dramatic results? These are all important questions that should factor into your choice of implant size.
3. Your support system
Undergoing breast augmentation is a personal decision, but that doesn’t mean that your partner, friends, and family can’t help you to make the best choice possible. You could always bring a trusted friend or significant other to your breast augmentation consultation and listen to their perspective on your decision. They may be able to give you feedback based on prior conversations since they might have heard you talking about your breast augmentation over the past few months or years.
4. Your future
When choosing your breast implant size, it’s important to think about how you will feel not just in the short-term but in five or ten years from today. Will you still be happy with the implants that you’re currently considering? Try to think about how you will want to look when you are older and choose implants that seem to be the best fit for your life both today and tomorrow.
5. Your plastic surgeon
Your plastic surgeon is an extremely important resource when it comes to choosing implant size. Through your research, you have selected an experienced, knowledgeable surgeon who has years of expertise helping women choose the best implant sizes for their bodies. Utilize your plastic surgeon’s point of view and put your faith in their opinion.
