So you've decided to get breast augmentation. You're super excited and ready to get going! You may think the hard part is over, but the truth is the hard part is yet to come. The hardest part of the process is deciding what size you want to be. Here are a few things you may want to consider before you pick a size:
- What is your Body type? One size doesn't fit all; neither does one size look good on everyone. If you have a smaller body type, large breasts may not give you the look you're going for. Larger breasts on a smaller body are also more prone to sagging, so shoot for medium.
- Understand sizes. When it comes to breast implants, you need to understand the sizes that they come in. They don't use the size ranges you're used to: A, B, C, D, etc., but they are measured in cc's instead. Implants range from 100-1000 cc's.
- What are your limitations? If you can at least come up with a range of sizes that you're comfortable with, you'll have somewhere to start. Having one particular size in mind is unrealistic because there are so many other factors to consider other than a particular number you think sounds like a good size. Have a limitation in mind so your doctor knows where you stand.
- Do you plan on breast feeding? If you are still of the age where you could possibly have more children and plan to breast feed them, you may want to lean towards a smaller size. Breast feeding tends to stretch out your breasts, and a larger size will increase this.
- Have a fashion show! If you're still trying to decide on a size, try different sizes on and see what looks best. You can do this with the help of your surgeon. They have sample sizes in office so you can try different sizes one. Or if you'd rather do it from the comfort of your home, you can do that too. Simply put rice in a bag and stuff it in your bra. One cup equals 235 cc's. After wearing that around for a while, adjust accordingly. If you want bigger, add more. If you want less, take some out. Then once you've found the perfect size, measure how much you have left. Keep that number handy when you go back to see your surgeon.
Once you've decided on a size and gone over it with your doctor, the rest is easy. Use these 5 tips to decide what size is best for you. The more time you spend finding the perfect size the lower your chances of having to come back and do it again. You'll be happy you took the time.
