What Size Breast Implants to Choose

Breast implants are a fantastic way to amp up your look and to give you the added boost of confidence that you may have been lacking. That being said, there are some different factors to consider when it comes to your breast implants and how you choose what size to have ultimately used.

The first factor is the size of your breast before the augmentation. Very small breasts, for example a size A cup, may not be able to handle a size D implant for a few different reasons. For starters, a breast implant uses the existing tissue and skin to house the new implant. Very small breast simply do not have enough tissue and skin to cover very large implants.

The next factor to keep in mind is your overall height and weight at the time of the augmentation. We have all seen it, those itty bitty women with size FF breasts. If that is the path you want to take, certainly take it, but if you want more natural looking implants your size does make a difference. Petite women look best with smaller breast so if you are say five foot tall and weigh 120 lbs, a small C cup would fit nicely.

The last thing to keep in mind is that larger breasts may lead to complications down the road. Larger implants will still cause sagging just like larger natural breasts, they will cause backaches, and they will make it difficult to find clothes that fit properly. Your surgeon will likely have a software program on hand that can show you what you would look like with the size breast you are considering so that you can get a better picture before you decide. They will also make suggestions to help make the process easier overall.
