If you are considering breast augmentation surgery, congratulations! Enhancing your breasts can be a positive, life-altering pursuit. Nonetheless, it is a serious decision, and there are a few things to consider when choosing the breast implant size that is right for you. Here, Dr. Himansu Shah of Signature Institute of Aesthetic Sculpting discusses three important factors to keep in mind when deciding the size of your breast implants.
Consider Your Unique Body Type
Your unique body type and frame are what make you beautiful and special, so keep them in mind when deciding on an implant size. For instance, if you are petite, you might want to avoid breast implants that have a very wide base or are too large for your frame overall. Otherwise, you might end up with a top-heavy look. Similarly, women that already have curvaceous figures may choose implants that either are more voluminous or have more outward projection to complement their figure.
Bring Photos to Your Consultation
When discussing your aesthetic goals for breast implant surgery with Dr. Shah during consultation, it helps to bring in photos of women with breasts you admire, so he can get a better idea of the look you desire. Sharing photos with your Las Vegas plastic surgeon is also a great way to make sure you and he are envisioning the same surgical outcome. However, make sure to choose photos of women who have a similar body type and frame as you.
Don’t Rely on Bra Cup Size Alone
Discussing the bra cup size you ultimately desire with Dr. Shah is a helpful starting point. Nonetheless, you should not use bra cup size as your only reference to illustrate the implant size you desire. This is because many bra manufacturers use different measurements for the same cup size. For instance, what one bra manufacturer refers to as an A cup might be referred to as a B cup by another manufacturer.
