Choosing the size of your new breasts is definitely one of the most exciting parts of breast augmentation. Finally, you get to design the breasts you have always wanted, however, it’s vitally important that you choose a size that not only suits your lifestyle but your body too.

If you want the results of your procedure to look natural and feminine, you can’t choose a size that’s going to look completely wrong on your body frame. Obviously, the choice is yours at the end of the day but it’s highly recommended that you consider your lifestyle and your body frame before you make a final decision on the size of your implants.

These breast implant details and image gallery will give you a better idea of what your results should look like.

What to Consider When Deciding on the Size of Your Implants

Your age. In most cases, younger women tend to prefer a larger size implant, while older women prefer something a little more modest. Everyone is different though and you need to choose a size that’s going to make you feel good.

Physical activity. Before you decide on a breast implant size, consider how active you are. Unfortunately, larger breasts will make physical activity slightly more challenging and it can lead to back pain if you’re active on a regular basis.

Your fashion choices. How you prefer to dress should also factor into your breast implant decision. Most clothing is designed to work with a C-cup, so if you think you may want to go bigger than a C-cup, keep in mind that your clothing choices will become a lot more limited.

Family planning. If you are planning to have children in the future, keep in mind that the size of your breasts will change during and after your pregnancy/s. You may want to wait until after your final pregnancy to undergo breast augmentation.

Your weight. Since your breast augmentation surgery will be tailored to your current weight and body shape, it’s important to remember that any weight loss or gain could affect the size of your new breasts.

How Your Surgeon Helps You Decide on Size

There really is no one-size-fits-all approach to choosing a new cup size. Here are some of the factors that your surgeon will take into consideration before recommending implant sizes:

  • The width of your chest
  • Skin laxity
  • Your body frame
  • The diameter of your breasts
  • The shape of the implants you’re interested in
  • Your muscular structure

Because there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration, many surgeons recommend focusing on your desired appearance instead of a specific size.

Breast augmentation is definitely not a process that you should rush, particularly if you want to walk away 100% happy. From choosing the right surgeon to finding an implant that suits your lifestyle, doing your research and making informed decisions is the best way to approach this surgery.
