In my practice this is one of the most commonly asked questions by women seeking breast enhancement. Choosing the right implant size will result in a longer lasting, esthetically pleasing result and a happy patient. In my opinion any size could be the right size as long as certain rules and guidelines are followed.
The successful outcome is based on a number of factors. The most important being the chest width. Implants are available in different sizes and shapes. For any given chest size, patients have three options to choose from. For women requiring larger cup size, high profile implants are suitable. For moderate enlargement, medium profile implants are available, whereas low profile implants are well suited for subtle breast enhancement. So the final selection depends upon the patient’s desire, existing breast volume and the skin condition.
Some of the other important factors include height and weight of the patient. In general, women who are taller and heavier can tolerate larger volume breast implants. Another important factor is the hip width. Slightly wider implants are desirable in women with wider hips to achieve a balanced result. Make sure you discuss all these factors with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
