Which Breast Augmentation Size is Right for You?

Breast Implant sizeWhen selecting the right breast augmentation size, there are multiple factors that go into determining the best implant size for you. Breast measurements, desired size, characteristics of your breast, tissue and chest wall are all critical in making the right selection.

Many of us were born with large hips and little breasts. It’s often referred to as pear-shape, and It happens to be the most common female body type. If you are one of the lucky pear-shaped women, then you have probably been wishing for a more proportioned body. If so, breast augmentation may be your answer.

Dr. George Solomon is an experienced breast augmentation surgeon in the Tampa Bay area who has performed thousands of breast augmentations procedures, as well as breast lifts, breast revision, and breast reductions. He finds that women who have this procedure are so happy with their new shape, their clothes fit better, and usually say they wish they had done it sooner.

What Results Can You Expect from Breast Augmentation?

Results depend on what your breasts look like before surgery. Breast enlargement frequently gives women more attractive, fuller, bigger, and prettier breasts. The ideal goal is to maximize available “soft tissue coverage”—the skin, breast tissue, and the muscle that covers the breast implant. This coverage will determine what you will look like after the breast operation. Expect your breasts to become bigger versions of their preoperative selves. Your anatomy, implant size, and implant type (silicone or saline) help determine your look after surgery. Most women with normal breasts who choose natural sizes (B cup to D cup) will look natural and realistic after surgery.

When you have your consultation with Dr. George Solomon, he will discuss with you your expectations and probable outcome. He encourages his patients to have realistic expectations based on their current breast size. However, many of his patients prefer much larger breasts and he is often able to achieve their breast size goals by using larger breast implants which could be as high as 400 cc to 500 cc. Breast implants this size do not work for every woman but can for many. If you are very petite it’s probably going to be too much, but could be fine for a larger tall woman with a broad chest.

Guidelines for Helping You With Your Decision:

  • Lifestyle – Are you very athletic, active in sports? Large breasts may get in your way.
  • Aging Breasts – As you get older, could the weight and size of the breasts become a problem?
  • Consider the clothes you wear  – A really large breast is not going to fit in the same size you’ve been wearing and many times women have to go into much larger sizes and have their clothes altered.

The bottom line, Dr. Solomon and his staff will help you with your decision and explain as many positives and possible negatives for you to consider when deciding a size. Overall, Dr. Solomon says that breast augmentation is one of the most satisfying surgeries he performs. Downtime is very minimal and his patients are soon out enjoying their new, larger breasts.
