How to Determine the Right Size of Implants for Your Body Type

Choosing to alter the appearance of your breasts is a very personal decision. Because every woman is different, every woman may have a different desire as far as how they want their breasts to appear. This includes the size of the breasts.

For many women, changing the size of their breasts is one of the key factors in considering breast augmentation surgery. They may feel unhappy with their current breast size and are looking for a boost of confidence or self-esteem that may come with breast implants. But just how big should a woman go when it comes to implants?

This again is a very personal question as every woman has an idea of what they are looking for. Determining the right size of implant for your body type is an important step to ensure you are completely happy with the results of your surgery.

It is always a good idea to spend some time reviewing galleries of before and after photos of other women who have had breast implants. You may find photos of women whose bodies are similar to yours, giving you an idea of how your breasts might look after the procedure.

As you go through the consultative process with the doctor who will perform the breast implant surgery, measurements of your body and breasts will be taken. These measurements will help give both you and the doctor an idea of what size implants might be most appropriate for you. Additionally, your doctor may have you try on a bra with implant sizers that can give you a basic idea of how your breasts will appear under clothing.

You should also consider your lifestyle, including your physical abilities and goals once you have your breast implants in place. For example, if you are a very active person who spends quite a bit of time in the gym or running, you may want to take that into consideration as you choose the size of your implant. Some women make the mistake of choosing implant that are too big and inhibit their ability to enjoy their normal lifestyle.

There are so many different things to consider as you choose the best size of breast implants for your body type. Remember to focus on what you feel will make you the most happy and give you the boost you are looking for. An experienced doctor, such as Dr. Richard J.
