Breast Implants Size Selection

Q: How many CCs should I go to get my desired look? I just went in for my pre-op appointment and loved the look of 300s using the sports bra method. But my doctor said I should order 385–415s to get the look I desire. I am currently a 34A, but DO NOT want to be a D cup. I desire to be a 34C, or large 34B. I am scared the 385–415s are too big! Help!

Front and side view pictures would have been very helpful. Breasts implants size selection depends on patient’s desire, as well as chest and breasts circumference measurement.

So, if you are indeed a 34A cup size currently, you need 300cc implants to become 34C cup size. However, in my experience, many patients who wear A cup size bra are toward the smaller end of an A cup size.

If that is your situation, you might need 375–425cc, depending on your measurement.  Your surgeon has to take direct measurement of your chest and breasts circumference in order to make the correct recommendation for your implants’ size.

Not all results are the same! Experience, skills, and aesthetic eye are critical for good outcome. Do your due diligence carefully, and choose your surgeon wisely to avoid bad results and the need for corrective surgery.

Always consult with experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons from an accredited surgery center for your safety. Most importantly, check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery and make sure that they are numerous, consistent, and attractive, with nice cleavage, perkiness, symmetry, and are natural-looking.
