WomanMirrorThere are many factors involved when a patient is considering the right implant size for their breast augmentation. A number of measurements will be taken, and these will help determine the ideal size of implant. There are also a number of other factors that need to be considered as well. The width of the chest wall, the thickness and quality of the breast tissue and skin, the desired profile and breast appearance, age and amount of sagging experienced, and the placement of the implants can have an impact on the final results for this procedure.

The same size breast implant may look very different on various body types, so all of the factors involved in each case need to be considered before a final implant size can be chosen. I partner with my patient to look at all of the factors and evaluate the possible sizes that may be the right fit, and then make recommendations based on these considerations.
