Choosing the right size for your breast implants is critical to the overall success of your breast augmentation. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals in detail, and provide you with a variety of tools to help you better understand your options. Your surgeon will work with you to determine a breast implant size, shape, and profile that best meets your individual needs.

Some of the different methods we use to evaluate implant size include:

  • VECTRA® 3D Imaging – This innovative digital system is designed to help you visualize your breast augmentation results. First, we capture multiple images of your treatment area from different angles to build a 3D model of you in the system. This model can then be manipulated to see how each breast implant option will affect your final results.
  • Implant sizers – At your consultation, you will have the opportunity to try on various implant “sizers” to get an idea for how different breast implant sizes will look and feel.
  • Anatomic evaluation – We will take careful measurements of your chest in order to determine the ideal balance and proportion for breast augmentation. Some patients want the most natural look possible, one that complements their unique figure. Other patients may want to go larger, regardless of how noticeable the results may appear.

We will consider a wide range of variables when discussing breast implant size, including your current breast volume, the thickness of your breast tissue, the amount of projection you want from the chest wall, and the shape you are looking for (sloped vs. rounded). Your lifestyle is also an important factor to consider. For example, if you are an athlete, you may not want breast implants that are too large, since their weight can potentially interfere with your performance.
