How to Choose Breast Implant Size

Posted on Jun 7, 2012 Breast Implants

Only you can determine your ideal breast size. Once you have decided on your desired breast size, we can easily determine the right breast implant size to achieve that result. A good place to start is with pictures of you at a time you were happy with the size of your breasts. Perhaps you were pregnant or had gained weight, causing your breasts to swell, or maybe it was just when your breasts had youthful fullness. If you can find a time when you were happy with the appearance of your breasts, we can get you back there. We might also take a look at before and after photos for breast augmentation. In Dr. Bottger’s nearly 20 years of experience as a board-certified plastic surgeon, he has helped many women achieve the results they desired with breast implants. We can likely find several that are similar to your body type and may help you make decisions about your cosmetic goals. Once you have decided on your ideal breast size, Dr. Bottger will recommend a size of breast implants based on measurements of your breast and chest, as well as determine a range of breast implant sizes that are appropriate for your body. Finally, we can fine tune implant volumes by using implant sizers, sample breast implants of varying sizes. We will place these in a bra and you can wear them with several different outfits to help you make a decision. In addition to size, the breast implant shape and the placement of the breast implant will impact your final results, and Dr. Bottger will help you understand those effects so you can make an informed decision.
