You've been dreaming about altering your bustline with breast augmentation for quite some time. You have discussed your dreams and plans with your loved ones and friends, received advice from people you trust, and considered how you will change your wardrobe once your surgery is complete. You have a definite idea of your own personal image of feminine beauty and how you would like to achieve that image. But once you have made the decision to have breast augmentation surgery, how do you choose what size your new breasts will be? Is it true that bigger is better? How big is too big?

Assess Your Anatomy

Assessing your body type will go a long way in determining what size breast implants you should consider for breast augmentation. Take a good look at the rest of your body. The shape of your hips, the turn of your waist, and your overall height. These are all important factors in determining what size breasts will be a perfect complement to your frame.

Dr. Andres will work closely with you to evaluate your figure and determine the size of the breast implant to achieve your vision. Listening closely to what your desires are as well as discussing your goals with you, will be critical factors to ensure that your hopes in size are met.  

The condition of your skin and tissue will also be a determining factor in the size of the breast implant that will best be used for your Scottsdale breast augmentation. Your skin must be able to stretch over the new breast implant. Dr. Andres will determine the width of your rib cage, the width of your breasts, the distance between your breasts (and how you want to maintain that), and your nipple position. You will want to make sure that your final breast augmentation result is symmetrical. Utilizing this biodimensional approach to implant sizing along with a visual assistant of a sizing system, you will be sure that the size of the implant chosen will be the right one for you.  These are all important factors in determining the best size breast implants to use for your breast augmentation.

Discuss Your Goals

It is important to have an open, honest conversation with your surgeon about your goals for your appearance following breast augmentation surgery. Bring pictures to your consultation of breasts that you admire and believe are a reflection of how you would like your breasts to appear once your augmentation is complete. You should be as specific as you can be about your vision for your new feminine form so your surgeon can create a comprehensive treatment plan and be sure that he understands your priorities in undergoing breast augmentation.

Set Boundaries: How Big is Too Big?

Now it's time to forget about bra size. Bra sizes are not standard throughout the industry, and what's considered a D cup for one manufacturer may be a C cup for another. Once you've found a size that you think you will be happy with, consider taking it one step bigger. The most common reason for breast revision surgery is women wish they had initially chosen a larger breast implant size once their initial augmentation surgery is complete. You don't want to find yourself wishing, once again, that you had a fuller, more feminine figure. Make sure you'll be happy for the rest of your life with the decisions you make.
