Have you always wished your chest were bigger? You’re not alone – breast augmentation is a very popular procedure. When you make that decision to go ahead with this surgery, one of the first steps is going to be choosing the new size for your breasts. But how can you even start to make this decision?
What Size Is Best for You?
Perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind when you are trying to decide on the right size implant is that this is your decision and no one else’s – just like the decision to have breast augmentation surgery is yours and no one else’s. Here are some other things to consider:
- Your doctor can help. Dr. Iorio and his staff have done countless breast augmentation procedures, and they likely have some good advice on what size breasts would go well with your body type.
- Think about your lifestyle. You may decide you want very large implants, but will you be comfortable with this decision later? If you are into playing sports, running, or high-intensity workouts, large implants may not fit your lifestyle.
- Think about your body type. You may think you want large implants, but odds are that you also want your implants to look natural. If you have a very small, petite frame, you will probably look and feel better (and more natural) with a smaller implant size. Also keep in mind that a small frame with breasts that are too large can lead to back and shoulder pain.
- Think about your end goals. Are you sure that you want bigger breasts, or are you really concerned that your breasts aren’t as firm as they used to be, that they have lost their shape and elasticity? If this is the case, you may actually want a breast lift instead of breast augmentation. In a breast lift, excess tissue is removed and the breasts are raised, reshaped, and firmed.
