Q: I finally decided to get a breast augmentation. But how do I know what size to get?
Do not feel that you are unique with this concern, because most patients ask about breast augmentation sizes when they first come into our office. However, after the consultation and custom sizing, they feel very comfortable with their choice.
Do a little breast augmentation research
Of course, this is a personal decision, and most patients start with a general opinion of how they want to look. Our before-and-after gallery on our website can provide assistance, as can your own consideration of how you think that people you know or even celebrities you see look when they wear the same type of clothing that you would like to wear after you have your procedure.
When you come in for your private consultation, we will discuss your body type and your amount of breast tissue. In addition to me, my cosmetic coordinator is very experienced in making recommendations that will make you look your very best, including high-profile implants. We also will have you “try out” various sizes under any clothing you wish to bring with you, so you can get an excellent idea how you will appear with different sized implants.
Finally, I need to mention that some patients also give a lot of consideration to what they think their friends, family or spouse will say, or how they think you should look. While this may be a factor, I urge you to make your final decision based on how you feel you want to look. It’s your body, and you are the only person that will live with your decision every minute of the day.
