A Guide to Choosing the Right Implant Size
The decision to get breast implants is an easy one for many women – it’s deciding on the right size that can be the tough part. Many clients begin the breast augmentation process with a certain cup size in mind, only to determine that a different size would be more proportionate with their body.
Finding the right size is not as easy as it sounds, which is why Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Wigoda and his staff help each patient through the process of choosing the best fit for your body and your lifestyle with sizers – implants you can try on that will help you get a more realistic idea of how the size will look.
Dr. Wigoda and his team want to ensure you’re fully satisfied with your results. Follow this guide to choosing the right implant size.
Consider your wardrobe. When trying to determine the correct implant size for your body, try on sizers with different outfits that are representative of your typical wardrobe. This can help you get a realistic idea of how you’ll look on a daily basis. Bring casual clothing, professional clothing, and even a cocktail dress to determine how your look will change.
Consider your body type and shape. Everyone’s body is different, which is why it’s important to choose a size that’s appropriate for your body. Leaner women with smaller natural breasts might consider medium sized implants rather than large. Women with a stronger build can carry larger sized implants that are heavier. Those with a smaller frame may want to opt for a smaller size that works best with their body, for a natural look.
Consider your age. Although you may be deciding on breast implants in your 20s, when picking the right size consider how they will look and feel in your 30s, 40s, and 50s. This may help you scale down your size a bit to something that will remain comfortable over time.
Consider your personality. The size of your breasts can alter how others perceive you. If you’re someone who prefers to look great without attracting unwanted attention, you may want to avoid bigger implants. If on the other hand, you want breasts that are larger than what would be proportionate, Dr. Wigoda can help you accomplish this as well.
Consider your fitness. If exercise is a part of your daily routine? Are you a runner or serious athlete? If so, you may want to factor this into your implant size decision. Larger implants can cause discomfort and interfere with a fitness routine.
Go with what you’re comfortable with. No one else should dictate which size you choose for yourself. If you are requesting a size that your surgeon doesn’t agree with, further discussions are necessary to ensure you understand the reasoning. Don’t feel left out of the decision-making process.
Miami plastic surgeon, Dr. Wigoda and his staff, are extremely helpful in guiding you through the process of choosing the right implant size, but keep these tips in mind as you make your decision.
