What Implant Size Is Best for My Breast Augmentation?

Making sure you select the implant size that is best for your breast augmentation is an important step. You want to assess your body size and shape and think about your lifestyle and your activities, and then you can dream about the type of body you want and how you see your life changing. Together with Dr. Kai Morimoto, a board certified plastic surgeon, you can decide whether a subtle shift or a more dramatic change better suits you. Dr. Morimoto can provide implant sizers and a breast implant profile to help you discover the best size and shape. Developing a relationship and trusting in your plastic surgeon is essential before you undergo your transformation.

Study Your Body and Lifestyle

Before you take the critical step and decide on the size of your implants, it is a good idea to consider your present body proportions. Factors such as your height, weight, and chest width can help determine the best size breasts for your frame. For example, if you are petite, you might select smaller implants, but if you are taller and have bigger bones, you might consider larger ones. Other factors to consider are the width of your actual breast, the position of your nipples, and the elasticity of your skin.

If you are physically active or participate in sports, especially running, you want to make sure you are able to continue with your activities and are not impeded by having larger breasts.

Imagine Your Future

Even though you may have a good idea of your ideal implant size, you may have more questions after considering your body frame and lifestyle. Think about how you want to appear and how you want your life to be. When you want a more natural-looking enhancement, your implants will be smaller, but when you want to appear more voluptuous, you may choose larger implants.

You should also consider your personal style and the clothes you like to wear. The size of your implants will reflect this. It is always best to communicate with your plastic surgeon to ensure you are happy with your results.

How Can Your Plastic Surgeon Help?

Once you know your goals, you can explore different options with Dr. Morimoto. To get a better idea of what your implants might feel like, your plastic surgeon may provide “sizers” for you to try on. You will be able to experiment with different sizes and shapes to see what fits your body best.

At your consultation, you may receive a breast implant profile. The profile can be low, moderate, high, or extra high, and it affects how much the implants project from your chest.

Low-profile implants have a wider base and are less noticeable, so women often choose them for a more natural look; they also work well for women with a wider chest. High-profile implants have a narrower base and offer a fuller and more dramatic look making them a great option for women with a narrower chest. Your plastic surgeon will help you choose a profile that suits your desired outcome and body type.
