Choosing your Breast Implant Size

Serving Patients in Jacksonville, Florida

The selection of your breast implant size is a decision that involves a number of factors and should be an open discussion between you and your plastic surgeon. At Florida Plastic Surgery Group, during your personalized consultation, you will be given the opportunity to try on several implants to help determine which size is appropriate for you. Some of the factors that determine what size implant you should choose include the following:

Jacksonville Breast Implants
  • Size of your Existing Breast Gland – If you have a Size B or C breast a smaller implant would be needed to achieve a size D breast than if you have a size A breast pre-operatively
  • Breast Width – most plastic surgeons agree that placement of a breast implant larger than your current breast width results in a higher rate of revisions and complications
  • Your Desired Goal – Not all plastic surgeons agree, but our doctors involve every patient in the process of choosing their size. They feel patient input is important to the overall success and satisfaction of breast augmentation surgery.
  • Amount of Ptosis or Sagging – If you have had children or have loose skin, placement of a larger implant can prevent the need for a breast lift operation

When choosing your implant size there are several things you should remember:

  • 1. After surgery many women wish they had larger implants placed and some undergo revision surgery to have larger implants placed.
  • 2. The larger the implant, the higher the rate of complications in both the long and short-term
  • 3. Larger implants create more pressure on the native breast tissue and can, therefore, hasten the need for revision surgery
