Breast implant sizing

Breast Implant sizing

I think a 400 cc will make you larger than you are hoping for. I think that moderate plus profile is a good choice also. Saline gives a less natural look than silicone because you can see or feel rippling on the sides or bottom of the breast.

But given your amount of breast tissue, this will be less likely for you. Silicone feels more natural but is more expensive. (K. Roxanne Grawe, MD, Columbus Plastic Surgeon)

Given your height and present cup size, I would definitely stay in the 300 – 350 range to get a full C/ small D.

Also, I believe that the Mentor Moderate Plus is a better choice as you would benefit from the additional projection without the base width (especially in the vertical direction!).

Finally, and its difficult to tell from the photographs, but you might benefit from an areolar repositioning as your areola are large relative to your breasts and you do appear to have some degree of sagging. Best to re-discuss your concerns with your PS prior to the procedure date. (Eric Sadeh, MD, Manhattan Plastic Surgeon)

Implant Size Selection

I agree that a moderate profile implant is a good choice. However, a 400cc implant is most likely going to give you more volume than you expect. For someone in your situation, I would most often use a 300cc implant. It is important for you to discuss your expectations with your surgeon. (Steven L. Ringler, MD, FACS, Grand Rapids Plastic Surgeon)

I have always advised patients to try on implants before surgery to determine the size you want. This is a good way to choose.With 15cm width, you have plenty of options and a moderate profile should work well for you. (Thomas A. Narsete, MD, Greenwood Village Plastic Surgeon)

I think you need to speak with your plastic surgeon again if you are having any concerns. You need to make sure you are clear in your questions when talking to him or her. Based on rough estimates, the size implants your are discussing will likely make you larger than you want.

Also, you have a size difference between the two breasts and you do appear to have some slight sag to your breasts. You may benefit from a breast lift as well. (Naveen Setty, MD, San Diego Plastic Surgeon)

If you are scheduled, these issues should be already resolved with your surgeon. My choice for you would be low height moderate or full profile prostheses to match your breasts and body with a secondary goal of providing enough volume to lift breasts and nipple areola complex sufficiently to avoid formal mastopexy (breast lift). My preference is to focus on beauty and proportionality rather than cup size. If you want saline, Allergan LF363. If you choose gel, Sientra elliptical or Allergan highly cohesive gel, Style 410. If you have lift, areolae may be reduced along with this.  (Steve Laverson, MD, Savannah Plastic Surgeon)

It appears from your photos that you have enough sagging to almost need an uplift. Remember that the more weight you add to a breast, or anything for that matter, the more sagging you will have. Your best bet is to visit your PS and try on sizers in a bra. Then on a T-shirt. The right size for you is what you like with the sizers.

Also your plastic surgeon should have input to recommend the best size to achieve your goals. Whether you have a Moderate Plus or High Profile implant is determined by your breast width. Your plastic surgeon will help you with this as well. One other point is that height hides breast size. On the other hand, at 4 ft 11 in. you may find that 400 cc in addition to your present size can make you look over-weight. These are things oyu must discuss with your PS. (E. Ronald Finger, MD, Dubai Plastic Surgeon)

Looking at the photos you seem to be a C cup and not a B cup and putting an implant of 400 cc may take you to very full D cup or even DD cup. In general every 200 cc takes you one size up. Surely you should discuss this with your surgeon now and not at the last movement on the day of surgery when sometimes the desired smaller implant size may not be on their shelf.

About having a cleavage mention this to your PS so that he creates a good pocket medially and less on the outer side. Wish you good luck. (Ashok Govila, FRCS, MCh, MS, Naples Plastic Surgeon)
