Breast Implant Sizing
Breast Implant Sizing
Breast augmentation is the most common cosmetic surgery performed in the United States. Each procedure, however, differs depending on the individual receiving implants. At Newport Beach Plastic Surgery, we'll take time to select the right implant size for you.
While the science of breast augmentation has been standardized, the location of the incisions, the style, size, and shape of the implants are fully customized for each patient depending on their body size and unique wishes. Though most women come to our offices having made up their minds about getting implants, most need help deciding what size implants they want.
With tabloid news being a dominant factor in our culture, many women have the notion that "bigger is better." Nothing could be further from the truth. Despite its commonality, breast augmentations are life-altering procedures. Dr. Ambe takes the necessary time to meet with each patient and make sure they are headed in the right direction.
When you come into our office, we'll take precise measurements of your breasts, looking for any inconsistencies or asymmetry. We'll ask you how large you want your breasts to be and determine the reasoning behind your decision. You will be supplied with pictures of women who have undergone a similar procedure to see if you like the results. Because every size implant carries different attendant issues, we'll explain the changes in lifestyle you're likely to experience after your surgery is completed. Our ultimate goal is to satisfy your desires.
Even if you are looking to alter the size and shape of your breasts, breast enlargement may not be the procedure for you. Dr. Ambe will keep all options on the table, including a breast lift, which is less invasive and can make many of the same alterations as a breast augmentation. Our staff will fully explain the advantages and disadvantages of each cup size, the economic investment any augmentation requires, and the estimated recovery time.
