Most women who are interested in breast augmentation want a natural look and an aesthetic balance of their body. Choosing the right implant shape and size is essential.
Your surgeon will show you different types of breast implants and explain surgical techniques. Together, you can weigh the pros and cons and choose the best breast implants for your needs. During the consultation, speak openly with your surgeon and communicate your personal wishes and goals for the procedure. This is the only way to create realistic expectations.
Your body is unique. When choosing an implant, it is important to consider your individual needs and characteristics. Take your surgeon's opinion seriously. A good surgeon has the know-how and experience to recommend the breast implants best suited for you: volume and size should match your physique, so the implants are comfortable over time.
When it comes to the ideal volume, you should not think in cup sizes. Every bra manufacturer has different standards. Instead, millimetres are an accurate unit that you and your surgeon can use to determine the size for your breast implants.
A practice test can also help: There are external implants that you can place in a bra, so you can see which shape and size provides an aesthetic look. Wear clothes that you know and like well - the difference becomes apparent very quickly. Some surgeons use 3D visualizing tools to help you review the possible outcome.
There are many different implants available, because every woman is unique, and each body is different. With so many available options, you and your surgeon can find the implant for you.
