Breast Augmentation Implant Size
Glendale, Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, Mesa, Surprise, & Peoria, AZ
Dr. Paul Angelchik, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, provides a full range of cosmetic surgery services for women who want breast enhancement in the Phoenix, Glendale, and Scottsdale area. If you are interested in a breast augmentation in the Phoenix area, you'll want to know how he chooses the best size implant.
While choosing the size of your augmentation is one of the hardest decisions you'll make, you can place your confidence in Dr. Angelchik, who has helped hundreds of women make this decision. He considers the image you want, your body size and shape, will measure your specific dimensions, and assess the quality of your skin and tissue. These measurements and tissue characteristics also indicate whether submuscular,dual plane, or subglandular placement will produce your best results.
If you don't have photos of your ideal breast size, projection, and shape, you will have an opportunity to look through Dr. Angelchik's library of before and after photos of breast augmentation surgeries he has performed. Having performed these specific surgeries, he can relate those outcomes to your exam results, and let you know how likely your selections are to produce the results you envision.
Dr. Angelchik will help you determine the best choices for the shape of your implant, and how to choose between silicone and saline implants. While not obvious, there are specific reasons for choosing one over another, both in shape and fill content. Working with your measurements, your desired appearance, and how implant structure and design function together, Dr. Angelchik will simplify this decision for you.
You'll be asked to do some homework to get the "feel" of your anticipated size and shape. Purchase a bra that has a cup size you think is the best size for you, and one that is not made of a stretch fabric. Dr. Angelchik has implant sizers for you to use. Alternatively, you can use rice or oatmeal filled knee-highs, tissue, or fabric to fill out the cups. Wearing this bra, try different clothes, with a variety of fabric weights and fits (tighter vs. looser.) You're looking for a breast size and shape that will look right for you on all occasions, so be ready to try a different bra cup size or adjust the amount of padding until you find the look you like best. You can convert volumes from a standard cup measure to cc's using a metric conversion chart. Show your doctor how you look and how many cc's gave you that look.
Remember that with current styles leaning toward a more proportional than buxom figure, choosing the smallest implant that gives you an appealing and satisfactory result is the best choice. Not only will you look good, but also, smaller implants correlate, statistically, with fewer complications.
