Implant Size and Cup Size
One of the major aspects of your breast implant evaluation will be to determine the right breast implant size to achieve the cup size that you desire. Choosing your breast implant size isn’t as simple as picking a “C-size” cup implant to achieve a “C” cup breast size. Choosing the right implant for a breast augmentation requires the expertise of an experienced plastic surgeon.
Because many measurements, health and lifestyle factors are evaluated to determine the ideal implant and cup size for you, you’ll be glad to know that one of the most skilled and qualified plastic surgeons, Dr. Paul Angelchik has several locations in Arizona.
He will show you actual pictures to get an idea of your desired results, but bear in mind that if your body shape differs from the one in the photo, the results will not look the same on you.
Several methods along the lines of the “rice test” have been used to get an idea of the desired implant size. These techniques involve padding your bra with baggies or stockings filled with rice, couscous, or another grain.
The more accurate implant sizers are designed to give you a better idea of what your actual implant will look like. You can wear these for several days, trying different sizes or shapes to see how they look under your clothing, and how each particular contour might feel.
Please contact Dr. Angelchik to schedule a consultation and to learn how to choose the right breast size for you.
