A study reported in a recent issue (March/April 2009) of Aesthetic Surgery Journal has found that more than 80 percent of breast augmentation patients choose a size C-cup implant (or 300 to 400cc) size. The study surveyed only those breast augmentation surgeries that were done for only cosmetic purposes.
However, while C-cup may be a much-desired size for many women, there are a number of factors that should be considered when a patient is deciding on the right size breast implant for her unique look:
• The overall image you want to portray
• Whether or not you’d like your breasts to look as natural as possible
• Your current measurements and body dimensions
• The quality of your skin and breast tissue
A good way to start your search for the look you want is to find photos of what you think your ideal breast size should be. Most experienced cosmetic surgeons have a complete library of breast augmentation photos for you to review, as well.
Keep in mind that, typically, finding the smallest implant that provides the look you want is recommended.
