Women undergoing breast augmentation are often very concerned about the size of their breast implants. Nowadays, women are opting for more natural-looking breast augmentation results, instead of the fake look that was once very popular. But what are the different breast implant sizes, and how can you decide which is the right one for you.
What are the different types of breast implant sizes?
Breast implants are available in a wide range of sizes, and they are sized by volume. It’s possible to get a conservative 100cc breast implant, or an exaggerated 800cc implant, where ‘cc’ denotes cubic centimeters. However, the most popular breast implant sizes range from 350cc to 400cc. Implant sizes increase in increments of 10cc to 20cc.
How to choose the right breast implant size
Choosing your ideal breast implant size, is probably one of the most difficult decisions you will have to make about breast augmentation surgery. The size implant you choose, will depend on factors such as the aesthetic results you desire, your body type, and current breast size.
Vectra 3D imaging
When it comes to choosing the right breast implant size, help is available in the form of technology such as the Vectra 3D imaging system. The Vectra 3D takes a 3D model of the patient’s body, and the surgeon can then manipulate the image, to show the patient what they would look like with implants of various sizes. These virtual images are very helpful in deciding on the best implant size.
