Whether you’ve contemplated breast augmentation for a few weeks or many years, you’re likely aware of the many factors involved. Thanks to advances in breast augmentation techniques and technology, you have a whole list of decisions to make regarding the type of implants you want, how you want your breasts to look, and how much volume you want to add to your figure.
In this post, we’ll discuss one of the most vital choices you’ll have to weigh: what implant size is right for you? Here are three of our best tips for choosing your most suitable breast implant size.
Consider How Your Breast Implants Will Affect Your Lifestyle
Lifestyle is always relevant when it comes to cosmetic surgery. One of the most critical factors in selecting your implant size should be how they will impact your lifestyle choices; if you exercise or enjoy a more active lifestyle, for example, you need to ask yourself if the size you want will affect your performance.
On the other hand, if your breast augmentation is to complement a recent weight loss, you might want to consider how likely it is that you’ll remain at your current weight.
Do a Visual Test
There are several ways you can do some at-home visual tests to get an idea of how your ideal size might look on you. Some plastic surgeons even have implant sizers you can use to get a sense of how your body will look from different angles. If you’re just getting started, you can easily search the internet and find several creative ways to get a general feel of what different breast implant sizes can look like.
Get Outside Opinions from People You Trust (Like a Plastic Surgeon!)
Don’t let anyone else’s opinion be the deciding factor in the size you choose. The decision is ultimately up to you. However, if you’re on the fence about going bigger or smaller, it never hurts to get a second opinion from someone you love or trust. We also recommend having several consultations to get a feel for what different surgeons might suggest.
