Choosing the size of your new breast implants is an exciting part of the breast augmentation process but it can also be slightly stressful. That said, this important decision should not be made in haste. Work with your plastic surgeon to help figure out the right breast implant size to fit your body, lifestyle and goals. Keep these tips for picking out breast implants in mind when you go to your sizing appointment.
1. Use 3D Imaging
Choosing breast implant size is a very personal thing. What looks great on one person’s body might be totally wrong on someone else.
One of the simplest ways to take the guesswork out of picking the perfect breast implant size is to work with a plastic surgeon who offers 3D imaging. This innovative visualization technology lets you “try on” different breast implant shapes, types, profiles and volumes so you can have a good idea of how your final results will look.
2. Take a Variety of Outfits
Once you’ve moved on to physical sizers, try them on under your clothing as well as in a bra. It’s important to know what a particular size of implant would look like in several different wardrobe choices. Pick some professional pieces you might wear to work or to an interview. Bring something casual, something you would wear on a date, and something formal. You may also want to bring a sexy outfit or bathing suit. Remember to consider proportion along with size as you try out implant choices.
3. Bring a Friend Along
A good friend can be really helpful at a breast augmentation consultation. Choose someone who knows you well and will give you honest feedback. The decision is ultimately yours, but a trusted confidante can bring a valuable second perspective.
