There are many things that needs to be taken in consideration when the surgeon and the patient decides what size implant is ideal for s specific patient. The weight and height is not the only factors. There are many issues to be considered. The shape and size of the present breast. The desire of the patient of what she wants to look like, fake or natural and the consequences of the decision. The measurement of the breast on the chest wall, the position of the breast on the chest wall, sternal notch to nipple, nipple to infra-mammary line, base width of the breast, height of the breast, amount of native breast tissue, chest circumference, waist and hips measurements. These measurements and thorough discussion with the patient will make the decision for the size of the breast implant. This is unique to every patient. This is a science and not a guess work. That is why the incidence of resurgery after breast augmentation is high. Those of you who follow Realself, can see a significant increase in question about explantation in the first 4-8 weeks of surgery. You can not choose a size implant because someone on the net advises a certain size without seeing and examining the patient or because (my girlfriend) had this or that size implant. Ladies this is your body you are talking about and it is serious decision and should not be taken lightly.

I am 5'4 and weigh 125 lbs and am in excellent physical shape. My measurements are currently 34, 27, 38. I am a 34A now but am thinking of becoming a full C. Do you think that would look natural with the rest of my frame?

Hi makeupgirlie, I am not a doctor but for my experience I can see that maybe a size implant for you will be a 290cc since you want a full C and a natural look for that would be the gel implants. Saline water implants make a breast look more fake to my personal opinion. I hope this helps you.

A year ago, I had a double mastectomy due to breast cancer. I am now in the reconstruction phase. The tissue expanders are in and I just had my first fill. I just don't know how big I should go. I'm 6' and around 167 pounds with broad shoulders. I carry my weight in my butt & theighs and not as much in my chest. Before cancer, I was around a B cup. I want to look nice without looking top-heavy. What size should I get?

Had my revision on 10-28. I love my new implants. Got 600 mod + silicone and they are so much better for me than my 350 saline. I was big c before and big d now. I am 5'4 117 lbs. They are completely natural on my frame and I can completely hide them or show them off. I was really worried they would be too big and they are not at all!!

Help!!!! I just had my first consultation and am so confused about how many cc's I need to obtain my desired small d cup size. I am a small girl 5 ft 2 inches and weight 112 pounds. Help please anyone!

Hello, I am just a little bigger than you an have had 350 mod saline and now have 600 mod + silicone. The 350 gave me a c cup but I had really stretched skin from pregnancy and they didn't seem full and round. Replaced with 600 silicone, was so scared they would be huge but I love them. 34dd now but they can easily be hidden. They really look and feel so much better. Hope this helps. I think if you got anywhere between 450 and 600 you would be happy. Hope you can figure it out and not have to do it twice like me!

I'm 5'6" and around 154lbs. I had a breast Augmentation done last year. I did a 450cc round moderate plus silicone gel. I was a B-cup and now I'm a full C-cup to a small D. I really love how they look natural, but it not the size I'm looking for. I want to go to a 600cc round high profile silicone gel. Is that to big? My doctor says I should be a small DD when all said and done.

Hello, just saw your post about your breast augmentation, I am similar stats and considering the same size. Sounds huge, my pa thinks it will be good. Was hoping to get an update on how yours are doing and if you are happy? Any complications? Would love an update! Thanks

I did an update check it out! From a 34b I went to a 34D,but am still swollen.Am mot going to lie to u but I think I did a good decision .300cc are perfect. My main concern was because of my height. Eventually my pa said after swollen goes away iam going to end up in a full C. AWAKE don't be nervous everything will be just fine.

Thanks, I have 350 that I am replacing. They are c's for me. They started much larger but with time and weight loss they have shrunk. I also am having a pocket revision so I am switching to silicone. Just trying to figure size. My 350 are hardly noticeable and my ps recommends 600 for full d or dd. Just really concerned they will be toooooo big! Would love to hear from someone about 5'4 125 lbs with larger than 500 and how they have settled after a year or so?

i'm almost 5'3 about 125lbs i work out at the gym alot still have a small amount of fat to loose vary minamal. i'm 31 yrs old have two kids. i just got ba i went 570 cc on right and 640 cc on left. it's only been founr days. you'd think wow that sounds huge! but it's really not in fact i feel a little sad it's smaller than i'd like. it's extremely painful and if it doesn't settle out to a d, hoping for a small dd i'd be angry. i don't want to go through it again considering how painful it was and if the doctor was to lie to me and put a smaller amount of ccs boym i'd be real angry. it looks good if only it could be just a little bit bigger. to answer your questions. 600 cc and up for my size is not even too big.

i am 5'11" and wiegh 175. I am of large build not heavy just large athletic build. I am having breast augmentation in 1 month and still contemplating size. I have wanted to do this for 10 years. The #1 complaint I here from women is they wish they would have gone bigger. Regardless because of my hieght and build surgeon is recomending 650cc high profile and basically anything lower they say will not be poportinate to my hieght and build. Poportiante being my goal. Im having i hard time finding pics that have this size with my hieght/build. help!

What do you think will give me fullness and a nice projection? I dont want big wide pancake shape. Thanks!

I am 5'6 125lbs. Will 375cc high profile be a full c cup? My left breast is an a cup. My right is a b cup. Had 2 children want to achieve a full c-cup. Is 375cc high profile silicone too big?
