I had a breast reduction 8 years ago. I am now maybe a full B or small C. I am having implants put in and choosen 350. Worried that what I have selected will make me a big again. Been there, done that, just want to look nice, full and perky. Is 350 too big? My doctor says it will be a mid C to big C. Don't want anywhere near a D. HELP

I too had a breast reduction, but 20 years ago, was a full B when I decided on first round of saline 225 imlants 3 yrs ago. Hated them, was a D+. Downsized to 158 silicone two years ago and still was a D. Still hated them and was very unhappy. Had implants removed two weeks ago by a different PS from the first two BA surgeries and finally am at peace. I regret ever going through the whole ordeal. My understanding is a cup size is 150-200 cc's. Had my original PS told me that, I never would have gotten implants to begin with. Think carefully is my advice.

Here's what some doctors have to say about choosing your implant size. A couple things to keep in mind: the implants look smaller in your body than they do in a sports bra sitting on your chest. Smaller implants generally age better. And a lot depends on your frame (ie your height and weight).These are just some things I've read here on RealSelf in my travels as the Breast Aug moderator.

The process of deciding what size has really been tough. I am 45 years old, 5'4 and weigh 125. At my age just want some fullness and lift of what I have already.
