I'm thinking of going with the 339 on silicone implants but tossing the idea of a 371 i'm 5'9, 140lbs...I want to look natural and not big boobs I'm currently a 34a. Is there that much of a difference between the two.
Choosing Implant size
There is a relatively small difference between the sizes of these two implants. It is actually 32cc which is about 1 oz out of your measuring cup in the kitchen. Consider that amount distributed over the entire volume of your breast and I doubt you’d perceive any real difference. Ideally, implant size is chosen according to breast dimensions, skin conditions, patient build etc. But in this case the implant dimensions between these two are also quite similar. You’ll do very well with either of these implants but my personal observation over the past 16 years of doing this procedure is that nearly all women at six months after breast augmentation wish they had chosen a slightly larger implant than what they actually did choose.
339cc v 371 cc
There is not too much difference between these two implants. I consider two factors when selecting implants for my patients:
2.Gel Implant Sizing system
Dimensional planning – The measurements of your chest wall are taken. Also, the breast dimensions including the height, width, and current dimensions of each breast form the basis of dimensional planning. Based on these measurements, the implant size is recommended. This will give you a unique breast implant that is suited for your body frame. Even your fitness levels and other relevant criteria are taken into consideration. It is you who will decide what you are comfortable with.
Gel Implant Sizing system – During the preliminary breast implant consultation, you will be provided with an option to “try on” a variety of implant shapes and sizes. You can also visualize the possible outcomes of your surgery which helps you to get that perfect size to give you the shape that you longed for.
This way your preferences are known and you can then pick a range of implants that will “fit” just right to give a soft natural fuller look. So try these implants in the office to pick which look you like the best.
