The weight of 400 cc implants are converteg in to kilograms whichis the same 400 gms or 0.4 kgs which then amounts to about 1lb or so.

The added body weight of 400 cc breast implant augmentation surgery

Every 1000 cc of water equala 2.2 pounds. Doing the math this means that 400 cc equals slighlty less than 14 ounces (silicone weighs less than water) or .875 pounds. Multiply that by two and it equals 1 and 3/4 pounds or 28 ounces,

Really, not that much.

Breast implants generally do not contribute significantly to weight increases. For example, a 400cc silicone breast implant weighs 424gm or 15 ounces (roughly two pounds for a pair). Usually if you are seeing any increase in your body weight, it should be temporary and related to water retention.

Hope this helps.

Best of luck.
