Is 615cc a Big Implant?

Implant Selection Process
Larger implants increase the risk of complications such as implant malposition, which can be very difficult to correct longterm. In order to make an accurate size recommendation, I would need to assess your chest wall and breast mound measurements and characteristics. Unfortunately, there is not a general rule of thumb or objective criteria to implant selection.
Your plastic surgeon will perform several measurements of your chest wall and breast anatomy and determine a range of implants that both fit your chest wall and reach your desired goals.
The next step is to try on this range of implants in the office with your doctor. The key to this success is showing your surgeon the body proportion you desire with a bra sizer and allowing your surgeon to guide you to the right implant. It will be much easier to communicate in implant cc's than cup size when determining the appropriate implant for you.
I wish you a safe recovery and fantastic result.

615 cc Implant -- How Much Bigger Will I Be?
The average breast implant placed in the US is 350 cc. So 615 cc is a very big implant. This may change bra size by 3 cup sizes.
An implant of this size you typically add about 3 cup sizes to where you started. So, if you are a C cup, I'd expect a large DD or DDD with this implant.
Have you tried a 615 cc sizer on in a sports bra and t-shirt? Do you like the look? It will tend to look a little "fake" for most average size women, and would be too large for many, but not all, of my patients.

Is 615cc Breast Implant Bog?
The concept of a big implant and big breasts is, of course, relative but a 615cc implant is on the bigger range just using your height and weight numbers. The real question is whether what you want your breasts to look like and where they are now and are how far apart that is in volume. (ccs) There must be a reason you asked about 615cc size so I would assume you have done some sizing and come up with that number. Remember that what you care about is how they look, not what number or cup size your breasts are. But have no doubt that a 615cc implant will make most women look big.
the volume of the implant is not as significant as the shape. The high profile implants have a smaller diameter but greater projection and thus hold more volume. Generally speaking a 615cc implant is a large implant
615CC Is Definitely A Big Implant
A 615cc implant is very large regardless of a patient's pre-op situation. The only time that I would use an implant which is this large would be for a breast reconstruction following mastectomy. With this size implant, you will have an extreme "fake look".
Is the 615 mL implant too big?
As you have just been told, the size is relative to so many other factors. Taken alone, 615 mL is a large implant. For many, this is too big. In your case, it may work. You need an in-person consultation with a reputable, experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who can go over all of the advantages & disadvantages of the size you are considering. Don't forget to factor potential side effects that may occur in the coming 30-60 years of life ahead of you. This discussion can take well over an hour and may involve several visits and/or a second or even third opinions. Take your time. Do you homework. Write down and ask the million questions that you have. You're not going to find the answers you need online. Go face to face with your surgeon so that you can make a choice that you can live with. After all, this is your decision to make. Best of luck to you.
615 cc A Big Implant? It Depends…
Thank you for the question.
A 615 mL breast implant may be a too “big implant” for one patient but be an appropriate implant for another. Much will depend on the specific patient's body type/proportions as well as their goals.
The best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering breast augmentation surgery is:
1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you're looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.
2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals. In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or “want them big” etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful. Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on him who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate.
3. Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly, allow your plastic surgeon to use his/her years of experience/judgment to choose the breast implant size/profile that will best meet your goals. Again, in my practice, this decision is usually made during surgery.
I hope this helps.
