Breast Implant Size
The size of the implants are based on a combination of a patient's goals and objectives and her anatomy. In order to provide a natural looking augmentation, the surgeon needs to evaluate many factors including soft tissue coverage, skin laxity, chest wall width, breast imprint width, the shape of the breasts and relative level of constriction to ensure that the breast implants are appropriate for your body. Consult in person with 3 experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons to understand your options.
Is 400cc right for you?
1. Dimensional planning
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. However, there are some limitations of what size we can recommend. For instance, some implants may just be too big for a narrow chest wall. Your surgeon can review this with you during the consultation.
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. Hope this helps.
Implant Selection Process
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.

Implant size to acheive goals
There are several variables in determining implant size. When recommending implant size for my patients, I consider the followings: 1) patients' anatomy (height, weight, chest width, chest height, amount of breast tissue) and 2) patients' desired look/goal. Without knowing your chest measurement and breast tissue amount, I cannot give you any recommendation. You should visit with board-certified plastic surgeon who will examine you. Try implant sizers to get a rough estimate of the size you may want. As you know, bra/cup size will vary depending on the brand. Good luck with you.

Best Breast Implant Size/ Profile for Me?
Although potentially useful to some degree, online “consultations” cannot be as precise as necessary.Ultimately, careful communication of your goals, careful measurements (dimensional planning), careful selection of appropriate breast implants and skillful execution of the procedure will be important steps in achieving your goals.
Generally speaking, 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 "full B, small C cup” 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 (and the attached link) help.
Breast implant size
Cup size can be somewhat subjective. I think 400 cc implants are more likely to make you a large C cup, but might be a good size for you if you want to be that large. Good luck!
400 cc implants to a "B" cup???
I think that a 400 cc implant will be at least a "C" if not a "D" in most cases. An exam in person will allow for a mroe precise determination of what you can achieve.
Seems a bit large...
While it is impossible for any surgeon to say which implant is best for a patient without an exam, I would tend to agree that a 400cc implant might make you larger than a small C. Remember, we all have different ideas about what a particular cup size looks like. I would suggest doing some imaging (Vectra 3D, for exampleh. It helps in communicating your goals to your surgeon and you can see what a specific implant will look like on your body.
That is too much!
Ok, I know Americans like them big.....
But unless you want everybody to see a mile away you had a breast augmentation, don't do that.
From my (European) perspective a cup size is between 120 and 180 cc depending on the frame of the patient, and from what i can calculate you are rather small. I wouldn't know how to put such a large implant in and make it look natural, but like i said average expectations are less here.
I agree with one of the colleagues and visit a certified plastic surgeon (or two of them) and try some sizers to see what you are comfortable with. That will give you a better clue then asking us over the Internet.
