Your concerns and questions regarding breast augmentation are very appropriate to all women undergoing this procedure. I must strongly encourage you to see a board certified/eligible plastic surgeon that is experienced in breast augmentation. For many reasons, this is the very most important step to take. After a thorough medical history and examination, he/she will be able to appropriately advise you.
Your wants and needs, body dimensions, vocation, and outside activities are always considered when choosing a breast implant size. In other words, we always individualize. I will pass on some basic information and facts that you may find helpful.
First of all, the average American woman is 5’ 4’’ and weighs 140 lbs…so, you are of average build. Taking all comers, 95% or more of our patients choose breast implants between 300-450 cc, or the equivalent of 10-15 oz. Keep in mind that a coke can is only 12 oz. So, it really does not take a large volume to give you your desired look.
Taking in consideration your active life style, I would probably downward shift you to a range between 300-400 cc. You stated that you are a B cup. There is no conformity in bra size, but this should place you at or near a full C cup. However, the most important maneuver is to take these implants and place them into you bra. The proper implant size should generate a feel of comfort.
Again, I must strongly encourage you to see a board certified/eligible plastic surgeon that is experienced in breast surgery. I hope you find this helpful!
