Will adding 75cc's to a 250cc implant make a noticeable difference in size?
4 months ago
I had my breast augmentation with a lift done 15 days ago and I'm very unhappy with the size. My doctor and I agreed on a 350-375 implant and when I came out of surgery I was only a 250. I'm 5' 6" and weigh 125 pounds. I was a size 36 c before surgery and I am still in the same size. My doctor said we could add 75 more cc to the same implant. Will that make a noticeable difference? Is it recommended to add to the same implant? Please help!!!!!!

This is a complaint I hear much too often. There good sizing systems which should make unexpected volume changes rare. I doubt adding 75 mL is going to be worth going through another operation.
I'm sorry for your dilemma. Adding just 75 mL to an existing implant will not be a significant difference that one can readily see. I suggest for significant difference you need at least 150 mL
A jump in cup size is at least 175cc so adding 75cc is not a lot of volume. You are also likely still somewhat swollen if your surgery was only 15 days ago so you may look even smaller one that settles out over time.
Thanks for your question and post. Adding 75cc will increase your cup size by about 1/3. This is only an estimate.
