800cc will look similar whether it be expanders or implants. Similar but not the same.

Yes, it should be similar to the size of the expanders but willbe gentler and not so harsh around the edges as the expanders are.  Of note, 800mL is the largest silicone gel breast implant that is available in the United States. Good Luck!

Tissue expander exchange to implants

An implant can be used to match the desired volume based upon your expander shape and volume.  This is something that should be discussed in person during evaluation.
