Increasing implant size using local anesthesia

I would suggest that you need to increase the implant size by a minimum of 50 cc to appreciate any significant difference. Using local anesthesia is completely reasonable, but you will need to be completely prepped and draped in the same fashion as your first surgery to minimize the risk of contamination. The surgery should still be performed in an accredited operating facility.

Going up 50 or 25 cc under local?

I doubt that 25 cc would make a noticeable difference. 50 cc might be a very modest size change, maybe about halfway between current size and previous size with the 340 cc implants.

I have no issue with local anesthesia. What is meant by "in the office" is unclear. Usual standard would be an office operating room, set up to the same standards as an outpatient surgicenter OR.

All the best.

Baltimore breast implant size for an augmentation

I would recommend bringing in photos of breasts that you like to your plastic surgeon to see if the size implants that you're getting are right for you.

I typically tell people to go up by 100cc for a really noticeable change. I have not heard of anyone changing inplants in an office setting your PS must have an OR in their office. If you didnt like 340 and dont like 250 seems naturall 300 would be ideall
