I Had Expander Put in Sept 10th Today I Had my Fith Fill. I Am at 500 Ccs. How Many More Fills?

I know you have to overfill to achieve a larger implant. Today we added 75 ccs and I am always uncomfortable a few days after each fill. Surgery they filled 100ccs then the next three were 75 ccs and last week we did 100ccs , today was 75ccs so far i am at 500 ccs. How many more to overfill to achieve a C cup implant? Also is weekly fills not a good idea but more space in between slower is better or doesnt it matter??

Tissue expander final size


your final cup size depends on your height, weight and breast width.  500cc on 100 lb women at 5'3" will give much larger than a C Cup.  However, on a 200 lb woman at 5'3" this size implant could end up as a B.  When it comes to tissue expanders, your final volume is based on your preferences and the volume your tissue can handle safely.  I would discuss this with your plastic surgeon.
