What is a CC
During your consultation for breast augmentation, try on different sizers (for example 250 ccs or 350 ccs) in order to get a feel for how many ccs are needed to get you the result you desire.
It is the way to measure volume. I hope this helps.
A cubic centimeter (cc) is a metric measure of volume. There are just under 29 cc in a fluid ounce (English measure), so for example, an eight ounce glass of milk has 236 cc.
There are no fixed definitions of cup size, so trying to equate it to cc's is not at all useful. In these Realself pages I read surgeons suggesting that a cup size increase can require from 100 to 250 cc of implant size. None of this is really completely predictable.
Better than quoting cup size as a goal is to try on implants and your surgeon can use that info to choose an appropriate size to insert.
All the best. .

Breast Implant CCs
Women that have A/B cup sizes that want to be full C cups will require ~ 350ccs of a breast implant in the submuscular postion. Larger women may need larger implants and women post childbearing (weight gain and weight loss) may need larger implants.
A good understanding of your desires as well a an examination is very important to the selection of the right implant.
