I am 25 y.o asian, weigh 90 pounds, and am 5f1. I am seeking recommendations on what type of implant you would recommend for my small frame. The photos I've seen of implant goals are of patients with 150-230cc's with moderate or high profile projection. I had one initial consult and the Dr encouraged cc's that were higher, insinuating that a natural look would be a waste of going through plastic surgery. Any advice would be grateful appreciated! Thanks.

Finally, 3D preoperative imaging can be extremely helpful in choosing a style and profile which meets the patients goals and expectations.

Measurements of Your Current Body Contour Would Help Determine Implant Size For A Natural Result
To ensure that the formula works — and to help you visualize the prospective change — you will be given different sizers of breast implants to try on and assess. This ensures that the post-operative results will be as close to your intended results as possible. If trying on a certain size looks or feels unnatural, it’s easy to change before going forward with your procedure. As a result, you may benefit from the smaller sizes you mentioned to achieve a more natural look, however it really relies on a physical examination. This examination would involve taking measurements. Your original body contours (including height, weight, breast width, breast height and the distance that exists between the nipple and breast fold) alongside your desired cup size are assessed.
Size Concerns in Smaller Individual for Breast Augmentation
I always try to guide patients as they are sizing. To give an idea of what is average, the average breast implant placed in the US is 350 ml. Therefore, 150 cc implant would be very small. However, I never have a problem putting in a smaller implant. It is always a technically easier operation.
Small frame and implants
I treat alot of women like you in NYC. While you sound like a good candidate for implants, the only way to properly evaluate you is by seeing you in person and performing an exam and discussing your goals. Without that it is impossible to say what is best.
Small frame and breast implants.
Thanks for sharing your story. It seems you're pretty petite. It also sounds like you didin't have a good consult with the surgeon you saw. It's always a good idea to get at least 3 consultations before having surgery. Next time, be sure you a board certified plastic surgeon. Best wishes, Dr. Aldo.
Natural Looking Breast Implants?
Without a photo of some additional measurements it is not easy to give much useful advice. If you have a chance to try on implants, I find that to be a useful tool in choosing implant size. At your size, the range of implants you seem to prefer will have a visible change. I would think about getting additional consultations until you find someone who seems to be listening to you.
RealSelf has listings of surgeons in your area. You should consider cross referencing the listings from the The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (plasticsurgery dot org). A listing in the ASPS website assures you that your surgeon is not only board certified, but also is a member in good standing of the major plastic surgery organization in the U. S.
Thank you for your question, best wishes.
Small frame Asian patients do well with small implants
For your frame, it would not be unusual to have a narrow breast diameter. The implants that work in this diameter are in the 220-280cc range. I'm in agreement with you that the sizes you mention are probably a good fit for you.
I prefer the moderate plus implants; the high profile implants work if the surgeon is willing to underfill them (but has higher incidence of deflation).
Also, it may be worth considering a saline implant because Asian skin does not hide the larger incision required by silicone implants.
