Breast implant sizing
Although there are general recommendations on matching a patient's anatomic breast dimensions with the "appropriate" breast implant size, I find it most suiting to have the patient try on actual implants in my office in front of myself and a mirror. This way the patient can see what the various sizes look like on and thus essentially choose the size they like best, regardless of "cup size". In the case where the patient selects a size unreasonably too small or large I will then advise them accordingly. Glad to help.
