190cc Butt Implants Enough for Small-framed Woman?

I am considering having Butt implants. I am a small framed woman 5'3" at 110 lb. I want my results to be noticeable in my clothing but I was told the largest implant he will go with is 190cc.

Will this leave me with a noticed result through my clothing since, I believe this is the smallest implant?

Deciding on the proper implant size and shape can be difficult for patients just as it is when women are deciding on the proper breast implant size.

First of all there is no one perfect implant for every person. The ideal implant depends on the aesthetic goals that each person is trying to achieve from their augmentation. Typically I will take measurements of the buttock and determine what implants will fit your buttock. There are a range of butt implants and profiles (just like breast implants, though not as many).

The implants are a solid silicone implant that comes in round and shaped styles. The round implants are the most common in the U.S. and in my practice. The implants will help shape your butt and hips to give it the projection and round figure that patient hope to achieve. Butt Implants are typically larger then breast implants, as peoples butts are typically larger than their breasts. In my practice the average butt implant range from 400 to 600cc. Please keep in mind that you cannot compare fat transfer and butt implants in terms of volume. Butt implants will give you much more projection and volume per cc than fat will do for your augmentation.

A couple things patients can do is one; have an open discussion with your surgeon about your aesthetic goals. Second is bringing in pictures that have the look that you are trying to achieve, as this will help your surgeon.

Once I know what you are looking for in terms of appearance and what you body can accommodate then we I will give you some implants to choose from and help guide you as to what is best for your aesthetic goals.

Discuss your butt augmentation procedure with a board certified plastic surgeon that performs a high volume of butt augmentations.

You can probably go a bit higher (in th emid 200's), but I do see the concern by your plastic surgeon.  Since he has seen you, he would have a better judgement.

Butt implants may be a good option for small framed women

if done properly, butt implants are an excellent technique for butt contouring and augmentation. This is especially popular in Finland or small framed patients who do not have enough fat for a successful Brazilian Butt Lift. However, this is not a straightforward plastic surgery procedure.Your best bet is to work with a board certified plastic surgeon who has a great deal of experience in butt augmentation and working with butt implants. Also keep in mind that the recovery process after a butt implant surgery is a significant one. In our practice we recommend that our patients not lie on their buttocks or be in a seated position for at least 2 weeks after their surgery.

I think a petit lady like you will notice the difference using a ROUND BUTTOCK IMPLANT 190 cc. You will see the difference.

The size of the implant used is determined by the measurement of the buttock and the implant, where you want the most of the filling to be. On these basis the implant is chosen. What is the plane of placement of the implant also determines the size used. Subcutaneous, Subfascial or Submuscular plane.
