I am 5ft,100lbs,size 32A.I went to consultations. The female Dr told me told get Moderate Plus 300cc or 325 cc to get to full Ccup yet still look natural. The male Dr told me to have High Profile 250 or 275cc, if try to push, could be 300 cc because of my petite size and because he think moderate pluss will spread to the side of my breast. Please give me some advice, thanks

Questions on appropriate implant size and style
An exact size can't be recommended for you through internet communications. However, given your dimensions that you provided as well as the helpful photos, it is clear that a high profile implant would serve you best. However, realize that there is a tradeoff and that you won't truly have a "natural look" (which is true to some extent in breast augmentation in many women, depending on what they are starting with). A moderate plus profile implant will be too wide for in the sizes that you mentioned. It can look more natural but at far smaller sizes.
For best results, stick with silicone implants.
Picking the right implant for you
I consider two factors when selecting implants for my patients: 1.Dimensional planning 2.Gel Implant Sizing system Dimensional planning – The measurements of your chest wall are taken. Also, the breast dimensions including the height, width, and current dimensions of each breast form the basis of dimensional planning. Based on these measurements, the implant size is recommended. This will give you a unique breast implant that is suited for your body frame. Even your fitness levels and other relevant criteria are taken into consideration. It is you who will decide what you are comfortable with. Gel Implant Sizing system – During the preliminary breast implant consultation, you will be provided with an option to “try on” a variety of implant shapes and sizes. You can also visualize the possible outcomes of your surgery which helps you to get that perfect size to give you the shape that you longed for. This way your preferences are known and you can then pick a range of implants that will “fit” just right to give a soft natural fuller look. So try these implants in the office to pick which look you like the best. Best of luck Dr. Basu
Breast augmentation for petite frame
Because you have such a small frame, 300cc-350cc high profile implants sound about right for you. I would also suggest you request sub muscular placement, as this will give you a more natural look and decrease your chances of developing capsular contractures. Pls. be aware that given your small frame, a surgeon can only place as big an implant as your tissues will allow, so size can never be guaranteed. Having said this, 300cc-350cc implants should not pose a problem. Best wishes, Dr. H

Selecting the right implant size
Thanks for sharing your photos. Selecting an implant size is dependent on patients' anatomy (height, weight, chest width, chest height) as well as patients' wishes. Although it is hard to give you a recommendation without examining you, based on your current height, weight, and bra size, I would recommend high profile 300-350cc. You should try some sizers and talk with your plastic surgeon. Please remember that implant cc volume does not correlate with cup sizes. Also, try to look at pre and postop photos that reflect your body size and desired look.
32A to Full C Cup- How many CCs?
Thanks for the posted series of photos. In my opinion based solely upon the photos I would recommend at least a 350 to 400 cc HP implant.
the decision of high profile or mod profile is based on the width of your breast and the desired size you want to go to. if you base width is 12 cm for example, you should stay close to that diameter. high profile implants are made for narrow base diameter women who want to go larger. look on line for photos of women that start with your size breasts, and you like the results. most photos show size and type implant used, so that should help you.
Unfortunately Bra Sizes Aren't Standardized
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, bra sizes are not standardized, and a "full C cup" can mean a lot of different things. I bring a range of sizes of implants into the operating room, usually three different sets, and during surgery, I make the final decision of implant size, keeping in mind the patient's preferences. If I have a patient with similar preferences as yours, I would likely select the larger implant as long as the result doesn't look "unnatural", which is ultimately a slightly subjective judgement I make from experience in the operation room. Most of my patients want 250cc - 350cc implants. Not all surgeons bring in three sets of implants, but if your surgeon is willing to, then I would suggest bringing 275cc, 300cc, and 325cc.
Breast Implant Size
The size of the implants are based on a combination of a patient's goals and objectives and her anatomy. In order to provide a natural looking augmentation, the surgeon needs to evaluate many factors including soft tissue coverage, skin laxity, chest wall width, breast imprint width, the shape of the breasts and relative level of constriction to ensure that the breast implants are appropriate for your body.
