Implant type and size

These are normal and commonly asked questions. They are issues that are addressed during a consultation. You will need to chose size, pocket location, implant type, and incision placement, just to begin with.

You ask very sensible questions. Plastic Surgeons are Specialists, and this is a normal part of our speciality. There are many factors that will affect your decisions, and it would be unreasonable to expect you to work through these by yourself, without expert guidance.

Plastic Surgeons use measurements, experience, giving you implants to 'try on', and their many years of specialist training to assist you in deciding which way to go.

The best thing you can do is see a Plastic Surgeon. Then you will be better placed to make the decisions about which implant to choose.

I wish you well in your journey.

Normal questions

These are the normal concerns women have when selecting an implant. You really need an in-person consultation to do this properly - realself isn't the right forum. In addition to measurements, trying on the different shapes of implants and seeing photos of other patients with different profiles and noting how that impacted their final shape will be helpful.

Look for a board-certified surgeon with before & after photos that you like.

Hello there

Choice of implant and size of implant are fundamental questions in the breast augmentation process. Please find a board-certified plastic surgeon and discuss your aims and requirements in detail.

Good luck!

It is not possible to comment without photos. Discuss implant size with your Plastic Surgeon .Try on sizers in his office so that you will understand the amount of volume he intends to add.

Find someone with a Vectra 3d camera

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

The best way to visualize how you will look with implants is to find someone with a Vectra 3D camera (I have one and love it).

The camera will take a 3D picture of your breasts and torso. With the software you and your surgeon can then see simulations of any breast implant made by Allergan, Mentor, or Sientra. You actually can see how these implants would look on your frame.

The software works best with someone who has breasts that are not ptotic (droopy) because the camera can see all of the surface of the breast.

Go to sculptmydream.com to find someone who has this technology.

It is not possible to comment on what it may take to change your appearance without knowing what your appearance is. Please resubmit your question with medical quality front and side photos taken by someone else so your arms are resting at your sides.
