Breast implants for tall, broad women

Currently, moderate profile plus implants are great for tall, broad women. This implant will give you great curves both on the outside and middle cleavage part of the breast. Make sure you discuss with your plastic surgeon your aesthetic goals so that you're both on the same page as far as size of the implants. Take some photos (internet or magazine) with you of breasts that you like to give your sugeon a better idea of your goals. Good luck!

In general the taller and more broad you are the larger the implants can be. The moderate profile (Allergan) or moderate plus (Mentor) saline implants are designed to be used for most women. Larger implants are more likely to create better cleavage but this has more to do with the distance between the breasts and the fit of the bra. In addition the size of the breasts prior to implantation also has a lot to do with size.

So when you see a plastic surgeon ask to try on some sizers with a sports bra to get an idea of what you're looking for.

Breast implants in tall woman

A tall woman can achieve as good results as a short woman with regard to breast implants. Without examining you in person, it would be difficult to tell you what to get. The HP implants tend to give more projection and are narrow. The moderate plus tend to give less projection and more "side boob." The moderates give more "side boob" and less projection.

Implants are not generally designed for specific women, or specific breasts, or to give certain looks. Implants come in a wide variety of styles, widths, shapes, and projections. Implants are then combined with the individual anatomy of a patient's breast to produce a particular appearance that is agreeable to a particular patient. One implant implant can produce a certain result in one patient and a completely different result in a different patient. You should go through a detailed analysis with a surgeon to determine what options you have. breast augmentation is an imperfect procedure so a successful result is determined not only by what you want but also by what you can tolerate or accept in imperfections.

Talk to your surgeon. A larger or taller woman will need a larger implant than a smaller person to achieve a larger breast size - but this must be determined in person not on line.

There is more information needed and a plastic surgeon will be the best person to provide you with advice once you have had a history and physical examination. Your height, weight, opposite breast, scars, mastectomy vs lumpectomy, smoking history, need for radiation therapy, etc are all factors that will play an important role in this decision.
