Implant Selection

It is impossible to predict your outcome without measurements and an exam. It is much better to accurately discuss implant volume and projection with an in office exam and detailed measurements.

In order to make an accurate size recommendation, I would need to assess your chest wall and breast mound measurements/characteristics. I use these measurements to help me during the sizing process to guide you to a safe result for your chest wall and just as important, one that meets your end desires.

The next step is to try on this range of implants in the office with your doctor. The key to this success is showing your surgeon the body proportion you desire with a bra sizer and allowing your surgeon to guide you to the right implant. It will be much easier to communicate in implant cc's than cup size when determining the appropriate implant for you during the sizing process.

In addition, review of photos and use of rice bags can be very helpful to the patient and surgeon in achieving a safe and happy result. Close intereaction and involvement from your surgeon during this process can help alleviate the anxiety and fears of choosing the right size.

I wish you a safe recovery and fantastic result.

What size will I be approx if I get 325cc implants?

Thank you for the question. There is no accurate correlation between size of breast implant and cup size achieved.

Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering  breast augmentation surgery ( regarding breast implant size/profile selection) is:

1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully.  Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you're looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.

2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals  with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining  breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals. 

In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. I have found that the use of words such as  “natural” or "C or D cup”  etc means different things to different people  

 Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on him who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup  size may also be inaccurate.

 The use of computer imaging technology may also be very helpful during this communication process.

3.  Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly,  allow your plastic surgeon to use his/her years of experience/judgment to choose the breast implant size/profile that will best meet your goals.  Again, in my practice, this decision is usually made during surgery. I generally select appropriate breast implant size/profile after the use of temporary intraoperative sizers and viewing the patient's chest in the upright and supine positions. Given that your surgery is coming up in the near future, I would suggest that you spend additional time with your plastic  surgeon  communicating your goals. Make sure that you feel  Comfortable that you and he/we are on the same page prior to proceeding.

I hope this (and the attached link) helps.

What size will I be with 325cc implants?

Hi. In general one cup size is about 200cc (this amount depends on your chest width/height and other measurements), so I would think that if you are a small E cup you will probably be a F cup. As you know bra manufacturers vary enormously and you may be a full E cup in one style/manufacturer's bra and a F cup in another. Even getting professional fitting in a store you may come up with different answers. Hope this answers your question. Regards Dr Charles Cope

Breasts augmentation from E cup to F cup

Dear Allycat,
    You make it very difficult to answer your question because you did not submit your chest circumference measurment in inches which is critical for size selection. There is also discrepancy between E cup and 500 cc of natural breasts tissue. If you are wearing a 32 inches chest circumference bra, than your cup should be only a D cup. Let's assume that indeed you are 32 D cup,  325 cc implants will increase your cup size by 21/2 sizes which will bring you to a full F cup. Obviously, different measurements will change the whole picture. Always, consult with experienced board certified plastic surgeons who operates in accredited surgery center. Check their before and after pictures to make sure that they are numerous, consistent and you like them. Also, check the reviews for positive patients experience.
            Best of luck,

Bra cup size increase with 325 cc breast implants

Generally speaking an anecdotal estimate is that 200 cc of breast implant will increase cup size by one.  However understand that different bra manufacturers label the same bra a different cup sizes.  For more information on estimating or how to choose breast implant size please read the following link:
