Thoughts on Allergan Natrelle Style 15 Sizes: 339 or 371--which projected size? And what profile should I use? (photo)

Breast Augmentation | Breast Implants
The difference between a 339 and a 371 cc implant is two table spoons. The most important information is your base width diameter.
Moderate and Moderate Plus implants tend to look more natural; high profile and ultra high profile give a much rounder look.
Textured anatomically shaped "Gummy Bear" implants look very natural but are slightly firmer.
To be sure, see two or more board-certified plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.
Implant Size Selection
Implants come in different types (silicone, saline), shape (round, anatomic), and profiles and volume.
More meaningful recommendation can be made based on direct examination and in-person consultation.
Please visit with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Best wishes.

There are many more options available so consider a 3D breast imaging session to see what is possible.

How to choose implant size?
Your included photo and statistics show you will be a great candidate for breast augmentation, and I would agree with those who recommend submuscular placement of cohesive silicone gel implants with dual-plane (subfascial inferolaterally) technique. You should also have Betadine irrigation, Keller Funnel insertion, and profile to match your desired implant volume and your own dimensions. I would likely measure your base width differently, but so long as the choice of implant diameter is based on your chosen surgeon's "usual" measurement method and decision-making, then the profile will likely be moderate plus or even high profile, as I suspect that wanting a full C or small D will NOT be met by either 339 or 371cc implants.
I would suggest that it takes 200-250cc to equal one bra cup size, especially for a 6'0" tall woman, so these implants (both) will give you no more than 1 1/2 cup sizes than your present A cup. The difference between these two choices is 2 tablespoons, which cannot be seen as visible discrepancy between these two sizes. I think you need closer to 500cc, but that would require both my own personal measurements and seeing your goal photographs.

Breast Implant Size Part2
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. However, there are some limitations of what size we can recommend. For instance, some implants may just be too big for a narrow chest wall. Your surgeon can review this with you during the consultation.
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. Hope this helps.
Thoughts and questions
I think you are a very good candidate for a breast augmentation.
The ideal size breast implant for any patient is determined by a number of factors. Each patient has the desire to look a certain way after surgery. Each patient's body is different and the size implant must be individualized for each patient. You may not be able to reach the bra or cup size that you want to be because the implant necessary to reach that result may simply be too big for your body.
For this reason it is necessary to meet and discuss your goals with a board certified plastic surgeon who will listen to your goals and examine you and tell you what size range of implants will be appropriate and this is the range you should use. This will certainly make you larger but you may not be the exact cup size you had in mind simply because your individual anatomy may not allow it.
Choosing an implant that is too large can cause a number of problems the majority of which require more surgery to repair. Making a decision that sets you up for more surgery is not ideal. Consult with several plastic surgeons if possible. I would not listen to your friends or family because they do not know what is best for you. The details of the surgery including selection of breast implant size should be left to the plastic surgeon.
Do not be afraid to have several consultations and make sure you are comfortable with your surgeon and with the plan.
Thank you for your question and best of luck.
