How to pick the right implant size
Breast implant size - estimating final result
- A 650 cc breast implant on a slim woman of normal height like you is likely to be very big.
- However choosing the implant is something best done with you and your surgeon.
- Bra size predictions are not reliable - but I would expect you to be considerably larger than a DD.
- For a C, you should be looking in the 350 - 450 range.
- This are large implants for a small frame - discuss the pros and cons with your surgeon.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Suggestion on CC's
It's difficult to estimate breast implant sizing without an in-person consultation. In person, a plastic surgeon can measure your breast dimensions, and select an implant that will give you the result you desire. To assist patients with implant selection, sometimes computer imaging is also helpful (we have the Vectra system in our practice).
However, based on your "wish" pictures, 650 is likely a bit too large. Something in the 400-500 cc range will probably work well for you. Best of luck!

Best Size for Breast Augmentation
Breast implant Size
The most important thing to consider is really the size and look that is appealing to YOU with the implants you choose. Many surgeons have sizing models whether using bras with implants or computer simulation. I encourage you to discuss with your surgeon many of these considerations when deciding which implant and size to use during your surgery. Additionally, a breast implant is a round object and has a certain diameter. Your base width on each side of your chest will determine "how big of a ball" or what diameter implant you can reliably go up to with a socially acceptable cosmetic outcome. The implant will "augment" or increase the size of your breasts to an amount acceptable to you and your surgeon. There is not a direct correlation between height/weight and base width; therefore, the base width should be measured as each person us unique.
You can also compare the high profile with moderate profile implants and see which look you like most. The profile of the implant will determine how much upper pole fullness and overall projection you portray.
Make sure to seek consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. I hope this helps answer your question.

Picking the right implant size to achieve your goals
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.
Breast Augmentation Size
It is important that we choose implants that fit your body to give you the best result, as there are limits to what size implants can safely be used that are determined by things like chest width and how much (or little) breast tissue you have to start with.
Three-dimensional photography and computer simulation now allows us to very accurately measure these variables, choose an appropriate implant, and simulate what you’ll look like after surgery – a much better option, in my opinion, than trying on implants and “guessing” at the right size.
Again, an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is your best resource for personalized information.
Hope this helps.
What size implants
Avoid implant that are too small
What size is best?
Regarding cup size, unfortunately there is no standardization among manufacturers – you will find that after surgery (and likely now, before any surgery) that you are different cup sizes in different bra companies. Implant selection is a complex process and demands a detailed discussion of your goals and a physical exam - I would suggest a formal consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon so your specific concerns can be gone over in detail, a physical exam be performed, and individualized recommendations be made. Good luck!
