This is very frustrating for us as plastic surgeons because certainly women are deserving of much larger size implants than 800cc in certain situations. When you discuss this with the manufacturers, they would be more than happy to make a larger volume implant but the FDA has put restrictions on them since implants were mainly used for augmentation purposes and their original thoughts were not to use or ever need more than 800 cc to augment a breast , seemingly being oblivious to reconstruction patients who were large breasted.
Your surgeon is correct in telling you that 800cc silicone get implants are the largest on the market. Additional volume can be gained by fat grafting or alternatively by adding tissue from a flap. Body shape and size play a large part in reconstruction and postoperative appearance.
Thank you for your question. Indeed, your surgeon is right. 800cc is the largest silicone breast implant on the market.
Your plastic surgeon is right. The largest implant made and available in the U.S. is 800 cc.
You want more volume then you will need a flap and implant.
