295cc or 325cc? (Photo)

my surgery is in 2 weeks and my surgeon suggested 325cc anatomical under the muscle. I am currently a 32A (I think!) and I have pictures of what I want to be. I'm scared of 325 looking too big although he thinks I can pull off that size. I don't know whether I should get the size smaller which is 295cc. I tried making rice sizers but don't know if I made them correctly because they both looked big! Which size is most likely to give me the look that I want?

Difference between 295 and 325 is very little. Either one will give you a nice result....personally, I'd pick the 325s.

The difference in those two implants is a  cup of nyquil or a shot of alcohol.  I am not sure it will make a diffrence one way or the other.

I believe a 295cc implant is large enough for you at this point. Your skin is tight and it does not take much to greatly enhance the appearance of your breasts. Good luck.

Thank you for the pictures.

I definitely think that the 325 cc will give your breast a great change, more volume and cleavage.

If I were to "guess" I would opt for the 325s but using UHP implants instead of anatomies. But You need to be re examined to make sure you are OK with the decision..//

The size difference between the two is minimal and unlikely to make a big difference.  Keep in mind that if the implant is being placed under the muscle, you will lose about 30cc of size.  If women are unhappy with sizing, they usually wish they had gone bigger.

325 cc moderate profile plus round implants to achieve the desired look

Thank you for your question.  Based on your photograph I concur with your surgeon 325 cc is more likely to achieve the look that you say you want however to 95 is very close and should be almost as good.

I also am not a fan shaped implants.  They have to be placed exactly as as they do not adjust to the breast and body shape as well as round implants.  I used round implants in 99% of the patient's that I treat and have for 31 years.  I am not certain what benefit there would be for you to shaped implants as the desired look picture that you provide has a nice round breast with fullness above the areola.  The shaped anatomical implant will emphasize volume below the nipple areola.

while I am not a fan of shaped implants I think the size choice is very good and bigger is better in my opinion since you have narrowed it down to 2 conservative implants that will not overload your frame. Good Luck!

Have you tried sizers on at your plastic surgeon's office? That can give you a better idea of what those volumes added to your own tissues will achieve...not in shape, but in volume filling out a bra cup.  As mentioned, the 30cc difference is a very mild one.  Judging by the photos of your desired result, I think that 325cc implants will look good and you probably need that volume to achieve the size and shape you desire.  Also, since your "desired look" has a fuller upper pole, though not overly so, I am not sure what the anatomic implant does for you as compared to a round implant, since the upper pole with the anatomic shaped (and somewhat firmer) implant will give you less upper pole fill.
