I am certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and have practiced in the"land of breast implants", Miami, for the past 29 years. I encourage you to look up the surgeon you eventually select and make sure they have years of experience in performing cosmetic breast surgery. Furthermore request to see before and after photos of previous patients by that doctor....not a clinic or surgery center. Do your homework......research and verify the doctor's credentials. Have they had problems with the Board of Medicine, disciplinary or otherwise. Any law suits?
How about the center, clinic or facility? Are they accredited by a national organization or do they just have State approval. Understand that at the current time, there are three nationally recognized organizations responsible for the highest levels of patient safety, AAAASF, AAACH and JCHO. You owe it to yourself to position yourself for the best possible results but under the most stringent safety regulations, If you have kids, even more so.
How about anesthesia? Will you have a medical doctor certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology or a certified nurse anesthetist (CRNA)? Understand that there is no substitute for research. Cosmetic surgery, no matter how simple it may be to the patients, are invasive procedures and as such carry certain risks and complications.
I wish you the best on your journey. I hope that the info provided has been helpful. Should you require any further clarification, do not hesitate to contact our institute. I answer all questions personally, not through patient coordinators or other marketing individuals.
In our office we use TouchMD which is a web based program in which patients have the ability to load their picture unto the program. I then evaluate them and can actually draw on the picture to show a potential patient where the incisions would be located and how the procedure is to be realized. It's all done to comply with HIPPA which is the federal law that protects the patient's medical information. Look them up. Dr. PG
Asymmetry is common and sometimes the difference between two breasts can be somewhat reduced with two different implants volumes, however I would prefer to under correct than over correct and create a new difference that you are not used to.
I recommend that you book a consultation with a board certified Plastic Surgeon in your area who specialises in Breast Augmentation and try on the different sizers in your measurement range under a form fitting T-shirt. My patients find it helpful to see the implants and get a feel for them this way when deciding on size.
All the best

My best suggestion: select your plastic surgeon carefully. Then, communicate your goals carefully as well. Working together you will come up with the best plan to achieve an outcome that you will be pleased with.
All the best,
In my opinion, you would be fine with implants of the same size. Once your breasts will be bigger, the difference in size between them will become, as a percentage of the total volume, smaller and less visible. I don't think anything else would be needed.
