Breast Augmentation size???

How to Choose your Breast Implant Size
My best advice would be not to focus on a particular number. Have your plastic surgeon take your breast measurements including the width of your breast. In the U.S. there is a system that allows you to try on add on pads to your own breast and you can try it with a tank top and see what LOOK you prefer. Your surgeon will then see based on your breast diameter and the LOOK you want, which implant your BODY will TOLEARATE. This is the best way to choose an implant for long-term results. Each individual will tolerate a particular implant size based on their body and tissue characteristics. Hope this was helpful. Good Luck!

Size of implants and sizing
Thank you for your question. Its best to make decisions about size in person at the office with the implants and discuss all your options with your board certified plastic surgeon.

The thing about size is...
Did You Know? Implant size (measured by cubic centimeters, or “cc”) only matters as far as it will help you get the look you want. In these photos, can you guess who has the larger sized implants?
What limits how big you should go?
1. Your current breast size. This matters because you’ve got to have enough existing breast tissue to cover the implant. If you haven’t got a lot to spare, some implants may just be too big to fit.
2. Your chest and shoulder width. Fortunately, implants come in different base widths so you can get a size that works well with your frame.
I recommend to make an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon for a person evaluation and to talk about your goals.
Good luck :)
Breast Augmentation size???
Volume of implants, some advices:
First of all I recommend you to send your photos to give you more personalised advices and recommendations. In general about implants I recommend silicone implants, "Gummy bear Implants"; They are quite safe and aesthetically best as they give a firmer consistency, better projection and most natural appearance than Saline implants.

The right size for you
An in-person exam and surgery by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will be in your best interests
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.
My patients will try on a sports bra and then we pick the implants based on their measured breast base width. If your base width were to support for example up to a 400cc implant, I would have you try on the 400cc implants in the bra and then the 420 or 385cc implants and afterwards select the implant that made YOU the happiest. In reality, don't stress too much as this is not a HUGE difference and should be the fun part of the process. =) Go with what is acceptable based on your measurements and makes you happiest and make sure to weigh the pros and cons of the options you are considering. 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 go to a board certified plastic surgeon with expertise in aesthetic breast surgery.
I hope this helps answer your question!

The size of implant best for you is dictated by your chest wall measurements. Once we determine that we can choose the profile based on what you want or need to achieve. If you are seeking a natural look, then the diameter of the implant should be equal to or, more ideally, smaller than the width of your breast. The breast width is a measurement of how wide your breast is at the base, which should be measured at the level of the nipple. Choosing an implant that is smaller in diameter than your breast width will avoid the "side breast" fullness that is often associated with a more artificial appearance. Other than that, you should choose the implant based on volume, not on the dimensions of the implant. You should choose a board certified plastic surgeon that you trust to help guide you in this decision.
Silicone will give you a fullness at the top (upper pole fullness).
Silicone implants come pre-filled with a silicone gel and are the softest implant available. They feel more natural, which makes them a good option for women with less natural breast tissue; but they require a larger incision. It may be more difficult to realize if this type of implant has ruptured, so it is important to monitor them with annual follow-up visits. Additionally, because this implant contains a more liquid silicone (less cross-linked), if this implant should rupture, it will leak only into the scar capsule formed around the implant but may cause some discomfort or implant distortion.
Anatomic gummy bear implants might be a good choice to give you volume.
These highly-sought-after, anatomic implants offer a look that more closely resembles the natural silhouette of a breast, and, therefore, are a very attractive option for individuals seeking a natural-looking, aesthetic primary breast augmentation. Additionally, these implants are an especially excellent option for patients undergoing restorative or corrective breast surgery because they provide more stability, shape, and reduced incidence of capsular contracture. Compared to other types of silicone gel implants, the silicone in the cohesive gel implant is more cross-linked; therefore, should the implant shell “rupture,” it maintains its shape and silicone does not leak.
During your breast augmentation consultation, you should feel the different types of implants available, and try on various implant sizers in front of a mirror to help you to get an idea of how you will look following the surgery. You should also bring pictures of the look you would like to achieve, as well as a favorite top to wear when trying on implant sizers.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!
