Going from breast tissue expanders to implants, does same size give same results?

Expanders to implants
I ask my patients at what volume they are happy when I inflate them. I often over inflate them and then exchange them for the volume
Typically, expanders are filled beyond your desired implant size. Usually by 10-20%. Your final implants will have a different shape from your expanders as well, so your breast won't look identical, but in general, the final implant is more forgiving.
