Thanks for your question. Based on your personal description as well as your photos, you would likely be an excellent candidate for a breast augmentation. There are many decisions that have to be made prior to surgery, including things like incision placement, implant type and fill volume. These decisions are best made after consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, which includes a physical exam. During the exam, your plastic surgeon will take specific measurements of your breasts which will help guide you through the process of choosing the right breast implants for you. Best of luck and take care.
Breast Augmentation - Size Selection
Where to start with breast implants!!
You are doing the right thing by getting information and understanding the options before seeing a surgeon.I am sure you do not need to travel abroad. There must be lots of good plastic surgeons in NZ. If you were to have problems afterwards you do not want to have to go abroad to see your surgeon! So best to choose a surgeon closer to home.Check on qualifications and training along with there experience. You can ask them about their complication rate.You need to be examined to determine what is best for you. however, Your pictures and details suggest that you are slim with at least some breast tissue. You appear very typical of patients that we are seeing regularly requesting this type of surgery. In general the majority will have implants that are at least 275cc and most over 300cc. Relatively few, in the UK, would go for larger than 400cc. So if as a starting point you were thinking 300-350cc you would be in good company! You can experiment with dry rice in a stocking foot to try out different sizes. Measure the rice by volume not weight. Place the rice in a stocking foot and then in a sports bra. This will give you some idea of how the result will look. The majority of patients in my practice choose moderate profile implants. High profile certainly will look less natural. I mainly use round not tear drop shaped implants but great results can be achieved with either.Cleavage comes from a bra pushing the breasts up and together not just from implants! If you have your implants in a sub-muscular pocket they may not push to gather quite so well which may affect the extent to which you get a cleavage afterwards.Ultimately you need to be guided by a suitably qualified and experienced surgeon of which I am sure there are plenty in NZ!Good luck!
Starting Out. What implant, size, profile?
Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering breast augmentation surgery ( regarding breast implant size/profile selection) is:
1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you are looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work. 2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals. In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. For example, I have found that the use of words such as “very natural” etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful. Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on him who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate. Again, the use of computer imaging has been very helpful during the communication process, in our practice. 3. Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly, allow your plastic surgeon to use his/her years of experience/judgment to choose the breast implant size/profile that will best meet your goals. Again, in my practice, this decision is usually made during surgery, after the use of temporary intraoperative sizers. I hope this (and the attached link, dedicated to breast augmentation surgery concerns) helps. Best wishes for an outcome that you will be very pleased with.
