Looking to achieve a natural "perky" look with breast implants. Would 400cc make me look top heavy? (Photo)

Breast implant size
Many women want to be as large as possible.
But other women find their male surgeons recommend implants that are larger than they want.
For a more natural look, a smaller implant is better.
The best way to find out the right implant for you is to return to your plastic surgeon and try on sizers between 300 cc and 450 cc.
A high profile implant is only reasonable if you want more fullness in a narrow chest -
It seems you want a more natural look, not a larger implant.
So a round moderate profile implant sounds a great suggestion - but maybe a little smaller than 400. Best wishes.

Selecting an implant size

1. Dimensional planning
2. Gel Implant Sizing system
Dimensional planning – The measurements of your chest wall are taken. Also, the breast dimensions including the height, width, and current dimensions of each breast form the basis of dimensional planning. Based on these measurements, the implant size is recommended. This will give you a unique breast implant that is suited for your body frame. However, there are some limitations of what size we can recommend. For instance, some implants may just be too big for a narrow chest wall. Your surgeon can review this with you during the consultation.
Gel Implant Sizing system – During the preliminary breast implant consultation, you will be provided with an option to “try on” a variety of implant shapes and sizes. You can also visualize the possible outcomes of your surgery which helps you to get that perfect size to give you the shape that you longed for. This way your preferences are known and you can then pick a range of implants that will “fit” just right to give a soft natural fuller look. Hope this helps.
Breast Augmentation Sizing
Thank you for your question. You are a good candidate for breast augmentation. Your questions regarding sizing are best answered in person with a board-certified plastic surgeon with expertise in breast augmentation surgery. Ideally you may also undergo Vectra 3-D imaging to simulate your results after surgery and have a discussion with the different sizes you are proposing. In general however you will not notice a difference between a 400 and 425cc implant. Breast of luck :).
Perky looking breast implants: 350cc / 375cc / 400cc
Selection can also be helped by using 3D simulation software that can help you see what you would look like with different sized implants. Many surgeons have software like Crisalix or Vectra in their office you can go home seeing what you would probably look like with 350cc implants, 375cc implants, or 400cc implants. It isn't a guarantee, but it is a very close approximation.
350cc versus 400cc breast implants
You will likely look great with either size implant. If you don't want D cup breasts, then go with the smaller 350cc implants. Good luck!
