What products to attain a similar look? (photos)
Doctor Answers 6
Thank you for the question and photos. It may be possible to guess at the implant type/shape and placement for you but you do need to be measured in person to determine what specific implant sizes fit you. Your Plastic surgeon will measure your breasts and choose a small selection of implant diameters which fit the breast width and increase slightly in volume and the projection or fullness increases. Round, silicone cohesive gel implants placed part way under the muscle can provide the full but somewhat natural look that you are after. You may have the option of choosing moderate or full projection implants to achieve the size you want. My patients find it helpful to try on implant sizers in the office with a form-fitting T-shirt in order to get an idea of how they will look.
I recommend that you seek board certified Plastic Surgeons who specialize in dimensional breast augmentation and book your consultations,
All the best
Thank you for your question and photographs. It is hard to recommend what CC’s you should get based on photographs. But I usually recommend high profile Sientra implants, under the muscle, to create a round full result that looks natural, giving you the result that you want. Additionally, we use Crisalix which is a virtual reality device that will allow you to view different sizes of implants and pick which best suits your desires. As the only board certified plastic surgeon in Pittsburgh offering this virtual reality imaging system, we have a 100% satisfaction rate. Crisalix is truly a unique experience for our patients as they can view themselves using virtual reality goggles and can instantly visualize their own breasts changing in size and shape with all of the various brands, sizes and shapes of breast implants. Thus, our patients leave the consultation feeling confident with the size of the implant they chose. I hope this helps.
Best of luck in your endeavors!

From your photos you would be a candidate for breast augmentation. That women in your other photos most like have fairly large implants proportion to there frame. This is one of the important things to consider prior to your consultation. I frequently will ask want is the look you are going for and not necessarily the cup size, although that is helpful, all bras are not created equal. There are many techniques with there pro's and con's for breast augmentation as well as types of implants and shape of implant and position for the implant. After consulting with your surgeon, they will decide what would be the best approach and implant to achieve your desired goal. Remember that there is also more than one right way to also reach that goal and there can be variation between surgeons.

Ultimately, careful communication of your goals (in my practice I prefer the use of goal pictures, direct examination/communication in front of a full-length mirror, in bra sizers, and computer imaging) as well as careful measurements (dimensional planning) will be critical.
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 “natural” or "C or D cup" 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.
