What Size Should I Have for my Breast Implant Revision? I Want a Sexy, Kim Kardashian-Like Result.

I have 375CC moderate profile...The result is great but i am not happy with the size. Would love something more sexy, pulpy like Kim Kardashian for exemple!! Nothing too fake but bigger. And i feel ready to assume it. My first BA was only 2 months ago...I'm thinking of something between 550 and 650CC?!! Is it too big or small?!

Unhappy with size after breast implants

If you want a larger size, we would advise waiting at least 6 months and preferably one year.  Yes it is possible to go to the size you are thinking about. As far as the Kardashian photo you posted, a clothed photo with a push up bra gives you no information on what that person looks like without clothes. Some patients with droopy smaller breasts can look significantly different with the right bra.

Breast Size

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

I advise my patients to live with their breasts for a least a year before deciding they would like to change sizes. As far as size goes, discuss your concerns with the current size and your expectations with your surgeon. I ask my patients to bring in photos of breasts they like for reference. It allows the patient to communicate to me exactly what they are looking for. Keep in mind that the size of the implant will look different on every body type. Clear communication is the key! Best  wishes!

Larger breasts

Since you are only two months out, it is a bit early to consider having another procedure.  I would wait at least 3-6 months and see how your body accomodates to the ones you have now.

Hi Mirjano, Dissatisfaction with the size of one’s implants is the most common reason patients seek a breast revision, almost always switching to a larger implant. Every surgeon uses a different angle when working with patients to determine what size implants will give them the outcome they want. I am a fan of The Rice Test and "Wish For" photos from patients. I have no idea what was the method your surgeon used or what took place, but I can say this process is about what YOU want, not what anyone else thinks. Your surgeon is a trusted source that should advise you if your choice is too large and will result in complications or too small and not give you the optimal result. Regardless, you've got some time because no one should be attempting a revision on you for a few more months. Be patient and let your breasts heal and change to their final shape over the next few months. You may be pleasantly surprised. Best of luck to you.

Increasing Implant Size Two Months Post Op

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Yes, it is possible to #increase your implant size with a #revision. However, the #pocket may require adjustment and a lift may be necessary; to better #support the new implant depending on an evaluation. Additionally, a mesh for further support may be helpful depending on the #implant size and skin #elasticity.

Typically, it's best to wait 6 to 12 months depending on the reason for #revision.  Matters such as sagging or drooping  and size change will not improve with time. As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic. With any surgical procedure, there are some risks which your doctor will discuss with you during your consultation.

Your procedure should always be performed by a #PlasticSurgeon who is board-certified and has a great deal of experience specializing in cosmetic #surgery. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire, and, without the need for another revision surgery. It is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient #reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.

Breast implant size

Thank you for your question and for sharing your photo. Size of the implants can be very personal choices that a patient makes. In many cases, patients can go from a A cup to a D cup or larger. In our practice, I begin by asking whether you are looking for more projection or perkiness and whether you mind have some of the breast tissue push outwards on the side. In addition, I ask you to try on different external sizers to give you a sense of what your breast may look like and the feel of extra volume in the breasts. In addition, I take details measurements of the breast including the base diameter of the breast. Your volume range and the breast shape preferences helps me the further guide you in your implant selection and to give you guidance on what the breast might look.
Given that you have 375 MP now, I would still go through the same process but would ask that you wait until the six month to one year mark to allow your breast implants to fully settle.  You may want also consider the higher profile implants if you want larger sizes.
I would visit with some board certified plastic surgeons in your area to discuss your options and goals in more detail.

Wait at least 6 months.

Breast implant exchange for size should always be delayed at least six months following breast augmentation surgery.Not only does it take time for women to adjust to their new breasts, but the breasts are also undergoing significant changes during this time period.These changes make aesthetic judgements difficult within the immediate post-operative period.
After six months it’s appropriate to re-evaluate your situation.If you’re still interested in increasing your breast size, aesthetic judgements can be more easily made at this time.It’s important to maintain good communication with your plastic surgeon.When the time is right your plastic surgeon should be able to formulate a treatment plan that addresses your anatomic findings and achieves your aesthetic goals.

To determine the best size for exchange you will have to seek consultations in plastic surgeons' offices. I would expect that you will increase volume by at least 150cc. Best of luck.

Increase size with capsular revision

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
That range will be good, as long as the space is opened medially.  I would think that a capsulotomy would help create the contours you want, then adding more volume and projection would provide the fullness.

You are still early in the healing process, and need to wait.  Do discuss your concerns with your surgeon.  But remember, this was the size you and he decided upon.  You may not have enough tissue to support a larger implant.  Please listen to his advice.
