Follow-up Question: Carrying on from my question before, does having a good amount of breast tissue make a big difference?
Doctor Answers 8
Natural breast tissue does help to minimize visibility of breast implants, as does placement under the muscle. I recommend that you discuss your specific sizes and options in person with your Plastic Surgeon. My patients find it helpful to try on implant sizers in the office with a form fitting T-Shirt. Be sure to seek a board certified Plastic Surgeon,

500 cc implant
It all depends on your exisiting body frame size but it sounds like a very large implant and much bigger than most people have so it may give you a very unnatural result

Expected outcome from breast augmentation surgery?
- Thank you for the question. Generally speaking, much of the final look and feel achieved after breast augmentation surgery depends on several factors:
- 1. The initial shape, size (volume of breast tissue), symmetry of the patient's breasts. In general, the better the preoperative breast appearance the more likely the breast augmentation “look” will be optimal.
- 2. The experience/skill level of the surgeon is important in determining the final outcome. For example, the accurate and gentle dissection of the breast implant pockets are critical in producing long-term well-placed breast implants. Careful measurements (dimensional planning) and careful selection of breast implant size/profile are part of the surgeon's responsibilities. I personally think that these 2 factors are more important than any others, including type (saline or silicone) or model (low/moderate/high profile) of implant.
- 3. The type of implant used may determine the final outcome, especially if the patient does not have significant covering breast or adipose tissue. For example, some surgeons feel that silicone implants have a more natural look and feel than saline implants because silicone gel has a texture that is similar to breast tissue. In other words, if a patient has very low body fat and/or very little breast tissue, the silicone gel implants may provide a more "natural" result. In your case, you have a significant amount of breast tissue present that should provide adequate "coverage" of whichever breast implant type you select.
- 4. The size and model of breast implant used may make a significant difference in the final outcome. Therefore, it is very important to communicate your size goals with your surgeon. 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. are not helpful. Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate.
- I hope this, and the attached link (dedicated to breast augmentation concerns), helps. Best wishes.
Breast implant size
Breast implant size and style should be chosen based on your goals and your phycical examination. With specific breast measurements and an understanding of your goals, a board-certified plastic surgeon should be able to guide you in the procedures and implant size that will help you accomplish your aesthetic goals. Without pictures it is very difficult to give you specific advice on what would accomplish the best result for you. I recommend seeing a board-certified plastic surgeon to review concerns and to create a surgical plan.
