Will There Be a Noticeable Difference Between a 400cc or 375cc Cohesive Gel Implant Placed Under the Muscle?

I am going for my BA next Wednesday. My breast width is 12.4cm and i am a Small 34b. I had originally decided on the 400cc but when I seen that the 375cc offered the same projection and was closer to my natural width I started to second guess myself. I know the volume difference is only 25cc, but I want what will look most natural on me. I am also afraid of looking Too BIG!.. Or too small for that matter.

Difference of 25 cc in Breast Implants Significant?

The 25 cc difference in breast implant volume will likely not be significant clinically. I would suggest that you spend additional time communicating your goals with your plastic surgeon and allow him/her to choose the breast implant that will best meet your goals. Generally speaking, the most common regret after this operation is “I wish I was bigger”.

 Best wishes with your upcoming procedure.

Implant size

I would not worry too much about the 25cc difference.  Remember a dose of Nyquil in the plastic cup is 30ccs.  The time taken at your plastic surgeons office is invaluable to determining your idea of size.  I usually tell patients that if you are going between two close sizes-take the bigger one because usually you will wish you had.  The most common post-op concern is that the breasts are not big enough even though their concern on the initial visit was that "I don't want to be too big".  I think you will be fine with the high profile gel implants.
