Anything is possible when it comes to implants

as long as an implant has the dimensions that will fit on your frame.  BUT you must realize that it will probably be large on you and it will 'turn heads' when walking down the street.  And that there are more potential long term problems that arise from larger implants.  If you're accepting of all the risks, then go for it.

Breast augmentation

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the photo did not upload, but base on your weight it sounds like you have a petite frame. As the volume of the implant increases either the width or the projection of the implant has to increase to accommodate the extra volume. Even using a high profile 650 cc implant the width of the implant may be too wide for your chest.  You want to choose an implant that best fits the width of your breast. A 650 cc implant may be too wide for your chest. The other concern with large implants is that you are increased risk for complications such as synmastia and wound healing complications. Find a board certified plastic surgeon in your area and see if that size implant is right for your frame. Best of luck.

Implant size

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the picture you uploaded did not come through. Breast implant size is chosen based on a number of factors including your breast measurements and the quality of your skin. Your surgeon will measure the width of your breast and choose and implant based on that measurement. You don't want to choose an implant outside of your breast parameters. Additionally the larger the implant, the greater the long term complications. If you want a larger implant, ask your surgeon what the largest implant you can use is that still fits in the dimensions of your breast. Mentor makes an ultra-high profile implant that may work well. Best of luck. 

Breast Implant size

Ideal fit of a breast implant is based on the width of the breast and the quality of the overlying breast tissue which can be determined at consultation. 

Implant upsize

Thank you for your question.  Your photo didn't come through.  It would take an in person exam to see whether or not you have enough skin to accommodate a larger implant and it gives you the volume you desire.  

Best Wishes!

Is it possible to get 650cc implants?

Your photograph is unfortunately uncentered but generally speaking when someone has adequate skin for further enlargement after having 380 mL breast implants in place for a year or longer it is quite possible to accept a significant increase in volume with new larger breast implants.  My feeling is that the best time to determine the final implant size is during the surgical procedure when test implants or sizers can be placed to show size, shape and contour.  Discuss your specific goals with your plastic surgeon and allow him/her to make the best determination for you when the actual results of the implants can be seen.  Do keep in mind that large implants such as the ones you are suggesting have a higher incidence of tension ripples and breast tissue thinning in the future.  Enjoy your results and best wishes,

Is it possible to get 650cc implants?

Determining which breast implant is best to help a patient meet her goals requires an examination so, unfortunately, no one here is going to be able to give you a worthwhile answer. Breast implants have dimensions including width, height and projection (profile) as well as volume and all of these numbers need to be taken into consideration in conjunction with the width, height, breast tissue volume and position, and soft tissue quality of the breasts in order to choose an implant. It sounds like you already have a surgeon so why not pay the doctor a visit, get an exam and then you will have a reliable answer to your question.

Breast Augmentation - Size Selection

Thank you for your question. "Tissue based planning" relies on your chest and breast measurements and is the safest way to ensure good long term results. Your surgeon should determine what size and projection are necessary to give you your desired result based on your body's measurements. The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic breast surgery. Hope this helps and good luck with your surgery.

Thinking about 650cc implants

Thank you for your question. Breast implant selection is an important process and requires good communication between you and your surgeon. Typically, breast measurements are initially obtained to provide an initial guide to implants appropriate for your chest. It's then advised that you try different sizers in a normal bra with a tight t-shirt to get an idea of what your breasts would look like. It's important to focus on the look that you want and not overly focus on a specific cup size or implant size. Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!

Breast Implants/Breast Augmentation/Anatomic Gummy Bear Implants/ Silicone Implants/Breast Implant Revision Surgery

I appreciate your question.

The size of implant best for you is dictated by your chest wall measurements.  Once we determine that we can choose the profile based on what you want or need to achieve.  If you are seeking a natural look, then the diameter of the implant should be equal to or, more ideally, smaller than the width of your breast. The breast width is a measurement of how wide your breast is at the base, which should be measured at the level of the nipple. Choosing an implant that is smaller in diameter than your breast width will avoid the "side breast" fullness that is often associated with a more artificial appearance.  Other than that, you should choose the implant based on volume, not on the dimensions of the implant. You should choose a board certified plastic surgeon that you trust to help guide you in this decision.  

Silicone will give you a fullness at the top (upper pole fullness).

Silicone implants come pre-filled with a silicone gel and are the softest implant available. They feel more natural, which makes them a good option for women with less natural breast tissue; but they require a larger incision. It may be more difficult to realize if this type of implant has ruptured, so it is important to monitor them with annual follow-up visits. Additionally, because this implant contains a more liquid silicone (less cross-linked), if this implant should rupture, it will leak only into the scar capsule formed around the implant but may cause some discomfort or implant distortion.

Anatomic gummy bear implants might be a good choice to give you volume.

These highly-sought-after, anatomic implants offer a look that more closely resembles the natural silhouette of a breast, and, therefore, are a very attractive option for individuals seeking a natural-looking, aesthetic primary breast augmentation. Additionally, these implants are an especially excellent option for patients undergoing restorative or corrective breast surgery because they provide more stability, shape, and reduced incidence of capsular contracture. Compared to other types of silicone gel implants, the silicone in the cohesive gel implant is more cross-linked; therefore, should the implant shell “rupture,” it maintains its shape and silicone does not leak.

During your breast augmentation consultation, you should feel the different types of implants available, and try on various implant sizers in front of a mirror to help you to get an idea of how you will look following the surgery. You should also bring pictures of the look you would like to achieve, as well as a favorite top to wear when trying on implant sizers.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.

Best of luck!
