I'm getting 295cc in left boob and 365cc in my right boob natrelle implants full is the a big jump or would it be fine?
Thank you for your question. Being that you are asymmetric to begin with and your left breast appears larger than the right, a 70cc increase in implant size on the right will decrease some of that asymmetry in size. A physical exam would be required to confirm. Keep in mind that breasts are never exactly the same but symmetry can often be improved. Please consult with your surgeon about your concerns regarding the proper implant size. Good luck!

The 70cc difference, even though it sounds like a lot, really is not. Its probably less than a cup size. I would say the asymmetry you have is probably about half a cup size....hard to say without examining you in person though. I would trust your plastic surgeon. The other option is to just go the same size for each breast. You had asymmetry before that was not severe, so having it afterwards would be fine if you were ok with that. Its nearly impossible to do a breast augmentation and get both breasts looking identical. We have a saying in breast surgery...your breasts are sisters, not twins. I think the size you are going with will give you a full C to a D cup. Most women end up wishing they were a little bigger after surgery regardless of what implant you put in them. Best to consult with your surgeon because based on your measurements, that might be the right implant for you.

70 cc Difference
Even though 70 cc seems like a lot, it really isn't. It sounds like your surgeon has put a lot of thought into the implant selection, and I would have confidence in your surgeon. The end result should be beautiful breasts that are fairly symmetric (no breasts are perfectly symmetric, they are sisters and not identical twins). Best of luck!
The right size for you
Thank you for your question. When a patient has asymmetry to begin with I often give them the option of altering it or choosing two different sized implants. When trying on the implant sizers you get a feel for how they will look and if they are a match. If you are comfortable with this choice that is the important thing.
All the best
Breast Augmentation: Information
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately without a exam of your tissues and measurements I can can only comment based your story, however I hope you find my comments helpful.
The "best" implant choice is based not only on volume but other important factors.
My answers to your question is based on my experience.
Your anatomy will dictate some of the mutually agreed upon decisions both you and your chosen Plastic Surgery will make.
Breast size is a very personal choice. The correct answer is what proportions you want to achieve. Sometime bigger is not better.
My responses are:
A)purchase several bras (full bodied and no padding) of the size you think you want to
be. As you realize there are no standard bra (strap/cup) sizes.
B)take a measuring cup (1 oz=30cc) place rice in a nylon
C) try on various volumes of rice with some form fitting clothes.
2) profile of implant:
A) for the same volume the higher the profile the narrower the base width.
B)there is very little difference in projection between a moderate to high profile implant
thus little affect on how the actual nipple will look.
C) the base width of the breast should equal the base width of the implant
D)thus I personally chose the profile based on the patients chest measurements,
(a high profile on a wide chest may not result in the cleavage desired and
conversely a low profile on a narrow chest may result in implant in the outside arm
3)if implant is placed under the pectoralis muscle I usually add 10% volume to what the patient chooses.... To compensate for the muscle pressing down on the muscle and for
the naturally settleing of the implant which often makes the breast appear smaller 2-3 months after surgery.
I suggest you make out a list of your questions and select several nude "model" photos of what your desired goals/look would be and then schedule several different consultative appointments with experienced Plastic Surgeons who are Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who are ideally members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (denoting by membership as having met additional criteria and a focus on Cosmetic Plastic Surgery).

Size of #breast implants
Based on the limited info obtained from your pictures, a 70 cc diference in your implants choice sound adequate.
The most important factor in obtaining a good result in your cosmetic surgery is the surgeon you elect to perform it, seek the advise of a surgeon member of the ASAPS, that will assure you of the proper training of the surgeon, in your city there are several "cosmetic surgeons" that do not have the proper training.
A real plastic surgeon have privileges to practice this type of surgery in a hospital and surgery center.
