You should have a good understanding of who you are and where you want to be, not only here today but also five, 10 years down the line. It's a simplification but many young women say, "I want to be as big as I can be." But yet you should think a little bit about where you're going to be after babies.

If you've gained weight, and you have your own breast tissue layered on top of the implant, I think the difficulty is if you have a very tight chested skin brassiere, Not much tissue, tight muscles, it's going to be a big undertaking to get you to a DD right off the bat because the tissues just simply won't accommodate, especially if you're going with one of the ultra high profile silicones or the high profile salines and really pushing hard on that soft tissue envelope.

Yes, you can get there, but the question is, "Should you really get there? And would you always want to stay there? It's difficult to be able to really get inside someone's head and to figure out, "Is this the right thing for them?" But I always put that question back to them. Yes, I can get you fairly large, but you don't want to be signing up necessarily for additional surgeries. Enjoy what you have.
