Breast Augmentation – What Breast Size is Best for You?

Are you considering breast augmentation or breast implants?  If so, you have many options available to you.  Breast implants come in all shapes, sizes, profiles, and even “feels.” With so many options, it’s pretty easy to get overwhelmed.  Don’t worry, a breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Magassy, Top-Rated Plastic Surgeon in Virginia, will have you looking forward to breasts that look amazing, and amazingly natural.

When it comes to breast implants, there are two things you should focus on when it comes to choosing implants:  How do I want to look?  How can I make sure my new breasts fit my lifestyle?  By communicating your likes and expectations of breast implants, Dr. Magassy will help you find the implants that will match your desired look and lifestyle.

“How Do I Want to Look?”

Or, better question, how big should you go?  One of the major factors that will limit the size of your implants is your current breast size.  Why?  You have to have enough existing breast tissue to cover the implant.  Some implants may be too big if you don’t have a lot of tissue to spare.  Dr. Magassy will also look at your chest and shoulder width and help guide you to a size that works well with your frame.

Part of “how do you want to look” will focus on symmetry.  Plenty of women choose to have a breast augmentation to help them be the same size on both sides.  If you’ve had significant size difference before, you will be able to have amazing symmetrical results by using different sized implants on each side.

“Consider Your Lifestyle”

Are you an avid runner, swimmer, cyclist or bodybuilder?  If you are an athlete and considering breast augmentation, you want to have implants that give you the shape you want without being too big to exercise comfortably. Talk to Dr. Magassy about your activity level – he will be able to help you choose the right size.

You want your breasts to look and feel great for years and with so many choices, right size implants are a big decision.  If you are too conservative, you might wish you’d gone with the bigger implants.  Or, if you go too large, you may have back pain or sagging a few years down the road.Want to find your perfect fit?
