Choosing the Right Procedures

I have worked as a receptionist at a popular cosmetic surgery office for the past ten years, and I have seen every type of cosmetic surgery and recovery that you could imagine. Unfortunately, some patients are much better at choosing their procedures than others. For example, we had one patient that opted to have ten nose jobs in a row, which lead to a deformed bridge and a super tiny nose tip. Unfortunately, when she came back a few months later to have the problem corrected, the doctors didn't have enough tissue to work with. On my website, you will learn how to decide which procedures are right for you, so that you aren't left regretting your decisions down the road.

A, B, C, or D? Which Breast Implant Size Is Right for You?

by Michelle Austin

If you are thinking about getting breast augmentation, you are left with the difficult position of choosing an implant size. This can be a daunting task because you want to make sure you end up with a size that is flattering, yet still realistic.

The good news is that there are some tried and true methods of finding the right implant size for you. These tips will help you choose the right implants for your body.

Look at Photos

One way to determine what size breast implants will be right for you is to look at photos of other women who have had breast augmentation. Look for women who have a similar body type to yours and see what size implants they chose. This can give you a good starting point for choosing your own implant size.

Consider Your Body Type

Your body type should also be taken into consideration when choosing breast implants. For example, if you are petite, you may not want to choose very large implants as they will look out of proportion with the rest of your body. Conversely, if you are larger-boned, you may pull off a larger implant size.

Think About Your Lifestyle

Your lifestyle should also be taken into consideration when choosing breast implants. If you are very active, you may want to choose a smaller implant size so that they are not in the way or in pain when you are exercising.

Consider Your Favorite Types of Clothes

You should also consider your favorite types of clothing. If you love to wear fitted clothing, you may want to choose a smaller implant size so that you can find clothing that will fit closer to your body easily. Some types of clothing may become harder to wear after large implants.

Think About Bra Sizes

Let's face it: some bra sizes are harder to find (or are even more expensive) than others. If you do not want to be stuck trying to shop for a hard-to-find bra in the coming years, you may want to look at the sizes available at your favorite stores before you make your decision.

Talk to Your Surgeon

Of course, the best way to determine which breast implants are right for you is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon. He or she will be able to help you look at all of the factors involved and give you an honest opinion about which size is right for you and your body.
