Breast Augmentation Sizing

If you have considered a breast augmentation procedure, you may have a cup size in mind that you believe is the perfect size. However, there is much more to consider for breast augmentation than bra size.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David O. Smith knows that the process of breast augmentation can be intimidating. He’s also aware that you’ll come into your consultation with an idea of how you want your breasts to look. Dr. Smith will listen to your needs and goals, then come up with a plan to deliver elegant, natural-looking results. In this blog, he provides some tips on how you can help your plastic surgeon envision your desired results.

Breast Augmentation and Cup Size

Telling Dr. Smith that you want a “C” cup during your initial consultation is not as helpful as you might have thought. It’s understandable why many women get hung up on bra size, as it is one of their only measurable tools for breast sizes, but it is not the most dependable method for determining the perfect size.

Depending on your chest width, the cup size may change even if your breast size is the same. For example, a woman wearing 36 C has similar bust measurements as a woman who fits a 34 DD. This doesn’t even take into consideration how cup size and look can vary depending on the manufacturer of the bra. Instead of falling into the trap of wanting a particular cup size, bring pictures of your ideal size and shape into your initial consultation to help Dr. Smith better see your desired size.

In Breast Augmentation, Proportion is More Important Than Size

Bigger isn’t always better. Bigger implants on a smaller body can make a woman look heavier than she really is. This is the reason why you need to consider how you can enhance your entire body shape with your implants, instead of just considering the size of the implants.

Dr. Smith’s practice in the Minneapolis area focuses on creating beautiful proportions through breast augmentation. He will help you walk you through the process of deciding an implant size that will fit your body shape and size perfectly.

Breast Augmentation and Cleavage

Many women are surprised to find out that increasing your breast size won’t necessarily give you more cleavage. This is why it is essential to consider cleavage during the breast augmentation process.

Cleavage is a result of the shape and proximity of your breasts, as well as the width of your chest. If you have a narrow chest, even smaller implants could potentially provide cleavage. Let Dr. Smith know during your initial consultation that you want cleavage, and he can help you consider your options for making beautiful cleavage a reality with your body shape.
