By now, you’ve probably read a lot of overwhelming information on breast implant sizing. We are here to simplify things and give you some pointers on what to consider when procedure planning.
What Look Would You Like To Achieve?
Clear communication between you and Dr. Brooks is key. At the time of your initial consultation you will discuss your desired results in detail and visual aids will be used to confirm a common understanding.
You’ve probably seen some photos that reflect the look you’re going for and your breast augmentation wishlist is starting to come together. Collecting photos for your wishlist is a great way to give Dr. Brooks a clear visual of your augmentation goals.
You will be asked to explain what you like best about your favorite wishlist photos.
It’s also helpful if your wishlist includes 3 different types of photos: 1) Photos of women with their shirt on, 2) Photos of women wearing a bra without a shirt on, 3) Photos of women without a bra or shirt on.
That extra important information will provide Dr. Brooks with the clarity he needs to get a full understanding of your preferred look.
What Breast Implant Size Is The Best Fit For Your Lifestyle?
If you are a physically active person who likes jogging, aerobics, weight lifting and playing sports there’s a good chance that you won’t want your breasts to get in the way. Bigger is not always better, smaller implants have some advantages.
If most of your time is spent taking part in activities that don’t cause your breasts to move significantly, then you might consider larger implant options.
Your Existing Measurements
Your current breast size matters because you need to have enough breast tissue to cover the implant. Larger implants require more breast tissue, if you don’t have a lot to spare, you may have to look at smaller implant options.
Your chest wall and shoulder width will determine the base width of your breast implant. Dr. Brooks will let you know which size works well with your frame.
In-Office Sizer Implants
Once the best implant options are determined for your surgery, Dr. Brooks will give you sizer implants that you can try on with a sizing bra so you can pick the implants that you like best.
