Three Steps To Ensure You Find The Right Size for Beautiful Breasts

Breast Augmentation Woman

It is a natural desire for women to want fuller and larger breasts to compliment their feminine physique. Some women are born with naturally large breasts and others have a difficult time living with a small volume bust. There are millions of women turning to breast augmentation every year, because they know that increased size and shape is achieved by breast implants. However, many are still confused when it comes to breast implant size, most of the time going bigger is not always better so to help you in your quest for beautiful breasts we will tell you what you need to consider to find the right breast implant size.

A Profile that Fits You

Most women are unaware that breast implants are available in different profiles. The profile is determined by the ratio between circumference of the implant and its height on the chest. Breast implants with a low profile will appear wider than they will be in height, and implants with a high profile will have more height than width.

Implant profiles are important when it comes to the patient’s chest. Women with a narrow chest will most likely search for a breast implant with a high profile to prevent the breasts from looking too close together. Other women with a wide chest will opt for breast implants with a low profile to ensure that their breasts do not appear too far apart.

Implants Should Suit Your Frame Not Cup Size

One of the biggest things women forget about is that bra cup size does not relate to breast implant size. Bra manufacturers offer various cup sizes and styles, which do not provide an accurate measurement for implant size. Instead women should openly consult with their plastic surgeon about the size of the implant that supports their frame.

A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words

Communicating your goals during consultation is the most important step, but bringing in pictures can help provide your surgeon with a clear idea about how big or small breast implants should be. Avoid bringing in pictures of models or celebrities, because their body frames are not always similar, instead select before and after photos of breast augmentation patients that reveal the results you are hoping to achieve.

The first thing you should think of when planning your breast augmentation with Dr. Traci Temmen is size. Finding an implant profile that matches your chest size is the first step. Then determining which size implant that compliments your body’s frame, not cup size, is next. Lastly, providing examples to Dr. Temmen about what you want your breasts to look like will ensure that you find the right size implant for the beautiful breasts you have been longing for.
