If you’re unhappy with your breast size and are considering upping your cup size with breast augmentation, you may feel overwhelmed about the variety of implant sizes to choose from. Breast enlargement is far from a one-size-fits-all solution since each woman’s needs and concerns are unique. Here are a few ways to determine the perfect breast implant size for you.
Consider Your Goals
The importance of your breast augmentation goals cannot be understated. Do want a subtle, natural-looking enhancement that friends and family may or may not notice? Or are you hoping for a dramatic, attention-getting boost for your bust line? It’s a good idea to try on implant sizers with different outfits and around the house to get a sense of how larger breasts will feel and look on your figure to help you meet your goals.
Larger breasts bounce more and require more support for rigorous activities.
When you increase your breast size, you’re increasing the weight of your breasts as well. Do you run, play tennis or ride horses? Are you an avid yogi or do you participate in martial arts? Athletic and active women often benefit from a modest implant size that doesn’t inhibit their everyday activities.
Depending on your natural anatomy, very large implants may not be a good option for you. Women with naturally petite frames can risk complications and unnatural-looking results by opting for a large implant size. However, that doesn’t mean large breasts are out of the picture if your goal is to have an extra curvy silhouette. Small-breasted women can choose a moderate breast implant size to allow their skin, muscle and tissue to stretch before considering an update to their implants in the future.
