Breast augmentation implant size

Choosing the most appropriate implant for you is the most important decision when performing a breast augmentation. This factor is one of the must-discuss topics during the initial consultation. You just can’t pick the size that you want because you might risk your life in the long run.

In my years of experience in the cosmetic surgery world, I noticed that patients get confused regarding the number of cc and how this will translate into a cup size. Breast implants are sized in cc, or cubic centimeters, which is a measurement of volume. For example, if you want a 400 cc implant, there is 400 mL of volume in that particular implant.

Now, to decide which implant is most appropriate for you, I recommend watching the previous videos where I have discussed this. What I wanted to talk about today is the difference between different implant volumes and how this translates into a breast cup size. When I talk to my patients during consultation, I offer a range of implant sizes once they choose the implant that will fit the best. For example, if a 400 cc implant fits best, your breast can handle 425 cc, 375 cc, etc. Further discussions have to be made, of course, after a series of assessment and examinations.

So, for you to understand 25 cc, let me show you using this little bottle. You can see that this little bottle is 25 cc. If you add it to 400 cc, you can tell that this is not going to make a huge difference. In order to increase a cup size, meaning going from a C to a full C, there must be at least 150 cc of difference in the implant size. For example, based on your anatomy, we can use a 400 cc implant and it will take you to a full C.
