Breast implants

How to choose the right breast implants is the most commonly asked questions by patients.  I have here a series of five videos which explains the process of choosing the right breast implant. In the first video, we will discuss about how to choose the appropriate breast implant diameter for you. We will be discussing about round implants.

Round breasts implants are almost circular in shape. The most important measurement is the diameter of a round implant which can be measured by drawing a line through its center.  Implant size changes the volume of the implant. The larger the diameter of the implant, the more volume it will have.

There is one basic measurement that you can do at home if you want to determine what implant diameter will be best for you.  This measurement is called the breast base or the width of the breast. The width of the breast  is measured from where the breasts starts, close to the midline, all the way to the side.  You can take a ruler to measure your breast base. The implant width you choose should be similar to your breast base measurement.

You will have a clearer idea of the range of breast implant dimensions that will fit you once you measured your breast width. Mentor implants have a table with all the implant sizes. You can find the table on my website,

The first thing you can see at the top of the table is whether the implant is silcone or saline. Let’s assume that you decided on silicone implants, but the same concept applies to saline implants. We will discuss about the implant profile on the third video.   As you can see, there are three columns in this table.  From left side is the implant volume, then the implant diameter and the next is the implant projection.

Let’s assume you have measured your breast diameter in 11.4 cm. Once you have the number, you can go to the table and look for the implant diameter that matches the number. For a diameter of 11.4, the recommended implant is a 325 cc implant. This is not necessarily an absolute number, since we can vary this volume. We can go 50 cc to 75 cc in both directions; in others there may be a range of 250 cc to 400 cc.
