One of the most popular questions we get from patients interested in undergoing breast augmentation surgery with implants is what size of implants to choose. And it is a legit question as the results of the procedure will greatly depend on the type of implants that are chosen during the pre-operative consultation. Many women who want to undergo breast implant surgery are interested in going from an A cup to a C cup. This type of augmentation is only possible to be achieved with the help of implants. No other method can ensure an increase of breast volume with two bra cup sizes aside from breast implant surgery. Patients interested in this procedure also ask whether it would be better to try lipofilling instead of implants. It is important to understand that while fat grafting is a procedure that can deliver beautiful results for some patients, it has an effect more on the contour of the breasts, their fullness and shape rather than in terms of increasing the size. With lipofilling we can achieve an augmentation of half a cup size (maybe up to a cup), but not more. If the plastic surgeon injects more fat into the breasts, the results would be disappointing as the fat will just be reabsorbed by the body in the first two to three months. This is the reason why the only reliable and efficient method to go from an A cup to a C cup is by getting implants. The volume, shape, texture, and content of the implants that are best for you will be recommended by the plastic surgeon during the pre-operative consultation. It is also important to understand that if your friend has used a certain volume of the implant to achieve a result you want, it doesn’t necessarily mean you need the same size of implants. The volume of implant that will help you reach your aesthetic goal is dependent on the initial condition of the breast tissue, as well as your other anatomical characteristics. If you have very little breast tissue before the procedure, the plastic surgeon might decide to have the implants inserted under the pectoral muscle for better coverage. Also, keep in mind that the breast augmentation procedure is more than a surgery; it is a redefinition of some of the most important symbols of femininity in a woman: her breasts. Implants can enhance a woman’s beauty and her physical appearance, and this is the reason why they should be harmonious with the rest of her anatomy. There should always be proportionality between the implants chosen for the procedure and the anatomical characteristics of a patient. Generally speaking, the C cup is a popular expectation for most of my clients. It stands for breasts that are big enough but at the same time not overly excessive.
