Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgeries available. One concern that most patients have would be silicone breast implant sizes. Many factors come into play when you will be choosing the right implant size. Visit your doctor today to find out your eligibility for breast implants.
Choosing the right implant size
Factors such as breast measurements, characteristics of your breast, desired size and shape all play a role in the decision you are going to make. There are many ways to help determine which breast implant size would work best for you.
Rice test. This test has been deemed as the most popular way to determine which size would fit you best. Take some old pantyhose or stockings and cut off around 12 inches strip. It is not advisable to use the part that would go on your foot. Tie a knot on one end, to be able to make a sack for you to fill the rice in. Make two of these, one for each bra cup. Fill the pantyhose with rice and try different quantities to see which would look best on your body frame.
Water test. This test would be similar to the rice test. Only for this version, use a plastic bag and some water to test out the implant sizes that would look good on you.
It would be a good idea to try different articles of clothing, dresses, and tops, to see if the breasts would look good or not. One very big concern of people who want to have breast augmentation is that they would look fake.
Common mistakes you can make
Bra sizes. One of the common mistakes is to measure your breasts solely on bra size. Those sizes are not always accurate in measuring the volume that needs to be added to your breast. On top of this, bra sizes would vary from country to country and each brand might have a different way to measure sizes as well.
Implant size. Understandably, you would want your breast size to be remarkably bigger than it was before, that is why you are opting for a breast augmentation surgery. However, one common mistake is to have a miscalculation in the silicone breast implant sizes you are choosing from. If you choose a size that is too big, it could cause complications later on. There is the risk or tearing or too much sagging of the breast, on the other hand, choosing a size that is too small would defeat the purpose of the breast augmentation in the first place as it will not alter your body shape too much.
In conclusion, we suggest that if you are still unsure what size of silicone breast implant sizes would work best for your body frame and contour, it would be a good idea to consult with your plastic surgeon. They will be able to discuss with you the best sizes and shapes for the implants, and they can also make suggestions about which ones would look best. If you have any questions about any side-effects and risks, you may also ask your doctor about those.
