Breast Augmentation – Implant size
Breast Augmentation Dubai | 6 August 2018
Implants are supplied by volume in millilitres or weight in grams. It is not possible to just pick a cup size and ask your surgeon to supply that. At your preoperative consultation your surgeon will assess your chest wall, your existing volume of breast tissue and how much skin is available to accommodate the implant. Your surgeon will be able to give you an idea of what implant size is appropriate for you. Your own view is also important since in most patients a range of possible implant sizes could be used and it is helpful if the surgeon knows if you would tend towards the larger or smaller end of that range. Your surgeon will not be able to guarantee you a cup size. In general the larger the implants that are used and the slimmer you are the less natural-looking your breast augmentation will be. The implant will be less obvious if it is not oversized and if you have a reasonable amount of your own tissue to cover the implant.
