istock_000009518082_large-compressorFor patients in The Woodlands considering breast augmentation, there are a lot of decisions to make about the procedure. Getting implants requires careful planning, research, and thought before committing to the surgery. Just like any serious decision, it’s normal that you’d want to be cautious and make sure you’re getting all of the information possible to come to the best conclusion.

At Myers Plastic Surgery, we understand how important it is for patients in The Woodlands to know what they’re getting into. When having a breast augmentation, patients must consider factors such as what shape they desire, which plastic surgeon to use, and a number of other things. However, the most common concern for patients who seek out breast augmentation is making sure they choose the right sized implant.

Most patients seeking breast augmentation usually desire fuller, shapely breast implants; but may not know the exact size they want. Although you may have an idea of what size is best for you, there are a couple of tips that we’ve come up with to make sure that you come away from the procedure looking your best.

Consider the Look You Are Going For

Getting a breast augmentation can drastically change how you look. Depending on your previous breast size and the size you are going to, your appearance is going to change. It’s important to consider this factor because it is a distinct possibility that people will treat you differently if you move up drastically in size. The surgery alters your breasts to make them bigger and plumper, so being mentally prepared to draw more attention is an important consideration.

Try On Your Desired Breast Implant Size

Whenever you are considering a certain implant size, bear in mind that you can always “try it on” to see how it would look. Most plastic surgery offices provide bras with these desired sizes so that you can see how you would look with breast implants.

Factor in Your Body Type

When choosing your implant size, The Woodlands patients want to make sure your breasts will end up enhancing your body in a positive way. It’s better to think more about what size will work best for you personally than to worry about specific measurements. For instance, a person with a small frame with 250cc implants will look drastically different from someone with a bigger frame with the same size breast implants. That’s why we suggest picking a size that will fit you proportionally.

Make Sure Your New Size Fits Your Current Lifestyle

Many patients in The Woodlands don’t realize that their lifestyle is a huge factor in considering breast implant size. While it’s not impossible for athletes and runners to get bigger sized implants, it may not be ideal to go for a size DD if you are someone who leads a very active lifestyle. Talk to Dr. Myers about how active your lifestyle is before deciding on your implant size.

Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon

The last tip we have is choosing the plastic surgeon. If you’re still stuck on which implant size is the best for you, trained surgeons such as Dr. Myers can talk with you and help you reach an informed decision about which size is best for you. At Myers Plastic Surgery, we will work with you to make sure that your implants look amazing but just as important; they fit your body type and lifestyle.
