During the consultation and as the planning process progresses, you may realize that your desired outcome changes. By following these steps alongside consultation with qualified surgeons, you all make the right decision.
1. Size and volume of the implants
You’ll probably change your mind a few times before you conclude on the size you want. Firstly, know that breast implant sizes are not the same as bra cup sizes. Breast implants are measured in volume in cubic centimeters (CCs). Learn to speak in volumes, for instance, 340 Ccs or 400Ccs. While surfing the net, you’ll have come across words like 200Ccs or more. The more CCs an implant has, the larger it is and more prominent is its projection. The diameter of an implant also determines the result in projection. The wider the diameter, the more projected the breast looks.
2. Shape of the implants.
What makes each special is that people come with different uniqueness. The human breast isn’t left out too. Each woman’s taste in the shape of the breast is different, which is why breast implants come in different shapes and sizes. Breast implants can be Teardrop or Round shaped. The round-shaped implants have a symmetrical look, and it gives the breast the same level of roundness and fullness. Teardrop shape, as the name implies, is shaped like a teardrop. It has more volume in the lower half. The lower part of the breast below the nipple is fuller than other parts. Teardrop-shaped implants the breast a more natural look, while the round-shaped implants have more outward projection with a fuller look on top. Most women prefer round-shaped implants because of their dramatic fullness.
3. Natural Anatomy.
Your anatomy is vital in implant selection. Your weight, size, height, shoulder width, hip, and shape are important factors to be considered. The looseness and elasticity of your skin are really important. There must be enough tissue to cover the implant you desire without rippling. Body shape also plays an important role, and you don’t want big boobs and a flat butt. An implant that will be incredibly big on slender patients might be unnoticeable on larger patients. Women with smaller frames may suffer severe back pain with large implants. Simultaneously, ladies with a hard look or built body can carry the weight of heavy breast implants.
Naturally, women or men aged 18/22 and above are preferred candidates for breast augmentation. Research reveals that the breast may still be developing till age 22. Women in the childbearing stage shouldn’t consider breast augmentation because breast grows and shrink during and after pregnancy. It is considered wise to wait to get breast implants until after you have stopped childbearing. It prevents additional surgery from getting one’s desired look. Long-term results should be considered; choose a size and shape that will retain its firmness, natural look, and durability. The breast sags as you age; it naturally becomes drooping and flatter because the ligaments supporting the breast lose elasticity. Voluminous or heavy implants can put the breast at risk of extra sagging.
5. Fitness and Closet
Women opt for breast implants to enhance their look and not lose themselves while getting a body lift. As a runner, sportsperson, or athlete, avoid implants so large they interfere with your fitness routine. For fitness freaks, large implants could hinder you from strenuous exercises and sporting activities. Avoiding unnecessary attention to smaller-sized implants can help prevent button gaps in professional tops and blazers. If your goal is to fit into the low-cut dresses you admire, a larger implant is better.

7. Breast implants can’t last a lifetime
Breast implants are designed to be permanent but can do at any point. As it age, it becomes more vulnerable to rupture or rippling. Women upgrade their breast implants in the future; this is best for reducing the risk of complications and maintaining an optimal appearance. Women with silicone gel implants should get MRI ( Magnetic Resonance Imaging) regularly. It could be done after 3 years of a properly done procedure and every 2 years afterward.
