How To Decide What Shape & Size Is Best For Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation With Implants

When you decide to have a breast augmentation in New Jersey, the size and shape of implants that you choose will significantly impact your final result. It’s extremely rare for women to desire an enhancement that leaves their body looking disproportionate and fake, but just what size will be the most flattering can vary.

The decision depends on a few anatomical factors and your personal opinion. In your private consultation, Dr. Gartner will be able to provide expert advice based on his experience, so you’ll know which implant options offer pleasing results according to your personal goals.

How Is Size Measured?

Breast implant sizes are measured by volume in cubic centimeters or CC. Available sizes range widely, from 80CC up to 800CC, although a majority of patients will select a volume between 250CC and 400CC. Our clinic can provide sizers for a “try on the session” so that you can actually see and feel how different implants would look on your frame.

Pro tip: Try not to fixate of filling a particular size of bra cup. Cup size can vary widely between manufacturers, and it will also be affected by the diameter of your ribcage (your band size). You can bring in bras for sizing to give your surgeon a good idea of what you have in mind. Keep in mind that your New Jersey breast augmentation will enhance existing tissue, so women who begin with larger natural breasts may have very flattering results with an implant that is smaller, compared with an A-cup woman who needs a bigger implant to achieve the same cup size.

In addition to volume, implants vary in size by the width of the base, which ensures that your new breasts will look natural and proportionate to your frame.

What About Shape?

Saline and silicone gel implants are available in round and teardrop shapes. They each offer different benefits:

Round implants can add more fullness to the upper portion of the breast, and they will change their shape subtly depending on your position. They flatten out when you’re lying back and take on more of a teardrop shape when you are standing or sitting upright.

Teardrop implants are designed to emulate the natural shape of the breast, which is fuller in the lower portion than the top. This shape will be maintained even when you are leaning back or lying down because their gel is a bit firmer, and the teardrop option can be better for patients who have little of their own breast tissue but want results that look natural.

Consider Your Lifestyle

What activities do you do for fun? Do you exercise regularly? Breasts over a certain size can become cumbersome when you’re very physically active, particularly if you love to run or play sports that require agility.

You can also reflect on your personality and how much attention you enjoy. Realistically, larger implants frequently attract more attention. If you’re looking to boost your confidence and improve your body contour with a more subtle enhancement, you can still be sure that others will notice a change in how you carry yourself.

Whatever goals you have in choosing a New Jersey breast augmentation, and whatever size or shape of implant you want, our clinical team will be there to support you along the way. It’s an exciting process, and the final decision is always yours to make, so book your private medical consultation today to get expert advice that is tailored to you. Begin the conversation and start the journey to an enhancement that will help you look and feel your best.
