Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic enhancement procedure performed in Los Angeles today. Many [category_name] women choose this operation for a variety of reasons and are very happy with the immediate and long-term results. Once making the decision to go ahead with the enhancement, a woman must then decide what size she would like. Ultimately, this should be a candid conversation between the woman and her surgeon, but we will review a few points to consider in this article.

The first point to consider is what you want the final result to look like. Consider perusing photos of models and even Playboy and find women with a physical body shape and frame that is similar to your own. Print or clip out photos of breast sizes and shapes that you like to take along to your doctor’s appointment. Breast augmentation is a very personal decision. The final cup size should make you feel comfortable in your new body and proud of the results. When looking at photos, it is a must to review your surgeon’s before and after gallery. He or she should have a wide variety of photos to help show you what the final results will look like and keep your expectations realistic.

Once you have found a few photos of a particular breast size that you like, the next step is to try on the new size. Many women get ready for breast augmentation by utilizing removable implants or baggies in their bras and getting a good feel for the new shape and size. Some surgeons have implants that are shaped and weighted to be similar to the final product that you can borrow for a few days or a week. You can also use a plastic baggie or nylon pantyhose filled with rice or bird seed. Try on your clothes over the pretend implants and wear them around the house or out in public to see how you feel. How is the weight on your back? Do you like your new silhouette? Would you go bigger or smaller?

It is important to keep in mind that different cup sizes will look different on each woman. Some of the factors that contribute to varying appearances include chest and ribcage shape, breast shape, dimension and volume, and how much your skin stretches. Skin stretch may be affected by age, previous pregnancies, and weight gain or loss.

Some final things to keep in mind when choosing breast augmentation size have to do with safety and symmetry. Ensure the surgeon fills the implant as full as possible, but not so full that they will risk rupture with the smallest jostle. Overfilled implants give the skin a nice taut look, but are at a higher risk of damage with pressure. You also want to ensure that both breasts are symmetrical looking. If you currently have breasts that are asymmetrical, your physician will want to keep this in mind when placing and filling the implants. He or she can correct for naturally asymmetry.

Updating Your Look

Consider going with the smaller breast implant (between 125cc and 500cc - cc stands for cubic centimeters) for that perkier look. This conservative one can help you feel better about yourself with a subtle change.

The lift and increase in size is more natural, with many different options regarding skin type, shape, original size, and desired effects. Many mothers prefer this procedure to combat the results of breast feeding, and other women prefer it to better fill out clothing without anyone having to know that they've had surgery of any kind.

If you desire a more natural appearance, stay on the small side. While there are some seriously skilled surgeons that have the know-how to make almost any breast augmentations of any size look fairly realistic, there is a limit. When the size increases, so does the unlikely-natural appearance. If you want the larger implants, you've committed to a serious change in your appearance.

Making the Statement

In most cases, 600-700cc will accomplish a woman's goal to gain a significant amount of size and fill a DD cup. This is considered the normal range for large implants, but some women want to have the largest possible enhancement they can have.

These women sometimes request foreign material ranging from 750cc all the way to 1200cc (the legal limit). If this is your type of surgery, you need to look for someone that specializes in larger implants. Before and after photos are commonly found in the office, and this is a good way to get an up-close look at the surgeon's skill level.

As with all breast augmentations, serious complications may occur and they will generally worsen as the size of the implant increases. You should be fully aware of all possible problems before surgery, and this is not to scare you.

This also does not mean that you should jump off the operating table, as breast augmentations have helped many women achieve their appearance goals. You must strictly follow your doctor's orders when it comes to both short-and long-term recovery for ideal results.

Something that all patients need to consider before going into that first consultation is why they're going in the first place. The doctor will be asking you this question, so search your goals for any signs of self-image insecurity.

Is it to impress a spouse or significant other, or show off to your friends? Your only goal should be to simply enhance your looks.
