Breast Augmentation Sizing

So you’ve decided to get a breast augmentation, good for you! Now you’re thinking about what size you want your new breasts to be. Most of our Costa Mesa plastic surgery clients explain to us how difficult it is to really understand what size cup they want because one bra manufacturer’s C cup may be another one’s B cup or vice versa. It’s true, unfortunately, there is no standardization of bra cup sizes. So trying to describe your desired breast size by cup size doesn’t really work too well.

We often have our Costa Mesa clients try on different implants inside their bras, under a tight shirt and look in the mirror. We want them to keep trying on different implants until they look in the mirror and are completely satisfied. Many clients come in thinking they know the implant volume they want based on what a friend had, but 300 cc’s on one person can look completely different on another depending on a lot of factors like the amount of breast tissue each individual has.

We find that it’s usually best to ignore implant numbers or cup sizes and find what you feel looks best in the mirror. In our experience, this is the best way we’ve met our Costa Mesa clients’ expectations with a breast augmentation in regards to size.

Regardless of the label size or volume size of the breast implants, the most important thing is how it all looks from head to toe. It’s important how you, the patient, sees yourself. Everyone has different taste and idea of what looks good for them.  One also has to take into account balance and proportion. I know it may sound overwhelming but as all our Costa Mesa clients will confirm, we will work together to find the right size to give you the look you want to achieve.
