The most subjective detail of Breast Augmentation is size. There is no mathematical formula or Breast Augmentation chart which allows you to calculate what size Breast Implant will be best for you.
Breast Implant Trial Sizes
Looking at before and after pictures online can help, especially if you are looking at women who started where you are starting, and who obtained a result you like. Your plastic surgeon may recommend increasing or decreasing your breast implant volume depending on your height and frame. The key is maintaining aesthetic proportions.
I’ve tried to review some of the key considerations here on the San Francisco Plastic Surgery Blog. Clicking on Breast Implant Options under the Breast Augmentation heading under Categories in the column to the left of this post, will link you with some helpful articles. Even so, there is no substitute for an in-person consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
High Strength Silicone Breast Implant Video
The following video is part 4 of 4 from a recent television appearance by me, Dr. Joseph Mele. During the show, I review the new gummy-bear, high strength, highly cohesive silicone gel breast implants that have been recently FDA approved. I also review Breast Augmentation in general, and answer some frequently asked question by viewers.
Please note, the (415) phone number featured in the video was for viewers to call in during the live show only.
