Tips on Choosing the Right Breast Implant Size

By: Dr. Rolando Morales


Breast augmentation has helped countless women increase their confidence and sense of femininity. But when it comes to breast implants, one size does not fit all. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales has the expertise to help you determine what implant type, size, and shape best fits your body and lifestyle. Simply call Morales Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX to start the process.

Below, we have summarized some of our best tips for choosing breast implants so you can make informed decisions about your surgery.

Tip #1: Ask your friends

The first step on your cosmetic journey is to discuss breast implants with friends or family members who have already undergone breast augmentation. Ask about the size of their implants and if they are happy with their end results. Learning from their experience as a patient can give you a general idea of what to expect from your specific procedure.

Tip #2: Educate yourself about the process

You can kick-start your breast augmentation research by viewing our website and gallery page. Morales Plastic Surgery frequently posts photos of real patients who have undergone breast surgery with Dr. Morales in Houston, as well as a selection of their testimonials.

Once you have an idea of what breast augmentation will entail, it's time to schedule a consultation. A qualified surgeon will learn about your goals and explain the various types of implants available.

While it may be helpful to describe your goals in terms of desired bra size, this is not a reliable way to determine the necessary implant size. This is because bra manufacturers have very different sizing methods. Additionally, cup size can vary depending on the brand.

Tip #3: Learn about implant types

There are two types of breast implants to choose from. Silicone implants are the most studied implant in the human body and are designed to be safe and extremely durable. They are filled with a cohesive gel that gives your breasts form and shape. Saline implants have the same outer coating as silicone implants, but the inside is filled with water. Implants are normally placed behind the chest muscle for a naturally enhanced look.

Tip #4: Have realistic expectations about results

Everyone has a unique body that changes due to factors like pregnancy, age, and weight loss. This means breast augmentation will affect you differently as well. Based on whether you want natural results or a more augmented look, Dr. Morales can make recommendations about the type and size of implant we feel will suit your body.

About 1 in 10 women at our clinic say they wish they had gone bigger in terms of implant size. This is why it's crucial to have an open dialogue with a skilled surgeon who can make recommendations based on your goals. Dr. Morales works with you to ensure that surgery is performed safely and that it results in breasts that look and feel great.
