Breast Augmentation: You don’t HAVE to go big
Making the decision to have breast augmentation is one we know you don’t take lightly. You have likely wanted more voluptuous curves for a long time; it’s time you realized your dreams. Now that you have made that decision, you need to decide what size you would like your new breasts to be following breast augmentation. How big is too big? How do you decide?
What Kind of Look are you Hoping to Achieve with Breast Augmentation?
When sculpting your new curves, there are many factors which should play a part in your decision. The first is your body type. If you’re petite, going “big” might not be the best option for you. The natural curves and proportions of your body are an important consideration. You want the finished product to look shapely and attractive. Dr. Malek has extensive experience performing breast augmentation and can advise you what size will look beautiful on your body and create the feminine contours you envision.
What is Your Lifestyle?
Your voluptuous new curves will be a part of everything you do once your breast augmentation surgery is complete. If you have an active lifestyle, it is important to consider how that will be affected by your new breasts. The larger your implants are, the greater the impact will be on your physical activity. High-impact activities such as running, jogging, or even dancing can cause large implants to feel uncomfortable, heavy, and in the way. It is important to discuss your lifestyle with Dr. Malek, so he can advise you which implant size would suit you, your body, and your lifestyle.
Risks Associated with Larger Implants
If you choose overly large implants, there are risks involved. These include stretching of the breast tissue, ripples underneath the skin, and thinning of the tissue. Overly large breasts may age prematurely. Additionally, oversized implants pose a risk of stretching the skin unnaturally and creating aesthetic problems. Since we know your goal in seeking breast augmentation is to create attractive, more feminine curves, it’s is important to avoid going too big when selecting your breast implants.
What is the Right Implant Size for You?
In the end, breast size is a very personal decision that will be made by you and our board-certified plastic surgeon. We encourage you to find photos of breast profiles that have the aesthetic appearance that you admire on others. Think about how you want your clothes to appear on your body, and the proportions you would like your new breasts to have with your other body features such as your waistline and hips. The size of your ribcage and the width of your current breasts are also important figure issues to consider when choosing the size of your implants.
Ultimately, your vision for your body is what is most important when considering the outcome of breast augmentation. Dr. Marc Malek will thoughtfully discuss with you your goals for breast augmentation, listening to your concerns so you can create a plan for your breast enhancement that creates a result that you are happy with for your lifetime.
