Despite all the time that most cosmetic plastic surgeons spend, or should spend, with their breast augmentation patients to find the correct breast implant size, sometimes it’s just not what the patient wanted.
I should preface this little discourse by stating that over 95% of patients who want a change in their breast implant size want to go bigger. There is only a handful of patients I can remember in the 20 years I have been in practice who thought their implants were too big and wanted smaller breast implants or no implants at all!
Choosing the right breast implant size for augmentation
I have previously discussed the factors that your plastic surgeon must take into account when thinking of breast enlergement surgery with implants. These include:
- Height and weight
- Hip and chest circumference
- Droopiness of breasts
- Cultural factors
- Patient wishes (of course)
