Choosing the Right Breast Implant Size: Why It Matters

117559288-xsThere are so many choices to consider when it comes to enhancing your overall appearance. When it comes to plastic surgery, even those little decisions wind up meaning a lot. This is why Dr. Darrell Perkins takes extra care in the planning phases of every surgery. This careful attention means that patients throughout the greater Kogarah and Sydney area are able to achieve excellent surgical results that look exceptional.

This level of planning is especially important when it comes to enhancing the size and shape of the breasts. A well-done breast augmentation surgery enhances not just the bustline but all curves in the process. Of course, the size of the breast implants plays an important part in this, but so do other matters. Let’s consider this issue right now.

Considering Your Needs: Every Patient Is Different

Before even considering the size of the breast implants, it’s important for Dr. Perkins to consider the natural body contour and body type of the patient. To get the best results from surgery, it will be ideal for the breast implants to complement the patient’s curves and overall frame. Making choices that improve proportion and appearance will be key.

Bigger Breast Implants Are Not Always Better

While big breast implants do make a noticeable impact, they are not always best for the patient. Sometimes the results will seem very unnatural, and while the breasts may be larger, the end results will not necessarily be better. It’s important to keep in mind that cup size alone is not going to improve your overall appearance.

Smaller Breast Implants Are Not Necessarily Best Either

On the other side of the issue, playing too conservatively with breast implant size may not be the best idea either. Given, the size of the breasts will be increased even with small implants, yet they may not be increased to the level that the patient wishes. Rather than undergo another surgery, it’s best to get the results right on the first go.

Other Breast Implant Factors to Consider

There are other facets to breast implants that can have a major impact on your overall appearance and the results of your breast augmentation surgery. These include:

  • Breast Implant Profile – The profile (forward projection) of the implants can make as big a difference as the size of the implants, which is important to consider with regard to complementing existing bone structure and body contour.
  • Breast Implant Composition – Saline and silicone implants yield different results in terms of appearance and texture.
  • Breast Implant Shape – Rounded and teardrop breast implants can have a subtle but dramatic impact on the overall results of surgery.

Carefully Tailoring Treatment to Your Needs

Since each patient has different needs and different concerns and different personal goals, Dr. Perkins will carefully consider all such matters during the consultation and planning process. Before implementing any sort of treatment plan, he will go over all options with the patient to ensure that the patient is able to make empowered choices about their cosmetic surgery needs.
