How Much Does Breast Size Change After Augmentation

Breast augmentation is an excellent procedure choice for women who are looking to enhance the size and volume of their breasts. This technique utilizes either artificial implants or fat grafting to achieve the desired volume increase. One key consideration that women who are looking forward to this procedure have is how much their breast size will change.

Dr. Ruston’s goal with breast enlargement surgery is to achieve a size increase that is perfect for a woman’s body frame and in line with their expectations. The plastic surgeon will listen to your concerns and understand your unique personal needs before going to the size drawing table.

Once the surgeon has a clear impression of what you are looking for, certain factors will be considered to determine a final size increment for your breast enlargement surgery.

Type of breast enlargement – the first consideration is the type of breast enlargement surgery desired. Women who have excess fat in other parts of the body and are only looking for a modest increase in breast size can benefit from fat transfer breast enlargement. On the other hand, women who need a significant size increase often go with implant breast surgery.

Breast implant considerations – the majority of breast implants are completed using artificial implants (saline, silicone, or gummy bear implants). Size is the primary factor to consider when comparing breast implants. This is usually measured in cubic centimeters (CC). The plastic surgeon will also discuss other implant characteristics such as:

  • Type – different types of breast implants may be suited for different needs.
  • Profile – this refers to the projection and base width of the implant.
  • Texture – breast implant surfaces can be either smooth or textured.
  • Shape – breast implants can be either round or tear-drop shaped.

During your initial breast enlargement consultation in Baton Rouge, your plastic surgeon will discuss all these options. Your natural breast shape and dimensions, symmetry, the width and contour of your rib cage, and how much natural breast tissue you have will also be factored in to determine a size that best meets your goals and expectations.
