When women ask me about breast augmentation in Boston, they often assume that they can determine out the right implant size by adding a cup size to their current bra. The reality, though, is more complex.
Implant size and shape
Determining the right size for my patients considering breast implants in Boston involves several different steps. I evaluate each woman’s current shape to determine which implant size is proportionate to her body and related factors. I also discuss each patient’s goals for the appearance of her breasts after augmentation, which takes into account both the desired size and shape.
In addition to improving the size of your breasts, this procedure, also known as augmentation mammaplasty, can help with concerns such as sagging. Various factors, such as aging, pregnancy, or weight loss, can cause a woman’s breasts to droop and lose volume. Breast augmentation also can improve that problem, resulting in a perkier, more youthful shape.
Although this process may seem involved, as a board-certified experienced plastic surgeon, I know that this thorough evaluation is needed to determine which implant size and shape best suits each woman.
