Choosing breast implants is an important and exciting part of the breast augmentation process. Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Rob Kessler advises all breast augmentation patients to take the time to research their breast implant options thoroughly before finalizing their decision. Here, he shares a few things to keep in mind when choosing the best implants for your body and goals.

Forget about the Bra Size

When describing your ideal breast implant size, referring to a specific bra-cup size is a good starting point. However, not all bras fit the same, so it’s best not to get attached to a particular bra-cup size. Instead, look for an implant size and shape that makes you look and feel good. Find photos of women whose breast size and shape you like, and bring them to your initial consultation. This can help your plastic surgeon get a better idea of your aesthetic goals.

Look in the Mirror

The size of your breasts affects your overall appearance. This is why it is important to take your body type (height, weight, shoulder and hip width) into consideration when choosing your breast implants. If you are tall with broad shoulders, you may opt for a bigger implant than someone who is shorter with narrower shoulders.

Try Them On for Size

Visualizing is key. At the Newport Beach plastic surgery practice of Dr. Rob Kessler, we offer a full set of breast implant sizers that you can try on during your initial consultation. This will allow you to visualize what your results will look like with different sizes. To get a better idea of your projected results, bring in a few wardrobe selections, including tops, a dress and a bathing suit.
