Are you considering breast augmentation in Corpus Christi? If so, one of the biggest questions on your mind might be, “How do I know what size implants to get?” Choosing an implant size for a breast augmentation is a very difficult, and personal decision. Here is some advice from Corpus Christi plastic surgeon Dr. Rose on how to pick the right implant size for you.
Do Your Research.
No one, not even Corpus Christi plastic surgeon Dr. Rose, can tell you what size breasts you’ll be happy with. At the end of the day, you’re the only one who can decide how big you want your breasts to be when you get your breast augmentation. Dr. Rose recommends that to decide what size implants to get for your breast augmentation, that you do your research. Look at photos and magazines to find images that display your dream results. Think carefully about what you want your physique, and curves, to look like. And bring these images and magazines with you to your consultation with Dr. Rose, so that he can help you determine what cup size will give you the look you are dreaming of.
Try Out Our MENTOR® Volume Sizing System.
To help you match your ideal breast augmentation results with the implant size you need to achieve that look, Dr. Rose uses the MENTOR Volume Sizing System. This system of highly cohesive implants will allow you to “try on” different size and shape implants, and see and feel the results. With the MENTOR system, you can get realistic expectations of what your breast augmentation results will look like.
Be Honest and Forthcoming About Your Expectations.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make during a breast augmentation consultation is to not fully voice your opinion. Dr. Rose doesn’t want to make the decision about your implant size for you; he wants to partner with you. Make sure that you are clear and direct about what you want out of breast augmentation surgery so that Dr. Rose can work with you to find the ideal implant size and shape to give you the look you desire.
How Do I Know if Breast Augmentation Surgery is Right for Me?
