Breast Augmentation — All About the Cup Size, Right? Wrong!
Many women (and probably most men) believe that breast augmentation surgery is only successful if you can increase your cup size as much as possible. Go big or go home, right? What is the point of having the surgery if you’re not going for dramatic results? And don’t you get more of your money’s worth by going for a bigger implant size? However, bigger is not always better. We all know women that have had boob jobs and now look unnaturally top heavy. Maybe their petite frame wasn’t meant to carry that amount of weight. Or maybe they stand out as fake when surveyed on the beach in their bikini next to naturally busted women. Depending on the reason for your breast augmentation surgery, choosing the biggest implant size may not be your best choice.
In fact, many women enjoy dramatic changes in their figure with even modest cup size increases as long as the overall placement and symmetry is done properly. If you want the results of your breast augmentation surgery to look and feel natural, then you should have a few serious discussions with your physician about which cup size is best for you. It is vitally important to ensure your plastic surgeon is listening to both your concerns and idealistic expectations. He or she should be able to answer all of your questions while keeping you informed of risks or potential drawbacks.
It makes sense that women who are looking for breast implant surgery are obviously looking to increase the size of their breasts. But that doesn’t necessarily mean biggest is best. For example, a petite woman with a small frame and a very modest A cup may be perfectly happy simply moving up to a large B or small C. For other women that are starting out as Bs and Cs, they will want to go a little larger. And for still other women in a professional industry such as dancing or modeling, the biggest cup size available may really be what they’re looking for. But it is usually not wise for an A cup to try and jump to a DD.
Reasons for modest increases in breast size are varied and often depend on the goals of the individual. Dr. Pittman and his team of friendly professionals are very careful to communicate in depth with their patients to ensure the ultimate goal for obtaining breast augmentation is known so that they can tailor the procedure to fit the needs of the patient. It is vitally important to take this time up front in order to ensure you are satisfied with the results of your procedure directly after the surgery and for years to come.
