Breast Implant Sizing Consultation Minneapolis

Breast augmentation is a safe option to get larger or shapelier breasts. But while considering breast enlargement, the number one decision after choosing a surgeon is the choice of implant size. Breast implant sizes vary widely, so you should be able to find an implant to suit your needs. To determine your ideal breast implant size, we’ll need to consider factors such as these:

  • Your body proportions
  • Your body tissue
  • Your current breast size
  • The look you want to achieve

Cup Size Comparisons

Although sharing your preferred cup size is useful for communicating your desires to Dr. Landis, aiming for a specified cup size in breast augmentation is not common practice. The inconsistency among bra sizes and manufacturers makes cup size a useless measurement for these purposes.

Breast Implant Sizes

Breast implants are measured in milliliters, with common sizes ranging from 200 to 600 ml. As you go larger, the implant will generally increase in diameter and projection.

Be Proportional

The most attractive results are achieved when patient and surgeon take the time to evaluate body proportions before choosing an implant size. Breast implants that are not proportional with the rest of your features can look unnatural. Super large implants are also thought to carry a higher risk for displacement. Many patients say that to get a better idea of proportional implant size, it is useful to view before and after photos featuring women of a similar body type.

Be Straightforward

If your desire is to increase breast size significantly, be straightforward about telling Dr. Landis. Communicating your goals and desires will make it easier for the doctor to ensure you are satisfied with your breast augmentation.

Dr. George Landis provides you with essential information and the necessary tools to help you choose an appropriate size before the surgery based on your unique anatomy and desired results. He will help you visualize how your new, enhanced breasts will appear after surgery and make recommendations designed to help you get the look you want.

Minneapolis Breast Implant Surgeon, Dr. Landis, Helps You Choose the Right Size

During your consultation, Dr. Landis will discuss in detail all you need to know about breast augmentation surgery. You will learn what type of breast implants will suit you (silicone gel filled or saline filled) and the size and shape of the implants available. Dr. Landis will also help you choose the ideal type of incision, implant placement technique and anesthesia method that is safest for you.

Breast Implant Sizing Consultation

Once he completes your physical examination, Dr. Landis, discusses implant sizing. He helps you to decide considering the following two factors:

  1. Dimensional planning
  2. Gel Implant Sizing system

Dimensional planning – The measurements of your chest wall are taken. Also, the breast dimensions including the height, width and current dimensions of each breast form the basis of dimensional planning. Based on these measurements, the implant size is recommended. This will give you a unique breast implant that is suited for your body frame. Even your fitness levels and other relevant criteria are taken into consideration. It is you who will decide what you are comfortable with.

Gel Implant Sizing system – During the preliminary breast implant consultation, you will be provided with an option to “try on” a variety of implant shapes and sizes. You can also visualize the possible outcomes of your surgery which helps you to get that perfect size to give you the shape that you longed for.

This way your preferences are known and you can then pick a range of implants that will “fit” just right to give a soft natural fuller look.
