When you’re planning breast augmentation, one of the most stressful factors can be picking the most suitable breast implant size. It’s not as easy as one-size-fits-all, so you may be concerned about choosing breast implants that are too small or too large.
Your board-certified cosmetic surgeon will assess your individual requirements at your initial consultation, but it’s always handy to have a few tips to help make picking your breast implant size a little easier.
Try a Selection of Outfits
You’re not going to wear just one outfit for the rest of your life, so don’t make the mistake of only taking one option to your consultation. A combo of your favorite comfy tank, typical workwear and a more formal outfit can give you a good idea of what those breast implant choices may look like in reality. Make sure to include a variety of fits, shapes and necklines.
Also, never underestimate the value of a simple white T-shirt. A humble cotton T-shirt is one of the best clothing options to let you see how different breast implant sizes and types affect your appearance.
Take an Honest Friend
If you have a great friend you can trust to be honest, take them along to your breast augmentation consultation too. Of course, the decision is yours to make, but a board-certified cosmetic surgeon and a trustworthy friend can be invaluable when choosing your breast implant size.
When picking your breast implant size, don’t lose sight of why you’re opting for breast augmentation and what you want to achieve.
Make Rice Sizers
One of the best hacks for visualizing breast implant size is DIY rice sizers. Using some dry rice and an old pair of nylon stockings or pantyhose, simply measure the desired amount into the stocking end, tie it off, then slip it into your normal bra. While not the most precise way you can predict your breast implant results, rice sizers can give you a reasonable preview of how different implant sizes might look on your frame.
