Proportional sizing: The best way to find the right sized implant is to use measurements of your breast base width. Forget about cc's. Get an implant where the width of the implant matches the width of your breast ( or is slightly smaller). This will fit your frame, and look proportional. Next, look at the different "profiles" to pick the shape & fullness you like best.

How large do u want?: Cc's are a measurement of volume. For reference a tablespoon is 15cc, one ounce = 28.5 cc. Therefore your average 12 ounce can of soda is about 355 cc (= milliliters or ml). This happens to be close to the average i plant size requested (~325-375cc). In one study it took about 260cc to go from an average a cup to a b and about 370 to got to a c cup.

Depends on your siZe: In your initial consultation, your plastic surgeon will take several measurements of your breast. That will give him or her a range of implants that would fit your breast. Next is discussion with you to determine your goals for size. A good rule of thumb is 175cc = 1 cup size. So a 350cc implant should increase approximately 2 cup sizes.

Breast augmentation: The size on an implant to augment the breast will vary based on the body of the patient. The size to go from a 32b to 32 c is different than going from. 36b to 36c. Measurements, sizes and type of imp, ants all effect the answer you are looking for. Speak to your plastic surgeons.

Breast Implant Size Choice: In my experience the best answer would be to have a board certified plastic surgeon examine and measure you. Then bring in photos (see plastic surgeon web sites) demonstrating what you would like to look like. He can then determine the number of cc's you would need.

Do your homework: You should schedule a couple consultations with plastic surgeons that are certified by the american board of plastic surgery. Then chose the one that you are most comfortable with. Make it clear what you desire. Trust the judgement of your plastic surgeon in determining appropriate implant size.

Apporoximately: 250 cc per desired increase in cup size. Cup size is not really standardized very well so this is really a rule of thumb.The implant DIMENSIONS (width, height and projection) are equally, if not more, important.
