What’s the perfect breast implant size?

After the awesome eighties we had the minimal nineties where natural smaller breasts adorned the waif-like frame of models like Kate Moss. Then we swung to the ultra-glam days of the WAGs sporting large perfectly round breasts. But with Victoria Beckham opting for a more understated look these days, what’s a girl to do? How large do I go? Do I want teardrop or round?

Firstly, listen to your surgeon; a specialist breast surgeon will have treated hundreds of women of all shapes and sizes and will know pretty quickly what implant type is going to suit you. “But I’m paying” you may think. Yes indeed, any clinic should do their utmost to accommodate your wishes and give you that chest you’ve always dreamed of. However, in certain cases it is not medically advisable or even safe to go for certain looks. Your current breast size and chest/shoulder width are taken into account. You need to consider your health and wellbeing above all else, your surgeon will know what’s going to look and feel right and discuss this with you fully.

Communication is key. Don’t let anyone talk you into a size that you are not happy with. Be that friends, family, partners or even the surgeon. Don’t be afraid to get a second opinion, have a research on sites like Trustpilot or Realself. Weigh up all the information and make sure your decision is for you, after all it’s your body.

What do you do with your body? Your lifestyle is key. How active you are may play a part in your decision. If you play a lot of high impact sport you may not want large breasts getting in the way. That being said some bodybuilders get on perfectly well. Be sure to raise this at your consultation.

At Aurora Clinics part of The Private Clinic we pride ourselves on taking the time to go through all the options. Because in truth there is no ‘perfect’ implant size. You have to take into account your figure, the best implant shape for you and the look you are trying to achieve. Make sure you’re doing it for you and that you are 100% confident and comfortable with your surgeon, that you’ve researched the surgeon, the clinic, and have truly considered how your new breasts will suit you and your lifestyle. That way your final result will be perfect.  Perfect for you.
