Breast Implants: How Large Can You Go?

Breast Implants: How large can you go?

The Biggest Breast Augmentation Question

In a breast-obsessed society, for some ladies, bigger boobs usually equates with better. But is it really? That depends on your individual taste, your body frame and type, and the “look” you’re aiming for.

Clearly fashion and life style, affordability and what is now considered ‘attractive’ is influencing the push for bigger boobs.

Interestingly, women who seek breast enlargement, are requesting for bigger implants: breast implant size has doubled from 180cc to around 300cc in 30 year.

Are The Biggest Breast Implants Better?

When choosing the size of your implants, consider how your new breast will affect your lifestyle—this needs to be extensively discussed pre-surgery.

Committed athletes and runners, for example, should give careful consideration to any plastic surgery procedure that could impact your ability in sport, the gym, or whatever your brand of competition takes place. Physically active young women are advised to keep the implant size small to moderate.

The added weight and volume to the chest can affect athletic performance and the underneath tissue structure. If the implants are too wide, for example, they can
 interfere with movement of the arms as the person is running. 

Boob Job: Bra Cup Size & Breast Implant Size differs:

  • Although bra cups are sized A, B, C and up, breast implants sizing differs–welcome to the world of cubic centimetres, or cc for short.
  • Cubic centimetres are the metric volume measurement used to define the capacity of a breast implant. One cubic centimetre equals a millilitre, which is the volume measurement used in the medical world.
  • Breast implant sizes for both saline and silicone range from 120cc to 850cc.
  • The difference in volume between a 300cc implant and a 360cc implant is just two ounces/56.6gms.

Choosing Your Best Breast Implant Size

Obviously, your original breast size will influence the implant size you choose. If you are an A cup you’ll need more cc’s to take you to a C cup than a woman who starts with a B cup.

The final choice is yours…after all, you’re the one who will be living with this decision.
