The confusion between cup size and CCs can make choosing the size of your breast augmentation complicated. How do you know which measurement to use? And once you know, how do you decide what would look best? Use this information to help you demystify breast implant sizes and guide your decision.
Think Results, Not Numbers
Plastic surgeons get requests for specific measurements all the time. “I want a solid C cup.” “My friend had 375 CCs and looks great! I want those, too.” The issue with comparison here is that every body and every breast is unique. What looks great on your friend might not suit your body shape quite the same. When referencing pictures, try to find ones of women with similar body types as yours.
Not to mention, a C cup in one bra might not match the same size in another brand or style. Ditch your notions about numbers and focus on how you want to look.
Breast implants are measured in CCs, based on the volume of material in the implant itself.
Keep an Open Mind
When you have your breast augmentation consultation and you’re choosing a cup size for your breast implants, your plastic surgeon will have you “try on” sizers. These are implants you can place on your chest now that give you an idea of what that level of CCs might look like on your body. Keep an open mind when your plastic surgeon is suggesting sizes. Choose the best breast implants to help you achieve your goals, no matter the number attached to it.
The holiday season might sound far away right now, but it won’t be long before Christmas carols and New Year’s Eve parties are back.
If you’re planning breast enhancement and want to see results just in time for these special occasions, start thinking about your breast augmentation timeline now.
Careful planning now could help you enjoy the breasts of your dreams when you ring in the new year.
Start Searching for Your Plastic Surgeon Now
The first major step to check off your list is to find the right plastic surgeon for your breast augmentation. Start doing your research now, then schedule a consultation or two to help you narrow down your search.
When searching for a breast enhancement plastic surgeon, look for qualifications like:
- Board certification with the American Board of Plastic Surgery
- Memberships to accredited medical associations, such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons
- Before and after photos indicating extensive experience with breast augmentation
- Online reviews
- Friendly, helpful staff and a clean, organized office
It’s never too soon to schedule a consultation with your plastic surgeon to start planning your procedure.
Work Recovery Time into Your Breast Augmentation Timeline
Although many women feel up to going back to work within 7 to 10 days after getting breast implants, don’t expect to see your final results just yet. It can take 3 to 6 months to see your full outcome from breast augmentation, so give yourself some wiggle room between your procedure date and your big New Year’s plans.
One of the beauties of modern breast implants is that they can be extremely long-lasting. But that doesn’t mean that checking in with your breast augmentation surgeon at some point down the road isn’t still a good idea. If you’re wondering when your breast implants might have to be replaced, take a look at this quick timeline and some key tips for discussing breast augmentation revision with your plastic surgeon.
