How to Choose Your New Breast Implant Size for Breast Augmentation Surgery

By: Dr. Algie LaBrasca


Breast augmentation is more than just a cosmetic treatment. For many women who are unhappy with their figure, breast enhancement can help create a renewed sense of confidence and satisfaction.

At LaBrasca Plastic Surgery, we know that it's natural to have questions and concerns when considering breast surgery — especially when it comes to selecting breast implant size. Dr. Algie LaBrasca has years of experience performing breast augmentation for DuBois, PA patients and is happy to answer any questions you might have. If you're thinking about creating a new look for yourself with breast augmentation, here are some tips for choosing the implant size that is right for you.

How to choose a breast implant size that looks natural

A key goal in breast enhancement is to achieve a look that's both appealing and natural. Dr. LaBrasca emphasizes the importance of considering factors like body frame, existing breast tissue, and personal aesthetic goals. During your consultation, we'll discuss your options and help you select a breast implant size that harmonizes with the natural proportions of your body. This approach ensures that the enhancement looks like a natural part of you rather than an addition.

Choosing the right breast implant size for your lifestyle

Your lifestyle plays a crucial role in selecting the ideal breast implant size. Active individuals or those engaged in physically demanding occupations might prefer a more moderate size for comfort and ease of movement. Dr. LaBrasca works closely with patients to understand how different implant sizes can fit into and enhance their daily routines, ensuring a choice that complements both their physical and professional lifestyles. Whether you're a fitness enthusiast, a busy professional, or a parent juggling multiple responsibilities, there's an implant size that can align with your lifestyle needs.

Balancing comfort and curves

The quest for a shapelier silhouette should not compromise comfort. While larger implants might be tempting, they can sometimes lead to physical discomfort or issues like back pain. Dr. LaBrasca's approach is to find a balance between achieving your desired aesthetic look and ensuring long-term comfort. This careful consideration of both aspects ensures that patients enjoy the physical and psychological benefits of breast augmentation without any unnecessary discomfort.

How to prepare for breast surgery

Preparing for breast surgery is as important as the procedure itself. Dr. LaBrasca advises patients to undergo a thorough health evaluation, which is also a good time to openly discuss any concerns or questions. Understanding the surgical process, recovery, and post-operative care is crucial. This preparation phase also involves making lifestyle adjustments, such as arranging for help during the recovery period and taking time off from work. Being well-prepared can significantly impact the ease and success of both your breast surgery and the recovery process.
