Breast implant is a prosthesis used in breast augmentation to increase breast size and volume of breasts and give them a fuller appearance. However, determining the ideal implant size to achieve the desired breast size can be a perplexing task.

There are certain things to understand about breast implants size to achieve natural-looking results with breast augmentation.

Understanding Breast Implants Size and Types: Finding Your Ideal Fit

Let’s address the differences between breast implants size (measured in cc) and cup size, along with exploring the various types of breast implants. We’re here to help you find the ideal implant fit for your needs and desired results.

1. Bigger isn’t always better

Breast implants size matters! Keep in mind that choosing a larger implant can have drawbacks, such as restrictions in daily activities and the potential for sagging breasts and discomfort. It may even require a future breast lift to address these issues.

2. Your implant and breast size aren’t the same

Understanding the distinction: Breast implants size (measured in cc) is not the same as cup size. Discover more about different types of breast implants to make informed decisions for your augmentation journey.

3. How does implant size affect your cup size?

 The choice of breast implants size will influence your cup size, but the relationship between the two is not a direct correlation. Factors such as your existing breast tissue and body proportions will also impact the final outcome.

4. How to choose your ideal breast implant for natural-looking breasts?

Before understanding the selection of breast implants size, it’s important to learn a few more things about implants.

a). Different sizes of breast implants: volume, diameter, and profile

  • Breast implants size vary to suit different body types and preferences. The size is determined by volume (cc), diameter, and profile.
  • Volume: Implants range from 150-200cc for smaller sizes, 300-350cc for popular sizes, and over 400cc for larger sizes.
  • Diameter: The base width of the implant affects breast shape and varies from 7.4cm to 17.2cm.
  • Profile: Implant projection from the chest wall differs. Low/moderate profiles offer minimal projection, moderate profiles provide a natural look, and high profiles offer maximum projection.

Understanding these measurements is crucial when selecting the right implant fit for your needs and consulting with a plastic surgeon is recommended.

b). Importance of implant profiles in breast’s appearance.

Implant profile plays a significant role in achieving the desired breast appearance:

  • Low Profile Implants: These implants have a flatter appearance with minimal projection. They are ideal for wider chests, as they slightly push the central part of the breast outward, creating a softer and flatter look.
  • Moderate Profile Implants: These implants provide a natural-looking projection and are suitable for smaller or narrower chests. They offer a balanced enhancement that complements the body proportions.
  • High Profile Implants: These implants offer maximum projection, resulting in very round and prominent breasts. They are ideal for narrow chests, as they push the central and lower parts of the breast the most, creating a more pointed and rounded shape.

c). The principle of projection also applies to different implant diameters. As the volume of the implant increases, so does the level of projection. It’s important to consider both the implant profile and diameter to achieve the desired breast shape and overall aesthetic outcome.

I am an Italian woman and I would like to share my amazing experience with Dr. Faisal. When I decided to have my breast augmentation I visited several doctors, and I must say that every time I was more and more confused because I always received different advice and I felt a little lost. However, I decided to continue searching and found Dr. Faisal's profile on google, read some of his reviews and contacted him for a consultation. For the first time I really felt listened to, where I wasn't a "30 min visit" to sell the operation, but it was me as a person. Dr. Faisal asked me many questions to make me feel at ease and understand what my goals were (there was no time, he was just listening to me). I had finally left the studio happy, and sure he was the right surgeon. I want to clarify that I am a super sporty girl (I do running, CrossFit, kickboxing, tennis hiking), and also during the appointment, for me the most important aspect was to obtain a natural effect and be able to continue to do my sports activities as before. So I took a couple of weeks where every time I needed clarification he asked me to stop by the studio to explain me everything in detail! After my thousand dramas I decided the date of the operation :) it was a Friday. The day after I went out for a walk (Dr. please don't read, that I promised you I would be rested). On Monday I was already back to work and on Wednesday I could already drive. As for sport, I followed everything the Dr. advised me and after about 3 weeks I was back to running a bit. After about 5 weeks I was back to doing some weights. Now after 3 months I'm back to doing all my sports. I was already super happy with the result after the operation, now is absolutely incredible. I hope my experience can help other people because in addition to professionalism, he is a doctor who truly listens and cares about the person's happiness and I can't recommend him enough.

I highly recommend Dr Faisal to anyone thinking of undergoing surgery. I had a few consultations with other Drs but instantly i had a really good feeling when discussing everything with Dr Faisal. He really took the time to listen and understand exactly what I wanted to achieve. He reassured all the way through the process and made me feel so at ease. I had done extensive research (15 years) before I decided to do the surgery of Breast Augmentation. Dubai can be a minefield trying to find the right surgeon but he came highly recommended from many people and I now know why. I’m so happy with my results.

I had the best experience with Dr.Faisal for my 360 lypo surgery. Starting from my very first consultation in which he was very welcoming and open to listening to what I was looking to achieve. He really took my case with all care and professionalism, and I couldn’t be happier with what we achieved. Beyond his professional capabilities, his after care and support post operation has been second to none. I highly recommend Dr.Faisal to anyone who is looking to do any cosmetic work- minor or major in Dubai, there is no need to travel abroad looking for better doctors or prices ..etc. Dr.Faisal’s procedure and care have been the utmost best in class.

I decided to undergo lower eyelid surgery with Dr. Faisal Salim after many years of having a complex and I can truly say that it was one of the best choice I've made. Knowing Dr. Faisal for some years I had plenty of faith that he would do a great job. His care to detail, precision, and overall perfectionist that he is are what made me put my trust in him to perform my surgery and it shows as I'm highly happy with the result!

I am 27 yrs old and I had a desire of getting larger and proportionate breasts since my younger age. When I researched surgeons and was looking through many, many galleries of results, I wasn’t impressed by almost any of the doctor's work. After a long search, I came across the website of Dr. Faisal Salim, read his reviews, and looked at his results. I was so happy and just knew i had to do a consultation with him! I spoke with his clinic first on the phone and she gave me so much information even before booking a consultation with a doctor. From the first tele conversation, I was so impressed, and comfortable and felt that they cared about me as a patient. I went to my consultation where he explained every part of the procedure and answered all my questions. As we have a family history of breast cancer, Dr Faisal referred me to do an ultrasound mammogram, along with a health screening and tests to check i was a proper candidate for surgery. When I was cleared I had my surgery in October 2021, and have had many checkups with Dr. Faisal since he is very involved and wanting to make sure i have the best results. He and his team are better than I could have imagined. I have had a lot of friends, and even strangers ask me to know my doctor's name because they are wondering about my result. I recommend him to every female out there wanting the Best Results!!!

I had been thinking about getting a tummy tuck for years but I was so afraid of doing it. I had been searching for various surgeons because I knew it is an extensive surgery. But when I met Dr. Faisal Salim, I just knew he was the one I was searching for. After my first consultation with him, I got a confidence of doing tummy tuck surgery. It has been 6 months since my procedure and the result is amazing. He and his staff were welcoming, friendly, attentive and answered to all my questions in a positive way. I had a wonderful experience at his clinic, and his staffs were more caring. Thank you for your entire support and caring you had given me during my days in your clinic
