Take Your Lifestyle into Account
One of the most important things to take into account is your lifestyle. The implant size that you choose should be in accordance with your lifestyle. For example, if you have an active lifestyle and you are involved in sports or running, you may want to consider if it would be suitable for you to carry bigger breasts with implants through the course of your activities. Plastic Surgery of any kind is a big decision and Dr. Kotis wants you to weigh all your options.
Your Current Breast Size Matters
You can’t simply wear an implant over your breast. You will have to get it surgically placed inside your breast. For that to happen, the implant needs to be covered by the available breast tissue. The size of your breast determines the amount of breast tissue you have. Some implants may just be too big to be covered by the breast tissue you have available.
Getting the Symmetry Right
Breast augmentation isn’t always about the bigger you can go; the better. Sometimes, it is just about making sure that your breasts are the same size and have the same symmetry. In fact, Dr. John A. Kotis can now make use of different implant sizes for different breasts to make sure the symmetry between the breasts is maintained.
Trying the Implant on for Size
You can’t actually decide on a breast implant size without actually seeing how it looks on your body. For this, you will typically be given a special bra that can accommodate a number of different breast implant sizes for you to check. The easiest way is to look at yourself in the mirror during the process.
