What Size Breast Implant Will Make Me A Full B Cup?

Q: Dr. Eppley. I went online and looked at your breast implant pictures. As I can tell it looks GREAT. I have been looking at different work from different doctors. I am a very small A. What do you suggest? What type of implant do you recommend for me? What is the total price? Do you have any financing available for people like me? I really want this bad! For a very long time. I feel unsure about my body and the way I look. I am going to be 32 and I have 2 kids. I have always wanted larger breasts ever since I was in school. Can you help me?

A:  What would make you look like a full B cup would depend on numerous factors including the base width diameter of your breast, tightness of your overlying breast skin, and your envisionment of what a full B cup is. Since I have no images of you, I will have to assume your base breast width is likely in the 11 to 13 cms. range. This would make an implant in the range of 250cc to 350cc a likely possibility. That would have to be determined by an examination and some images of breast augmentations that you like. Given your described financial situation, you would be best served by a saline breast implant which can be done at a lower cost than silicone breast implants. Total costs are in the range of around $ 4,700.
