What Size Breast Implants Should I Get?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am looking to get breast implants. I am 5’ 9” inches tall and weigh 165 lbs. I am currently a B cup and would like to go to a C. My husband wants me to get DDs. I am not completely opposed to that. I just want to make sure they will be proportional to my body. How do you go about making sure that the breast implant size is not too big and looks disproportionate to the rest of your body?

A: As for choosing breast implant size, I use volumetric sizers in the office to help me the best choice for you. We do not choose breast implants by cup sizes since they do not come that way. Rather they come in ccs (250cc, 350cc etc) and the goal is to see what breast look you prefer and feel is proportionate. Whatever cup size that ends up being afterwards is unknown and largely irrelevant since that is just a number. What you ultimately care about is how your breasts look whatever the numbers turn out to be. (volume or cup size) The look of the augmented breasts are far more important than any numbers.
