I’m feeling confused
(First picture is 450cc, second 415cc, third 385cc, last is current)
I have seen two PS and love the second. I have surgery scheduled with him in three weeks.
My goal is to not have the beach ball look...but to have a solid D cup.
First PS recommended 450cc
This PS says I could do 385 or 415 and still look pretty natural.
My concern is that not getting me as big as I want to be.
Do you think I could get away with 450? Or would I look too top heavy and obviously augmented? I’m so worried about ending up too small and unhappy.
I’m 5’7, 128 pounds, and BWD OF 11.7
Currently a deflated 34 A, breast-fed two kids
I'm SO GLAD you asked this question. Cup size is really tricky and varies from store to store so I usually won't speak in cup size ('cause I'll always be wrong).
385,415,450 are all going to give you a nice amount of volume. At 5'7" your torso can handle a lot without looking top heavy. Here's the thing that's hard to believe: there is not much difference in those volumes. Truly you would need to go up or down by about 100 cc in order to actually perceive a volume difference on implant exchange. Thus I think about it like a head game with your mind.
Truth1: 99% of patients wonder if they should have gone bigger (my guess is likely to justify the hassle, pain, and expense of the surgery itself--it's gotta be WORTH it)
Truth2: Not much difference--only mm's--between those 3 sizes.
Truth3: You'll be happier upon reflection thinking, "I sure am glad I didn't pick the 385 because that would REALLY be too small" than you would "Man I knew it, I should have gone with the 450!!!".
So when choosing between a range I always suggest to choose the largest of them.
Best of luck!
I would be honored to see you at my office in Raleigh, NC!
