When you have decided that you would like to go through with breast augmentation surgery, you might wonder how large you should go. This is largely a personal decision, but you you may feel that you wouldn't look right if your breasts are too large.
Also, having large breasts can place a strain on your back. Some women find that very large breasts can get in the way of physical activities. Luckily, there are guidelines for getting your breasts to the right size.
The Initial Results After Surgery Aren't the Final Results
If you are not happy with the appearance of your breasts initially, keep in mind that the implants will be somewhat high initially and will then drop. Therefore, you should decide on whether you would like to modify your implants only after they have settled in the position they will be in. Your breasts will also be firm for a while after the surgery, but will soften up.
The Perfect Breasts are Subjective
First, consider whether you want your beasts to look natural, look slightly augmented or look obviously augmented. Some forms of breast augmentation surgery can make it obvious that you have had your breasts modified, but you might prefer this look.
Breasts that might seem too large for one woman might not seem large enough for another. For example, if you are a petite woman, you may want breasts that are smaller than if you were a tall and broad-chested woman. Many women find that when they have full breasts, this looks very attractive. But when the breasts are too large, their bodies can look out of proportion.
Different Surgeons Can Produce Different Results
Once you have determined how large you want your breasts to be, you should look at the before and after photos of a breast augmentation specialist you are considering working with. If you believe that the results he or she has produced do not look natural or are too large, you might want to consider a different breast augmentation surgeon.
Make sure to communicate with your surgeon about exactly what you want. Consider showing pictures of women who have the type of breasts you would like to have. Also, ask the surgeon about what can be done if you do not like the results of the breast augmentation surgery. He or she may be able to replace the implants with smaller ones to achieve results you would prefer.
