Breast Implants by Cup Size

Before and After Photos

When considering Breast Augmentation to change bra cup size, it’s important to recognise that the visual outcome is influenced by a range of individual factors beyond implant volume. Our experienced plastic surgeons can guide patients in selecting an implant size that complements their body proportions. Below we provide before and after photos of patients who have undergone Breast Augmentation surgery and subsequently increased their bra cup size. These images showcase not only the visual changes patients have achieved but also detail the implant sizes employed. This shows how the same implant size can yield different results on different bodies.

Achieving Your Desired Bra Cup Size with Breast Implants: Understanding Individual Variations

It is important to understand that the visual impact of breast implant size can vary significantly from person to person and breast augmentation doesn’t have a direct correlation with specific bra cup sizes.

In the following sections, we will delve into the factors contributing to these variations and explain why emphasising results, rather than focusing solely on implant volume, is critical.

Visual Perception of Breast Implant Size

Understanding that Breast Augmentation is not just about the volume of the implant, but also about how it complements the body’s existing proportions, is essential.

Implant size is measured in cubic centimeters (cc), but results are influenced by factors like; breast width, chest wall anatomy, body fat percentage, skin elasticity, and muscle tone. As a result, a specific implant volume can have different results for different individuals.

Individual Body Characteristics

Each person’s body is unique, which means that even with the same implant size, results can differ significantly. Factors such as the existing breast tissue, chest width, ribcage shape, and overall body proportions play a role in how the implant sits and projects.

For instance, a 200cc implant on someone with a narrow chest might look different and be more prominent compared to someone with a broader chest, where the same implant might appear more modest.

Consultation with a Surgeon

Choosing the right breast implant size is a collaborative process between the patient and the surgeon. During a consultation, an experienced plastic surgeon will consider not only the cup size but also the patient’s unique body characteristics. They will assess factors like breast base width, nipple position, and skin quality to recommend an implant size that aligns with the patient’s preferences while maintaining body proportion.

To help patients understand how different implant sizes might look on their bodies, surgeons often use implant sizers during consultations. By inserting these sizers into a special bra patients are able to visualise the potential outcomes before making a decision. This step can be invaluable in managing expectations and choosing an implant size that aligns with the desired bra cup size.

Breast Implants by Cup Size Before and After Photos

As a result of the revised AHPRA guidelines that came into effect on July 1st, 2023, our website is currently undergoing significant modifications. This has necessitated the removal of a substantial portion of our Before and After photos due to non-compliance with the updated regulations. While our primary priority is to ensure the accuracy and relevance of our content, we are committed to reintroducing a wider selection of before and after photos as soon as possible.
