Have a question for us?
How Does Breast Implant Sizing Work?Doctors don’t measure breast implants by cup size. There are several reasons for this. First and foremost, bra manufacturers don’t have universal bra sizes. Anyone who has ever worn a bra knows that cup sizes vary by brand. For example, an A cup in one bra may be a B cup size in another brand. Instead, doctors measure breast implants in cubic centimeters or ccs. A tablespoon of implant filler is used for every 15 cc of blood in the body. This allows surgeons to provide the perfect sized implants for each patient. Implant manufacturers provide a variety of sizes and designs, with the smallest starting at 100 ccs. Implant sizes usually go up in volume by 10 to 20 cc at a time, eventually reaching almost 800 ccs. This makes it easier for physicians, but it doesn’t necessarily make it easier for you to figure out what size implant you’ll need to achieve B cup breasts. According to several experts, every 150 or 200 cc of breast tissue increases breast size by one cup size. However, this isn’t always the case. Some individuals with small breasts or limited fatty breast tissues may need up to 300 ccs to increase their cup size. As a result, most plastic surgeons advise patients to avoid focusing too heavily on a certain volume for implants. Dr. Daneshmand will help you determine which implant size you need to achieve B cups.
How to Determine Your Current Bra SizeThe vast majority of women aren’t wearing the correct bra size according to a 2019 report.This is because many women don’t know how to get an accurate measurement of their bust and ribcage, which ultimately determines the bust size and band size. Before you undergo a breast augmentation, it’s important to know what your current size is so that you can know if B cup breasts are right for you.
Ribcage MeasurementsLet’s start with determining the correct band size. First, grab a tape measure and wrap it around your body, just under your breasts. Then, add two inches to whatever the measurement is. That number is your band size. If you get an odd number, round up to the next even number. For example, maybe your ribcage is 33 inches around. Add two inches, and that’s 35. Because that’s an odd number, all you need to do is round up to 36 inches. That would be your band size.
In order to determine the correct cup size, you need to measure your bust.
- First, wrap the tape measure around the fullest part of your breasts.
- Then, subtract the bust size number from the band size number.
The result is your cup size according to American sizing charts like the one pictured below. So if you subtracted a band size of 36 inches from a bust size of 37 inches, you would get 1 inch. That is the equivalent of A cup-sized bras.
If you have an A cup or smaller, moving up to a B cup bra size would be a great option for you.
How to Choose a Breast Implant Size
When it comes to choosing the proper implant size, there are a number of factors to consider. If you don’t plan accordingly, you could find yourself with bigger breasts that are harmful to your body. When deciding on the size of your implant, keep the following factors in mind.
- Lifestyle: Do you enjoy working out on a regular basis? If that’s the case, keep in mind that bigger breasts are heavier. Therefore, heavy breasts might make various physical exercises, such as jogging and tennis, more difficult or even painful.
- Personality: Are you the sort of person that likes to draw attention to yourself, or are you more reserved and quiet? The bigger the implants, the more noticeable your breasts will be. B cup breasts may be the perfect, subtle size increase to give you a natural shape.
- Symmetry: In many situations, our patients are more concerned with fixing breast symmetry than they are with increasing their cup size. B cup breasts might help you if you have uneven breasts or are unsatisfied with their form. It’s also crucial to talk about the firmness and aesthetics of the implants you’re considering. Maybe you enjoy the form that gummy bear implants give you, and maybe you don’t. Consult your surgeon to learn more about your options
- Your Body: With such a wide range of sizes, it’s important to remember that all bodies and boobs are different. Some bodies can’t tolerate large implants due to overall chest size. The optimal implant size to achieve the correct fullness, shape, and profile will depend on your body type, including the breadth of your natural breasts and the size of your chest wall.
Reasons to Get B Cup Breast Implants
Breast augmentation that allows a patient to go from AA cup bras to B cup bras, for example, can provide a major boost in confidence. For other patients though, this augmentation is a necessary element of breast reconstruction due to a variety of health problems. Consult a plastic surgeon if you’re considering breast augmentation. Make sure you know what surgery entails, including the risks, complications, and aftercare. Below, we include common reasons that our patients come to us for breast augmentation.
- Improve Symmetry: Breast augmentation can successfully provide a balanced look for people who have one breast that’s visibly bigger than the other.
- Proportions: Breast implants can offer larger breast contour and even out a woman’s figure. For example, some women want their breast size to look proportionate to the rest of their bodies.
- Mastectomy: Breast cancer is an emotionally and physically exhausting battle. While mastectomies can save lives, they can also make sufferers feel like they’ve lost their femininity. Breast reconstruction is an option for those who have had a mastectomy in order to prevent or eliminate breast cancer. Following a mastectomy, either of these breast surgeries can help you return to a more natural look and feel for your breasts.
- Pregnancy, Breast Feeding, or Weight Loss: Breast augmentation can restore volume to breasts that have shrunk and drooped due to pregnancy or significant weight loss. Breast milk production and increasing breast size can cause breast skin to stretch. Your breasts become less thick when you stop nursing or lose weight, and they may droop or appear deflated.
- Self-Confidence: All of the aforementioned factors can make women anxious about their appearance. As a result, many women undergo breast augmentation for the sake of a self-confidence boost.
Is it Worth Getting B Cup Breasts?
Many breast augmentation clients want to know if moving up to a B cup bra is worth it. How do you know if you should go up to a C cup or D cup instead? A B cup size may be perfect for you if:
- You want to improve the shape of your breasts or you want larger breasts.
- Your breasts are asymmetrical and you want to fix that.
- You’re athletic but you don’t want your breasts to get in the way.
- You want a subtle size increase or more fullness in your breasts.
An experienced plastic surgeon can achieve what no padded bra can: better breast symmetry, a beautiful form, and breasts that look and feel natural, as many patients with minor breast augmentations can attest. Breast augmentations aren’t simply for increasing the size of your breasts. They also aim to improve the look of the breasts and figure as a whole.
Benefits of Going From A Cup to B Cup Breasts
Now, let’s discuss why smaller volume implants actually have many benefits over larger volume implants.
- Lower Complication Risk: Large implants might cause complications in the future, such as capsular contracture and rippling. Capsular contracture occurs when scar tissue forms around the breasts. This complication is more common with larger implants. If this is a major concern for you, then smaller implants are the way to go.
- Results That Last Longer: Smaller implants weigh less. Your natural breast tissue will suffer less stress as a result. Therefore, the danger of early sagging is reduced. While no breast augmentation procedure is guaranteed to last a lifetime, smaller implants will generally survive longer than bigger implants.
- They Won’t Get in The Way: Smaller implants will match your lifestyle better whether you’re a runner, Crossfitter, or generally active. They’ll be more convenient and comfortable. Additionally, B cup breasts guarantee less back and shoulder pain compared to bigger breasts.
- Easier to Hide the Augmentation: Breast augmentation isn’t something to be embarrassed about. However, some people don’t like to admit that they’ve had one. For example, leaving work with A cup breasts and returning with D cup breasts, will likely be a noticeable change. If that’s what you want, then go for it. But if you’re looking for a more subtle change, going from an A cup to a B cup or even an A to a C cup is the best way to go.
