C Cup Breast Implants
In the United States, breast augmentations are among the most frequent operations performed by cosmetic surgeons. Breast augmentations can improve your look and raise your self-esteem. When women come in for a consultation for a breast augmentation, we frequently hear inquiries about implant size. What is the optimum implant size? What factors do we consider while choosing implant sizes? What steps do I need to take to get to this cup size or this cup size? And, more particularly, concerns about breast implant A to C cup breasts.

Can I Get C Cup Breasts with Implants?
When it comes to breast augmentation, you have the option of having any size implant you choose. For certain women, however, certain implant sizes may not be the best option. The consequences of selecting the incorrect implant size will be discussed later on.
This is when your surgeon’s advice comes in handy. Dr. Daneshmand can help you choose an implant size that fits your lifestyle and gives you the appearance you want by gathering information about your lifestyle and your expectations for the operation.
Even when stepping up from an A-cup, achieving C cup breasts generally only involves a moderately-sized implant. Women with natural A cups usually have no trouble undergoing a C Cup breast augmentation.
How to Decide What Size Breast Implants to Get?
We’re all familiar with the A, B, C, and up bra cup sizes, but implants are measured in cubic centimeters, or cc for short. The breasts will typically expand by one or one and a half cup sizes for every 150 to 200 ccs. That varies based on your individual dimensions and even the bra maker, but it offers you a ballpark figure. During your appointment, you may always try on different sizes with specialist bras to evaluate how the implants appear and feel on your body.
With such a wide range of sizes, it’s vital to remember that not every woman’s body shape or breasts can tolerate implants that are higher on the scale. The optimal size of implant to achieve the correct fullness, shape, and profile will depend on your body type, including the diameter of your natural breasts and the form and size of your chest wall.
Larger breasts, whether natural or enhanced, are naturally heavier. This can have a significant impact on a woman’s entire body. Large breast implants are best handled by women with bigger frames and/or stronger muscles, although even they can have problems. Choosing a breast implant size that is too big might cause tiredness, back and shoulder pain, and possibly the need for a breast reduction.
Larger breast implants may not be suitable for active women, athletes, or women who work in physically demanding occupations. It’s simple: carrying the extra weight when working, exercising, lifting weights, or participating in sports is more exhausting and potentially harmful.
How to Size Breast Implants
The language surrounding breast augmentations and implant sizes differs greatly from bra sizes. At times, it gets confusing. However, the first thing to understand is that medical professionals do not measure implants by bra cup sizes.
There are numerous reasons for this, the most important of which is that bra sizes are not uniform. Any woman who has shopped for bras knows that a C cup in one brand may be a CC, a D, or even a B in another.
Doctors and surgeons measure implants in cubic centimeters, or CCs. In order to achieve C cup breasts, we look at a few important factors.
- Your current chest dimensions
- How much natural breast tissue you have
- The expectations and desires you have
Going from a B cup to a C cup requires a smaller implant than going from an A cup to a C cup. It is still possible to achieve a C cup breast augmentation from a natural A cup.
Is It Worth Getting C Cup Breasts?
It depends. Maybe you’re a natural A cup and you want C cup breasts. You’re probably wondering if it’s realistic or even worth it to shoot for a C cup. There are actually a few reasons why aiming for C cup breasts is a great idea.
- Clothing: Most clothes tend to fit better for those with B or C cup breasts. Therefore, increasing to a C cup might make it easier to fit into and shop for clothes. Increasing to D cups or beyond, however, might require an all new wardrobe to accommodate larger breasts.
- Lifestyle: If you lead a very active lifestyle, you might want a bigger size, but not so big that it impacts your comfort while running or exercising. C cups are a great option for this, as they tend to cause less back pain and discomfort than D cups.
- Symmetry: In many cases, our patients care less about increasing the size of their breasts and care more about improving the shape or symmetry. If you feel that your breasts are uneven, or if you are unhappy with your shape, C cup breasts can improve these areas. It’s also important to discuss which implants are right for you in terms of firmness and appearance. Maybe you like the shape given by gummy bear implants, maybe not. Speak with your surgeon to explore your options.
Why Should I Not Get Bigger Implants?
If you want them, you can have them. What you want to get out of the operation is the most important element in selecting implant size. Dr. Daneshmand and his staff will work with you to achieve an implant size and style that you adore if you desire the largest implant size conceivable.
However, going from an A cup to a D cup or above will necessitate some substantial implants. There are a variety of reasons why this may not be the ideal option for everyone, including those mentioned above: lifestyle, clothes, and so on. However, there are a number of medical reasons why big implants may not be the best option.
To begin with, breast implant makers create implants that are low in weight, similar to the weight of natural breast tissue. The larger the implant, however, the heavier it will be. Increasing your cup size from an A to a D or higher may dramatically increase the weight of your breasts, which may alter your posture and cause back or shoulder pain in the long run.
Second, bigger implants increase the danger of rippling and the implants sliding out of the breast pocket. Larger implants also have a higher risk of sagging or falling over time, as they are significantly heavier.
Finally, bigger implants will make your breast augmentation more visible. For many women, this is a desired outcome, but not for all. Some women may prefer something a little more understated.
Does Insurance Pay for Cosmetic Surgery?
Most likely not. The majority of women are forced to pay out of their own pockets. Breast augmentation surgery is typically not covered by insurance. Breast implants will, however, be covered for women who have had mastectomies related to breast cancer.
Most cosmetic treatments, including breast augmentations, are considered optional by insurance providers. They aren’t medically required. However, the only way to be certain is to contact your insurance provider. There are occasions when medically essential treatments such as breast augmentations are required.
