350cc Implants – How Big Will My Breasts Be?
One important thing to understand about this question is that 350cc breast implants may increase the breast size of one woman quite differently than on another. Since the body of every woman is unique, of course, breast implants once placed may have a different effect on you than on some breast augmentation photo you found on the internet. Only your plastic surgeon can adequately explain how this implant size will specifically impact your breast. We can, however, arrive at some estimation of how animplant of that size will grow your breast size based upon a few important factors.
1) What is your current bra cup size?
2) Will the breast implant be placed over or under the muscle?
3) Will you be using a low profile or high profile implant?
Current Bra Size
To the first point of current bra cup size, you might estimate a 350cc breast implant to increase your breast size by approximately 2 cups. As a very general rule of thumb, it is often considered that for every 175cc to 200cc in implant volume, a woman might experience approximately one bra cup size larger. The 350 therefore would fall into the low range of increasing your breast size by about two cups. If you currently wear a AA cup bra today, growing two cup sizes would be in the range of a C cup, for example.
Profile: Low, Moderate, High
The second mentioned factor of implant profile is important, especially in regards to your breast width. If you have a smaller bra band size such as a 32 to 34inch, for example, a higher profile implant is generally used in order to achieve a C cup in bra size. In general, the higher the profile, the smaller the width is of the implant. For women with a 36 to 38 inch bra band size, a lower profile may generally be recommended.
Placement Over or Under
The final factor mentioned above regards the placement of the implants. Most women decide to have the implant placed under the muscle. In this case, a slightly larger implant is needed to achieve the same result as an implant placed over the muscle. Many doctors suggest that the difference between the two placements may be as much as 15 to 20 per cent. In other words, a 350cc implant under the muscle will likely be similar to 300cc over the muscle due to the compression of the implant under the muscle.
One good way to estimate how your own body will be impacted with implants is to use an implant sizing system. The new systems available today allow you to try on a wide variety of cup sizes before you make your final decision.
In this case you might want to try a range of sizers from 300cc to 400cc in 50cc increments. Implant sizers, otherwise known as tester implants, are designed to be worn outside your body but within a bra. Similar in volume to a breast implant, the sizer will give you a good idea of how these sizes will increase your bra size.
After trying the implant sizers you might like the look and feel of a given implant size, for example 400cc or 375cc. After you show your plastic surgeon the sizer in your breast sizing bra, they might suggest that they will need to use a larger implant size to achieve the same effect as the sizer. This might especially be true if you are having your implant placed under the muscle. Again, generally speaking, if you like a 400cc size, your surgeon might suggest to use as much as 15 to 20 percent larger in the actual implants to achieve a similar look as the sizer.
These are all general rules of thumb, of course, and only you and your doctor can make the decision on how a specific implant, with a specific profile will increase your cup size.
