Breast augmentation can change your life for the better. The procedure can improve your self-esteem and allow you to create the body you’ve always wanted.
Like all the best things in life, it’s not entirely straightforward. Deciding to have implants fitted takes a lot of courage, determination and consideration. While the material, shape and placement of your breast implants have a massive effect on the outcome of your boob job, for most women, it’s the size that counts.
Choosing the right breast implant size is impossible without an in-person consultation with your surgeon. Every woman’s body is different, so Mr Pieri offers an extensive sizing consultation prior to the procedure and the opportunity for women to take the time they need to find the perfect fit.
As an introduction, this breast implant size guide aims to help you understand how your plastic and reconstruction surgeon can help you find the best breast implant sizes.
How Do We Measure Breast Implants?
For round implants, the diameter will be the same across most of the surface, while for teardrop implants, the base diameter is the largest section. The diameter of the breast implant affects the fit and your post-procedure breast width.
The main types of implant profile are:
Low Profile: Smaller implants that project less from the body, giving a more natural look. Ideal for women with broad chests or those looking for a smaller lift.
Moderate Profile: Medium implants that offer additional fullness. Ideal for women looking for larger breasts without a dramatic change.
High Profile: Larger implants that protrude significantly from the chest. Ideal for women who want a noticeably bigger chest.
Within these three categories, there are various profile gradients, allowing you to find the exact right size for your implants.
As part of your first in-person consultation with Mr Pieri, he will discuss all of these measurements to help you pick the right breast implant size.

What Are The Most Popular Breast Implant Sizes?
The most common breast implant size is between 300- 400 CC, but the best option for you depends on what you want to achieve.
Bringing photos to your initial consultation will help give Mr Pieri an understanding of what size you’ll need. However, it’s important to remember that your shoulder width, rib cage shape, torso length and other factors will play a part in how big your implants need to be.
So, if you already have a size in mind, don’t be surprised if Mr Pieri suggests a different option based on his expertise and measurements. He can help you select an implant that will match your desired outcome.
Does The Size Of Your Breast Implants Affect The Cost?
The size you choose won’t affect the cost of your procedure, as the price of the implants is a flat fee, no matter what the size. Your surgeon’s time and expertise are the main factors influencing the price you pay, not the size of your implants.
As such, this is one of the few factors that won’t affect the cost of your breast augmentation procedure.
What Should You Consider When Choosing A Breast Implant Size?
Lifestyle: Factors such as how much exercise you do will significantly influence your breast implants. Active women might want to opt for smaller breast implants, as these can give you a perkier look without being obstructive during workouts.
Body Type: Getting the right appearance from your implants means ensuring they fit your body shape. Women with broad shoulders, taller women and those with wide hips suit larger breasts. Anyone with a petite frame and narrow shoulders or waists will look out of proportion with a very large chest, so smaller breast implants are a better choice.
Implant Material: All breast implant shells are made from silicone in the UK, but the material inside can change the overall effect. Saline implants are typically harder than their gel counterparts, so they can give a more rigid look and appear larger. Silicone breast implants containing gel are softer, more natural and often less likely to rupture, making them popular with most women.
Future Plans: If you’re considering having children in the coming years, you need to think about the changes your body will go through during this time and how breast implants might affect pregnancy. Breastfeeding a baby with breast implants is possible. However, a larger implant may impact the milk ducts and cause problems, so choosing from the smallest breast implant sizes is recommended.
Each of these factors will affect the size of breast implants that work best for you, so be honest with yourself and figure out what you want when preparing for your consultation. Mr Pieri won’t judge, but without accurate information, he can’t give you the right suggestions and support throughout the breast implant process.
