Before Your Consultation

Before your breast augmentation consultation, you may have some idea of the breast implant size you want based on a friend’s experience or what you have seen on the Internet. Viewing breast augmentation galleries online is helpful, but remember that breast augmentation is additive: your final breast size is the addition of your breast volume and the breast implant.

It may be difficult to find an exact match to your breast size and shape, so don’t place too much stock in a specific breast implant size until you have had your sizing session at Dr. Fata’s Indianapolis office.

Still, the Internet is a good place to start the process of breast augmentation research, and you will become more comfortable with the concept of breast implant volumes.

Your Breast Augmentation Consultation

The selection of breast size begins with a discussion of your goals regarding breast augmentation. Although picking a cup size has some limitations, it is a useful starting point. Think about whether you want your breasts to be proportional to your body size, or if you want to be a little more than proportional. There are no right or wrong answers; the right answer is what you want for yourself.

Dr. Fata will then take breast measurements that will help determine the range of sizes that are suitable for your breast augmentation.

As a final step, Dr. Fata’s assistant will have you place different size breast implants in a bra so see how you will look after breast augmentation. Bring a favorite top so you can see how you will look in your own clothes. Take all the time you need and trust your instincts on this one.

The combination of thoughtful discussion, accurate measurements, and pre-operative “sizing” have been highly successful in helping Dr. Fata’s Indianapolis breast augmentation patients find the right breast implant size.

It is not necessary to make a final decision regarding breast implant size during your first visit, but you will probably have it narrowed down to two sizes. You may want to take some time to think it over; you can make your final decision during your second, pre-operative visit before your breast augmentation.

Once you have found the right breast implant size, you will feel a considerable sense of relief. Remember that when you choose, the only thing that matters is what will make you happy. Don’t let outside considerations, such as whether anyone will notice, get in the way. Be true to yourself and you will be happy with your choice.
