purpbra1For women, one of the most common body parts that women are dissatisfied with is the bust area.

At Aesthetic Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery, we offer plastic surgery services to fit our patient’s needs, including procedures that can improve bust size.

If you’ve been considering changing the size of your breasts recently, breast augmentation is a treatment you should consider. However, it’s important to know the right size for you before you go through with the surgery. How can you make a decision before you have all of the right information? Before choosing a size, you should consider factors such as your body type, height, weight, and more. If you choose a size that does not fit your body type, you may end up with regrets. We suggest you use these tips before deciding which breast size to choose:

Go for a Proportionate Look

Of course, when San Diego patients receive breast augmentation, most women opt for bigger, perkier breasts. Although a larger size is usually the desired outcome, you don’t want to overdo it. Plastic surgery is meant to be subtle and natural-looking. You want the changes to your body to be noticeable, but also not so distinct that you look disproportionate and draw attention to yourself in a negative way. It’s best to choose a size that will fit with your body type. For instance, if you are naturally petite, you may want to choose a medium size instead of going full-out for large breast implants. Ultimately, the decision is still up to you. However, it’s important to consider how the different sizes will look with your current body stature.

How Often You Exercise

It may seem odd to consider, but exercise is an important factor when deciding the size for your breast augmentation. For San Diego residents who love to do vigorous activities that are as diverse as running to kickboxing, large implants may not be the way to go. If your breasts are larger, it will be more difficult to do high-intensity activities as your breasts may get in the way. Sports bras are a way that can help anyone with large breasts while exercising, but if you are more active than the average person, it’s advised that you considering a more moderate breast implant size.

Consider Your Lifestyle

For instance, if you are thinking of having kids anytime soon, it might be best to wait until after your pregnancy to receive a breast augmentation. The reason for this is that your breast size is affected by pregnancy, which can, in turn, alter your implants. If you receive implants before pregnancy, it’s likely that your breasts will change a little. Your implants may get bigger at first and then go back to a smaller size after the pregnancy is over. This is useful to know because if you are planning to have a child, you can consider whether or not you want to get implants after or deal with the hassle of getting them before pregnancy.
