Women from Greenwood, Greenville and throughout South Carolina seek out Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ted Vaughn with breast augmentation and implant size questions.Some of the women from Greenwood, Greenville or elsewhere around South Carolina who seek out Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ted Vaughn for breast augmentation surgery are stumped by which size breast implant they want as well as the way to choose the right breast implant size.

Here is a quick rundown of how breast implants are characterized by size as well as the factors that breast augmentation candidates might consider when choosing their implants…

Breast implant size is described in cubic centimeters, or CCs. The higher the number of CCs in an implant, the larger it is. Breast implants generally start at about 400 CCs and go up from there, with each 150 to 200 CCs reflecting an additional cup to cup-in-a-half in size.

If you’re a breast augmentation candidate who’s considering implants, here are some of the factors that should influence your choice:

  • The width of your chest
  • Your height
  • Personal taste

Most women these days opt for breast implants that are prominent without being top-heavy.

But the single best way to determine which breast implants would be the right size for your body is to schedule a breast augmentation consultation.
