The Advantages and Disadvantages of Large vs. Small Breast Implants

By Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons on February 28, 2011

When it comes to enhancing your curves and your overall figure, one of the most effective surgeries is breast augmentation surgery. Not only can breast augmentation increase the size of the breasts, it can also enhance the perkiness and firmness of the breasts as well. It’s important, however, to know what size is the right size for you.

The team here at our Indianapolis plastic surgery practice will provide you with some different considerations and suggestions about how to pick the breast implant size that is right for you during the consultation process. With that in mind, however, we do want to take a brief moment right now to discuss the pros and cons of small and large breast implants.

First and foremost, you need to realize that bigger is not always better when it comes to breast implants. Breast implants that are too large can cause you to experience physical pain and discomfort. This means the possibility of back aches, shoulder pains, and neck aches due to the extra weight being carried. In addition, breast implants that are too large can look obviously fake and quite artificial. They may clash with your body type rather than complement your figure.

It should also be noted that your body type may determine the largest size of breast implants that you can receive. Skin laxity and the glandular and muscle structure of your chest wall may mean that you cannot get breast implants that are larger than a certain size. Because of all these considerations, it is important to really discuss your Indianapolis breast augmentation with your cosmetic surgeon in greater depth.

As mentioned before, when you come to our office, we will take time to answer all of your questions and address all of your concerns. While we will strive to help you achieve all of your aesthetic goals, we will also help give you realistic expectations of what to expect from surgery, both during the recovery period and down the road.
