Choosing Breast Implant Size

At the plastic surgery practice of Manuel Peña, M.D., we have various tools to help you choose breast implant size. Your implant size is important because it will create the breasts you have always wanted.

In Naples, we use 3D imaging as well as personalized breast augmentation consultations to help women choose the breast implant size that will produce the final look they want.

Visualizing Breast Size with VECTRA 3D

Our 3D imaging system lets you explore breast implant size options before you choose. Finally you can actually see a prediction of what different implant sizes will look like on your body.

VECTRA 3D Imaging captures images of your breasts from multiple angles. Using these images, the system shows you and Dr. Peña digital images of your body and breasts on a monitor. Using computer software, you can toggle between cup sizes and see how the size of your breasts changes on the monitor.

Once you've decided how you want your breasts to look, Dr. Peña can plan your breast augmentation with the appropriate size of implant to achieve the look you want.

Other Considerations for Implant Size

VECTRA can be used to see how different breast sizes will look on your body. To determine the range of breast implant sizes that are an option for you, Dr. Peña will consider various measurements, including:

  • Diameter of the base of your breast
  • Current breast volume
  • Chest width and body frame

These measurements allow Dr. Peña to determine what size breast implants your body can accommodate. Once you know the range of breast implant sizes available to you, you can visualize what these sizes look like with VECTRA.

Before-and-after photos are another useful tool to use when choosing implant size. Dr. Peña shows you photos of some of his past patients. You should not expect your results to look exactly like anyone else, because each woman has a unique frame. But these photos give you and Dr. Peña a way to discuss proportion. You can show Dr. Peña the proportions you want by seeing those proportions on other women.
