Is Bigger Better? Your Guide to Breast Implant Sizes

Are bigger breasts always better? Not necessarily. Although breast augmentation is designed to increase breast volume in women, it doesn’t mean that you need to opt for implants that are bigger than what is ideal for your body frame.

While it’s ultimately up to you which size of implants to go with, the best results are still those that are proportionate to your body. With so many options to choose from, though, you may find it confusing to select the best size for you.

Thankfully, you are not alone in making this important decision. Part of your private consultation with Dr. Burt is an examination of your breasts and body type, as well as an inquiry about your aesthetic goals. The information you provide will help determine your size.

Additionally, acquiring knowledge in advance can make your consultation a smooth one. Therefore, here’s a guide to help you in choosing the right breast implant size for you.

Body Frame

Burt will measure your chest or ribcage and shoulder width to determine the base width that corresponds with breast implant sizes. This will help her determine the right size that will compliment your frame while achieving the look you want. If you’re petite, a smaller implant size will work for you because a heavier one may cause back aches, neck pain, and other issues. If you’re tall, bigger sizes may look modest on your frame.


Increasing your breast size may have an impact on your lifestyle. You might find it uncomfortable to do active sports, like running or kickboxing, if you choose a bigger implant size. Therefore, consider the activities that you do on a regular basis when choosing the implant size.

Breast Implant Weight

Bra manufacturers don’t have a standard measurement, so breast implants are measured using cubic centimeter (cc) of volume instead of bra cups. Each implant size has a corresponding cc volume, and it increases in weight with each size. Be sure to consider how the implants will feel as you consider the size of your new breasts.

These factors, among others, will be part of the discussion during your consultation with Dr. Burt. Therefore, it pays to know beforehand what you want in your breast augmentation. If you want to have bigger breasts, we can make that happen. However, if you want large, natural-looking breasts, consider these factors.
