An Introduction to Large Breast Implants
When many people think of breast augmentation, they immediately also think of large breast implants. This includes quite a few of the patients who visit the plastic surgery practice of Dr. Anya Kishinevsky, M.D. to learn more about breast augmentation. One of the common misconceptions about breast augmentation is that a woman needs to have large breast implants placed during surgery in order to achieve the full, voluptuous bust line she desires.
The truth is that many women can achieve excellent results with much smaller breast implants, depending on their body types and the size of their breasts to begin with. When discussing large breast implants during consultations at her Fairfield, CT plastic surgery practice, Dr. Kishinevsky explains their advantages and risks in detail. She also advises patients as to whether she feels large breast implants are best suited to their particular cases.

About Large Breast Implants
Large breast implants are generally considered to be 600 cubic centimeters (cc) and up. For most women, breast implants of between 600cc and 700cc would give them DD sized breasts or even larger, depending on the size of their breasts to begin with.
Women who want to achieve a particularly dramatic enlargement may choose breast implants of between 800cc and 1000cc. Breast implants can be as large as 1200cc.
When Smaller Implants May Be a Better Choice Than Larger Implants
Smaller breast implants do not necessarily equate small breasts. Patients often believe that they need to have large breast implants placed in order to achieve their desired results. Often, this is not the case. They sometimes forget that they are augmenting their own breast tissue and not replacing it. In many cases, breast implants of between 200cc to 300cc can get the job done with fewer risks and outstanding results.
Patients must be aware of the fact that larger breast implants do present more risks than smaller implants, including:
- Disproportionately large breasts can cause shoulder and back pain.
- Many women overestimate the size of breast implant they wanted and must undergo breast implant revision surgery.
- Larger breast implants will increase the risk of breast ptosis, the clinical term for breast sagging, as the patient ages.
- There is a somewhat higher risk of rupture associated with larger breast implants than with smaller breast implants.
Sometimes Large Breast Implants Are the Best Choice
In some cases, however, large breast implants are precisely the right choice. There are some patients whose breasts are simply not in harmony with their figures, and large breast implants will bring their breasts into improved proportion with the rest of their bodies. Other women simply know exactly what they need to feel more feminine and attractive, and large breast implants will provide that.
