Size: Your breast implants are too big or too small

Size: Your breast implants are too big or too small

One of the key risks in breast augmentation is quite obvious but it is not often thought about as a risk because it is not a surgical risk. It is simply that your choice of breast size implants was not the right choice for you or perhaps it is no longer the right choice for you because you have changed your mind. Your new breasts may feel either too small or too large. They may look bigger or smaller than you expected.

After surgery, there will be swelling and so your breasts will appear larger than they will be longer term after they have settled down. They will also probably feel quite large to you at first, which is quite natural. This is not just because of the swelling, it's because there's been a noticable change to what you have been used to seeing for quite some years.

However, as the swelling subsides and your breasts begin to settle you will get use to their new size and shape. But several months after surgery, you may find that you are not happy with the size you have chosen. You may either want to increase or decrease the size of your implants. This may well mean more cost and further surgery which you will obviously want to avoid. To reduce the risk of choosing the wrong size implants, you should discuss this thoroughly at your breast enlargement surgery consultation and read our guide on breast implant size.
