Summer is around the corner and it’s time to try on the bathing suits! Looking in the mirror makes many women yearn for someone else’s body! Breasts are often the reason that women are not happy with their bodies.
Is there such a thing as perfect breast size? The better question may be what is the perfect size for you?
Breast size and shape do not define a woman. However, each woman defines their perfect breast. Breast augmentation is a personal decision. Among all the surgeries that I do, this is by far one that patients do primarily for themselves, not for their husbands or their boyfriends.
DR. Babak Farzaneh of Farzaneh Cosmetic Surgery Based in Chino Valley answers this question reagrding patients motivation to have cosmetic breast surgery. What drives women to have breast augmentation, a procedure that has favored highly in most patient satisfaction surveys?
Each woman has their own reasons for undergoing augmentation. Some are born with small breasts and some have lost fullness and firmness due to pregnancy or weight loss.
Dr. Farzaneh believes that most patients in the Inland Empire are conservative with their breast implant size choice. “Most patients today ask for a natural look. They don’t want to go too big and the “in your face look” has fallen completely out of vogue.”
Patients usually think that the surgeon has the magic answer for what their perfect breast size should be, however this is far from the truth. At Farzaneh Cosmetic Surgery during breast augmentaion consultaion , Dr. Farzaneh evaluates the anatomical limitations of each patient and makes a recommendation regarding the range of implant size that is operatively safe and achievable, however it is ultimately the patient’s choice.
So how do you pick the perfect size, FOR YOU.
Some surgeons advocate bringing photos of model’s breasts that you find attractive. This often creates an unrealistic expectation. Breast implants primarily increase the size of your breasts and do not affect the basic shape of the breasts. Also it’s difficult to know the model’s proportions; how tall she is or the diameter of her ribcage. Many of these photos are manipulated and touched up, hence not real.
Another method is to use standard measurements and calculated norms to predict the best size for the patient. Although this is a useful adjunct in the decision-making algorithm, on its own it leads to cookie cutting. It does not take into account the patients desires. Every patient is unique and there is no room for an assembly line approach in cosmetic surgery.
Probably the most inaccurate way of expressing your breast size desires to your surgeon is to ask for a cup size. Cup sizes are very arbitrary and not standardized between different manufacturers. Victoria secret’s cup sizes are different than Macy’s cup sizes.
Also, going based on what your friend may have chosen is very misleading. A specific implant size can result in a “C” cup in one woman and “D” cup in another, depending on their starting breast size.
Breast Implant Sizing at Farzaneh Cosmetic Surgery,
The ideal way to choose your breast implant size should allow you to see what you would look like in real life. Trying on “sizers” is a great, time-tested approach and can be done in the comfort of your home. Make your own breast implant sizer using a pair of nylon stockings, rice and measuring cup with ounce measurements. I generally give the patient a starting point, for example 10 ounces. Measure out those ounces of rice and fill the stocking with it, repeat for the other breast. Place each filled stocking in your NON PADDED, NO UNDERWIRE sports bra. Try on different clothes and swimsuits, to get an idea of your desires and proportions. If it’s too big or too small then adjust the filling volume and try it again until you reach your ideal size. Then communicate this volume to Dr. Farzaneh. The size you choose will then be confirmed using actual implant sizers during your preoperative evaluation.
This process not only puts you in the driver’s seat to give you what you want, but also gets you actively involved in the process. It helps the patient take ownership of your decision. After all they are your breasts and only you need to love how they make you look and feel. It’s also a great communicating tool between you and your surgeon.
Always try to keep a picture of the new you in mind and have realistic expectation so that you can enjoy the result of your surgery.

About his recognition, Dr. Farzaneh said, “I don’t work for my business, I work for my patients. My Patients are my inspiration to be a caring surgeon. Cosmetic surgery requires a different level of compassion and trust between the doctor and the patient. It is elective surgery. I need to know that my patients will have a great result and are happy. Their outcome is more important to me than it is even to them. ”
One of the patients wrote this about her experience: “ Dr. Farzaneh, is a true gem in his profession. On my initial consultation he greeted with a friendly smile and we talked for hours as if we had known each other for years. He was always very concern of what would make me happy and what I fully expected of this procedure. His guidance and his assurance that he would be taking care of me, and no matter what I came first. These words is what gave me the strength and confidence to go thru this procedure. After the surgery, his bedside matters and his concern for my recovery was around the clock always calling checking to see how I was doing. I have worked in the Medical field for several years and never have I come across a doctor who calls his patients before and after the surgery. I truly thank The Lord for putting such a caring and wonderful doctor in my path. “
