In general, the most common breast implant sizes for breast augmentation fall between 300cc and 500cc. However, for some, that is not enough, and they are looking for a significant increase in breast size and volume, taking the “go big or go home” saying to the extreme.
In these cases, implant sizes can go as high as 3000cc. However, these extra-large breast implants come with some serious considerations and, before you choose these big breast implants, it is important that you understand what they can mean. Our doctors have years of experience performing extra-large breast implant procedures, and can guide you so you understand the benefits and challenges of very large breasts.
Look for an Experienced Surgeon
Extra-large breast implants come with some special considerations. In most cases, the enhanced size stretches out skin and existing breast tissue, increasing the risk of rippling, feeling the implants, and problems with shape and symmetry. Not all surgeons are experienced with larger breast implants and this lack of experience can further increase the risk of potential implant problems. If you want extra-large implants, our experienced surgeons can help you safely achieve the results you are looking for.
Follow Post-Surgical Instructions
While recovery is important following any breast augmentation procedure, extra large implants require additional considerations. Because of their larger size, you may experience chest tightness after the procedure as your body adjusts to the new implants. Bed rest, post-surgical garment support, and plenty of fluids are essential during these initial stages of recovery.
Like any breast implant procedure, extra-large implants are likely to sit higher than expected immediately after your procedure but will settle over time. Our surgeons will check in with you post-operatively to ensure you are on track with healing and to address any concerns you may be having. Longer-term, large breast implants can put a great deal of weight on the chest, meaning that wearing quality bras is essential during and after recovery in order to provide necessary support.
