Computer Simulation for Breast Augmentation Surgery Can be Helpful (and We Have it Available for YOU!)

If you are considering having a breast augmentation or a breast lift along with a breast enlargement, figuring out the size that you want to be and how that will look on you can be VERY confusing. Compounding this dilemma is the lack of standardization of cup size. After all, two different bra cup sizes produced by different bra manufacturers may fit you exactly the same presently.

How do you better express the appearance that you desire?

Many women state that what they want is to be proportional or somewhat natural looking.

What is that?

Proportional or natural looking means different things to different women. What is proportional for one may be far too small for another.

A woman may indicate that she wants to be a moderate “C” or a large “C”. Or maybe even a small to moderate “D” but not too big.

What exactly is a moderate “C” or a large “C”? Or a moderate “D”?


There is no such specific thing.

For more than 25 years, I have been highly successful in using an approach for my patients wanting a breast enlargement which can accurately determine the look that they desire and then translates that into the appropriate breast implant sizes. This system uses extensive and crucial information that I obtain from my patients during their thorough consultations and examinations as well as during surgery. Still, there are some women who really need to see what they will look like before undergoing their breast augmentation.

Fortunately, I can now provide a good solution for this: computer imaging of their breasts that algorithmically projects their results based both on implant size in cc’s and profile (moderate, high and ultra-high). In this fashion, my patients can visualize the effects of various implant sizes as well as their configurations on the appearance of their breasts, their chest and overall proportionality.

Though I find the results from this high tech imaging still not highly accurate and predictive, the patients of mine that have requested it have found the simulation to be quite helpful for them in many ways.
