Women who are unsatisfied by the size of their breasts often have breast augmentation. The big question here is, how big can you go? There are limitations to breast implants because of the major health risks involved, and if you are one of hundreds of thousands of women in the U.S. looking to plastic surgery to change your cup size, you should know the reasons behind these limitations.
Two Cup Sizes Per Surgery
Even if you are practically flat chested and resemble a teenage boy in profile, most cosmetic surgeons will only add two cup sizes to your breasts per augmentation surgery. The smaller your rib cage, the less flesh you have to stretch over the implants, and going too big too quickly can cause the implants to poke through your sutures, or worse. Once the swelling has gone down and you have completely healed, you may decide that your new breasts are just the right size. Of course, the opposite could happen and you could decide that they are just a little too big. If you want them reduced a little, your plastic surgeon would put you back under the knife, remove the implants and then draw out some of the saline or gel to make them smaller.
Waiting to Go Bigger Is Safer and Smarter
In the event that you still want to go bigger, you will have to wait a few months to see how your body reacts to the implants. If they are accepted and tolerated by your immune system without any infection, you can have more augmentation surgeries to make your breasts bigger. Just be aware that most plastic surgeons will refuse to do any more surgeries on you if you begin to show signs of poor physical or mental health, due to your breasts being too large or your belief that size triple F is not large enough.
When No Plastic Surgeon Will Make Your Breasts Larger Than a Triple “F”
It is unfortunate when some patients feel that the size of their breasts is still too small, even when they can no longer find shirts and bras to support what they have. Usually, these patients will fly to other parts of the world, like Brazil, to have additional augmentation surgeries because no American cosmetic surgeons will perform any more procedures on them. Do not go this route. Find the most comfortable and natural-looking size of implants for your frame and you will have a lot less pain and discomfort later on, because your new breasts are the right size for you.
