When you choose a breast implant size, bra cup size is not the only way to go about it. Discussing your desired cup size is a good starting point, and it can help give plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole an idea of the look you want to achieve, but you should also discuss the final look you want and then Dr. O’Toole can help you choose the size producing that result.

Bra cup sizes are not actually a universal way of determining breast size. One bra’s C cup may be slightly smaller or larger than the same cup size of another bra. Breast implants are not defined by cup size but by a measurement of their volume in cubic centimeters (cc).

When choosing your breast implant size for breast augmentation, you will discuss some of the following things with Dr. O’Toole:

  • Chest and breast measurements
  • Breast tissue characteristics
  • Your desired outcome
  • Current breast size

These things influence the range of implant sizes that will be an option for you.
