hi, i am getting a ba in the next few months and am still trying to decide on the right doctor. they all seem to think, i guess based on my measurements, that i should go around 300 to 330 ccs, but i just have no idea how big that will be. i am a 34a right now and would like to be a full B. i really dont want to be a c, as i think it might be unnatural looking on my build. i just wish i had a better way of knowing what cup size or how big that will be. any suggestions? oh yea, i am going under the muscle.
First thing you need is your base width diameter of your own chest..then you look at the implant charts on the same site that can FIT YOUR CHEST....you need to choose an implant that is not as wide as your chest..for instance..if your BWD was 14.7 then you choose an IMPLANT with a BWD of 14.0..14.2, etc. There are different shapes and sizes so write down what fits your BWD..THEN lets talk cc's
Hi, I am 5'7" and 112 pounds. I was a 34A before and now I am a 34C (full C) I am not sure what my ribcage measurement is but I am really small. I have 375 smooth implants under filled to 400cc on the left side and 420cc on the right side. I am very happy with my size. I don't feel like I look unnatural. People that do not know I had a BA don't even notice. I hope this helps.

11. How many cc's make a cup size?
The below excerpt is an approximate cc amount vs. cup size range study:
"Results of the study showed that an average of 189cc of saline was needed to change one bra cup size. Increasing an A cup to a C cup required a total of 391cc, or 196cc per cup. Moving from a B cup to a D cup required a total of 448cc, or 224cc per cup. The largest change, an A cup increasing to a D, cup required 437cc, or 145cc per cup."
"...while these amounts help achieve the desired size, they are not exact and that differences may occur because of other variables, such as chest wall size, breast tissue and the tissue envelope size." (source: Breast Augmentation Patients Try Implants on for Size - ASPS)
120 cc= 4 oz
60 cc = 2 oz
1 tablespoon =1/2 oz=15 cc
2 tablespoons =1 oz=30 cc
4 tablespoons =2 oz-60 cc

Another issue to decide is whether your implants will be cohesive gel or non-cohesive gel. Cohesive gel implants can be thought of as similar to gummy bears. They are soft and pliable, but do not leak out when they are cut open. Therein lies an important advantage of cohesive gel implants.
If you choose cohesive gel, then the next decision is whether you will choose Type I, II, or III. Type I are the most pliable and are the most appropriate for the majority of women seeking silicone breast augmentation. They are smooth and round and have a lower incidence of mal-rotation and displacement than Type II or III. Type II is textured, teardrop shaped, and more firm than Type I. It is best for women who have an extreme paucity of subcutaneous soft tissue, such as body builders. The advantage of Type II is that they have a lower likelihood of rippling than the Type I. (Note that Type I silicone cohesive gel implants are less likely to ripple than saline, but the Type II are even less so). The disadvantage of Type II is that they are more likely to rotate or displace into an unnatural position. Type III are very stiff and cannot ripple, but these are not currently available, even under a study protocol.
Miki - Would the Inamed410s I have be the type 2 or 3 gel? Just curious....They are really soft and pliable on my chest, more than I thought they would be from feeling them at the doc's office before my surgery -
