Knoxville Patient FAQ: How Big is Too Big?

Almost everyone has seen people they know, or celebrities on television, that have breast implants that are obviously “too big.” There is a certain “look” that oversized implants create that most women do not want. So how big is too big and what can you do to make sure that you get perfectly-sized breast implants? Well, the answer all depends on you.

  • Stay proportional – The reason why “perfect” breasts look good is that they are proportional to the rest of the body. The width of your chest wall and your shoulders are a good place to start because they’ll be carrying the implants. Putting larger implants on a petite woman can actually make her look heavier and wider.
  • Think of your lifestyle – Many women that get oversized implants sometimes are not able to enjoy certain activities (such as sports and fitness) as much because of the size of their breasts.
  • Pain and injury – One common reason for breast reduction surgery is shoulder, neck, and back pain from having to carry larger breasts – large implants have the same effect over time. Also, sagging breasts are another issue from oversized implants after breast augmentation – these will eventually need further surgery to correct.

Knoxville women can get terrific results by asking questions, doing their research, and discussing the procedure with Dr. Hall. Also, one of our patients favorite aspects of their consultation with Dr. Hall is “trying on” different size implants using our state-of-the-art 3D imaging equipment. This allows you to actually see different size implants and also get an idea of how they will look on you after your breast augmentation.
