Question Will 500cc's look like 450 after D&F ?

Okay, so I've been to several consults and just yesterday my pre-op consult and STILL cannot wrap my mind around a decision on cc's!

My first consult with the doc I'm going with I was pretty satisfied with 450cc's. I like the way the sizers look under clothes and I'm comfortable with the weight and so on. BUT - I'm afraid if I go with 450 they will end up looking like 400's.

I don't want to be larger than a DD, would be totally satisfied with ending up a full D and maybe on the verge of DD but not totally committed.

Now at my pre-op consult they gave me 500 and 550 cc's to test out as well as the 400 and 450's. Still like the look of 450, 500 seemed big (like the max I'd want to go as a finished size), and 550 were just gargantuan.

They said if I went 550 I'd definitely be larger than a DD. Any thoughts on going with the 500 over 450cc's? I'm going with silicone full unders. No option to make for middle ground as they ratchet up 50cc's in this range.

Hi....I think the 450 will get you the look of a D/DD but you may size out bigger.It also depends on profile as well as HP would def get you the look due to the projection whereas Mods may look a bit smaller.Bear in mind that implants look around a size smaller than the equivalent size in a natural breast as implants are compact.So you need to concentrate of what size will get you the look of a D not the cup size.I size out larger than I look...I look a DD at most...which is what I wanted.I achieved it with 420cc but mine are Ultra High Profile.I still think the 450 would get you the look you want.HTH.

I too had serious issues with getting choosing a size. My initial consult had me at a 375 cc mod +, but then my next consult put me at 500 or 550!

In the end, (I give this advice to everyone) I chose my size by googling my height and weight and the different sizes. I wanted to be a large C and would be OK being a small D... but I did NOT want to be huge so I chose 450 ccs mod plus.

Profile is often dictated by you rib cage and BWD... I was too wide for HP but wanted more pojection than the mods.

At the end of the day - would you be more disapointed in being too big, or too small? What is your life style and could you see any pros or cons to having larger breasts? What about smaller ones?

Remember - anything is going to be a big change. Mine already look awesome in comparison to where they were! Friend me and check out my pics of before/after.

I was like you I was stuck at 400's and was really questioning the 450's. they showed me the 500cc's and I was like wow they would look too big on me. So I brought my hubby with me for pre op appt. and he liked the 450's and agreed that the 500cc's would prob. be to big.

So here i'm two days post op thinking i should have done the 500's but I've read that 50cc's is only like 2Tbs and in order to make a big difference you should go 100cc's more. Hopefully when I d&f i like how they look

I have similar stats. I went 420 HP. I do wish I went a little bigger. I fit into a DD bra, but i feel like I look like a C for some reason. On the other hand my sister thinks they're huge and I should have went smaller lol. In the end my feelings are that they do look good and proportionate with my frame, but I am def. seeing a revision in my future. If you like the look of 450, I say do 475! I guess it isn't a huge diff., but you'll be on the safe side.

I think you should go with 550 because with a shirt on they will look smaller. Implants do not look the same as real boobs. I have 450 and wish I'd gone bigger, I look like a B cup with my shirt on (unless im wearing a white shirt, of course lol) And youre tall, I think the 550 will be perfect on you

Hey I'm new on here, but I'm getting my boobs done this week. I'm so confused about cc's. Here's what I know: I want good projection, and also some side boob. I want to feel very big. I've nursed four kids and am very deflated looking.
Stats:
5'4". 117 lbs
Pre-op. 32a?
Narrow rib cage

I'd love to be able to see some pics of the uhp because that's what I've been suggested. Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

Hey I'm getting my boobs done next week and I've been told I should get the uhp and about 375cc's, because of my narrow rib cage. My concerns are that I won't get enough side boob. Or enough projection with this profile and cc size I'd be interested in pics of the uhp as I can't really find any. Any pics or thoughts would be great. Here are my stats:
5'4". 117 lbs
Pre-op 32a?
Nursed 4 kids
Small rib cage and narrow frame

I have 515cc Hp, and was aiming for a 32DD/E. 7weeks later I measure a 32F, but have the look I wanted. I imagined a 32F to "look" so much bigger.... Might be just me, but glad I did not end up a 32DD/E!!!

We have similar stats and I too liked the look of the 450 cc. But my PS suggested 500 cc. He said 450 cc will make me look like a full C, and possibly in the D range, which may or may not look that big under clothes.

Although 500 cc looked huge to me, I am going to go with my PS's suggestion, after reading that the actual implants often look smaller than the sizers.

Let us know what you decide and how they turn out!

I personally would go with as big as you can. I think the girls that end up wishing they went smaller are a minority on this site. Not to say that this would not be your case but overall I tend to read more that women ended up wishing they have gone bigger especially since implants look smaller than real large breasts. I went with 425cc only cuz it's the largest my PS was willing to go with me due to my frame and breast tissue. If I had any other bigger options I would have gone with them. I also was afraid going bigger would be a problem preop but that's not the case anymore. I am a full D and would love to be a full DD now but not willing to go through surgery again at the mo only for that reason. Better be safe than sorry IMO. Goodluck!
