how many cc's per cup size???

I am 5'7" ; 135; 12.0 diameter pre op 32/34 small B cup. I went for my first consult today and the PS started with Natrelle, Moderate 300 cc. Even though he assured me that the size will decrease by approx 20% I felt it to be too much. I felt a more comfortable with the 240 cc. I can't find any post with less that at least 300 to 350 implants. Is there anyone with my stats that has had same size implantts? Also, how many CC's equals a cup size.

Thanks

There is a group for the 300 & unders here. Just look it up! I was browsing the other day and there is A LOT of helpful info for those who want to stay on the smaller implant size side.

I have 300cc and they are not that big. I initially wanted 280cc cause I didnt want to be too big but honestly now I probably wouldve chosen the next size up after 300cc. I think that's normal though, boobie greed.

Hope this helps, from Dr. Hedden's blog:

52 or less 180-200cc per cup
52-55 -200-225cc per cup
55 or taller -225cc or more per cup

Also, try on actual sizers at the PS office and look at as many before and after pictures as you can.

I think this varies greatly by individual. I started out a saggy 34A, got 475cc and went up FOUR cup sizes (to a 34DD).

I agree that sizers help, as do pics of the look you like. Good luck with your decision!

Yes, it's only one of the many variables to consider along with existing breast tissue, height, weight, BWD, implant profile (wider profiles require larger cup sizes) and more. It's just a guideline to use to discuss with your PS. I started a full 34A and am a 34D/DD with 650cc. So, it's really hard to know, PS have the most experience with women and can usually provide the best guidance.

i agree, by this I would have went up 2 and a half cup sizes so that would have been a full C/small D cup. But I'm a DD/E and in some bras I'm a DDD/F, that's 4-5 cup sizes bigger! I've always heard 150-200cc is a cup size but it can change for any individual and depends on bra manufactorer

This was my reality. I got a two cup bump with 300CC. My stats are below. . . I think the rules change if you have existing breast tissue.

Thank you. This was helpful. I guess since my ribcage is pretty small 28" this would also affect the end result. I just want to be a small/medium C with more fullness at the top. 240ccs should take me pretty close to this. At least I hope. I think its better to be a bit conservative rather than end up too large. Anything is an improvement.
