When you finally make the decision to have a breast enlargement you are faced with the next choice. What size of implant suits you best? Do you want a prominent chest or a more natural result?

Take into account that our surgeons talk about cubic centimetres of liquid. Us women naturally talk about cup-sizes but they can often differ quite considerably depending on the make of bra. As a rule 150 cc to 200 cc is the equivalent of one cup-size larger.

Of course a consultation with the doctor is necessary to obtain a better idea of the different options. During the consultation you can try out a variety of prostheses. The surgeon can then provide you with the right advice, based on years of experience!

But you can already prepare for your consultation at home, with rice!

What do you need?

  • A sports bra (with no seams)
  • Cooked rice
  • Small plastic sandwich bags

Take a measuring cup and fill it with cooked rice (such as up to 200 ml, 300 ml, 350 ml, etc.)

Now take some small plastic bags (like the one you use to pack your sandwiches in). Fill the bags with the different sizes. Try on the sports bra with the different bags of rice. This already gives you an idea of what feels comfortable.

Feel free to share your findings during your consultation.
