Most women presenting for breast augmentation desire a result proportionate with their body, resulting in alluring, feminine, and sensual curves, with a naturally beautiful appearance. Selecting implants that are too large may result in several adverse outcomes. Artificially oversized breasts overpower other features, diverting attention away from facial beauty. Breast skin may become stretched, causing implants to sag downward over time, and become uncomfortable. Participation in active sports becomes more challenging, and fashions that fit well are harder to find. Nipple sensation may diminish.
Alternatively, insufficient augmentation resulting in a barely noticeable result is also disappointing, and a potential source of dissatisfaction. So how does one best select the best size breast implant, given the wide variety of body types, breast sizes and shapes, implant sizes available, and unique needs of each woman? After performing many hundreds of breast augmentation procedures for over twenty years, Dr. Steve Laverson applies his RITE-SIZE formula, which has resulted in many happy women and zero revisions for dissatisfaction with imlant size in the past ten years. This formula considers each woman’s breast base width, her available skin quality, pre-existing amount of breast tissue, and desired final cup size. Recognizing that there is no “one size fits all” approach, nor is there a perfect size for all occasions and outfits even for each individual woman, Dr. Laverson believes RITE-SIZE is as perfect a method as any for selecting the correct implant. Once the implants have been chosen according to RITE-SIZE, each woman tries them on beneath a tight fitting top to confirm. We also offer 3-D Portrait surgical simulation photography to demonstrate what her body will look like after augmentation. Typical results can be seen in the feelbeautiful.com breast augmentation gallery.
