Phoenix plastic surgeon Dr. Bryan Gawley takes pride in customizing each breast augmentation procedure to meet the specific needs and desires of each patient. To accomplish this, breast implant options such as shape, profile, and size will all need to be taken into careful consideration.

If you are considering breast implants and have set your mind on a certain cup size, you are not alone. However, cup size varies by manufacturer and style, making it an unreliable method for planning breast implant size. Instead, it is best to use visualization techniques both at home and at our office to give yourself a better idea of what results you can achieve.

One of the easiest ways to visualize the best breast implant size for you is with the rice test. To perform this test, simply take two nylon hose, fill them with rice, and place them underneath your bra. Begin with 1/8 cup (33cc) and gradually increase the size until you find the most appealing results. Record the size you like best and bring your findings to your initial consultation.

As a reference:

  • 1/8 cup = 30cc
  • 1/4 cup = 59cc
  • 1/3 cup = 78cc
  • 1/2 cup = 118cc
  • 2/3 cup = 156cc
  • 3/4 cup = 177cc
  • 1 cup = 236cc
