Getting DD breast implants is a huge commitment. It’s going to change your life, both positively and negatively, so there’s a good chance that there are a lot of questions running in your mind right now. This is good. You shouldn’t go through with it if you still have a lot of questions. You need to find the answers and you need to be satisfied with them.
What’s the Best Way to Get the Answers?
You can talk to a plastic surgeon that specializes in them. It’s a good idea to talk to them face to face so you can be reassured as well. However, it’s understandable if you want some of your questions to be answered first before talking to a surgeon. This is because meeting up with a surgeon is already a commitment towards breast augmentation. If you’re not yet ready to make this commitment, check out the frequently asked questions about DD breast implants below so you’ll know the answers.
Frequently Asked Questions and their Answers
Listed below are 5 of the most frequently asked questions. There’s a good chance that you have the same questions in mind so here are the answers as well:
- How many cc’s are needed?
It depends on how big (or small) your breasts are to start with. Most surgeons are saying that 200 cc’s are needed to go up one cup size.
Generally speaking, you need 700 cc’s if you want to go from an A cup to DD cup.
- Are there more risks involved in getting DD breast implants?
It depends on who you ask. Some board certified plastic surgeons are saying that these implants carry more risks. There seems to be a good basis for this argument since bigger implants would have to work with thinner tissues.
- How much will they weigh?
This will depend on the density and the volume. According to “The Bra Maker’s Handbook”, a pair of 32DD breasts will weigh 5 to 6 pounds on average. This is just an estimate but it should give you a good idea on how much additional weight you’re expected to carry.
- How much will the procedure be?
This will be dependent on several things namely your breast size now, your target size, the surgeon, the location, and more. Just to give you an idea, you can expect to pay close to $10000 if you need 700 cc’s like if you want to go from an A cup to a DD cup.
