Does the number of cc’s in a breast implant correlate with the breast size?

It usually does not since it depends on the size of breast that you are beginning with. The resulting cup size does not directly correlate with the implant size. Just as different sizes, whether it is a B, C, or D cup, vary from patient to patient and from retailer to retailer, there is no way to guarantee that one will have B, C, or D cup breasts after implants. The goal is to make them proportionate to the patient’s chest wall diameter, the amount of breast tissue the patient has and the size and shape. It is very important not to over-augment patients, as they will then have further movement of their breast tissue out to the outside (or lateralization) which will cause distortion and the breast will look too large for the patient’s body and chest wall.
