Breast augmentation can improve the breasts’ appearance by adding volume and projection, but how do you decide the best breast implant cc size to suit your body and your lifestyle? Consider proportion and projection. The breast implant cc size, a volume measured in cubic centimeters (CCs) and profile, meaning the projection from the chest, is one of the critical breast augmentation decisions for an outcome that looks and feels natural and proportioned. Getting this balance right is a daunting task, but it’s not one you’ll be making alone.
Dallas based board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Bryan Armijo specializes in reconstructive breast surgery. With his natural aesthetic sense and dexterity, he carefully personalizes every breast augmentation to create the best results for each patient. He will walk his patients through their surgery with compassion and provide a thorough preoperative consultation and postoperative follow-up to ensure patient safety and satisfaction.
What are CCs?
CCs refers to cubic centimeters of volume, meaning this is not a bra cup measurement or cup size. CCs are standard, precise measurements with no variances.
Are Bra Cup Sizes Consistent Between Brands, or Do They Vary?
When it comes to a bra cup size, there can be tremendous variances between brands. A 32C in a Victoria’s Secret bra can mean something completely different from a 32C from a Target brand bra. Brands of bras tend to follow their own proprietary sizing charts. They are generally similar but not always identical, and the difference could be extreme. Also, your cleavage will likely look very different in a soft-sculpted t-shirt bra, an underwire push-up bra, a sports bra, or other types of garments.
Patients often say, “I want to be a C cup” or “I want to move from a B cup to a D.” If only it were that simple.
Asking how many CCs are in a bra cup size is a question fraught with issues because there is no consistent answer. So, if you’re considering which breast implant size is best for your physique, then it’s crucial to speak to your surgeon honestly about your exceptions and allow them to help you find the measures in CCs rather than bra cup size.
