A big part of having breast surgery is deciding what size of implants you want put in. When you go for your consultation, your surgeon will provide lots of helpful advice about what size will be best for your body.

Your surgeon will also examine your breasts and let you know if there are any specific factors you need to keep in mind. Having this input will allow you to make a decision that provides self-confidence and a look that’s perfect for your body.While your surgeon will have equipment that allows you to see what different sizes look and feel like, many women are so excited about this procedure that they want to start experimenting with different sizes even before they have their consultation.Not only can this be a good way to satisfy your curiosity, but it will allow you to go into your consultation feeling really informed about what kind of change you want to make.

An Easy Way to Get An Idea of Sizing

If you want to get an idea of what you will look like with breasts that are larger, you can get an idea in advance by using rice. Although this may sound a little strange at first, the Rice Test is actually a popular option that has been used by women all over the world.

As the name implies, one reason this experiment is so popular is because the main thing you need is rice. Other than that key ingredient, all you’ll need to gather is a pair of tights or food bag, as well as a scale.

Once you have those items, weigh out an amount that’s equivalent to the implant you’re considering. If you haven’t had a consultation yet, you may not be sure how cc’s work. What’s interesting about breast implant sizes is cc’s aren’t the same for every woman.

These sizes are very relative.For example, a shorter woman who already has B-cups may only need 250cc implants to move up to a C-cup, while a taller woman with broad shoulders and existing A-cups may need 450cc implants.

Since cc measurements are relative, the Rice Test is the perfect opportunity to experiment. The great thing about this test is grams correlate directly with cc’s. So if you measure out 300 grams of rice and then put it in a pair of tights or food bag, you’ll have something you can mold into a representation of a 300cc implant.

By filling two pairs of tights or food bags and then putting the test “implants” in a non-padded or sports bra, you’ll get a good idea of what that size will look like. And since it’s quite simple to fill the tights or bags with different amounts, you can easily check out different sizes.

With help from the Rice Test, you’ll have a very good idea of the real sizes you want to try when you visit an experienced surgeon for your breast surgery consultation.
