No one really knew what the measurement in cc’s meant until breast implants became popular. Now everyone talks in cc’s when it comes to breast and butt implants.
When you are preparing for a breast augmentation, you scour the internet looking for women who look like you and how many cc’s their implants are. You ask your friends how many cc’s they are. You might even try on baggies of rice or sizers in the Plastic Surgeon’s office to decide on how many cc’s you will pick for your augmentation.
There are also choices in breast implant shape (round or anatomic) and profile (moderate plus, high profile) but the big decision to take into consideration is how many cc’s.
When it comes to a butt augmentation however, it’s TOTALLY different. There are a few reasons why the cc’s are not as important as the dimensions (length, width, and projection) like they are with breast augmentation.
Breast implants have a soft silicone or liquid saline so they can get compressed by your tissues. Gluteal implants are a solid silicone that are soft to touch but don’t conform to their surroundings as much. You pick the specific size and shape in order to get the booty you want.
This matters more in butt augmentation. Not only does the amount of projection determine how much your new booty sticks out, it also determines how wide your buttock looks. More projection equals a wider buttock.
CCs in a round implant does not equal the same size in an oblong implant for butt implants. With breast implants, you can pick round silicone or anatomic, but your current breast shape and gravity are going to create a similar look either way with some fullness up top and natural slope as gravity pulls the silicone to the bottom of the breast. The buttock implant stays its own shape so the specific length, width, and projection determine the shape.
So, if it’s that complicated, how do you pick your gluteal implant size? At ROXY Plastic Surgery, we’ll take some measurements on your current body. We’ll also ask you to share some wish pictures of what your goals are and what kind of butt shape you are looking for.
