Breast implants: do you measure up?

Many women who come in for breast augmentation have a certain cup size in mind, but cup size has many variables due to patient height, weight , chest(rib)cavity or amount of excess skin.

During a consultation, Dr. Peterson will use a skin fold caliper and measuring tools to determine your breast base diameter and breast height. He will also measure breast tissue thickness of the upper and lower breast and determine the position of the nipple and areola as well as the amount of "droopiness" of the breast. He will use this data to help you choose an implant that "fits" your body.

Using measurements of your breasts helps Dr. Peterson evaluate an implant in a more accurate way to match your desired goals. Read more about breast implants in Topeka on our website.
