Moderate Plus or HP


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I had my consult in March and my surgeon recommended: Mentor MicroTextured Teardrop 350cc, CPG 332, Tall Height, Moderate Profile Plus, Dual Plane.

My stats are: Height 157cm, BWD 12cm, Weight 51-52kgs, 10A cup size. Overall I’m petite.

When he recommended the 350cc in MPP, next size up is 430cc in HP but he said and I quote “430cc I think will be too big” although he said when examining my breasts “There’s a fair bit of volume to fill” (due to breastfeeding). He’s known to be conservative..

My next consult to retry sizers is in June and my surgery is early Oct, so I have plenty of time to decide! ?

The only thing that’s doing my head in is not knowing how much I’ll lose going under the muscle, hence why I’m considering HP to make up for the loss. ?

Can you still achieve cleavage and side boob with HP’s?

Hi, I'm booked in for my BA this Thursday. I am very similar stats to you, 160cm, 53-53kg, bwd 13cm and starting at 10a.

My surgeon has recommended 350cc smooth round, mod + under the muscle. I opted for 375cc as I was able to go up to 400cc and I know you lose approx 25 going under the muscle. I think choosing sizers is the most difficult part of the process. I am still so very uncertain I've chose the right size and will be so dissatisfied if I look too conservative. I have never had large breasts, but I've breastfed 4 kids for a total of 4 years and was once upon a time a b cup. I have no upper pole and I know that the rounds will give me the fullness that I'm after. I was unsure as to why my surgeon recommended mod + but I called to ask why and the nurse said it's because I wasn't after the stuck on look that high profile can sometimes create. I know my surgeon has a good reputation so I am just putting my faith in him and fingers crossed I get the outcome I desire. 

You have plenty of time to make up your mind, go back and have a second consult, research as much as you can and you'll soon decide what's best for you. 

Goid luck ☺️

Thanks for responding ?

I have no upper pole either. My surgeon doesn’t recommend rounds due to the position of my nipples. The tall height teardrop should give me a nice upper pole. Anything will look better to how it is now haha

I breastfed my 3 kids for only 2-3mths but my boobs are destroyed regardless lol. I have faint white stretchmarks on my breasts which is a constant reminder I did have decent size boobs (B-C) when I had milk ?

With the surgeon saying the 430cc may be too big for my petite frame, I don’t know if he said that because he’s conservative. A lot of women who had him said he’s conservative. Maybe I’m having boob greed? Gah I don’t know ? Considering I’m forking out $10k, I don’t want the end result looking not much different to wearing a padded bra if I’m going under the muscle!

My surgeon was very honest after measuring me up he gave me the option of 295cc or 325cc I wanted to go as big as I could without looking stupid and quote what he said “325 is not too big for you it will just give you more side boob” now two and a half months in I have great clevage and side boob with more results to show. 

however I got round implants because my upper pole was extremely flat so I needed to get round to give me that upper pole projection. 

I got 325cc textured silicone high profile Natrelle implants. 

Height: 168cm weight: 58kg and I think my BWD: 11.5

i was a small 10B now Full 10DD

I'm 53kgs, Bwd 12cms.  Started with very little made worse by breast feeding.  I got 320cc's medium profile and worried they would be too big.  2 months ish post op and they don't seem too big at all.  In hindesight I would have gone for the lower profile to look more natural.  But I do like the volume.  don't forget about the feel, teardrops tend to be firmer.  I got motiva rounds, made for women who want a teardrop look but with the softness of a round.  Keep reasearching till you feel comfortable.

It’s the profile I’m mainly researching but I guess I’ll have to wait until my next consult to discuss those two options further.

Not only do I want to make up for the loss by going under the muscle but if he says I have a fair bit of volume to fill (elasticity due to breastfeeding no doubt), I thought maybe high profile would be a good option. Plus I read that high profile are suited for petite women, so I don’t knowwww ?

It's so hard isn't it. I spent months agonising over sizes and now I'm about to have a revision because I feel too big!! I had a consult with Dr Kollias initially and then went with Dr Cooter. Dr Kollias recommended Moderate profile allergen (equivalent to mentor mod+) and less than 300cc. Dr Cooter recommended 350cc HP because I was narrow (11cm BWD) and the only way to get more volume was to go forward (projection). I can understand the reasoning behind this and most women would be thrilled with my outcome. I can say they look really good naked and they match my goal photos. They're just too big for me and in hindsight I should have asked for something more conservative. If I wear bras with any kind of support, they look very rounded in the upper pole because I'm so thin. When you're thinner and have a narrower ribcage, less cc's go a long way. So unless you really want to be 'the biggest you can go', you don't have to choose HP simply because you're small. In fact, I think sometimes that's a reason NOT to choose it. They can end up looking too round and globular. Like I said, naked they're great. But in bikinis and bras and everyday clothes that lift them.. huge). I find myself downplaying them with sports bras and bralettes. Women who are more muscular or are carrying a little more weight in general may need HP to get that definition in the cleavage that they want. But don't underestimate a lower profile and lower cc's when you're small. I'm tall (5'8) but thin and I can make 350cc look huge. I never wear padded bras or even anything with the slightest contouring because of it. You need to ask yourself if you'd be more disappointed being too small or too big. For me, it's the latter. Everyone will tell you that you'll wish you went bigger but that's not the case for everyone. There are plenty of women on real self who've downsized or even explanted. So I just think it's important you hear from both sides.

@Kaleidoscope_Eyes I have 5 months until my surgery and naturally I'm stressing myself out regarding size, as most women do. I don't know if 350cc MPP is considered very conservative.

My main concern is the volume I'll lose by going under the muscle and fill out my stretched skin due to breastfeeding (have white stretchmarks sadly). I don't want to spend $10k on boobs that look not much different to the size of my daily bras if you know what I mean?

I'm going ahead with the surgery with Dr K. I have read other threads of women who had him and stressed he is very conservative, so I don't know if 350cc is a very conservative size.

It's a shame you're getting an explant because your breasts look in proportion to your body. They look amazing on you :)

Yep I'm fully aware the teardrops are firmer, doesn't bother me though. Anything is better than how my boobs are now :lol: My surgeon didn't recommend rounds due to how my nipples sit but that's okay. I just want a natural look overall. :)

My upper pole is flat too, lost everything since having kids unfortunately haha. The tall height teardrop will give me that nice upper pole slope giving me a natural outcome. :)

My ps said to me that 350cc is considered conservative. If you have a choice between 2 sizes I suggest going the larger.    

I'm only 8dpo and I completely regret not going the next size up regardless of how many changes my breasts are going to go through over the months. 

Ask yourself, if you woke from surgery and your boobs were too small or too big, which would you prefer?

Thanks Teardrops. I can appreciate that they look good and I really love them naked. I just feel too heavy in clothes and for me, that's more important. I think a modest downsize of 75-100cc will be enough to make me feel better because I don't hate them. They're just that bit too big, especially in the upper pole. I'm always downplaying them. I think losing 1.2cm in projection (HP to MPP) should make a difference. I'm keeping the same or a similar width depending on how low the surgeon goes on the day. If I go for 250 or 225, I'm only losing 1 and 2mm more from the projection than with the 275cc but 4 and 8mm from the width. So I don't think 225 will really be an option. I'll likely end up with 275 or 250 if I'm lucky. The surgeon doesn't want to take too much from the width because they'll be too loose in the pockets. And I don't want a gappy look either. I just hope I'm happy after all this stressing. :( 

And yes, Dr Kollias is considered quite conservative by most. But it depends on the look you want. There are a few women on here who had to push for bigger sizes with him and ended up very happy with their look. It sounds like you are leaning towards the bigger implant and if you'd rather end up a little bigger than smaller, just do it. You may lose a little bit going under the muscle but once the muscle relaxes and they drop and fluff, I really doubt it'll be too significant. My sister has 450cc implants and she's a similar build to me and she loves hers!! Yet I feel too big with 350 :lol: so it's very individual. No-one else can tell you what's right for you. We can help guide you but that's all. If only we could test drive the final look for a week before we decide, it'd make the process much easier!

@Kaleidoscope_Eyes That’s understandable if you just want to look more modest when it comes to clothes. I wouldn’t mess with the width either, just opt for MPP for less projection. Do you have to fork out all that money again for revision? It’s another big decision to make and you’ll never know whether you’ll be happy until it’s done. Hopefully for your sake they end up being perfect for you ?

I appreciate everyone’s feedback, very informative!

Haha yeah if only the sizers we try on is what it’ll appear 100%, including under the muscle but unfortunately that’s not the case! ?
