What Does CC mean breast Implant
Breast implants are measured in cubic centimeters, or cc’s, rather than bra cup sizes. This provides an exact measurement of the volume in an implant.
For patients who have an average height and weight, as well as naturally wear bras in an A or B cup, they can expect an increase of about 1 cup size for every 200cc’s they receive. Women who are taller and have a wider build will require a larger implant (or more cc’s) to achieve a 1-cup increase. There are several different breast implant types, sizes, profiles, and textures from which to choose.
Breast Implants are Measured in Cubic Centimeters (CC), not Cup Size
Breast implants aren’t measured in cup size. Instead, they’re measured in cubic centimeters (cc’s). Cubic centimeters are the preferred unit of measurement for breast implants because there is no standard cup size. A C cup bra from one manufacturer may differ from a C cup made by other manufacturers. By using cc’s, we are able to provide a more standardized system of measurement.
There is a wide range of implant sizes. Your breast implants can be as small as 80 cc’s and as large as 850 cc’s. In general, a 200 cc breast implant is roughly equivalent to an increase of one cup size in smaller bra sizes (32 and 34). For larger bra sizes (36 and above), you will need a slightly larger implant volume to achieve the same increase of one cup size.
