Orange County Breast Augmentation Sizing

The most important aspect of Orange County breast augmentation is breast implant sizing. Dr. Farbod Esmailian uses what is called the “rice test” to determine the perfect implant sizing for his patients. The rice test is a simple way for the patient to simulate what she would look like with a particular sized breast implant. It is easy to do and can be done in the privacy of your own home.

What you need is a pair of nylon stockings, measuring cup, sports bra and rice. You begin by cutting the stockings at the ankles. Then you measure out 1 1/2 cup of rice and pour it into each stocking. The stocking is tied loosely enough so the rice can move around and be able to shape to your chest. Then try on the sports bra and place each stocking into the sports bra. Make certain the rice is sitting and covering your breast entirely. Now try on many different clothes and see how the volume looks on you. If it is too small, you add more rice, if it is too big then rice is taken out, and once the desired volume is reached, this measurement is given to Orange County breast augmentation specialist, Dr. Esmailian. He and yourself at that point in addition to your measurements, your current size, your desired size and the rice test will sit down and determine your breast implant size.
