Can you try on breast implants?

During your surgeon consultation you will discuss the outcome and appearance you are looking to achieve with breast surgery and the surgeon will make implant size and shape recommendations based on your physiology, existing breast tissue and body shape. The surgeon will then advise a range of breast implant sizes for you to try on.  

Immediately following your surgeon consultation, you will meet with a MYA nurse who will assist you with the breast implant sizers, this a great opportunity to get a feel for the shape, size and weight of different breast implants. All you need to do is pop the implant sizer into a sports bra, put on a vest top and have a look in the mirror!

It is important to remember that this is not an exact science, more of a guide to help you envision what breasts implants will look like on you.   

MYA’s top tips for trying on breast implants: 

  • You must bring your own sports bra to try on the breast implants 

  • We recommend taking lots of photos from different angles for you to look back at 

  • Don’t be afraid to try different sizes  

  • Trust your surgeons advise – they are the breast experts!
