Are Breast Implants Heavy?
Breast implants range in size and some can get quite large. When a patient is seeking breast augmentation surgery, they often have questions about how the breast implants will feel for them once they are placed. Of course, patients are reassured that breast implants feel natural on the outside, but what about how they feel for the patient carrying them? Are breast implants heavy?
For every 100cc of a silicone breast implant, the weight is approximately 0.23 pounds. Thus, for the average size implants, a pair will add about one to two pounds to the body overall. Depending on your starting body size, you may barely notice this once you adjust to the implants themselves.
Initially, breast implants may feel odd. As you heal, swelling subsides, and you grow used to the feeling, most people forget their breast implants are there. However, when looking at the largest implants available, 800cc, the two implants will add just over three and a half pounds. Thus, these implants are best for people with the right body type to carry them without additional stress on their back or neck.
