St. Paul, MN (PressExposure) October 28, 2008 -- L.W. Gatz has developed the Purlz Cup Size Calculator to help women who are considering breast augmentation choose their breast implant size. The online calculator offers a suggested range of breast implant size options based upon a womanâs current bra cup size.
For women considering breast augmentation, one of the most critical decisions is their choice of breast implant size. A recent study shows that the most common breast augmentation revision procedure is simply to change the size of the implant.
The Purlz Breast Sizing System is unique in that patients can wear the tester breast implants in a variety of activities and in their favorite clothing. Unlike plastic bags filled with water or rice, the Purlz Breast Sizing System is very comfortable to wear all day and/or evening. A patient can test out different sizes, try on all her clothing, go shopping and basically âlive withâ her new breast size over an extended period of time. The goal of the system is to help the patient internalize the breast sizing decision by actually experiencing various breast implant sizes.
The Purlz Cup Size Calculator offers women a way to estimate how the Purlz tester implants may alter their current bra size. After arriving at a favorite breast size option, women can wear the Purlz to their doctorâs office for a breast augmentation consultation. Depending upon many factors, including the patientâs body type and placement option, the doctor and patient will discuss the actual breast implant size that will most closely match the look achieved with her favorite size of Purlz.
Doctors have been using the system with patients to engage them immediately in the breast sizing decision. In some cases, patients have the option to wear the system out of the office while experimenting with various breast implant sizes on their own time.
Certainly, viewing before and after photos or computerized 3-D images is an important part of the process. However, these images primarily address the visual aspect of the breast size decision. Methods such as âthe rice bag testâ might help with a preview of potential breast implant sizes while standing in front of the mirror, but is not an adequate method for wearing a tester implant throughout the day.
For many of the most popular breast implant sizes, The Purlz Cup Size Calculator also offers links to breast augmentation videos about women with similar breast sizes who have opted for the procedure. Seeing a video of women similar in size and shape go through the breast augmentation process can help a woman make her decision.
Using the Purlz Cup Size Calculator allows a patient to estimate tester breast implant sizes. Wearing The Purlz Breast Sizing System helps a woman try on various breast implant sizes on her own body, versus simply looking at photos of breast implants on other women in before and after photos. By consulting with her doctor after wearing Purlz, a patient can literally show the doctor on her own body how she wants to look with her new breast size.
