How much do breast implants weigh?
You are very lucky that you can select your won breast size, but beauty does not always matter with the size. Select the optimal size for you before a surgery. The implantations are measured in cc or cubic centimeters. Higher number of ccindicates larger size. Women are like to implant at least 400cc but it varies with the body shape. Doctors suggest to implant size that your body can able to bear it physically. Because there is a possibility of lifelong health problems with larger implants, like trauma, stretchmarks, re-operation, wasting of tissue due to high pressure, wrinkling, rippling and thickening of tissue and muscle.

If you think that how much weight you have to bear after implant, we are providing the calculation. It may help you to take the right decision.
Measurement of weight for silicone implantation
1cc silicon weighs 0.0375 ounces
If you want a set of 400cc breast implants,
Total weigh, 400cc2 = 800cc (for two implants)
800cc0.0375 = 30.0 ounces
To get the answer in pounds, the total ounces divide by 16 (as 1pound equals to 16 ounces)
30.0 16 = 1.875 pounds, or approximately 1.9 pounds
A shorter way is to take the weight of both implants and then divide by 426.67. Example:
Measurement of weight for saline implantation
If you have a set of 400cc saline implants,
400cc 2 = 800 cc
Then 800cc is divided by 29.547, and you will get the answer in ounces.
800cc 29.547 = 27. 075 ounces.
Then divide it again by 16 to get the answer in pounds
27.075 16 = 1.69 pounds or approximately 1.7 pounds
It is clear that saline implants are a little bit lighter than silicone gel implants. However, the new generations if breast implantation surgeries are done with silicone gel.
