Maybe I heard wrong. Think he was promoting himself over other guy who is better and more know for implants. He wanted the work.
I found out size of the implant that each Dr was going to use. Figured that was better way to determine who I would be larger. Also ask if using RTE's. Only U realy can compare.
Think that is also a good idea.
I would not rely on the size of the implant the doctor says he will give you ahead of the actual surgery. When I originally consulted with my doctor, he thought I would probably get a 14cm and I ended up with 18cm+3RTE. With 14 he may have used RTE also, but that is still a 3 cm difference and that is 1.18". As others have said, until you are on the table for surgery and the doctor has made an incision, it is unknown exactly what they are working with.
