I'm no expert on this subject, but I wonder if you're clear on what you 
really want?

Suppose, just for discussion purposes, that the default line thickness 
for the above plot is 0.1 unit (in same units as radius).  

Do you want this graphic in a 2 x 2 unit box?  (flat spot shaved off the 
the circular line on sides and top)

Or in a 2.1 x 2.1 unit box?  (box just touches the outer edge of the 
line; box size has to change depending on line thickness as well as 

For more complicated plots, with text or points or lines of varying 
sizes at various locations, calculating the box size in the latter type 
of situation gets a lot harder.  My impression is Mathematica copes with 
this by leaving a small default "safety region" around plots (?).
