If you are planning to undergo breast augmentation and would like to get natural-looking results, choosing the right shaped breast implants is very important. But what are the best shaped breast implants.
Breast implants are usually made from silicone gel or sterile salt water. Saline breast implants are filled at the time of surgery, while silicone implants are pre-filled.
What are the best shaped breast implants?
There are two main types of breast implant shapes, round and teardrop shaped. Round implants are circular and have the same projection on the top and bottom, whereas teardrop implants are narrow in the upper pole and fuller at the bottom, so they resemble the natural breast shape. Round implants are the more popular choice. They provide more fullness in the upper pole, and give the breasts a well-proportioned appearance.
Round implants may be saline or silicone-filled, but the teardrop shape is only available as silicone implants.
Which breast implant shape is right for you?
The breast implant shape that’s right for you will depend on your body shape, and the look you find most desirable. Other factors to consider when deciding on the best implant shape include the diameter and degree of projection of the implant. It is always important to choose an implant that is the right fit for your body type.
When considering breast implant shape patients should be aware that breast implants may move around in the pocket after placement. When round implants rotate the breasts still look the same, but when teardrop implants shift, they can make the breasts appear misshapen.
