The decision to get breast implants is exciting.
You’ll have your implants for a long time, so it’s worthwhile understanding your choices.
Breast Implant Shapes
There are two main types of breast implant shapes to choose from: Round and Teardrop. Round breast implants are the most common and come in a range of projections, ranging from low to high.
1. Round breast implants are full at the top, making them a popular choice for women looking to correct sagging.
2. Teardrop breast implants are fuller at the bottom than at the top, giving the breasts a natural shape. Women who want a very natural look and feel typically choose teardrop breast implants over round implants. Fullness isn’t lost, it’s simply concentrated at the bottom of the breasts. For women with loose breast skin, the “form stability” of shaped implants actually promotes more upper breast fullness than similar sized round implants which settle to the bottom of the breast skin envelope in standing position.
