Breast implants are available in two standard shapes: round and teardrop. Each type has its own advantages, and the one you choose will primarily depend on your desired cosmetic outcome. Round implants can be filled with either saline or silicone, and are the most common shape for implants. An important advantage of round implants is that if they shift or rotate, it will not affect the shape of your breasts.
If you select silicone implants, the teardrop shape is also an option. As the name implies, these implants are fuller at the bottom than at the top. This can often give breasts a more natural appearance. If a teardrop implant rotates, your breast may have a lopsided look. However, Dr. Madjidi typically uses textured teardrop implants, which are much less likely to rotate after placement. Gummy bear implants are a relatively new option in breast implants. These implants contain a more dense silicone than standard silicone implants. They are most commonly teardrop-shaped.
Both round and teardrop implants are available with low, moderate, and high profiles. Low profile implants protrude less, while high profile implants protrude the farthest. For many women, especially those with smaller frames, low profile implants may provide more natural-looking results. However, if you have a broader frame or you want a more noticeable enhancement, high profile implants can be an excellent choice. Like many women, you may find that moderate profile implants strike a nice balance between the two. Moderate profile implants can also add width to your breasts, so if you want to enhance your narrow bust, this may be the right size for you.
Breast implants are available in a wide range of sizes, providing everything from a subtle enhancement to more voluptuous results. Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery in the world, and implant manufacturers provide a vast selection of sizes to meet virtually every woman’s goals.
The Importance of a Consultation
Choosing the right implants is an extremely important decision that can have an enormous impact on your results. To help you decide, you will have a thorough consultation with Dr. Madjidi. She will ask about your goals and activity level, and she will carefully examine your body type and skin elasticity to determine which implants can benefit you the most. You should come to your consultation ready to discuss specific goals for treatment. It may help to bring pictures to use as a reference.
