If you have been thinking about undergoing breast enhancement surgery, one key factor to really think about is the implant shape. Maybe you’ve overheard friends talking about the two implant shapes and are wondering which one would best suit your body.

You should always look for a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon before you make your decision. Below is some helpful information for you to remember when trying to decide which breast implant shape is right for you.

Your body type matters

Most women desire a rounded shape breast, whereas others want a breast enhancement procedure that will correct sagging with a more natural teardrop shape. Both have a different appeal and what looks good on one woman may look entirely different on another.

Incision site and implant placement

There are a variety of types of placements for breast implants, as well as different placement locations for incisions. It all depends on your body history, where you want the incision to appear and what your breast tissue is like.

Round breast implants

Round breast implants are the most sought-after shape of implants. Following the surgery, the breast projection looks more spherical. If you are going for a fuller look and want to correct sagging round implants, these may be precisely what you’re looking for. Generally, these type of implants are cheaper than teardrop implants.

Teardrop breast implants

Teardrop implants have a more natural look; the bottom is fuller than the top of the breasts which provides the breasts with a more tear-dropped shape. Don’t worry, the fullness of the breast is still there; its just been moved more to the; it merely is concentrated more in the bottom portion of the breast.

Consider your budget

Finally, when making your decision, take the cost of the implants themselves into consideration. Teardrop shaped breast implants normally cost more than round breast implants because they require a textured surface to prevent distortion and rotation.

Getting breast implants is an excellent investment in yourself. But it is not a decision that should be made quickly or lightly. Do some research and learn everything you can about the surgical procedures, shapes and types of implants available.

Knowledge is a powerful thing and arming yourself with as much knowledge as possible is a great thing. Once you’ve done thorough research, look for a board-certified plastic surgeon and book a consultation.
