You’ve decided to get Breast Augmentation Surgery with implants. You go online, and research to find the most “natural” looking implants and come across so many different terms and types of implants, round? anatomical? gummy bear implants? textured? smooth? We know it can get confusing; when it comes to breast implants there are a lot of choices but don’t worry, we’ll help you understand the different breast implant shapes and perhaps help you, and with your Board-Certified Surgeon recommendations, have an idea or decided which one is best for you. In this blog post, we will discuss Anatomical Breast Implants.
One of the shape options you have is Anatomical Breast Implants. Anatomical Breast Implants, also referred to as teardrop implants are a type of breast implant that is shaped like the natural breast with a fuller bottom pole and a “thinner” upper pole. If you look at yourself from the front, it looks like an oval shape but from your side, it is thinner at the top with more volume at the bottom, like natural breasts. Anatomical breast implants are all textured, cohesive, and “form-stable” to reduce the risk of the breast implant shifting, moving, or flipping inside the breast pocket. Another property to help maintain their shape is the highly cohesive gel that has a thick, gummy bear-like, consistency that offers predictable shape and projection.
Because of the stable and predictable priorities, anatomical implants are a superior choice for some women. Anatomical countered devices work very well for women with a limited amount of natural breast tissue. For these patients, anatomical-shaped implants look more natural than their round implant counterparts. Each woman is unique, with unique combinations of breast size, breast shape, chest size and shape, desired aesthetic results, personal preference, and medical history which means the selection of the breast implant best fit for your specific case.
