What’s the difference between round and anatomical (teardrop-shaped) implants?
The difference between round and anatomical (teardrop-shaped) implants is that round implants add volume to the upper part of the breast giving a lifted look, while contoured (anatomical) implants give a more discreet look more in-keeping with the natural shape of the breast.
How do I decide the size and shape that’s right for me?
Breast size and shape should be something to talk about with your surgeon. You’ll also want to discuss whether to use round or anatomical shaped implants and review the many choices of size and weight available. You’ll need to think before your consultation about the shape and overall size that you are seeking, then talk with your surgeon about which implants will get you as close to your desired shape as possible. You should be aware that if you undergo reconstruction to one breast, it will not be identical to your natural breast.
Will my breast look fake if I go under aesthetic surgery?
It depends if you want them to! Each woman’s body is different, and before and after photos of women who have had breast implant surgery aren’t always representative of what you’ll look like. If you want natural-looking results, make it clear to your surgeon from the outset, and they’ll advise what’s possible.
How long will my new breasts last?
Your breast implants will need to be replaced during the course of your life. Implants are not lifetime devices and are subject to wear and tear like any other implant device (e.g. tooth fillings, heart valves, hip joints).* *Cohen BE, Biggs TM, Cronin ED, Collins DR Jr. Assessment and longevity of the silicone gel breast implant.
