Breast Implant Shape

Breast Implant ShapeWomen’s bodies come in all shapes and sizes. Because of this, no single breast implant shape will be able to properly compliment every body type. During your breast implant consultation with Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Brown your full frame will be assessed. Based on Dr. Brown’s findings and your personal desires, the breast implant options best suited to meet your needs will be determined.

Round Breast Implants

Round breast implants look like a compressed sphere before they are filled. These implants may produce better cleavage due to their consistent shape and can freely rotate without impacting your appearance. Cleavage is mostly determined by what you look like before surgery.

Round implants can make the breasts look more spherical compared to teardrop implants. They create more fullness in the upper part of the breast, which many women want.

Teardrop Implants

Teardrop implants were formerly called “anatomical” implants because they look like more like the native breast shape. They have more projection at the base of the implant and gradually taper at the top. Teardrop implants produce better projection in the low to mid areas and tend to provide less fullness at the upper part of the breast.

Teardrop implants are most often textured to help prevent rotation as movement in any direction can impact their appearance.
