Breast Augmentation - Which Shape Works the Best for You?


Breast Augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure that is performed to enhance the shape and size of a woman’s breast, usually through the placement of an implant behind each breast. It is also done using the patient’s own body fat. The breasts are enlarged by harvesting the fat from another part of the patient’s body, like the buttocks and abdomen.

An increasing number of women from different parts of the world visit India to undergo this procedure. The main reasons for the increasing popularity of breast augmentation in India are not only the affordable cost but also the world-class facilities and infrastructure that the plastic surgeons offer. Care and quality of the treatment provided by the plastic surgeons in India are at par with any other western country. If you are considering this procedure to enhance the shape of your breasts then read on to know about the implant shape.

Breast Implant Shape

The shape of the implant would have a profound effect on how your bosoms look after the procedure. While you might have a preferred shape in your mind, it is essential to know about the available options before settling on the one.

The two main shapes of breast implants are round and teardrop. There are several factors which determine the right shape for you, including:

  • Where you want to have incisions made
  • Your body type
  • Where you want the placement of the implants
  • The amount of breast tissue you currently have

Round Breast Implants

It is the most commonly used implant that resembles a compressed sphere.  It can vary in term of projection, and from low to high profile. Women who want to have fullness in the top parts of the breasts will consider high-profile, round implants. Patients who choose the round implants do so for the fullness, lift and cleavage. Contrary to it, there are some patients who feel that round implants look artificial and thus choose the tear-drop shaped implants because of the natural appearance they give. One of the main advantages of round shaped implants is that they will not change the appearance of the breast if they rotate. The implants can be smooth or textured, and they are usually less costly than teardrop implants.

Teardrop Breast Implants

They have sloped contours that are fuller at the bottom than at the top, giving the shape of natural breasts. Though the upper part of these implants is not as full as the round implants, they give greater projection than round shaped implants with the same amount of volume. Women who are looking for breast enhancement results that look more natural, teardrop implants make for the right choice. Teardrop implants costs more than round implants. They have to be textured in order to keep the implant from distorting and rotating the shape of the breast.

Your plastic surgeon would help you choose the best implant shape.  To make the most of your breast augmentation surgery, make sure you choose a board-certified and experienced surgeon.
