When it comes to breast implants, there are a lot of choices: saline, silicone, cohesive gel silicone, round, anatomical, etc. It can make your head spin, especially if you’re not familiar with the many options and their differences. Today, let’s take a deeper look at the anatomical breast implants.
What Are Anatomical Breast Implants?
Anatomical breast implants (also called teardrop implants) are a type of implant that is shaped more like the natural breast. From the front, it looks like an oval shape, but from the side, it is thinner at the top and more volumous at the bottom. Anatomical implants are all textured to reduce the risk of the implant shifting or flipping in the breast pocket.
What Are the Benefits of Anatomical Breast Implants?
Anatomical breast implants do have some benefits, but not for every woman. They work best in women with a limited amount of natural breast tissue. For these patients, the anatomical shape helps the implant to look more natural. In women with sufficient breast tissue, a skilled surgeon can easily camouflage any implant shape.

Choosing Anatomical Implants
If you choose to use anatomical implants for your breast augmentation surgery, make sure you choose your surgeon carefully.

If your implant flips, you will need breast revision surgery to correct it.
