Your Breast Augmentation
How to get the result that you want from your Breast Augmentation
Should I have ’round’ or ‘teardrop’ implants?
Teardrop shaped implants have the advantage of giving a more natural contour to the breast particularly in patients with little breast tissue. However, they are more expensive and they have the potential to rotate, (which doesn’t happen with round implants).
For patients with some breast tissue to cover the implant, a round implant is better suited. Round implants come in different profiles or projections (meaning how large they are from a side on view) and this dictates how much fullness they give in the upper part of the breast. Some patients need to have fullness restored in the upper part of the breast if the breast volume has descended whereas others prefer more fullness to give a more pronounced cleavage.
What volume implant should I have?
The measurements of your breasts before the operation is the key deciding factor when it comes to choosing the right implants. Once your breasts have been measured, we can talk about the various shapes and sizes of implants based on how large they are from a sideways view – we call this the projection. Round and teardrop shaped implants come in different projections, so it is not just simply about choosing the volume. We have sizers in the clinic and examples of implants with different projections so we can make a plan together to achieve the result that you are hoping for. Everybody is different and the results are not only dependant on the implants that we choose, but also on your current breast shape and size. No two people are the same, which means that everyone gets a bespoke fitting for their implants with Jonathan Staiano and our job is to find the perfect implants for each patient.
