Body Type and Breast Implants

Phoenix women of all different body types have been able to improve their figure and get a huge boost in self-confidence by choosing a breast implant that fits their body type. Here’s a quick guide to the two different types of breast implants.

Round breast implants

The most common choice for women undergoing breast augmentation is a round implant. As their name suggests, these implants have a rounded, dome-like shape which has a number of benefits for patients. First, there is a huge range of sizes and projection (how far the implant sticks out from the body) to fit any body type. Plus, round implants tend to behave more like a natural breast in that they can adjust their shape when you’re standing up or laying down.

Teardrop breast implants

Phoenix women are beginning to choose teardrop implants more frequently and for several good reasons. While they cost more than round implants, teardrop implants have several advantages. First, they are made from a cohesive gel that is similar to a gummy bear. In fact, these implants are commonly referred to as “gummy bear implants.” This substance is less prone to leaking or rupture, and it also feels more natural than other silicone and saline implants. Teardrop implants also come in a huge range of shapes depending on which areas of your breast you want to “fill in” with your breast implants.

Phoenix women who are unsatisfied with their breasts should call Dr. Meger today at (602) 957-6000. As one of the most “in demand” plastic surgeons in the entire state, Dr. Meger has helped thousands of women get perky, youthful, and natural-looking breasts. We would love to do the same for you.
