Breast Implant Sizes and Shape
We work with only the finest quality breast implants from from Nagor and Motiva. Our range of over 200 different sizes and shapes, ensures you will have the ultimate choice in breast implants. Because your needs are unique, we will talk to you at length about your breast profile and implants, the look you wish to achieve, listen to your needs, offer you advice and help you decide which breast implant is right for you in terms of your size and shape.
The size of your new breasts will be affected by the diameter of the implant (determining the ‘fullness’ of your breasts) and its projection (how ‘prominent’ you’d like your breasts to appear).
Implants can be chosen by diameter and have the option of three projections, leading to a more tailored solution for you. Your surgeon will assist you in making the right choice.
The shape of things to come…
We offer round and anatomical breast implants. MyBreast’s surgeons will help you select the breast implant size and shape that will give you the shape and contour you wish to achieve.
Round breast implants
Round implants are sometimes perceived to produce a more ‘fake’ or ‘augmented’ look. Generally speaking this is just a common misconception, and their popularity is testament to their success.
The round implant is the implant of choice in the UK and is generally suitable for the majority of patients. Round implants are sometimes perceived to produce a more ‘fake’ or ‘augmented’ look. Generally speaking this is just a common misconception, and their popularity is testament to their success.
In the unlikely event a round implant ‘turns’ in its pocket, it will remain symmetrical and not distort the shape of the breast.
Anatomical breast implants
Anatomical breast implants are shaped like a teardrop. Designed to follow the body’s natural lines and produce a more natural looking breast, they have more volume at the bottom than the top and appear more oval when viewed from the front.
Although initially brought into practice for use in reconstruction surgeries, they’re now widely used for breast augmentation purposes and often an appropriate choice for women with very little breast volume or for those who have a particular chest anatomy.
It is possible for anatomical implants to ‘turn’ or flip in the pocket. If this does occur the rotation will cause the breast to look lopsided. For this reason, all anatomical implants are designed with a textured surface that adheres to the tissue, helping to keep the implant in place.
