Modern breast implants—particularly gummy bear breast implants—come in two primary shapes, round and teardrop. Knowing the right one for you when choosing breast implants is not always straightforward. Is there one that looks more natural than the other? Is one overall better? Let’s look at the question, “What’s better teardrop or round implants?”
Both round and teardrop breast implants can look perfectly natural. It ultimately depends on the end result you want and the starting shape of your breasts. Teardrop implants are designed to mimic the natural shape of the breast. Thus, it is known to create extremely natural looking results. Though, in patients who may lack natural vertical height, want rounder breasts, or are focused on creating cleavage, then round breast implants may be the better option.
Dr. Ludwig Allegra at Northwest Face & Body makes use of Vectra 3D imaging to scan the shape of your body. You can then virtually “try on” different breast implant shape and sizes to find the one that provides you the exact look you want. This takes much of the worry and uncertainty out of choosing breast implants in the traditional way.
