Shapes of Breast Implants
When you have decided to go forward with the idea of implants, there are two basic shapes of breast implants you may choose from: round and anatomical.

  • Round Implants

Round implants are the best option for most patients. They are typically placed under the pectoral muscle. The muscle helps to give the implants an even more natural shape. When a woman lies down, round implants settle back evenly, like normal breasts; when she stands up, gravity helps the implants assume a natural teardrop shape.

  • Anatomical Implants

Also called contoured or teardrop shape, anatomical implants are designed with a top and a bottom that resembles a tear drop. They are made with a textured surface to decrease the possibility of the implant shifting inside your breast pocket.  Dr. Stoker will help you to decide which of the implants are best for you.

Sizes of Breast Implants
How big is your chest now? What type of breast and body shape do you have? How big would you like it to be? The answers to these questions will determine what size implant you should choose. Implant sizes are expressed as cubic centimeters (cc), a measure of volume.  Implants also have different profiles, width and projection.  Dr. Stoker will help you understand all of these factors so that you may make the best decision to achieve your goals.
