There are two types of breast implants for breast augmentation, the anatomical and the round, each with its advantages and disadvantages. The anatomical have this name by having a form of “drop”, the feature is that better conform to the natural anatomy of the chest. They were created to naturally rebuild the breasts of women who had to undergo breast removal for breast cancer.
This implant allows a more natural result than with the round, increase the volume in the lower pole and have a thinner upper pole so not noticeable when using the prosthesis support.
These prostheses are implanted from sub mammary rather than from the areola of the nipple. They are a bit more complicated to put it is necessary to create a pocket that fits the shape of a drop to avoid the famous rotation, but it is not an impediment to experienced hands in this type of prosthesis. As recently stated, the disadvantage with anatomical implants is that once placed the body can rotate when the capsule gun, and as a result it is possible that the breasts are asymmetrical and must make a correction from the outside. In very few cases require further surgery to properly accommodate the prosthesis.
Dentures make the breast round is filled homogeneously and can be placed in the halo. This type of implant is available in 3 profiles: high, medium or low.
The low profile prosthetic make the breast look wider, get the high profile that the breast protrudes outward and medium profile have an effect somewhere in between. The choice depends on the width profile of the chest, chest type of correction and physical characteristics of each woman.
The advantage of these implants is that when the woman is standing, are affected by gravity and acquire the “teardrop” not involve the risk that once placed will rotate and change the original form, as if moving remain round. Another detail is that silicone prostheses are round cohesive gel soft and a rigid anatomical, which suggests that the former are more soft and natural to the touch.
