Which Breast Implant Shape is Right for Me?

Do you have questions about breast implants or breast augmentation in NJ? Call Associates in Plastic Surgery at 800-860-1435 to schedule a consultation today.The New Jersey plastic surgeons at Associates in Plastic Surgery offer both round and teardrop shaped breast implants. These different shaped implants allow for better customization of your breast augmentation procedure – helping us complement your natural features with breast implants that accentuate your curves and produce the look you find most desirable. When performed correctly, it should be nearly impossible for anyone to tell which shape breast implant you have.

A recent study published in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, illustrates this perfectly. For this study, a group of board-certified plastic surgeons and a group of plastic surgery nurses were shown before and after pictures of similarly shaped women who had undergone breast augmentation. While the plastic surgeons did slightly better, neither group was able to correctly identify the shape of breast implant used in every case. This suggests that, when breast augmentation is properly performed, implant shape serves to accentuate existing features as opposed to creating an entirely new look.

Producing natural-looking results is the job of our plastic surgeons and we take great strides to ensure every patient is matched with the breast implant ideal for her needs. We offer silicone and saline breast implants in a variety of styles, allowing us to meet the needs of women of all shapes and sizes. If you are considering breast augmentation in New Jersey or New York, we encourage you to call 800-860-1435 to schedule a consultation at one of our Marlboro, Edison, or Warren, NJ offices.
