Now that you have made the decision to get breast implants, the next step to take is to decide what shape works best for your body. Should you get the popular round breast shape, or do you opt for the teardrop shaped implant? This can be a critical decision and the first step is to find a qualified cosmetic surgeon, get all your questions answered and all the information you can to make this major decision. Read on to learn more about the selection process and why having the right medical team on board is so important.

Know Your Body
The first thing to consider, according to the experts at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, is to understand that the implants you choose should conform to the shape and size of your body and not someone else’s. What looks good on one person, may not be right for another person so think about your current shape and size and the realistic goals you are trying to achieve with this surgery.
The implant placement and incision site are also a key factor in your decision. Depending on your breast tissue and the type of implant you decide to get (as well as other factors like whether you will nurse children), there are different placements and incisions that will need to be made.
Round implants are the most common shape of breast implant. They come in four different types ranging from low to high projection. After surgery, the breast will appear spherical and fuller at the top. If sagging breasts are an issue for you, then this implant is probably your best option as it will make your breasts look fuller. Round implants also tend to cost less.
Teardrop implants tend to have a more natural look because the bottom is fuller than the top. If you are looking for a more natural augmentation, then this is probably your best option, however they tend to be more expensive than round implants. As with a round implant, the breast will appear fuller, it is just concentrated more at the bottom of the breast rather than at the top.
The Right Medical Team and a Realistic Budget
Considering the cost of the implants is also a key process in coming to the right decision. You are investing in yourself so make sure you do your homework and understand the benefits and set backs of all your options. A qualified cosmetic surgeon will help you take all of this information into consideration and talk you through all of your options.
