Anatomical Implants

Breast Augmentation, Mammaplasty (Implants & Enlargement) how it can make you look and feel good

Anatomical breast implants are shaped, or "contoured" instead of round. They were initially used for breast reconstruction purposes, but eventually became popular with women having elective breast augmentation surgery.

What are some other names for anatomical breast implants?

Anatomical implants are also called teardrop breast implants, contoured breast implants, and shaped breast implants.

Why do all anatomical breast implants have textured shells?

Anatomical breast implants have a textured shells because they need to adhere to the tissue in the pocket the surgeon creates for each implant. Adherence is necessary so that the implant doesn't "flip" in the pocket. When an anatomical breast implant flips, the lower portion (the part with the most projection) can actually wind up at the top of the breast. This makes the breast look deformed.

m o d e l

Anatomical implant is generally related to the implantation of breasts. Anatomical implant is also called as contour implant. This is one of the types of breast implantation. This was developed to reconstruct the breast structure of the patients. The tear like and bottom heavy appearance of the breast gives it a natural look. Thus anatomical type of implant is considered to be the better option during implantation.

Anatomical implant is a comparatively difficult task to do. This is because it requires a well-experienced surgeon. This is because this type of implantation needs proper placement of the breast during implantation. The positioning of the breast should be done properly. Any type of shifting or flipping in case of the breast during implantation can cause a total distortion of the breast can make a distorted shape.

Structure wise the anatomical implant looks different from different views. From the front view it is oval in shape. From the side view the anatomical breast is heavy or large in size at the bottom than at the top part. A large volume of the anatomical implant is at the bottom portion of the breast.

The anatomical implant has a textured surface. This textured surface allows a good integration with the breast tissue that lie in the surroundings. The advantage of this type of implantation is that the shape is retained for a longer period as compared to any other type. The forward projection in case of the anatomical implant is much better than the round type of implant. As it lays emphasis on texture the tissues surrounding the implant can become more sensitive than normal.

The length of the anatomical implant is more than the width of the implant. It is because of this reason that for the women with a smaller chest cavity it is difficult to carry the anatomical implant.

   Other Implant Options:
  Depending on the look you wish to achieve and your unique physical characteristics you and your doctor will choose from a variety of implant styles, shapes, sizes and textures. Some implants give the breast a more rounded appearance, while others create a breast shaped like a teardrop.

  Saline implants are the most popular implant option in the United States. The watery sterile saline solution used in breast implants is isotonic (has the same salt concentration as the normal cells of the body and the blood) and presents no health risk to the patient.
