Breast Augmentation Before and After
There are many different shapes, sizes and profiles of breast implants. On this gallery page we will share some breast augmentation before and after photographs to show the variety of results. When considering these results you must remember that each individual result will vary as everyone’s anatomy is different. The same implant will look different in each individual so do not think that a certain result will be achieved in your case using the same implant. You must always consider the preoperative breast shape as this will determine the result afterwards.
Tear Drop Breast Implants
Tear drop implants provide a slightly more natural look with less fullness in the upper pole. This gives a softer upper pole and smooth slope. The tear drop implants have most of the weight of the implant in the lower pole and so look slightly more fuller in the bottom half. The tear drop implants come in different heights and projections such as moderate or high profile. There is a small risk with tear drop breast implants of implant rotation, which means turning of the implants in the pocket.
Round Breast Implants
Round breast implants have more fullness in the upper pole when compared to the tear drop shape. Breast enlargement before and after round implants will often provide more cleavage or fullness in the upper pole. Round breast implants come in a variety of different profiles such as moderate plus, moderate plus Xtra, high and high Xtra profiles. Each of these will have varying degrees of width and projection.
Dual Plane Breast Augmentation
Dual plane is a term used to describe the pocket in which the breast implant is placed. Dual plane means that part of the implant is under the muscle and part is under the breast glandular tissue. The upper and inner part of the implant is usually under the muscle. The lower and outer part of the implant sits directly under the glandular tissue. This dual plane technique is usually used in patients that have very little breast tissue to provide more cover of the implant. When we talk about going under the muscle this is essentially going dual plane.
