Round or Teardrop - Dual or Under?

Hi everyone, I am looking to have BA early this year. I am wanting some opinions on what would suit my body shape in regards to placement and shape, I'm approx. 165cms in height and approx. 56kgs weight with slightly broad shoulders. I enjoy my exercise & cardio and also hope to have my first child later next year (I'm nearly 32 years old) Any feedback and information is greatly appreciated. Please see my 'before' BA photos I have taken. Thank you.

    Hi there,
    Congratulations on your decision in your upcoming breast augmentation sometime this year!
    Judging from the photos you supplied and your desired surgical outcome for your particular body shape and active lifestyle, I personally favour tear drop/anatomical shaped implants with a dual plane pocket placement in achieving a natural looking proportional results in your scenario. 
    In addition to the aesthetic reasons mentioned above, the firmer "cohesive" consistency in tear drop silicone implants allows better shape retention especially when it comes to your potential pregnancy plan and the dual plane pocket technique have less interference with the breast tissue plane dissection in limiting interference with your breast feeding ability. 
    Hope that helps.
    Best wishes

    Breast implant selection is a complicated process and requires a detailed consultation that includes a discussion of your goals, a detailed examination, and a lengthy discussion. Many factors determine which implant style and shape is best for you including your individual measurements, level of activity, the amount of existing breast tissue you have and ultimately the look you are hoping to achieve with your augmentation.  In my practice, teardrop implants are the most popular implant shape for patients seeking a natural look. In your case given you are quite slim,  I would likely recommend dual plane pocket, sub-pectoral placement.  Another important consideration is there is no way of knowing how your breasts will respond to pregnancy and breast feeding and if your breasts sag after pregnancy then it's possible you will require revision surgery if you are unhappy with the appearance.  If you are considering starting a family very soon then you may wish to delay breast surgery.

    Dear Ari-gold, Upon review of your images, it appears you would be a great candidate for a breast augmentation using anatomical (teardrop) implants in a dual plane, submuscular pocket to achieve a natural in-proportional result. The anatomical implant range I use in my practice vary in height, width and projection, allowing for a very personalised implant selection in order to achieve your desired "look". For any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact my clinic directly and any of my staff members will be happy to answer any of your queries. Kind Regards, Dr Tavakoli
