Tear drop or round?

This forum has been amazing and I have learnt so much thank you! I am now at the point where I am collecting advise and quotes. I realise best is to see surgeons in person but I guess I am moving slowly with this and my location is not close to surgeons either. I am seeking recommendations then in July and august when I am in south east aus I will be seeking surgeons for better recommendation. So far I have been recommended a teardrop implant due to "natural sag". I have lost a bit of weight and I plan to lose a further 7kg or so before surgery. I am looking for a fuller perky shape where I can create cleavage in low cut garments about a D cup as far as sizing goes (currently a deflated B cup with zero cleavage, I actually get pec definition in some lighting but zero breast shape. 165cm 62kg. 32inch chest (measured under breasts.) Had concerns reading on teardrop so trusting it was recommended correctly for me.?

    Hi there,
    Thank you for sharing your photos and stories in your search so far in your breast augmentation journey.
    In short I think you'll be an excellent candidate for a great result regardless of the choice of implants whether tear drop or round shaped. You appear to be most suitable for a dual plane approach with modest size (350g to 400g) but high profile round implants to "fill" the relatively deflated breast envelope. That should comfortably achieve your desired surgical outcome of a fuller perkier look from a deflated B cup to a good D cup result. Should you desire a "bigger" proportional outcome with implants more than 400g, I'll be inclined to recommend tear drop shaped implants which will give you a more preferential fill and lift in the lower pole of the breasts without compromising the natural looking surgical result.
    Hope that address your concerns and queries. For further in depth assistance or a Skype consult, feel free to submit an enquiry to my practice via PSF for more information.
    Best wishes

    Hi. Thank you for your posting your question.
    An assessment of the photographs provided shows that your nipples and most of your breast tissue lie above the breast crease, so you will not require a lift. In my opinion, you will get a good result from breast augmentation alone with either a round OR anatomical silicone implant, placed in a sub-muscular dual plane pocket. An important factor to note is that breast shape and size can change with weight loss; therefore, depending on the amount of weight loss you plan to and eventually achieve, your breasts shape and size may also change. I would therefore advise that you have an assessment after you have reached and maintained the weight you want to be at.
    All the very best. Feel free to contact my friendly staff members if you have any other questions regarding breast enhancement.
    Warm regards,
    Dr Ray Goh
