Generally, teardrop silicone breast implants will give the most natural result. Moderate projection implants give a more natural result versus high projection in the right patient. However, in a patient with slight drooping a higher projection implant will give lifting and correction of drooping. Teardrop implants also give the most natural result if a large size is desired. Whereas, large round implants give increasingly un-natural results. Also, in very small, slim patients round implants give a very artificial result, so teardrop implants are mostly preferred.

The choice of implant is always a harmony of the patients’ breast, skin, implant dimensions and shape. What is right for one patient will not necessarily be right for another. Each implant must be matched to each individual patient.
