A breast implant is a medical prosthesis used to augment, reconstruct, or create the physical form of breasts.
The prosthesis can be inserted (incision) in the axilla (armpit) or by the areolar (lower part of the areola).
The choice depends on your body type (size of areolas, breasts and position of your choice).
The position of the prosthesis (in front or behind the muscle) is independent of the first way. (A axillary prosthesis may be ahead or behind the muscle as well as a areolar prosthesis)..
Let your surgeon guide you.
There are 2 basic shapes of breast implant to choose from: round or anatomical.
Round: Round implants are the most common implants as they generally give women the most lift, fullness and cleavage.
Anatomical: Unlike a round implant, a “shaped” implant by design has a top and a bottom (it is tear-drop shaped) which may appear more natural in some women.
