Round or Teardrop implants?
In general, we could say that round breast implants are fluid silicone or saline-filled implants that have a round shape (like the name implies) with a smooth shell. They are completely symmetrical and are the most used kind of implants to date.
On the other hand, teardrop shaped implants (also called TDI or anatomical implants) mimic the breast’s natural shape. They are smaller at the top and fuller at the bottom, so they are completely asymmetrical.
These implants are made of a thicker silicone gel or high cohesion gel that holds its shape, with the benefit of feeling soft to the touch. They are also known as gummy bear implants!
Are Teardrop Implants Really More Natural Looking?
These implants do give you a more natural look in experienced hands. It also depends on your body conditions like weight, frame, breast tissue, and sagging.
Also, you should know that based on the material they are made, there are some differences.
The round breast implants are filled with a fluid gel or solution that flows freely and shifts its distribution into the implant depending on gravity and the position you are in.
So, when you are in the upright position, the fluid accumulates in the bottom, and when you lie down, the fluid distributes symmetrically, similar to a real breast.
On the other hand, since the TDI retains its form, they give a natural look when you are in an upright position. However, when you lie down, the shape remains the same. Maybe you could have a minimal change in the contour. So it all comes down to your preferences.
