When it comes to breast augmentation, there are many breast implants available to choose from based on shape, feel, size, material, also depending on the body type and the preference of the patient. This article will focus on round breast implants and its characteristics, so you may know if it is the right breast implant for you.
Round Breast Implants
The main thing to consider when choosing the shape of your breast implants is your own personal preference. If you’re looking for the appearance of a fuller look, round shape, then round implants may be the right breast implant for you.
As the name suggests, round breast implants are semi-spherical in shape, and it provides a firm, rounder breast shape after the surgery. This gives the upper portion of the breasts a fuller look and a more noticeable cleavage. This type of round breast implants gives patients a more active and younger look. It is a common misconception that round implants would make the breasts look fake. Thanks to technological advancements, the round implants today now looked more natural than they did before, due to the fact that liquid-acting fillers tend to settle at the bottom of the implant while in an upright position. Round implants may even look more natural than teardrop implants when the patient is lying down, as the filler becomes evenly distributed, whereas teardrop implants remain constricted to their original shape.
Since teardrop implants are asymmetrically shaped, they carry a risk of rotating within the breast pocket. This implant rotation issue can compromise the shape and symmetry of the breasts and it requires corrective surgery to fix, Not to mention the fact that teardrop implants have a significantly higher risk of rotation. One of the advantages of round breast implants is that, the semi-spherical shape implant has no particular radial orientation, so if ever the implants rotate over time, it won’t be noticeable because the implant is equal on all sides.
Another factor to consider is the shape and textured shell of teardrop implants, it normally requires a larger incision in order to place the implant into the breast pocket. Larger incisions may increase the risk of having noticeable scarring as well as a longer recovery period.
Round breast implants are also commonly the cheaper choice in the market. This is one of the reasons why women commonly opt for round implants. However, no matter what the price is, choosing the right implant from the right company is always more important.
Motiva® Round Breast Implant
Produced by Establishment labs, one of the top manufacturers of breast Implants in the world, Motiva Implants® would be a better choice if you are looking to get round implants that have been proven to be safe and were made with reliable innovative materials considered to be the latest breast implants, from a company that puts patients first.
Although round implants are the most common shape for breast implants, Motiva® Round Implant is far from common. The Motiva® Round Implant is encased in a SmoothSilk® NanoSurface shell, mitigating the risk of Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma or BIA-ALCL, that has been found in implants with a rougher (textured) outer shell.
Based on a post-market surveillance system and other extensive clinical research, the SmoothSilk® NanoSurface shell has been proven to have better postoperative outcomes, with fewer low/high-risk complications. Patients also demonstrated less the 1% of capsular contracture rates. The proprietary shell has also been proven to minimize inflammation and maximize biocompatibility, enable surgeons to make smaller incisions and significantly reduced risk of double capsules and late seromas.
Aside from the shell, Motiva® Round Implants also have other features that separate it from the competition. Encased in the implant is the Q Inside® Safety Technology (Qid®) that allows both patients and doctors to view important information about the implant in a safe and non-invasive way.
