What are anatomical implants?
Anatomical implants are used within breast augmentation surgery. Also commonly known as a shaped implant, it is a choice of breast implant available when you’re looking to improve the appearance of your breasts. In this vlog, we’ll discuss in further detail what are anatomical implants, the advantages of choosing this type of breast implant and how they can be beneficial to you.
Why would I choose to have an anatomical implant?
The purpose of an anatomical implant is to provide less fullness in the upper pole of the breast with maximum fullness appearing in the lower pole. The other benefit why patients may choose to have anatomical implants is that they’re adaptable. They have the ability to be catered to the patient’s anatomical characteristics based on the height, width and projection of the implant.
How are the implants adaptable?
You may be wondering what are anatomical implants’ capabilities in order to be adaptable. It’s possible to increase the projection of the implants by adding extra volume in the lower pole. We can also reduce the height and width of the implant to provide you with a different shape or size to suit your needs.
This can be a common choice for patients due to the flexible nature of anatomical breasts, providing a wider choice in how they wish for their breasts to look. What the best option is for you can be discussed during your consultation. Here, you’ll also be able to discuss the pros and cons of using anatomical breast implants and if there are any risks involved.
