Teardrop vs Round Breast Implants

The shape of the breasts is an important element in terms of women’s appearance. Saggy, or disproportionate breasts may lower a woman’s confidence. However, thanks to breast implants, also known as breast augmentation or breast enlargement surgeries, this issue can be fixed and women can have fuller, more proportional, and natural-looking breasts within really short-term and easy procedures. These surgeries are carried out by professional and experienced surgeons and the results are most satisfactory. 

What Are The Main Differences Between Teardrop and Round Implants?

When we come to the shape and size of the implants, we see two types of implant shapes which are teardrop implants and round implants. Teardrop implants, as the name suggests, look like tears from our eyes. These implants are filled with a thicker silicone gel that holds their shape. That is why teardrop implants can also be called “form-stable” implants. It looks relatively more natural than the round ones since the actual appearance of the breasts looks more like them. However, round implants, on the other hand, generally have a smooth shell filled with saline or fluid silicone gel that flows freely. 

The difference between these two is most obvious when the patient stands up or lies down. When they lie flat on their back, the fluid in a round implant will settle throughout the shell, creating a round look. When they stand back up, the fluid will rush to the bottom, creating a natural-looking teardrop shape, whereas in teardrop implants, the shape will not change. Because the gel is form-stable, the shape is fixed.

Which Shape is Better for Me?

The shape of the implants to be used on your body depends on your body type and is recommended to be chosen by consulting a surgeon. However, in general, teardrop implants may be the best for women with petite builds who do not have much breast tissue to work with. They allow for a more natural-looking shape and level of projection without necessarily increasing the amount of volume. Therefore, they allow slimmer women to have more natural-looking breasts after the operation.

On the other hand, round implants are round. Thus, they are more likely to provide more lift and cleavage than teardrop implants for this reason. So, if the patient wants to achieve this kind of look, round implants can be chosen, and the results can still be natural-looking with the work of an experienced surgeon, of course. 

What are the Costs of These Two Implant Types?


Teardrop-shaped implants generally cost more than round ones. However, the average cost of breast enlargement surgeries in the UK and European countries is around 8000. However, this figure includes only the treatment and implant costs.  When consultation and aftercare costs are included, these prices increase by around 1000. Also, the cost of breast enlargement with the same quality and service in Turkey is almost half of the costs mentioned above. The reason for getting breast implants at low costs in Turkey is the differences in exchange rates of the countries.
