How should I decide the shape of implant?

Stuart A. Linder, MD
Plastic Surgery
The shape of the implants come in anatomical and round shapes. In my practice, I personally do not use anatomical or shaped implants. Rotational deformities occur over time and even five degrees of rotation with an anatomical or shaped implant leads to an obvious external deformity that is impossible to correct without surgery. In fact, surgical correction usually requires using round saline or silicone implants. Remember if a round implant rotates, it is not significant in terms of rotational deformity. Moderate-plus saline and silicone implants behind the muscle yield a very natural shape and there is no worry of rotational deformities.
