A common question that patients tend to ask when they’re going through breast augmentation relates to them having different breast shapes, and whether because of this whether they should have the same or different shaped implants. When you ask yourself this question, it’s extremely important that the pros and cons are ran through for this during your consultation.
It’s generally advised that having the same implants are more beneficial. In this vlog, there are 2 case studies provided of 2 patients who have different breast shapes. Despite them having different breast shapes, the same shaped implants have been used for both patients.
There are differences that can still occur with having the same implants but the differences are much less compared to the ones that would be visible post-operatively. According to literature, there’s a 30% chance of breast revision still being required 10 years after the surgery procedure has taken place. Considering this, it would be ideal to have the same implants with different breast shapes as this can be easier for the breast revision procedure. This is something that you should think about before deciding whether to have the same or different implants.
