It is widely known that breast implants come in different sizes, but they also come in different shapes, too. When considering a breast enhancement procedure, it’s important to review the shapes and their effects to discover which is the best fit for your desired look. The most common shape of implants is round.


  • Soft & smooth implant shell
  • Shell feels natural compared to textured shell
  • Round appears more natural compared to shaped/contoured implants
  • Implants maintain position whether laying down or standing


Round breast implants are ideal for patients who want to add fullness to the upper breast area. These implants create a body contour in which the breasts protrude horizontally from the chest.

Smooth round implants are a popular choice among Eastlake Cosmetic Surgery Center patients. They are flat and circular in shape and are often placed in a pocket beneath the breast muscle tissue. If a round implant happens to rotate in the months or years after a procedure, it’s likely that the breast will still maintain its shape.

Patients can choose from a variety of implant options, including saline, silicone and cohesive gel implants.

Breast augmentation procedures usually require patients to undergo general anesthesia in an outpatient surgical center. A surgeon then makes an incision below the breast or nipple. The implants are inserted either behind the breast tissue or underneath the muscles of the chest wall. Recovery usually takes between 24 and 48 hours.


If you are considering breast augmentation, round breast implants are definitely an option.There are various types of breast implants to choose from, so it is important to consult an informed and experienced surgeon when making this decision.
