Anatomic or Round Implants?

My surgeon recommends Natrelle 410 implants as they look more natural than round ones. Do you agree with his opinion?
I agree with the other Doctors
Depending on how the implants are placed the round implants can look very natural and are the most commenly used in the United States. They are used most commonly for a reason, and that is most patients prefer them. However in a very thin patient, with little breast tissue a shaped ("anatomical") implant can look very nice. I was unaware that there was a price difference for those implants over the round ones. I pay the same for both, but I may have a special relationship with the implants because I do over 350 a year. As always, consult with 2 or 3 surgeons and pick the one you feel most comfortable with.

If you ask the sales reps which implants are the most popular they are the round smooth implants--say no more.
