Choosing the right size with breast augmentation

+1

In my practice, I ask the patient to bring in photos of what she wants to achieve after surgery and when I am in the operating room, I use temporary sizers to see what size implant will give the patient the  breast size they are looking for. I normally don't use teardrop implants because I have seen teardrop implants shift and therefore completely change the shape of the patients' breasts.  If the patient wants a "natural look", I try to achieve that with the pocket dissection instead of using teardrop implants.
