Butt implants - round or oval
Thanks for submitting your pictures and your goal pictures. The natural attractive butts are oval and not round. They are longer vertically than horizontally. The butts start from the posterior ilac crest bone where the glutts muscles attache, down to the crease. That is why the oval shape was recommended to you. If you want a fake unnatural butts, you can get the round implants. You mentioned the 300 cc size implants, these are not implants that will give you satisfactory results based on to your goal pictures. The most common size implants in my surgery center are 565cc round oval implants ( check my before and after pictures ). You can not have this size with the intra muscular or sub muscular techniques. Only the sub fascial plane can accomodate big size implants. Consult with board certified plastic surgeons who do lots of butt implants surgery and are familiar and experienced with the sub fascial technique. Check their before and after pictures to make sure that you like the results.
Best of luck,

Round vs Shaped Buttocks Implants
The decision to go with round vs. shaped implants has to do with the measurements of your body as well as the technique used. Round implants tend to give a lot of projection in the upper portion of the buttocks, where you said you doing want it. The shaped implants are almond shaped and tend to give a bit more fullness lower and to the outside, in the natural shape of the gluteal muscle. Based on the technique used there are limits to the size and shape that can be implanted safely. There are 3 basic ways to place the implant: 1. under the skin or muscle fascia, 2. into the gluteal muscle and 3. under the gluteal muscle. I prefer the intramuscular (in the muscle) technique, as it provides good coverage of the implant. Best wishes.
