What are shaped form stable breast implants? Shaped form stable breast implants are implants that are designed with a lower point of maximal projection, and they are designed with what is considered an anatomic shape. In some patients they provide a more natural appearing breast augmentation result.

This is a shaped form stable implant. They come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. This one is a little bit taller than it is wide. It has a fairly low point of maximal projection, and it's an intermediate projection implant. Are shaped form stable implants the best device for every patient? Well, no.

If you have a breast that's already full in the lower pole, and somewhat elongated, you will get a perfectly good result with a round implant in most cases. However, if you have a very small starting breast volume, A or small B, and especially if you need to have the inframammary fold lowered to achieve an ideal implant position on the chest wall, then shaped form stable implants provide a lot of advantages.
