Breast implants come in two shapes: round and anatomic, or tear-drop,
shape. Round implants generally assume a pretty anatomical shape when a
patient's in an upright position, but the anatomic breast implants will
always be fuller at the bottom than the top, which is a natural breast
shape.

Implants come with two textures. Smooth implants are actually the most
common implants in the United States, and these are free to move about
within the scar tissue pocket that develops around the implant. Textured
implants have a more rough surface and they adhere to the tissues. They're
generally used for anatomic-shaped implants to keep them from rotating.
There are lower rates of capsular contracture, and there is less settling
of the breast down and out to the side over time. But some patients require
a drain after surgery, and textured implants may show more rippling.
