Can you tell round from shaped breast implants??? Actually, experts can't in most cases!!!
1. At no better that a coin toss rate (50:50) the surgeons couldn't tell one from the other
2. 70% of the surgeons said they were going to do more rounds as a result
As long as you don't have big fake high profile type implants, it is almost impossible to tell rounds from shaped!
Natural Breast Augmentation
'Natural' is a very subjective term. I have found prospective patients looking at my photos complaining that they all look fake, and I have found some that complain that they are all too natural looking! However, you have submitted your aesthetic goal appearance and so it give us insight as to what it means to you.
Choosing the right implant for your anatomy is the most important way to create a natural result, along with subpectoral placement and the absence of any pathology like capsular contracture. Dr. Rand mentioned the surprising results at the Aesthetic Meeting last week, and I feel this highlights a great point: the relative size of the implant to your anatomy has more effect on the appearance of the breast augmentation result than any other factor, including breast implant shape or profile.
Unlike round implants, shaped implants have little tolerance for mismatching implant size with patient anatomy. Additionally, shaped implants need precise pocket dimensions to avoid rotation. However, I think these devices are excellent; they have been shown to have the lowest rates of all complications associated with breast augmentation. I encourage you to pursue shaped implants, but you need to realize that you cannot just pick a size like you did (375 Sientra); that's just not how it works (and that's not how it should work for round implants either!).
Best of luck!

Best implants for natural look
You will need a shaped, natural contour implant (tear drop) if you do not like upper pole fullness.
I have been very happy with the cohesive gel (gummy bear) Sientra implants for my patients.
The best implant for you depends on many factors - chest and breast measurements and skin quality as well as your goals. Your plastic surgeon will have taken these into account. If you have concerns, return a second time to review your choice.
Although a 375 cc implant will make most women your size a C cup, the cup size is not scientific. A woman may wear a B, C or D cup implant depending on the style and the cup size is larger as chest circumference gets larger. Hope this helps. Best wishes.
