Will there be complications swapping a teardrop shaped implant for round? Will I achieve more cleavage or fullness. (photos)

You have an excellent outcome after surgery; it looks like everything went very well! That being said, I see a clear difference between your post operative pictures and your posted "desired" look. It does seem that the shape shown in the "desired" picture correlates more with a round implant. Round implants provide more upper pole fullness than tear drop shaped implants. Although more upper pole fullness is often desired, it is considered the less natural appearing implant. I assume the tear drop shaped implants were chosen for you to create a more natural appearing breast. It would probably be best to speak with your plastic surgeon clearly about your desires. A round implant that is larger with a wider base diameter will likely address the concerns noted here. Good luck!
