Round or teardrop?
it seems to me that your surgeon has given you two very reasonable options.
it seems to me that you want the effect of the anatomical implants but without the risk of rotation and luckily for you there is a solution. The round GFX implants from NAGOR are under filled and very very soft so when in situ they feel great, very natural and due to gravity they fill the bottom part giving you an effect similar to the anatomical implsnts

Round vs anatomic implants
Natural look wanted. Round or anatomical?
Hopefully you are prepared to receive a variety of different answers; both round and "anatomical" shaped breast implants may accomplish your goals. In my practice, I have the same concerns that you communicated; I utilize smooth round silicone gel breast implants for most patients with your body type.
Ultimately, careful communication of your goals (in my practice I prefer the use of goal pictures, direct examination/communication in front of a full-length mirror, in bra sizers, and computer imaging) as well as careful measurements (dimensional planning) will be critical.
Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering breast augmentation surgery ( regarding breast implant size/profile selection) is:
1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you are looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.
2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals.
In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. For example, I have found that the use of words such as “very natural” or "full B, small C cup" means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful.
Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on him who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate. Again, the use of computer imaging has been very helpful during the communication process, in our practice.
3. Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly, allow your plastic surgeon to use his/her years of experience/judgment to choose the breast implant size/profile that will best meet your goals. Again, in my practice, this decision is usually made during surgery, after the use of temporary intraoperative sizers.
I hope this (and the attached link, dedicated to breast augmentation surgery for petite patients) helps. Best wishes for an outcome that you will be very pleased with.
Breast augmentation choices
In your case with very little subcutaneous fat, you MUST have the implants placed in a dual plane. I don't think there would be any debate about this.
More contentious will be the decision between rounds and anatomics. Good studies have shown that when placed in a dual plane, one cannot discern round from anatomics by looking at results. An "MM" is moderate height and moderate projection, so it is almost round anyway! I would opt for rounds in you as there is nothing to be gained from using anatomics in you (in my opinion) and I think if your chest measurements are used as a basis for implant selection, you will have a lovely result. Good luck.
