I’m Larry Schlesinger and I’m a board-certified plastic surgeon from Honolulu, Hawaii. I’m often asked why we use round implants as opposed to the anatomic or tear-drop implants.
The pectoralis muscle pushes on the top of the implant, leaving the bottom to bulge where the pectoralis muscle is not in place and therefore, I see no reason for using tear-drop implants. The round implants do everything that the tear-drops do with a great deal more safety.
Unfortunately, the tear-drop implants rotate. And although they’re textured, they rotate more than they should, number one. Number two, textured implants are really on the outs right now because of the potential dangers associated with them.
