A common misconception about breast implants is that they always appear obviously artificial. In fact, breast implants can be subtle and natural-looking or round and high profile, depending on your goal appearance.* But choosing the best breast implant for you requires an understanding of not only your cosmetic goals, but also how your natural anatomy can affect your final breast implant results.*
Banana Body Type
The ‘banana’ figure is known for its petite and slender contours. While banana figures are hailed for their sleek look, they can be wanting in the curves department. These slimmer figures typically benefit the most from implants with a narrow base so as not to overpower their similarly narrow chests*. Some women with banana-shaped figures achieve excellent results with high profile implants, because the significant projection helps compensate for the small implant base.*
Pear Body Type
Pear-shaped figures are characterized by their narrow torsos and voluptuous hips. Women with pear figures are in an a good position to achieve the classic hourglass look with breast implants.* By opting for a mid-profile implant, pear figures can balance out their proportions with a slightly wider implant base and moderate projection.
Apple Body Type
Last but not least, the apple-shaped figure typically has a wider torso coupled with less pronounced contours below the waist. Because women with apple-shaped figures may feel as if their proportions make them appear top-heavy, larger implants with a wide base can suit these figures for better balance.* By opting for low-profile implants, apple figures can accentuate their curves without appearing artificial or obviously enhanced.*
