Implant for Breast

Here is information about implant for breast

Round Implant

As the most common breast implant used in breast augmentation, the bottom is round and the middle is curved. The shape is natural whether the person is standing or lying down and is used to increase overall volume. It is especially useful for older people who have no upper breasts so that the upper chest looks voluminous.

Teardrop Implant

As the most breast similar shaped breast implant, the tear drop implant looks more anatomical and the bottom part is voluminous. Also, when using these breast implants for breast augmentation, the nipples are slightly raised for the ideal breast shape. It is especially useful for people who have small, flat, and droopy breasts.

Smooth Type

This breast implant is most commonly used and the surface is soft and smooth. It is suitable for people with thin skin and less breast tissue. The breast implant is able to move around the breast freely after the surgery and does not stick with surrounding tissue so that the shape is natural. To prevent hardening after breast enlargement surgery, massaging the breast implant is recommended for more satisfying results.

Textured Type

This breast implant has a rough and uneven surface, allowing the tissue to grow between the curves and be fixed in place. This is one of the reasons that the rate of changes in shape and hardening after the breast enhancement surgery is low. It is common for correcting droopy breasts that have a moderate amount of breast tissue and has the advantage of not requiring massage after the surgery.

Textured Teardrop Type

The tear drop shaped breast implant has properties similar to the textured type, and allows the breasts and nipples to be slightly raised to accentuate the breast shape and line. Teardrop shaped breast implants may change the shape of the breasts after a “boob job” before it settles so only texture is used.


Breast implants at WONJIN have customized profiling depending on what the patient wants.

Profiling states that the form of the implant is same but the degree of projection and shape is different.

It is important to choose the right incision method and type of breast implant, but the most important is to choose what fits the body contour the best.

A 250cc breast implant can be narrow and tall, or low and wide. WONJIN, considers the different width and size, provides customized breast augmentation surgery for each patient for satisfactory results.

The breast implant is high and has a small diameter. This is used if the width of the chest is too narrow, protruding breasts or full and voluminous breasts are desired.

2. Moderate Plus Profile (between high and moderate)

The breast implant is between high and moderate.

It has a moderate height and diameter, and has an excellent texture which is used most often in Korea.

3. Moderate Profile (moderate and average diameter)

The breast implant has a moderate height and diameter, and cohesive gel was used most often after it was approved, but the width of the implant is too wide for Asians so the use of this breast implant has been decreasing recently.

The breast implant is low and has a wide diameter, and it is used for people with a wide chest, usually not for Asians who have narrow chests.
