Deciding on the upper body shape and breast implant

When I counsel for the breast surgery, the very first thing I consider is the upper body shape.

The upper body is the background of the breast, therefore, it is important to see what type of upper body shape a person has. 

In some aspect, it is like considering with material of paper you would like to draw a painting on. 
In the past, there wasn’t many choices in selecting the implants. We only looked at or considered the cc size and selected the volume.

Now, we have many types of implants that we can select from. It is not only the volume size but also the width, length, and depth of the implant that we can choose according to the body shape and size of each patient. Therefore, breast surgery counseling has become more precise and time consuming.


There are many methods on how we can analyze the body shape or form. There is one method that I have come up with. I call this a Triangle scheme.

The distance from the midpoint of the two clavicles to the nipples, and the distance between the nipples are measured. When all the points are connected, this becomes a triangle. We look at the shape of the triangle to analyze the body form or shape, and then decide on the type of the implant. 

Many people have the normal triangle shape. The figure is about 50%. This is the most natural and closest to perfect ratio shape. We recommend round base water drop implant in such case. Round base means that the width and the length of the implant are equal.

The isosceles triangle shape is called the Tall Type. We choose tall base water-drop implant for such case. Tall type means that the length of the implant is longer than the width.  

It the triangle shape is wide, we choose a wide back water-drop implant.

As in the picture above, the Tall Height implant is used for those who have tall triangle upper body shape. The Short Height implant is used for those with wide triangle upper body shape.

Such drawing figure (i.e. triangle) helps to decide the implant necessary for the patients quickly.

Of course, this is not the only procedure in making the final selection of the implants. A person’s body is more complicated than one thinks it is. Some people have bird chest, sharp chest, drooping breast, widely separated breast, lifted breast, funnel chest, cancer treated breast, etc.

The implant used must be uniquely fit for such situations and also needs to be in align with what the patient wants, therefore, the measurement cannot be the only decision making factor.

The implant selection depends on: 

Upper body measurement + Requests from the patients +
Surgical / Technological factors

The 3 factors must be considered simultaneously in order to make decision on what implant to use.


Today, we looked at why upper body analysis is important in selecting the breast implant.

Thank you for reading. Have a nice day.
