Hidalgo, David A. M.D.; Weinstein, Andrew L. M.D., M.S.
Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery; 139(3):587, March 2017 

In this study of 75 patients undergoing breast augmentation, a round implant was placed in one breast and a size-matched anatomic implant in the other. Photographs were taken, following which the anatomic implant was replaced with a round one. Photographs were shown to plastic surgeons and lay observers, and neither group showed a preference for the appearance of anatomic implants. Plastic surgeons were only able to correctly identify the implant shape in 26.5% of cases.
