What is tear-drop breast implant surgery?

A beautiful shape of the breast is shaped like a water drop where its volume gradually expands from top to bottom.
The surgery enlarges the breasts with the implants shaped like a tear drop.

Tear drop implants

The implants are not the general round-shaped ones but have an ergonomic design with a tear drop shape and forms a beautiful breast shape with a natural breast border line when lying down and nipples slightly pointing upwards .
It minimizes the empty space in the breast, having less possibility for changes in the location of the implants with almost no side effects like wrinkles (rippling).

Surgery method

1Surgery method depending on incision
Classification Armpit incision Nipple incision Under breast incision
Image Armpit incision Nipple incision Under breast incision
Method Incise 2 – 4cm of the armpit folds Incise along the lower part of the nipples Incise the folds where the breasts naturally fold above the abdomen by 3 – 4cm
Advantages Less scars after surgery and a natural look

Preserves senses with no damage around the nipples

Quick surgery and recovery

Easy to secure the space for inserting the implants

Less pain and relatively free arm movement

Most simple surgery and short surgery time
Disadvantages Slight discomfort in arm movement right after the surgery Impossible to perform on small nipples Visible scars when lying down

It is good to receive the surgery from medical specialists with a lot of clinical experience and familiar with endoscopic surgery because the protruded part should be facing forward while inserting the tear drop implants via armpit incision.

VIEW clinic’s medical staff can perform the tear drop breast surgery through armpit incision with accurate understanding of implants and extensive know-how in surgeries. They can perform a precise surgery by securing a wide field of vision through the endoscope.

2Surgery method depending on the prosthesis insertion point

The surgery method depending on the prosthetic position includes prosthetic insertion above the pectoralis major muscle, beneath the mammary gland, and dual plane above and beneath the muscle.

Classification Insertion below the muscle Dual plane
(dual-layered breast augmentation)
Insertion below the mammary gland
Image Armpit incision Nipple incision Under breast incision
Method Prosthetic insertion beneath the chest muscle called the pectoralis major muscle Place 2/3 of the prosthetic beneath the chest muscle and 1/3 above the chest muscle Insert the prosthetic right beneath the chest tissues above the pectoralis major muscle
Advantages The most preferred method for a natural feel and a tear drop shape Prevents breasts with double lines where dual-layered lines form Simple surgery with less pain without muscle expansion
Disadvantages Pain due to the expansion of the breast tissues and muscles and relatively long recovery period A difficult surgery that may cause side effects if performed by an inexperienced medical specialist Not performed much due to the possibility of capsular contracture
