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).
