Service NameBreast Augmentation (Teardrop / Anatomic)
Breast augmentation — also known as augmentation mammoplasty — is surgery to increase breast size. It involves placing breast implants under breast tissue or chest muscles.
For some women, breast augmentation is a way to feel more confident. For others, it's part of rebuilding the breast for various conditions.
If you're considering breast augmentation, talk to a plastic surgeon. Make sure you understand what surgery involves, including possible risks, complications and follow-up care.
Tear drop implants rely on scar tissue (capsule) to attach to the implant’s textured surface. This is what holds the implant in place. Because the teardrop shaped implants are flatter on top and more full on the bottom, malposition may occur if the implant is not held in place by scar tissue. Rotation can change the shape of the breast and sometimes it even requires another surgical procedure to correct.
