Tear Shaped Breast Implants

DENVER, AURORA, BOULDER, CHERRY CREEK AND LONE TREE, COLORADO

Actual Patient

The female breast consists of milk glands, milk ducts, nerves, and blood vessels surrounded by fatty tissue. The glandular tissue is firm and gives the breast its shape. The fatty tissue is soft.

Silicone breast implants

Silicone breast implants are used to make the breasts larger or to replace volume lost with pregnancy, nursing or body weight changes. Silicone breast implants are available in a wide variety of shapes, projections and sizes. While all breast implants add volume to the breast round breast implants tend to add volume in the superior (upper) pole of the breast. Teardrop shaped implants tend to offer more of a natural slope to the upper breast. Depending on your needs, shaped implants can offer more or less volume in the upper portion of the breast. The teardrop implant is often referred to as a “gummy bear” implant because the implant containing highly-cohesive silicone retains its shape.

Anatomically Shaped Breast Implants

Teardrop shaped breast implants are also referred to as anatomically shaped as they allow for a more gradual increase in fullness from the upper pole of the breast to the base of the breast. The teardrop shape also fills the base of the breast enhancing projection of the nipple while better defining the curve below the nipple. The advantages of the anatomically shaped implant is especially seen when the patient has very little native breast tissue.

Teardrop implants not only come in different sizes and projections but they also come in different heights. The implant can be matched to the size and shape of the patient’s chest. This gives the surgeon more control over not only volume but also the shape of the breast itself. In many cases, this presents our patients with the opportunity to have a “designer breast” with the specific look and volume desired. Because of the additional control in the breast shaped offered by teardrop implants approximately 85% of our patients will choose an anatomically shaped implant for their breast augmentation.
