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.

Teardrop Breast Implants

While all breast implants add volume to the breast, some implants provide a more natural look. We offer teardrop breast implants for patients who want a more anatomical shape, which gives the natural-looking sloping contours that many women desire.

What Are Teardrop Breast Implants?

Often known as “gummy bear breast implants,” teardrop-shaped breast implants feature a shape designed to mimic the appearance of a natural breast. Unlike round implants, this particular implant has a more anatomical shape, with a thinner upper area that gently slopes down into a more round, full base.

Silicone breast implants enhance naturally small breasts or restore volume lost with pregnancy, nursing, or weight changes. Breast implants are available in various shapes, projections, and sizes, including round and teardrop shapes. While round breast implants tend to add volume in the superior (upper) pole of the breast, teardrop breast implants offer more of a natural slope to the upper breast. Depending on your needs and goals, shaped implants can provide more control of the volume in the upper portion of the breast. 

Teardrop implants are silicone, which promotes a very natural look and feel. Teardrop breast implants are often called “gummy bear breast implants” because they contain highly-cohesive silicone that retains its anatomical shape.

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.

Teardrop vs. Round Breast Implants – Pros and Cons of each

Teardrop-shaped breast implants are also commonly known as anatomic implants because 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 bottom of the breast, enhancing the projection of the nipple while better defining the curve below the nipple. The advantages of anatomically shaped implants are mainly seen when the patient has very little native breast tissue.

That said, round implants remain more popular because they offer a few advantages, including: 

  • They can provide more cleavage and lift.
  • They deliver a fuller look at the top of the breast.
  • They are available as silicone gel or saline (saltwater) breast implants.
  • Breasts retain a natural-looking appearance in the unlikely event of implant rotation.

At the same time, teardrop or gummy bear breast implants also offer their compelling advantages, including: 

  • They provide more natural-looking results.
  • They mimic the fullness and contours of a natural breast.
  • They offer an ideal option to restore lost volume caused by breastfeeding or weight loss.
  • They provide an excellent choice for petite patients with less breast tissue who desire a more natural surgical result.

The shell of an anatomical-shaped implant is textured to help prevent the shifting or rotating of teardrop-shaped implants, which allows the surrounding natural tissue to grow against it, somewhat like Velcro. Gummy bear breast implants are usually a bit more expensive than round-shaped implants. Our team will discuss all the advantages and disadvantages of every available breast augmentation option, so you can make an informed, confident decision that will help you achieve your individual goals.

Teardrop Breast Implant Shapes

Teardrop implants come in different projections, volumes, and heights. The implant can be matched to the shape and size of each patient’s chest. These implants give the surgeon more control over the final contour and appearance of the breast. In many cases, teardrop implants allow our patients to have a “designer breast” with a specific desired look and volume. 

 

Because of the additional shaped control with teardrop-shaped, gummy bear breast implants, more patients choose them for breast augmentation.
