Teardrop Implants

Miami, Florida (March 6, 2013) – For some female patients seeking breast implants, bigger alone isn’t necessarily better. For women seeking larger size, along with a more natural appearance from breast enhancement, the latest in FDA-approved, “teardrop” implants deliver a balance of both.

The contoured breast implant, also called the shaped, anatomic, cohesive gel or “gummy bear” implant, represents the latest in breast augmentation, said Sean Simon, M.D., a double-board certified Miami plastic and cosmetic surgeon. This next-generation silicone implant, shaped in a “teardrop” style, gives the woman a less-rounded and more sloped shape than that found with a traditional implant, Dr. Simon said. Though suitable for all breast enhancement candidates, they’re ideal for women with smaller, natural breasts.

“This implant offers yet another choice beyond traditional breast implants or fat transfer breast augmentation for the appropriate patient seeking breast enhancement,” he said. “Working with the right surgeon trained with this new style of implant, each patient can select the best size, contour and fullness for her unique body type

” Sizes vary, and can deliver differences in bust projection, height, fullness and resulting appearance. Available in Europe and South America for many years, these Brazilian-made implants recently received FDA approval. As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, patients are advised to closely review all options and potential benefits or risks with their plastic surgeon.
