WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM BREAST REVISION?
Tear drop or anatomic or shaped implants are implants that have the natural shape of a breast. It is sometimes referred to as a tear drop as its shape resembles a tear drop with more volume at the lower pole with a tapered top. Prior to shaped implants being available all implants were round. A rounded implant tends to deliver more volume higher on the chest and a shaped implant has more of a transition zone as it tapers down to the patient’s bare chest.
