Traveling to have a single breast teardrop implant abroad is becoming increasingly popular because breast implants abroad are more affordable. But affordability isn't the only appeal to having a single breast teardrop implant abroad; other benefits include:

Luxury holiday coupled with breast implant treatment  

Most patients travel abroad to have a breast implant; their primary goal is treatment. But they understand it is an opportunity to enjoy a luxury holiday and explore new experiences before or after their breast implant surgery.

Highly experience surgeons

The surgeons are highly experienced with years of practice. Their clinics are accredited by renowned institutions like Joint Commission International JCI or International Organization for Standardization ISO.

The breast implant is cheap abroad. 

The affordability of breast implant surgery abroad doesn't affect the quality of treatment. The surgeons have a similar experience as your native country's doctors, if not more. Cost is cheaper because the living expense in these countries is lower if you compare it to US or UK.

Who isn't a good candidate for the surgery?

If you are bothered that one of your breasts is too small or asymmetrical, if you are physically healthy, also if you aren't pregnant or breastfeeding, you are probably the right candidate for a single breast teardrop implants procedure.

What you should avoid before the surgery? 

Breast implant operations involve almost the same preparations, regardless of the type or number of implants. These are:

  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid taking blood thinners such as aspirin and herbal supplements
  • Avoid taking certain anti-inflammatory medicines
  • Inform your doctor about the medications you already use 

How is the surgery performed?

Single breast teardrop implant surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes between 30 and 60 minutes. After anesthesia, the surgeon cuts the skin at the base of the areola or under the chest, removes a pocket under the chest, and usually cuts the pectoralis muscle and places the implant. They then suture the cuts before dressing the breast.

Single Breast Teardrop Implant Recovery Timeline

The single breast teardrop implant procedure recovery period lasts a few weeks after the surgery. Patients generally need to take a week or two off work.

It may be recommended to wear a special bra 24 hours a day for up to three months following the surgery. Patients also need to avoid strenuous exercise for at least a month and keep their breast scar out of direct sunlight for about a year.

Single Breast Teardrop Implant Side Effects

Single breast teardrop implants procedure may also have some risks and complications as in other surgical procedures, some of the most common risks are:

  • Rupture
  • Collapse

  • Implant associated hematoma
  • Infection
  • Breast implant failure

Typical side effects of single breast teardrop implants surgery include:

  • Temporary pain
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • A feeling of discomfort and tightness in the breast

Single Breast Teardrop Implant Success Rate

Breast augmentation surgery generally pleases women. Whatever the purpose, women with the desired breast shape and size feel better and are satisfied with the operation. Single breast teardrop implant surgeries have the same effect if performed by an experienced and skilled surgeon.

The success rate of breast augmentation surgery is around 95% based on the feedback from the patients.

If you need to change your healthy breast to achieve symmetry or balance surgically, it is not always easy to match an implant to the remaining natural breast. However, single-breast teardrop implants are one of the most suitable choices to provide a balance between two breasts.

After the surgery, patients feel satisfied to have the same shaped and sized breasts and this creates comfort and self-esteem.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is Single Breast Teardrop Implants?

The single breast teardrop implant procedure is effective for patients whose single breast has been surgically removed for prevention or the result of cancer, as well as for women with asymmetry between their breasts which means one breast is smaller than the other.

Is Single Breast Teardrop Implants Painful?

Since you will be under anesthesia during the surgery, you will not feel any pain or discomfort, and if you have pain during the recovery period, you can use medication to relieve it.

Are Single Breast Teardrop Implants Safe?

In the past, breast implants carried a greater risk of rupture and associated risks and complications. For example, when the breast implants rupture, gel material could leak into the surrounding tissue. After years of development, breast implants are considered safe.

To make sure, surgeons apply regular screenings to the implants for them to remain in the right place and haven’t ruptured.
