Single breast implant surgery is a procedure applied in cases where developmental disorders or shape and size asymmetries are observed in a single breast or mastectomy surgery performed in a single breast.

Although the procedure is not different from a normal (two breasts) implant surgery, it has consequences such as shortening surgery and recovery times.

The shape of a breast implant can be round or teardrop-shaped (anatomical). Both have some advantages and disadvantages. The teardrop implants are more often used in the case of breast reconstruction and certain patients with a particular morphology. Therefore, teardrop breast implants are more preferred in single breast implant surgeries.

How Does It Work?

Teardrop implants are more common among patients who want a large volume but a natural shape as well as for patients with severe atrophy (flat chest). Unlike round implants, teardrop breast implants have a much more natural shape.

The teardrop implants will be tailor-made by the plastic surgeon according to the wishes of the patient and according to three criteria defined: protrusion, width, and height.

In this surgery, general anesthesia is used, so the patient must stay overnight in the medical center. The next day, you can go home and rest for the next 48 hours to avoid complications. After the operation, it is essential to follow the surgeon's recommendations to have a comfortable and quick postoperative with which the healing will heal properly.

What Does Single Breast Teardrop Implants Treatment Involve?

1.    Consultation for Single Breast Teardrop Implants

The first step to starting your single breast teardrop implant process will be online consultation. During this consultation, our specialist will ask you some questions to understand your complaints and expectations.

It will also be useful to learn your complete medical history to rule out a possible contraindication. The main target of this stage is to make sure whether you are a suitable candidate for single breast teardrop implants or not.

2.    Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

After it is decided that you are the right candidate for the single breast teardrop implant procedure, we will share the results of the clinics and surgeons by filtering them according to the criteria we receive from you. After you have made your selection, we proceed to the next stage, which includes date determination and detailed adjustments.

3.    Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your single breast teardrop implant surgeon. In this consultation, the surgeon will examine the breasts to assess their size and shape, as well as your general state of health and the elasticity and firmness of the skin of your breast which will be operated on.

In addition to this, it is important to inform your surgeon about the number of pregnancies that you have had or if you are intended to have children in the future and breastfeed them. In this same consultation, the surgeon will explain to you the different techniques that exist for breast implant surgery.

They will also choose the most suitable teardrop breast implant size for you according to the shape of your body and your other breast.

4.    Medical Examinations

Before the single breast teardrop implant process begins, your surgeon will conduct some necessary medical tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the procedure. In some cases, a mammographic study will be requested, especially when the patient is over 40 years old, to rule out suspicious lumps or any other abnormality.

Every patient is required to undergo medical tests to ensure that nothing will hinder the success of the surgery and if any risks are observed at this stage, surgeons try to eliminate them first.

5.    Surgery

Step 1: Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during a surgical procedure. The choice includes intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best option for you.

Step 2: The Incision

The incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize the visibility of the scars. It is good for the surgeon and the patient to agree on which incision options are appropriate for the desired result. Incision options include:

  • Axillary: the advantage is that the scar is not lodged in the breast. And the main problem is that it is not known whether it affects axillary lymphatic drainage.
  • Periareolar: The one performed in the lower half of the areolar circumference. It will be ideal when the areola is large or medium in size, pinkish in color, and with a poorly defined contour or boundary. A poorly made scar in the periareolar area is something that is very easily seen.
  • Submammary: Breast augmentation is performed without touching the breast, allowing the pectoral muscle to be directly approached to raise it by performing a submuscular augmentation. 

Step 3: Placing the Breast Implant

After the incision has been made, the teardrop breast implant is inserted into space, or pocket, which can be:

  • Under the pectoral muscle (submuscular placement), or
  • Directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle (submammary or sub-glandular placement)
  • The method of placing and positioning the breast implant depends on the type of implant, your body type, and the surgeon's recommendations.

Step 4: Closing the Incisions

The incisions are closed with external sutures in the breast tissue and with adhesive sutures or surgical tape to close the skin. Over time the scars fade gradually.

Step 5: The Results

The results of the single breast teardrop implants are immediately visible. Satisfaction with your new image will increase as you recover from surgery.

Things You Should Consider After Single Breast Teardrop Implants Treatment

  • Regular follow-up with the plastic surgeon must be ensured by a consultation on the 8th day, 15th day, at 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and a year.
  • The resumption of normal activity can take place after only a few days.
  • Resumption of sports activity can be conceived after 2 or 3 weeks, depending on the patient's state of health.
  • Pregnancy can be considered several months after the surgery. Breastfeeding is not hampered.
  • The patient can fully see the result a few weeks after the procedure, while the tissues are getting soft. The breast gradually takes on its final, natural and harmonious shape.


Is Single Breast Teardrop Implants Procedure Painful?

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia; therefore, patients do not feel any pain during the surgery. Doctors prescribe pain relievers to ease the postoperative period.

What Are the Instructions before Single Breast Teardrop Implants?

When all the consultations and examinations are done, the patient will follow the surgeon's instructions and recommendations to prepare before the operation. This includes quitting smoking two weeks before surgery and stopping some medications or taking a vitamin or iron supplement.

Is There Any Disadvantage of Teardrop Breast Implant?

The main disadvantage is the risk of rotation of the implant, it is very low but present. It sometimes happens that after surgery, breast implants may rotate. In the case of round breast implants, this is not a problem since the breast retains the same shape.

In the case of teardrop breast implants, on the other hand, the rotation of the implant will modify the shape of the breast.

    I found Flymedi after a long search on the Internet. It is very convenient that they arrange your accommodation and ensure you are taken care of after the surgery. If you feel better, you can even go out to discover the city. In my case, that's what I did. I found everybody very attentive and professional in the hospital. The only downside is that I had a couple of delays because of the heavy traffic in Istanbul. It was a little stressful.

    I contacted Flymedi about getting a breast augmentation done and I was contacted by Abud shortly thereafter who was helped me through the initial planning phase so well. Since I am coming all the way from Africa and have never traveled alone, Abud organized a video call with the surgeon to go over some of the questions I had as well as my expectations of the surgery. I am very pleased with the service so far and already feel safe about traveling to Istanbul for my surgery

I felt so so comfortable and welcome. I’m not from Poland so I was super nervous going to another country for such a big procedure.

    I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

    I had an amazing experience with Flymedi for a Breast surgery, stress free. Particular thanks to Diana, that has been available 24hrs, and replied to all my questions. I couldn't expect better on that - thanks to her for being so helpful and caring. I had to worry about nothing apart from resting/recovering, everything was booked from A to Z. I am still in the process of healing, but so happy about the results so far. It went beyond my expectations, a true life changing surgery. Quite complicating to get proper advices during the healing process as it's virtual, but Diana made it much easier and trying to get all the info as fast as possible. Thanks again - this is safe and you have access to quality surgeons. I trusted mine and he did an amazing job, thanks Dr Erkin.
