This surgery has an advantage as the implant is shaped like a tear-drop and natural breast shape is achievable together with volume. As Ruby uses advanced endoscope for breast surgery, this allows for a wider field of view for precise and minimized side effects.

Tear-drop breast surgery has the shape of a tear-drop which has a similar design to a general breast shape. Unlike the round implant, there are fewer side effects such as deformation or movement of the implant as there is less floating space; this implant shape has an advantage of achieving near-perfect surgical results.
