HOW WILL THE PROCEDURE BE PERFORMED?
The breast implant can be placed either partially under the pectoralis major muscle (submuscular) or on top of the muscle and under the breast glands (subglandular), depending on the thickness of your breast tissue and its ability to adequately cover the breast implant. You should discuss with your surgeon the pros and cons of the implant placement selected for you.
Incisions can be placed either in the armpit , around the nipple or areolae, which usually enlarge in proportion to the increased breast size, or in the lower breast crease.
The surgeon will start by measuring your breast base width. Implants come in a variety of widths. You and your surgeon will also want to discuss cup size. Implants come in a variety of volumes and, generally, the larger you want your cup size, the larger the breast implant the surgeon will consider.
Your surgeon will also evaluate your existing tissue to determine if you have enough tissue to cover the breast implant.
A breast implant that is too large for your tissue can result in excessive stretching of the skin and result in the need for future corrective surgeries.
In addition, the implant edges may be apparent or visible postoperatively. Also, excessively large breast implants may speed up the effects of gravity and result in earlier droop or sag.
In addition to size, you will also be able to determine if you want to re-shape your breast. Some implants give the breast a more rounded appearance, while others create a breast shaped like a teardrop.
The Different Types of Breast Implants Available :
Breast augmentation or enlargement is achieved through the use of breast implants. The most commonly used breast implants are saline breast implants. The implant is similar to a balloon filled with saline or salt water. Saline breast implants have been used for over 20 years.
There are different types of breast implants and depending on your individual situation and goals, one type of implant may be recommended during your consultation.
Smooth Round Breast Implants
- this is probably the most popular implant as it achieves a full round and lifted look while still appearing natural.
Textured Round Breast Implants
- this is similar to the smooth round implant but with a textured coating. When placing the implant subglandular or above the muscle, this type of implant may be recommended. Some studies have shown that with the textured coating, there is less chance of capsular contracture or firmness around the implant. This opinion or fact is controversial.
Anatomical or Tear Drop Breast Implant
- this breast implant is shaped exactly as described - 'tear drop' - having more volume or saline in the lower part of the implant to give a more mature look. This implant may also be recommended in certain situations depending on your individual goals. Anatomical implants are textured.
The choice of implant filler, implant size, shape and other features will be determined based on your breast anatomy, body type and your desired increase in size. Your lifestyle, goals and personal preferences, as well your plastic surgeon's recommendations and sound surgical judgment are also determining factors.
