The Beauty of Choice

Breast Augmentation Options //

Breast Implant Surface and Shape Types

Implant surface options are a smooth or textured silicone wall. Textured implants demonstrated less hardening (capsular contracture) around the implants, but smooth implants are less prone to rippling. Dr. Park and Dr. Rebowe prefer to reserve textured implants for cases where capsules have been a significant problem or the implant position is expected to be hard to control.

A variety of implant shapes are available, but in most scenarios, Dr. Park and Dr. Rebowe prefer round implants, which become thicker at the base when standing due to gravity. Anatomic implants attempt to replicate the breast shape with a teardrop pattern, larger at the bottom than at the top of the implant. A possible disadvantage of teardrop implants is the deformity that occurs if the implant turns. Breast implant shapes can also be customized in terms of projection. Low, medium, and high-profile implants have increasingly narrow bases and greater projections, which are useful in patients with thin, narrow chests desiring larger implants.

Different Incisions for Breast Augmentation

The implant may be inserted by four alternate approaches. An inframammary incision is just above the breast fold in the central breast and provides the best exposure to place the implant and modify the breast shape or position. This location is usually well hidden by bras and bikinis, and it can be difficult to see if it heals well or lies in the new inframammary fold. It is the most common incision in the US and the world.

The periareolar incision is placed around the areola, the dark area surrounding the nipple. A higher risk of altered nipple sensation and impaired breastfeeding would be expected with this technique, but most studies have failed to show a significant difference. This technique can provide adequate exposure with a nearly imperceptible scar if the areola is large enough and less breast modification is necessary. By removing the outer rim of the areola and tightening it with a suture, the areola can be reduced in size or lifted (mastopexy).

In transaxillary breast augmentation, an incision is made in the armpit, keeping scars off the breasts, using a camera to expose and modify the breast. The technique cannot be used with large silicone implants or breasts needing significant changes in shape but can be used for most saline implants. Using a remote incision in the belly button, a TUBA, Trans Umbilical Breast Augmentation, can be performed without a visible scar but voids the warranty of the implant because of the trauma that can occur to the implant during placement from a distance. It is very difficult to control changes to the breast, and asymmetry frequently results.

Breast Augmentation Implant Location

The implants may be placed either beneath the breast tissue (submammary or sub-glandular breast augmentation), below the pectoralis major muscle (subpectoral breast augmentation), or under the pectoralis major fascia (subfascial breast augmentation). With saline implants, thin patients with minimal breast tissue, and patients with a history of problems with previous implants, deeper placement is recommended. Subpectoral placement is the most common. Subpectoral and subfascial implants are less likely to develop capsular contracture due to the constant “massage” that occurs with muscle motion. Submammary placement, especially with silicone implants, can have excellent cosmetic results in the right patients.

Silicone Versus Saline Breast Augmentation

A breast implant is a silicone shell filled with sterile saline (salt water) or silicone gel. The silicone gel-filled implants have been reinstated for cosmetic use after FDA clearance in 2006 after the highly publicized controversy regarding the long-term health consequences of silicone gel implants. The findings of all research studies have not demonstrated any consistent relationship between silicone breast implants and systemic illness.

Additional Reading

The new generation of silicone breast implants is less prone to the slow silicone leak (bleed) that was felt to be responsible for most of the local problems with silicone implants. Gel implants are more soft and natural, especially with less overlying breast tissue. However, silicone implants require larger incisions than saline breast implants since they are prefilled.

Breast Implant Size

Prior to consultation, a general idea of the desired breast size should be known. A simple and inexact trick that can be used at home is filling a sealable bag with different amounts of water or rice on top of the breast in a bra of the desired cup size and evaluating the result. Photographs from magazines can be a helpful guide for those patients unable to verbalize a desired size. Together with Dr. Park, a more exact plan will be made using implant samples and measured breast dimensions to determine a safe and effective size and the need for any supplemental surgery such as a breast lift (mastopexy) or change of the vertical or transverse position. Computer-generated imaging can be helpful but is very inexact.

Breast Implant Brands

With our breast augmentations Mobile patients consistently love their results and love that our breast implants are highly customizable. Thanks to innovative breast implant designers, implants come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and profiles. You can be very particular about the look you want to achieve, how you want your new breasts to feel, and how you want them to move with your body. You also have options when it comes to how firm or soft you want your breasts to be. Because they understand that every patient has unique goals for breast augmentation, Dr. Park and Dr. Rebowe are diligent about staying up to date with the available implant options, as well as the benefits and limitations of each type of breast implant they offer. Dr. Park and Dr. Rebowe only recommend products from breast implant brands that meet high standards for safety and patient satisfaction. They’re proud to offer Allergan, Mentor, Ideal, and Sientra breast implants.

After The Procedure

Breast Augmentation Recovery and Aftercare //

After your breast augmentation surgery, a post-operative garment or tube top will be placed and should be worn for the first few weeks. Pain medication is usually necessary for one to two days. Activities, including driving and lifting, will be limited. The duration of which will be discussed during your consultation. Scars will begin to fade and soften in three months. Revisional surgery may be necessary for size change, implant type change, capsular contracture, bleeding, infection, asymmetry, rippling, leak, or rupture. If rupture does occur, saline is absorbed by the body, whereas silicone is permanent unless removed surgically.

Breast Augmentation Frequently Asked Questions //

Any woman who desires a larger breast may be a candidate for breast augmentation if she has realistic expectations. There are other techniques to increase the size of the breasts, but the most trusted technique is the placement of an implant surgically. Multiple options are discussed during a breast augmentation consultation so our plastic surgeons can help you determine if breast augmentation surgery is right for you.

A breast implant does obscure some of the breast, reducing mammogram sensitivity, but less so with submuscular or subfascial augmentation. Special views have been designed to minimize this concern.

In most cases, elective breast surgery is advisable after full breast development, typically around 18 years for most women. Keep in mind that breast size and shape can still change with age and pregnancies. Saline implants are FDA-approved for those 18 and older, while silicone implants are approved for those 22 and older. Both options are available for breast reconstruction, regardless of age.

Selecting the right breast implant size is a personal choice, tailored to your preferences and what you feel is ideal for your body. Anatomical limitations may apply based on your existing breast and skin tissue, as well as your skin's elasticity. During a consultation, your surgeon uses a specialized breast implant sizing kit to work with you. Together, you'll determine the best implant size range considering factors like breast width, existing tissue, and your unique skin elasticity.

"The best decisions I have ever made This was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The results have improved my whole body image and have even enhanced my marriage. The size and shape is exactly what I’d hoped for."
