Breast augmentation is the surgical procedure of adding volume and size to the breasts by adding tissue to the existing breast tissue. This can be done through various methods, including implants, fat injections, and skin grafts. There are many reasons women may undergo breast augmentation surgery. These reasons can include increasing fullness, achieving rounder cleavage, replacing volume lost after pregnancy and weight loss, achieving overall body aesthetic balance and proportion, and more.
A breast fold (inframammary incision) is a thin horizontal crease that lies along the lower edge of the breast where the breast and chest come together. This is a preferred method of incision as it gives direct access to the breast pocket; accommodating various breast implant and placements positions. The scar is minimally visible.
An armpit scar location (transaxillary incision) is a small horizontal incision placed between the natural crease of the armpits and below the breast tissue. This incision makes it possible to see the breast more clearly and gives the surgeon a better view of the breast tissue. The surgeon can then make changes to the size, shape, and position of the breasts using surgery or implants. Incisions are easy to hide.
An areola scar location (periareolar incision) is a horizontal incision that is made in the upper inner area of the areola (the dark circle around the nipple). This incision allows for better access to the nipple and areola, which makes it easier to implant silicone gel or saline capsules into them. It also allows for more direct placement of the implant.
Saline implant: Saline implants are breast augmentation devices that use a saline solution to increase the size, shape, and contour of the breasts. Saline implants are one of the most popular types of breast implants because they are relatively painless and can be quickly and easily put in. They are also one of the most durable types of breast implant and more likely to last longer than silicone implants. Ideal for women with slight breast asymmetries. A smaller incision is conducted due to the insertion of an empty implant which results in less pain, shorter surgery, minimal scarring and quicker recovery.
Silicone implant is filled with a durable, thick, and cohesive silicone gel that is closely analogous to breast tissue. The gel helps to make the implant feel softer and give it a more natural look. Ideal for women with very little natural breast tissue or fat. Silicone implants are recognized as safe and FDA-approved. Silicone is being made with a high-quality cohesive gel that deters leakage into the body in the event of a rupture.
Ideal breast implant is a saline filled device that has been designed to restore your natural breast shape, size and feel. Implants are made of high-quality medical-grade saline and are custom made for each patient. It is a popular type of breast implant as it takes the best of Saline Breast Implants and Silicone Breast Implants to combine them into a brand new design.
Fat transfer is a surgical procedure that uses fat from another area of the body to increase the size, shape, and contour of the breasts. The fat is injected into the breasts through small, thin incisions made in the skin. The fat cells are then expanded and redistributed in the breasts, resulting in increased size, shape, and volume. Breast augmentation fat transfer is a safe and effective way to achieve a more natural-looking breast.
