A brief overview.
Breast augmentation surgery is an operation designed to improve common breast aesthetic issues, such as lack of breast volume, flattened breast shape and drooping nipple position. The operation can be combined with breast lift (mastopexy) procedures to further enhance the breast form. . . . read more.
The breast is composed of a skin envelope that surrounds glandular tissue and fat. The breast rests on a broad and thick muscle called the pectoralis major. The shape of a particular breast is determined by the quality of the breast skin envelope, the tissue it is filled with, and the relationships of the breast to the surrounding anatomic landmarks, such as the axilla (armpit), sternum (breast bone), clavicle (collar bone) and abdominal wall. . . . read more.
For women with small breasts, breast augmentation surgery is a safe and effective way to improve breast shape and volume. Often, women with small breasts are pleased with their natural breast shape, but wish for more breast volume. With a carefully selected breast implant, the natural breast shape can be preserved, while the implant provides additional breast volume. Some patients with small breasts are unhappy with both the size and shape of their breasts. For these patients, special implants and placement techniques can be used to enhance both the breast shape and improve breast volume. Other patients with small breasts may have some asymmetry between breasts. Unbalanced breast volume can be corrected with breast implants and other techniques. . . . read more.
The constricted breast is characterized by both a small breast volume and a drooping appearance. In severe cases, this breast shape is referred to as a tuberous breast, or a tubular breast deformity. The constricted breast has a fold beneath the breast (the infra-mammary fold) that appears to be too high. The presence of a high infra-mammary fold constricts the lower portion of the breast. The upper portion of the breast sags over the lower portion of the breast. The base of the constricted breast is narrow. Often, the breast is so constricted that the tissues behind the areola will bulge and make the areola very large. . . . read more.
Mastopexy, or breast lift, is a procedure designed to improve the appearance of sagging breasts. The goal of surgery is to obtain a more youthful appearance, restore breast perkiness, and to improve the position of the areola and nipple in relation to the breast. Breast lift surgery can be performed by itself or more commonly in combination with breast augmentation using implants. . . . read more.
There are a number of reasons why someone might seek revision breast implant surgery. For example, you may have had a breast augmentation done with an older style of saline breast implant, and are now interested in a change to the newest generation of silicone implants which have a more natural feel. Or perhaps you had a breast augmentation years ago, and are now dissatisfied with breast sagginess that might have resulted from pregnancy or weight-loss. . . . read more.
In our practice, we use the infra-mammary, per-areolar and axillary incisions for breast augmentation. Either a saline implants or silicone implants can be placed through the three types of breast augmentation incision locations, with some limitations that we'll discuss below. The recovery time for breast augmentation is about the same for each incision type. Let's look at each of the three breast augmentation approaches in detail. . . . read more.
At this point in time, there are two types of breast implants available: saline filled implants and silicone gel filled implants. Both implants have a silicone 'shell' that can either be smooth or texturized. In the US market, both Mentor and Allergan manufacture breast implants and have FDA approval for use in breast augmentation patients. Silicone gel filled implants are by far the most natural in consistency and feel and have less 'wrinkling' or 'rippling' than saline filled implants. We encourage you to hold and feel both types of implants in your hands before making a decision. . . . read more.
