What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure of placing special implants under your breast to enhance its size and shape. The procedure is done under general anesthesia. It is usually an out patient procedure though the patient may opt to be admitted in the hospital for one day.
What is the difference between silicone filled gel implants and saline filled implants?
There are two kinds of implants approved for breast augmentation -saline filled and silicone gel filled implants. I personally prefer using silicone gel filled implants because of its softer and more natural feel compared to saline. Saline implants also have to be filled during the surgery which runs the potential of contamination with bacteria or fungi inside the implant, though this is rare.
Where are the incisions placed?
I offer 3 types of placement of incisions. Peri-areolar, inframamary and axillary. I personally prefer a peri-areolar incision since this is the most hidden location. The scar is where the skin meets the areola and when healed, is unnoticeable. However, this might be not possible in women who have very small areolas wherein other sites might be of benefit.
An inframamary incision is placed on the skin crease or fold. This type of incision is best for breasts that have some volume on the lower pole thus having a very well defined crease to hide the incision.
A trans axillary approach is also an option for women with very flat breast and small areolas. However, there is a risk of a visible scar in the armpit area.
What is better, putting the implant over or under the muscle?
The breast implants are positioned either over or under the pectoralis major muscle. I personally prefer an implant placement under the muscle. The advantage of this is a more natural appearance of the breast, more tissue to cover the implants, parti
