Types of incisions in breast augmentation surgery and Mastopexy
The technique is a sensible pattern of incisions that surgeons often use for breast augmentation and breast lift. This involves making an anchor-like incision in the chest. This incision makes it possible to remove excess skin and tissue after implant placement in the breast. This is a reliable technique that provides the best lift for the breasts even if they are severely sagging. Other types of incisions used by surgeons include:
Crescent incision (Peri-areolar)
If the chest is slightly sagging; Surgeons use the crescent incision method. It cannot reach a high degree of lift, so surgeons often do not use it.
Donut incision (circumareolar)
Surgeons use this method less. They use this incision when they are faced with light to medium sagging breasts.
Lollipop incision (vertical)
Surgeons use this method when your breasts are moderately to severely sagging.
Breast implant implantation
Before surgery, your surgeon will talk to you about the types of implants and decide which implant is right for you. Your surgeon will then insert the implant into your breast. They can place the implant above the pectoralis muscle (major pectoralis), below the pectoralis muscle, or a combination of both.
Implantation of glandular implants (above the pectoralis muscle)
Glandular implants are well known as subsets of implants. The surgeon places this implant on top of your chest muscle. As the implant gets closer to the skin surface, the implant creates a distinct breast shape. This method is less invasive, so you will feel less pain in the first few days after surgery. Placing the implant on top of the pectoralis muscle makes the implant move less when the pectoralis muscle moves or bends.
Implantation of submuscular implants (below the pectoralis muscle)
Submuscular implants are known as subcutaneous implants. Your surgeon will place the implant under your chest muscle. This is less felt or seen because the muscles produce excellent soft tissue pads. These implants are not directly under the breast tissue, so they are less likely to interfere with mammography. This placement is also more aggressive and can lead to a longer recovery period.
Implantation of two-level implants (combination)
Two-level implant implantation is a combination of two techniques. The upper part of the implant is placed under the muscle. This reduces the risk of implants. The lower part is in direct contact with the breast tissue. This helps to create a more curved foundation.
What are the different types of breast implants?
There are several types of breast implants, including saline, silicone gel, and highly cohesive silicone gel.
Saline implants consist of an outer silicone attachment containing sterile saltwater (saline). The surgeon inserts a hollow silicone shell into the breast, then inflates it with saltwater through a small valve. Implantation of saline implants leaves smaller wounds than surgery with silicone implants. This is because the silicone implant is filled before the operation. Saline implants are the least popular among breast implants. This is because they rupture, reduce swelling and lose volume over time. Because of their consistency, they may look less natural than silicone implants.
Silicone gel implants consist of external silicone attachments with a soft silicone gel core. To insert the silicone gel, your surgeon must make a large incision. Because unlike saline implants, they are filled before surgery. Silicone gel implants are stronger than saline implants and make them less prone to wrinkles. Many patients agree that silicone gel implants feel and look more natural than saline implants.
Highly cohesive silicone gel
The highly cohesive silicone gel implant consists of an outer silicone continuum and contains a stronger silicone gel. This firm consistency makes the implant feel and look more natural. There is no possibility of rupture of this type of implant even when the work is done - and its contents do not come out like other types of implants. The current design of breast implants means that they can generally last more than a decade. They also do not need to be replaced regularly. Manufacturers of quality implants usually offer lifetime warranties to demonstrate trust in their implants. Some brands replace the implant even if there is a problem. Your surgeon should choose the right implant for you based on his or her experience and dealing with good brands.
Breast implant approaches
There are two different types of breast implants, which are round and teardrop.
Round breast implants increase the size of your upper and lower breasts. It also makes your breasts look fuller and higher.
Tear or anatomical implant increases the size of the lower part of your breast relative to the upper part. This gives you a more precise look that is more in line with the natural shape of your breasts. This is suitable for patients who want their breasts to grow normally. Your surgeon will decide with you what type of implant is right for you to use in your breast augmentation and lift.
Breast augmentation and breast lift advisory
Before the operation, you should see a surgeon to enlarge and lift your breast. This generally takes 15 minutes to 1 hour. During this time, your surgeon will ask questions to find out more about you. They talk about the method and the risks and side effects. In addition, they understand your purpose for the action and make sure they are realistic. They examine your breasts and ask permission to take pictures of your breasts before and after. Keep in mind that if you do not feel comfortable with this, you can deny. Your surgeon will ask about the following:
