Breast Implants Brighton
Going through a breast enhancement surgery, also known as a breast augmentation procedure, is a very tough personal decision. This kind of surgery may still have its corresponding risks even if it is one of the most practiced cosmetic operations across the globe. Because of advancements in technology, the devices used for this kind of procedure have drastically improved—there is now a wide array of shapes, breast appearances, and sizes that they can choose from.
Because we’ve found that most of our clients already have a preconceived idea of the kind of breasts they want, it is best that they communicate these ideas to their surgeon for the best results. The surgeon will be able to give you an idea of what the procedure will be like along with probable outcomes. Giving the patients these kinds of glimpses of what can be done will be achieved through showing the patients before and after photos, 3D computer modeling, and the like.
What are the types of breast implants to choose from?
Breast implants vary over different shapes, sizes, and material. Finding the best fit for you requires going through a number of options—of course, our doctors will present several choices that give you the most natural-looking physique possible.
Implants can be classified according to two main types: saline and silicone. Saline implants were more widely used in the 80s and 90s but have since taken a back seat. They are made of a thin silicone outer shell and filled with a sterile saline solution. Although they are easier to insert and require a smaller incision than their silicone counterparts, they have been known to cause more complications like leakage, rippling, and rupturing.
Over the past five years, there has been development of newer and safer implants. These new implants are made of silicone and filled with a silicone gel solution. They are much closer to natural human breasts and less susceptible to complications. However, they require a larger incision (about 4.5cm) to insert.
Every option has its pros and cons. It is best to consult with one of our surgeons in order to determine which option is the safest and most compatible with your body.
What are the different incision techniques you can choose from?
Axillary Incision: This kind of incision is placed high on the front side of the hair-bearing skin. Although it does not leave any permanent scars on the breasts, it leaves a higher chance of pocket asymmetry. Axillary incisions should be carried out carefully, especially for patients with a thinner built. Moreover, it is almost impossible to have a supplementary surgery through this kind of incision; the inframammary fold incision is usually the best option if a second surgery is needed. Areola Incision: This kind of incision is placed in the underside of the areola. For patients who do not mind having scars, this is definitely an option.
Inframammary Fold Incision: This incision is 4.5 cm in length, and it is usually placed on the underside of the breast in the skin crease. The inframammary fold incision allows direct access to the space behind the breast. Umbilical Incision: This incision is only possible with a saline implant; cohesive gel implants are too large to insert with this type of incision. Umbilical incision is performed by inserting the implant in a small incision at the navel. It is much more difficult to perform but leaves absolutely no visible scars.
Even the best surgeries can result in slight discrepancies between the two breasts. Breast asymmetry is something very common, especially for thinner women. A good example of this is the higher risk of breast asymmetry from a axillary incision compared to an inframammary fold incision. Each patient should consult with a qualified surgeon to be able to understand and evaluate the different risks present in each procedure.
Although most of our patients do not have problems or issues, it is still important to discuss the potential and possible risks with your surgeon. You surgeon is capable of giving you an overview of the different possible scenarios, including post-operation and recovery rituals.
