Things to know about Breast Augmentation Implants surgery
- What is breast augmentation? Is it same as Breast implants surgery?
- My breasts are hanging and look empty after breast feeding. Would breast augmentation take care of that?
- My breasts are unequal in size. Can breast implant surgery help?
- Would breast augmentation correct the asymmetry in the location of my nipple and areola?
- Can I breast feed my baby after breast implant surgery?
- What is an Implant? How does a breast implant feel?
- Are the Breast Implants Safe?
- Which implants are better for me- silicone or saline?
- They have a very natural consistency and thus provide a more natural feel.
- They give a cohesive feeling. Cohesive means that it tends to remain whole. This means that even if the shell were to rupture, its content would not spill out. It would remain whole without any divisions. In the past, its content used to leak through the micropores of the shell and caused capsular contractures. Nowadays, these leakages have been almost completely reduced thanks to the cohesive properties of the content and to the new shells made of several superimposed layers.
- They do not lose their volume as time goes by.
- They do not make 'liquid' sounds during physical activities.
- What in case I get hurt and the shell gets ruptured? Would silicon harm me?
- Where the incision for breast implant surgery would be made? Does the surgery leave scars on the breast?
- Areola - with this method, the surgeon makes the incision around the bottom half of the areola.
- Transaxillary or "transax" - this incision is placed in the armpit.
- Inframmary - also known as a "crease incision". A small incision is made in the crease of the breast.
- I do not want a scar on my breast. Can you put the implant through my belly button?
- Can the implants be inserted through an areola incision?
- Going through the areola means partially cutting through breast tissue to reach the plane under the breast. It is generally not preferred if there is a choice.
- The incision usually used when doing this approach is called a Multiple-W incision or zig-zag incision or a "lightning sign" incision. The advantage is that it stretches out to become larger than a linear or simple curved incision because the zig-zag allows it.... this creates a large enough portal to slip in the implant without damaging it.
- I am a black lady. Would the scar through areola be more visible in my case?
- Will I experience pain during or after the surgery?
