Is Augmentation Mammoplasty for you?

Augmentation Mammoplasty in BostonMany women consider undergoing cosmetic breast surgery in order to regain more aesthetically pleasing or fuller breasts and/or to boost their confidence and self image. They may be dissatisfied with the size of their bust and simply need to increase volume. Breast augmentation can also provide reconstructive relief due to an injury or Mastectomy.

When considering this type of enhancement surgery, it’s important to have clarity in terms of why you are interested in having the procedure. Because of the seriousness of the operation, it should have nothing to do with gaining acceptance from another person. This is something one does solely for themselves.

There’s no doubt that Boston plastic surgery can be one of the most rewarding decisions of a person’s life. But it is vital for anyone considering, what is frequently and fondly called, a “Boob Job”, to ensure they are performing significant due diligence about every aspect of breast augmentation.

I was much more prepared for my consult after downloading the list of questions. Some of them surprised me. I found it made a world of difference for me.Actual Client

Breast Implant Placement

breast augmentation Boston placement imageThere are typically three options for breast implant placement. Depending on your anatomy, your preferences (pre/post consultation) and your Boston plastic surgeon’s recommendations. Placement can be made behind the two layers of muscle on the chest.

They are called the pectoralis major and minor. Or the implants can be placed in front of the muscle. As a third option, the implants can be placed partially behind the muscle. Discuss these options thoroughly with your plastic surgeon. There are considerations to be made for each. Consult with your surgeon regarding Breast Augmentation Boston.

Breast Incisions

The cosmetic or plastic surgeon draws guidelines and markings necessary for the surgery. Anesthesia is applied to ensure you are comfortable during the surgery. This is either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. During your consultation, you and your surgeon discuss what incision type will be the most beneficial for you. Factors influencing your decision include how large you want you breasts to be, the implant type and what’s best for your body.
Types of incisions for the breast related surgery

Transaxillary Incision: Can be anywhere between 1-2 inches in length and can be the incision of choice especially when the breast implant will be placed under the chest muscle. This incision type allows a relatively easy implant placement and small incision.

Inframammary Incision: Is made under the breast. Your surgeon creates a pocket under or above the muscle based on your prior discussion. This incision will be larger or smaller depending on the selected implant type (saline or silicone).

Periareolar Incision: This incision type is created at the areola of the breast. The decision to use this incision type will be influenced by the need or desire for multiple procedures such as the inclusion of a breast lift.

Transumbilical Incision: This incision type is made in the belly button. Micro-imaging technology is used to view the procedure on a screen. A path is created to the breast and a pocket is created at the implant site. Saline implants are used in conjunction with this incision-type.

The cosmetic and plastic MD’s at Elite Breast Implants Boston are among the best in the country.

Types of Implants

When deciding what type of breast implants to choose for your Boston-based Breast Augmentation, be objective and open about what type suits your body’s needs.

ModernSilicone Breast Implants: Modern silicone implants are gel-based. The most popular silicone breast implant sold is called the “Gummy Bear Implant“. Silicone implants generally feel the most natural and so they are widely favored by many women.

Because silicone is a hazardous material however, the FDA recommends candidates be at least 22 years old. You will want to discuss implant safety with your candidate cosmetic surgeon.

Saline-filled Breast Implants: Saline implants are filled with sterile saline solution or salt water. These come in textured or smooth silicone shells. They are available in round or tear dropped shapes and are available in low and high profiles.

This type of implant is usually inserted into the smooth gel mentor implants for breat augmentation bostonbreast pocket empty and later filled to the desired proportion with its respective solution. It allows for greater incision option and is considered the safer option generally speaking. The FDA recommends a minimum age of 18 for this type of implant.

Unless it’s a consideration due to a necessary reconstructive procedure.

Gummy Bear Breast Implants: This type of implant requires a longer incision than other implants. It is more shaped than round with a thicker and firmer consistency. It maintains its shape better than any other type of implant and is considered the least likely to rupture. By all accounts it has become the most popular.

smooth gel mentor implants for breat augmentation bostonRound Breast Implants: Can make breasts seem more full. Are considered to have less chance of sliding internally and allow for greater projection when higher profile implants are chosen.

Textured Breast Implants: Interestingly, textured implants are designed so that as the breasts heal, they develop scar tissue around the implants helping to keep them in place. This also serves to lessen the risk of scar capsule development.

Smooth Breast Implants:
Are very natural in terms of their softness. They can move within the pocket however.

The Breast Augmentation Boston Operation

Once the Plastic or Cosmetic Surgeon has made the incision and created the breast pocket, they will insert the selected implants one at a time either under the image showing placement of the breast implants during a breast augmentation in Boston Massachusettsmuscle, which is called a sub-muscular insertion. Or over the muscle (pectoral muscle). Again, everything is dependent on the other.

The exact procedures depend on what type of implants were selected, which influences the incision selected etc. What’s ultimately most importance is that prior to your surgery, you have played a major role in determining your selected options and the resultant exact procedure you undergo with your board-certified surgeon.

After the Augmentation procedure the incisions made to the breast tissue are sealed with sutures. Boston Plastic or Cosmetic surgeons performing the operation will often use skin adhesive, surgical tape or sutures to seal the incisions to the skin. Expert-level Breast Augmentation Boston.
