Breast Implants & Scar less endoscopic Breast Implant
Breast augmentation using silicone implants is regarded as one of the most effective methods for enlargement of breasts. The use of silicone implants are medically tested and approved. No problems are noticed with this process, like problems with lactation, etc. The breast implants manufactured by reputed companies like Mentor or Allergan are available in various sizes and shapes. The procedure results in a very natural appearance. These implants are very reliable since they are batch-marked and offer warranties.
Planning of silicone-implant breast enlargement surgery
Prior to the surgery, dimensions of the breast and chest are marked. These measurements give a rough idea about the base diameter and cup size. It is the base diameter that decides the maximum projection and volume of the breast implant. High profile implants are selected for those who require a large projection for a given base parameter. The patient is made to try a few sample implants so that the most appropriate implant can be selected. This also helps in determining the breast size and volume after the surgery.
For performing the surgery, various incisions like infra-mammary, periareolar, axillary, and transumbilical incisions are utilized. The transaxillary and infra-mammary incisions are most commonly selected.
Costs of Breast Implant Procedure
Depending upon the type of breast implant, the surgery expense also varies. When Mentor and Allergan implants are used, the procedure costs approximately $1,900 (inclusive of all the costs). There is a reduction in the cost if Nagor implants are used ($1,700).
Breast augmentation & breast implants FAQWhat is a Breast Implant?
Breast implants are sac-like structures that are synthesized from special medical grade silicone rubber. These structures are placed on the underlying areas of chest tissues. Cohesive silicone material is used nowadays for manufacturing the breast implants.
Are silicone breast implants safe?
Various reliable studies have established that silicone implants are safe to use. The Institute of Medicine has stated that "There is no evidence that silicone implants are responsible for any major diseases of the whole body. Women are exposed to silicon constantly in their daily lives." Further details can be accessed at www.nap.edu.
Which firms manufacture breast implants?
Several companies are involved in the manufacturing of breast implants. Mostly, the implants manufactured by Mentor and Allergan are preferred. This can be attributed to a number of reasons like excellent track record and implant warranties, etc. Those implants that are manufactured by Mentor are known as MemoryGel Silicone Gel breast implants. As stated on the website of Mentor, "MemoryGel™ silicone breast implants feature a cohesive, gelatin-like silicone substance that acts as a solid rather than a liquid.
Several conditions are to be kept in mind before the surgery. Make sure that only the best implants are chosen. If a very cheap surgery is offered, then it is necessary that the specifications of the implant are clarified. Several specifications like implant label, manufacture date, bar code, etc., can be checked to ensure the quality of implant. A card mentioning the implant volume is also given. The originality and quality of the implant can be assured.
What are the different styles of the implants?
A number of implant types are available. They are classified based on the amount of forward projection. The different classes are low profile, moderate profile, high profile, and ultra-high profile. The moderate profile implants are chosen by most Indian women for a better match between body frame and breast projection.
What is scarless breast augmentation?
In order to perform the surgery that is free of scars, implants are endoscopically placed through an axillary incision. Healing takes place very quickly in this process. The scars are hidden within the axillary crease, making it almost invisible. For this reason, the procedure is called scarless breast augmentation.
Are there any non-surgical ways of breast augmentation?
The only non-surgical method of breast augmentation is the use of padded bras. If the patient does not prefer the use of implants, then she can resort to fat injection. The common sources of fat are the buttocks, tummy, and thighs. After a sufficient amount of fat is taken, they are carefully injected into the breast. The amount of fat that is injected varies with the curvature of the breasts. A considerable increase in breast size can be achieved. The results, however, are not of a permanent nature. It is observed that almost 30% to 50% of the fat is absorbed. Due to this absorption, some irregularities in the breast are also observed. Due to the above reasons, employing silicone implants is the only reliable option.
How long should I wait to resume exercise and other strenuous activities after the implant surgery?
Generally, almost all the women after the surgery are able to perform non-stressful work. The healing rate differs from individual to individual. It takes almost 6 weeks for complete recovery. Moderate exercises can be started after a week of surgery. In contrast, strenuous activities like swimming, resistance training, etc., should be undertaken. The patient is also advised not to lift the arms above the head for the reason that it can cause tension in the breast. This guideline is to be followed for about 3 weeks after the surgery. For increasing the blood circulation rate, walking is normally recommended. For shielding the breasts from external forces, it is necessary to use customized pressure garments like sports bra for at least 6 weeks.
What is augmentation mastopexy or breast lift with silicone implant?
The breast lift procedure is an appropriate remedy for those who have sagging breasts or insufficient breast tissues. Through this procedure, a good breast shape can be attained. If adequate breast tissue is obtained, then it is possible to perform a successful breast lift just by breast tissue re-arrangement. This eradicates the requirement of implants.
What is capsular contracture?
The body reacts to foreign substances in many ways. In our context, the body reacts by forming a fibrotic cover. Usually, this is called capsule. The capsule unnecessarily presses the implants, thereby deforming them. This condition is known as capsular contracture. For decreasing the onset of such a condition, it is very much essential to regularly perform various massage exercises. If this is not practiced, then a surgery may be necessary to remove this chunk of tissue. An abnormal hardening of the implant can be experienced by the patient. In such a condition, it is necessary for the patient to consult with the doctor as soon as possible.
