In modern plastic surgery, boob job or breast augmentation with implants is one of the most popular and demanding operations. Such a procedure is resorted to by patients who are dissatisfied with the shape of the mammary glands, their asymmetry, or age-related changes, due to which tissue sinking occurs. Bust clinic specialists will help you find the best implantation option and create a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing, and natural breast shape.
Indications for the operation
Most often, an increase in the mammary glands with the help of implantation is carried out at the personal request of the patient. However, the main reasons for the procedure are considered:
- pronounced asymmetry of the mammary glands;
- consequences of mastectomy for serious diseases;
- age-related changes (ptosis);
- prolapse of tissues due to pregnancy and lactation.
At the same time, during the procedure, other cosmetic imperfections are eliminated, for example, stretching or reshaping of the areola. Before doing breast augmentation with implants, you need to consult with a specialist and choose the best solution.
What is taken into account before the operation?
For the procedure, the specialist must have a complete picture. You cannot hide chronic diseases from the doctor, the presence of allergic reactions to certain groups of drugs. Before the operation, you will definitely have to pass a number of tests and undergo examinations that will prevent the possible negative consequences of breast augmentation. The choice of the shape, size, and other features of the endoprosthesis is influenced by the following factors:
- the age and physique of the patient;
- original breast shape;
- chest volume;
- the severity of subcutaneous fat;
- the elasticity of tissues.
In addition, the doctor should be aware of whether the patient plans to give birth and breastfeed in the future: this will allow choosing the optimal placement of the implant that will not interfere with lactation.
Breast augmentation methods
One of three types of surgical access can be used for the procedure. Areolar. To insert the implants into the breast, an incision is made around the periphery of the nipple-areola. The main advantage of this intervention is that there will be no visible scars after healing. The scar will be located exactly on the border of pigmentation, so it will be almost impossible to see it. In addition, this access has other advantages:
- Additionally, the areola zone and the nipple are corrected, as a result of which ideal aesthetics can be achieved.
- The possibility of damage to nerve fibers in the chest area is excluded. This preserves the sensitivity of the breasts.
- It is possible to correct the initial stage of mastocytosis if it is detected in the patient.
At the same time, such access also has disadvantages. This access is not recommended for breast augmentation in patients planning to breastfeed in the future. During the operation, there is a risk of damage to the milk ducts.
Submammary... To place the implants, an incision is made in the natural skin fold. This allows you to hide possible scars after surgery: they can only be seen in the supine position. The advantage of this method is that the surgeon sees the surgical field and can place the implants as symmetrically as possible, without resorting to subsequent correction. In addition, it is this method that will allow you to make large breasts. At the same time, there is no risk of damage to the milk ducts, so such an operation is suitable for patients planning further motherhood. There are also disadvantages to the procedure: the scar, although hidden by the tissues of the mammary gland, still exists, and the rehabilitation process can take a long time.
Axillary… This type of access is characterized by the area of incisions: access to the operating field is carried out through the armpits. At the same time, scars do not affect the aesthetics of the mammary glands. However, the scars remain visible, making this the least popular procedure among patients who prefer revealing clothes. Nevertheless, it is the axillary approach that is considered the safest and most convenient from the point of view of surgeons. The operation is performed using an endoscope, there is no risk of damage to the nerve endings or milk ducts. At the same time, the axillary type of incision allows the installation of implants of any size and shape.
Types of implants
For the operation, different types of endoprostheses can be used. For a long time, it was silicone implants were heard, but the list of used materials is much wider. Silicone. Allows you to easily shape a natural silhouette. The multi-layer shell retains the gel, which can vary in composition and level of density. For example, a highly cohesive filler perfectly holds its shape and remains in place even if the shell breaks. However, due to its high density, it makes the breasts too “firm” to the touch. The standard consistency of the silicone implant allows for a beautiful and natural breast shape. Saline… Implants with such filling are considered less popular for breast augmentation, but they are still widely used in plastic surgery to create a beautiful and natural small shape. Most often they are used for Areolar access since they require a minimal incision: in some cases, the sheath can be filled after installation. Hydrogel. A modern and non-toxic material that is widely used in plastic surgery. You can easily choose such an endoprosthesis with the ideal size and shape. Silica gel balls. Not the most popular filler that is quite rare in modern plastic surgery. Its main advantage is considered to be lightweight.
