Will breast implants cause stretch marks?

Stretch marks are caused by very rapid stretching, breakdown, and separation of the underlying skin dermal layer. Often it is associated with hormonal changes and a genetic predisposition. While it is quite possible to have stretch marks after breast augmentation, it is unusual. Usually, the breast stretch marks occur when other body striae are present before the actual breast implants.

Silicone Implants have a more natural feel due to the viscous quality of the silicone which mimics breast tissue. Any leakage is difficult to detect as silicone is not absorbed and the breast volume remains unchanged. An MRI may be needed to detect any silent leakage, because they come pre-filled with silicone, they require a somewhat larger incision, typically beneath the breasts or through the areola. There are no valves or openings to adjust the volume or size of the implant. Currently, one must be at least 22 years old to receive silicone implants.

Will my breast implants feel real?

The feel of your implants will depend on the type of implant selected, placement above or over the muscle, the thickness of your existing breast tissues, and the type of capsule formed by your body. Silicone implants will feel more like your normal breast fat, the anatomical shaped thick silicone gel implants will feel firmer, and over the muscle placement will have more normal pliability especially if you have a soft capsule and some natural breast tissue of your own. The smaller the implant chosen, the less noticeable it becomes and textured implants can feel overly stiff and immobile. Many women are satisfied with a large variety of breast implant choices.

How can I reduce pain after my breast augmentation?

Select a surgeon who has a long experience with breast augmentation and performs precise and delicate surgery avoiding trauma to the underlying ribs and surrounding tissues. Going under the muscle is always more painful as well as selecting large implants that push against and irritate the adjacent nerves. Ask your surgeon about instilling long-acting local anesthetics during surgery and the use of anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxants. An early return to normal arm movements and exercise helps relieve tightness and discomfort.

What are the recommended arm exercises following Breast Augmentation?

Many plastic surgeons feel that it is important to gently and progressively stretch the pectoral chest muscles after surgery. These exercises can aid in relaxing any spasms and abnormal muscular tightness as well as reducing pain and tenderness, However, be certain to proceed cautiously without sudden or forceful lifting or pushing. These exercises can include alternating rolling and circular movements of the shoulders and arms as well as stretching backward with the hands cupped behind the head.

To provide a fuller appreciation of each implants potential effects. Our office offers special implant sizers. When placed in soft loosely paneled sports bras that mimic the natural response of breast tissues and covered by a thin camisole top, this breast sizer system allows a very popular visual clue to the anticipated results. The breast implant should be no wider than your existing breast. One can select a slightly larger implant for submuscular placement to account for the flattening. Tendency of the overlying muscle. Over time, normal atrophy breast tissues, as well as compression by the implants, will result in an apparent loss of size and a somewhat smaller outcome.

Can Asymmetrical Breasts be Augmented?

Breasts are seldom perfectly even or symmetrical. The natural boundaries may differ with breast folds at different heights.
Nipples and areola may be spaced unevenly on the chest wall and project in separate directions. Irregularities in the underlying rib cage will often be accentuated by the addition of implants. Perfect symmetry in these circumstances is difficult to achieve.

What bra size will I be after breast augmentation?

Bras are measured in two dimensions – the cup size and the body circumference around the rib cage. Implants are volumetrically sized in ccs or cubic centimeters. It takes approximately 200 cc to bring about a one full cup bra size increase. Because of differing bra styles and manufactures patterns the dimensions of a particular cup sizes are not necessarily uniform. Some women may prefer a tight and revealing cup while others desire full cup coverage. Plastic surgeons are therefore reluctant to predict a particular cup size after augmentation.

Do I want saline breast implants?

Saline Implants ( saltwater ) are popular because they are considered safe. In the event of leakage, the saltwater content will absorb naturally into the body. The change in volume will be immediately noticeable. These implants require only a small incision as the saltwater filling is added only after the implants are in position.
The implant volume can be adjusted a the time of surgery to balance any unevenness in the breasts. Saline Implants have a tendency to form ripples from the folding of the implant shell. Due to the fluid movement of saltwater, they may feel less natural than silicone implants. Saline implants are typically positioned beneath the muscle to soften and conceal the implant outline.

Should my implants be Sub muscular?

Placing implants behind the muscle (submuscular) will provide the additional coverage to conceal and soften the outline of the underlying implants. This is essential in small breasted women with thin tissues. This muscular coverage helps conceal the potential ripples and folds inherent in saline (saltwater) implants. However, muscle activation in athletic or muscular women can produce implant movement and contour changes.

Which breast implant shape is best?

Breast implants come in different shapes and contours. Low profile or moderate implants These implants are typically under filled to achieve a softer more pliable contour.
Medium Profile or moderate plus implants are designed to have greater height and firmness where increased projection is desired.
High profile implants afford maximum projection and shape retention but may appear somewhat round and projecting.

Loose and deflated breasts with minimal sag or ptosis are ideal candidates for breast implants. Simply restoring the breast to their original volume will give the immediate result. Whether from weight loss, breastfeeding, pregnancy or the aging process, breast implant can provide a return of the natural shape, projection, and fullness of the breasts.

Will Breast Implants help wide separated breasts?

The chest wall is not flat but cylindrically shaped with curved ribs and outwardly pointed breasts. A prominent breastbone (pigeon breast) will accentuate this outward effect while an indented or sunken breastbone ( pectus excavatum) will allow for deeper cleavage but with somewhat inwardly pointing breasts. Deviating from the natural contour lines of the breast by overly releasing the normal skin or muscle attachments at the midline can lead to less than desirable results. Implants must be centered under the nipple complex – positioning the implants closer to the center midline can result in outwardly pointing nipples. Overly thick breast and chest wall tissues will conceal the contour enhancements provided by implants, Thin skin and breast tissues will often require muscular coverage to pad and soften the breast outlines. Adding larger volume implants will not necessarily correct many cleavage issues.

How much cleavage will breast implants provide?

Cleavage after breast implants depend on many factors including, the structure and shape of the chest wall, the relative position of the nipples, the thickness of the surrounding breast tissues as well as the type and size of implants used. Women request maximum projection combined with the tight cleavage produced with push in bras or crossing one’s arms. If your breasts are widely separated, either from a broad or prominent breastbone ( sternum ) or outwardly positioned nipples this type of cleavage will be difficult to achieve. Altering the normal breast boundaries by sliding the implant closer together under the thin skin of the sternum can result in both palpable or visible rippling at the cleavage line.

Peri areolar Breast Augmentation

Breast implants  can be placed through an incision around the complex nipple margin. Areola with full coloration and texture offer a distinct border  to conceal potential incisions. This approach is commonly used with ptotic or sagging breasts. Note the incision scar at the inferior border of the areola.   Wimauma  Fl

Tubular Breasts are so called due to their “tube like “ appearance. The breasts have a narrow constricted base at the origin base at the chest wall with a tight skin envelope and sagging overhanging nipple areola complex. The breast tissues appear to be pushed forward and protrude into the nipple areolar complex. As a result, the areolar are often enlarged and asymmetric. The net effect is a drooping and limp barbell shaped breast a that sags and overhangs the natural breast folds and overhanging and downward projecting nipples. Nipples downward projection into the nipple. Correction requires expansion of the narrow base with the insertion of a wide based implant. A release of the prolapsed areolar breast tissue by performing incisions to relax and drop the breast and reduction of the enlarged areola or asymmetrical correction via a with periareolar or donut type mastopexy repair.

Trans-Axillary Breast Augmentation

Either saline or moderately sized silicone implants can be placed through a small underarm incision into a sub muscular pocket. This type of Augmentation Mammoplasty avoids any breast scars and allows for earlier breast message and activity.

The implants are situated beneath the muscle which helps to minimize any palpable or visible implant wrinkling and affords a natural contour and breast shape. Breast enhancement via a concealed underarm incision is particularly well suited for the women with little or no breast tissue and small or faintly colored areola. The lack of a natural breast fold or strong areola contrast makes incisions either beneath the breast or around the nipple complex difficult to conceal.
Typically there are two or three natural underarm creases or folds that can be utilized for trans-axillary breast augmentation. These incisions allow the breast implants to slide directly beneath the chest muscles without violating the breast gland. Often the musculature can be elevated and stretched to accommodate the implants limiting the need for muscular alteration.
