What are the types of breast implants?

Silicone Implants
Silicone is the most popular material for breast implants because it mimics the weight, feels, and texture of natural breast tissues. They’re available in numerous widths, profiles, and sizes, so you must select the ideal implant size before the procedure. Dr. Boustany will help you visualize how the implants will look on your body before you proceed.

Saline Implants
Saline doesn’t accurately resemble the texture and weight of natural breast tissues, but some women choose them because of personal preferences. Silicone implant shells are available in numerous sizes, but they’re inserted empty into the breast pocket, following which they’re filled with saline water. This gives you more flexibility with the size. If there’s a leak, the saline water simply gets absorbed by the body without any problems.

What are the implant placement options?

Submuscular Placement

Submuscular placement is the surgical technique wherein the breast implant is placed underneath the chest muscles. This is suitable for women with very little breast tissue, and it looks and feels completely natural. However, the submuscular placement involves a longer recovery period.

Subglandular Placement

Subglandular placement is the surgical technique wherein the breast implant is placed underneath the natural breast tissues and above the chest muscles. This technique is more suitable for women with more natural breast tissues, and it involves less post-treatment recovery than submuscular placement.

Breast Augmentation FAQs

How is breast augmentation surgery performed?

Breast augmentation surgery typically involves making incisions, inserting implants behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscle, and closing the incisions. The specific techniques used vary, depending on the type of implants used and the location of the incision. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting.

How long do breast implants last?

Breast implants aren’t lifetime devices. While they can last for many years, eventual replacement may be necessary. The lifespan varies among individuals, but many implants are designed to last at least a decade or longer.

Can breast augmentation correct asymmetry?

Yes, breast augmentation can address breast asymmetry by using different-sized implants or adjusting the placement to achieve more balanced proportions. The procedure can enhance symmetry and improve overall breast appearance.

Will breast augmentation affect breastfeeding?

While many women successfully breastfeed after augmentation, there’s a risk of decreased milk supply or changes in nipple sensation. Dr. Boustany will discuss your expectations and curate a surgical plan accordingly.
