BREAST IMPLANT TYPES
Breast implants available for breast enlargement surgery include saline-filled or cohesive silicone-gel filled. Breast implants are manufactured in round and teardrop shapes. The one that is best for you will depend on your shape and on your cosmetic goals.
Saline implants have a silicone outer shell filled with a medical-grade saline solution. During the enlargement, we fill the breast implant through a valve. This allows us to achieve a custom result to meet your cosmetic needs.
COHESIVE SILICONE GEL-FILLED
Cohesive silicone gel-filled breast implants are the preferred choice in implants across Sydney and Australia. The consistency of the silicone reduced the risks of postoperative leakage problems. These implants generally feel softer to the touch and more like natural breasts than saline implants.
SIZE, SHAPES AND FORMS
Your body shape and personal preferences are the key deciding factors when it comes to selecting the best breast implant size for your enhancement surgery. During your consultation with us, your desired breast enhancement size will be discussed. It can be very helpful to view before and after images of our previous patients. This can help you to understand the enlargement shape that may be right for you.
Breast implants are generally offered in two forms: round or teardrop (anatomical) shaped.
Round, depending on their fill, offer a defined round shape or assume more of a teardrop form when the patient is upright. They tend to provide more upper half breast fullness than anatomical implants.
Anatomical implants (teardrop) demand a greater degree of accuracy in positioning during the enlargement procedure. If they shift after enhancement surgery, the shape may be distorted.
Anatomical breast implants can provide greater projection in proportion to the size of the base, making them particularly suitable for women with little natural tissue or those who desire a lift – particularly in reconstructive circumstances.
BREAST AUGMENTATION INCISION SITES
Our preferred incision methods for breast enlargement are inframammary and transaxillary. They offer more predictable results with better exposure and placement of the implant when compared to other incision types.
The inframammary incision allows the breast implant to be placed in a precise pocket formation. This also offers more control for bleeding.
The transaxillary incision is made in the natural crease of the armpit. A channel is fashioned down to the breast. The scar is virtually invisible in the armpit fold and lack of tension generally makes for more straightforward healing.
