A breast augmentation is the general term for the change in breast size, shape, and projection of the breasts. Implants and enlargements are done by surgically inserting an implant that is filled either with silicone or with saline (salt water); breast implants come in an array of shapes and sizes.
Why do Women desire to have a Breast Augmentation or Implant?
Women have many reasons as to why they want or desire to have their breasts augmented, but one common complaint we hear from the women who come to the Plastic Surgery Institute Miami is that they feel their breasts are not in proportion to the rest of their body. Their desire lies in wanting to fill out a swimsuit or a strapless dress, or even just to have more ample cleavage in order to boost their confidence levels and feel more desirable.
What Procedures are used to complete a Breast Augmentation or Implantation?
Prior to beginning anesthetic medication will be provided for your comfort during the surgery. The choices include intravenous sedation or a general anesthesia. Your surgeon will recommend the best option for you.
Incisions for breast implants are made in inconspicuous areas in order to minimize the visibility of scarring. We will discuss which incision options are most appropriate for your desired outcome there are three available options:
- Periareolar incisions are made under the areola.
- Inframammary incisions are made under the breast along the curve.
- Transaxillary incisions are made near the underarm and away from the breasts.
Of course, the type of incision made will be chosen based on a variety of factors such as, the type of breast implant, the degree of enlargement, the anatomy of the patient, as well as a patient-surgeon preference.
After the incision is made, the breast implant is interested into a pocket that is either located under the pectoral muscle (this is a submuscular placement) or immediately behind the breast tissue, which sits over the pectoral muscle (a submammary / subglandular placement).
The type of placement, much like the type of incision is based upon the same factors.
Pocket incisions are closed with layers of sutures in the breast tissue and the skin is closed with sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape. Over time, the lines of incision will fade.
Are There Age Limits to Breast Implants in Miami?
Many women become interested in having a breast augmentation done when they have sagging or asymmetrical breasts because of aging or pregnancy. Other women may not be comfortable to with their breasts for many reasons, such as shape, size, or texture (feel) of their breasts. While some may need breast reconstruction after a variety of reasons such as injuries or mastectomies. Florida state law states, women over the age of eighteen may obtain saline breast implants, while women age twenty-two or older may have silicone implants.
