What are breast implants?
A breast implant is a clinical prosthesis that is put inside the breast to enlarge, reproduce, or make the physical type of the breast.
Two types of implants
Silicone gel filled which are commonly used in India
Saline filled implants which are available in USA
Breast enlargement is a kind of surgical procedure, so patients need to think cautiously before choosing the procedure.
Prior to the procedure, the Plastic Surgeon should enable the patient to pick the size of the implant that is required. This might be done by measurements of the chest wall and cup sizes of the bra or by placing distinctive measured inserts into a bra, to perceive how they feel.
Operation can be done under General Anesthesia or Regional Anesthesia like thoraic epidural
The Plastic Surgeon needs to discuss the placement of incisions for implant placement with the client before the procedure.
• Inframammary cut, done in the wrinkle under the breast, most common approach
• Transaxillary cut, in the armpit
• Periareolar cut, around the areola
The decision of cut relies upon a few components, including how much augmentation is included, the patient’s lifestyle, the type of implant, and the experience of the operating plastic surgeon.
A pocket is created behind the breast either in front of the muscle or behind the muscle and the implant is inserted carefully after securing meticulous hemostasis ( bloodless pocket)
The incision is closed in layers with sutures and skin tapes for better scar formation
Over a period of time the scars will go unnoticed
The result are evident immediately after surgery
Postoperative discomfort for 2 to 7 days will be noticed
Reported complications, though very infrequent are
Infection and capsular contraction
Scars may sometimes become hypertrophic
