Breast Augmentation refers to surgical procedures for enhancing breast size, shape and projection (how the breast stands out from the chest wall), using 1 of 3 types of incisions:
Periareolar incision. An incision is made at the lower edge of the areola (darkly pigmented skin surrounding the nipple. A pocket is formed for an implant, and the implant inserted. A scar is visible at the border of the areola, but it fades and is unobtrusive.
Inframammary incision. An incision is made at the base of the breast where it meets the torso. A pocket is created and the implant inserted. There is a scar but it may not be visible in the fold between the breast and torso.
Transaxillary incision. This is the most technologically advanced approach to placing an implant and leaves no scar on the breast. The pocket is made using tiny high definition cameras and the surgery is performed on large high definition TV screens. This allows the implant to be placed very precisely through a small incision in the underarm that is nearly invisible within several months.
Breast implants are saline or silicone filled devices used to enhance breast size, shape, and projection (how far away from the chest wall the breast protrudes). They consist of an outer shell made from silicone, filled with either saline (water with sodium chloride at the same concentration as natural body fluid), or or the cohesive gel silicone, for volume and density. Both saline and silicone implants have been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Breast Implant Exchange is a surgical procedure refers to removing a previous implant, and replacing it with a new implant.
Indications for breast implant exchange include:
Ruptured Breast Implant. The implant shell ruptures (breaks), leaking the implant contents into the pocket in which the implant was inserted.
Breast lift is the surgical procedure for altering the breast shape and position on the chest wall (profile) to create a more youthful configuration and appearance by tightening the skin envelope of the breast.
Indications for the procedure include:
With a small breast volume, a mastopexy may be combined with breast augmentation = augmentation with breast lift.
The type of lift a patient needs is based on how much extra skin they have. the more skin that is present, the larger and more scars a patient needs to achieve an optimal result.
This breast lift is the surgical procedure for women with enlarged areolas (darkly pigmented skin surrounding the nipple). An incision is made around the areola to reduce its size to a diameter of 38-40 millimeters and the excess skin is removed.
Also called a lollipop lift, consists of an incision made around the areola, then downward to the breast crease (where the breast meets the torso). Excess skin is removed and deep layers of breast tissue are sutured together to reshape the breast. The areola is repositioned for the desired youthful appearance.This technique works well for a patient that has a small to moderate amount of excess skin.
An inverted T shaped incision around the nipple and down the middle of the breast and horizontally along the base. THis procedure is for a patient that has a significant amount of droop and extra skin. Deep layers of breast tissue are sutured together, excess skin is removed, and the areola repositioned higher appropriately.
Breast Reduction is performed to alleviate the chronic strain and pain on the back and shoulders caused by very large, heavy breasts. An anchor-shaped incision is made around the nipple, down to and along the crease where the breast meets the torso. Glandular tissue, fat and skin are removed. The nipple and areola are repositioned to a higher position. this is essentially the same procedure as a breast lift but breast tissue isremoved to reduce the excessive weight of the breast.
Transaxillary Breast Augmentation uses an incision 1-2 centimeters in length and is made in a natural crease of the armpit (axilla). Breast implants (saline or silicone) of the appropriate size are inserted, positioned correctly, and anchored, all through the small incision in the underarm. The muscle and breast remain intact without a breast scar, and preserving nipple sensation better than augmentation performed with an incision on the breast which can leave an unsightly scar on the breast.
