Breast Augmentation

Although breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures available and most people have a general understanding of what the procedure entails, you may be surprised by these 5 little known facts about Miami breast augmentation surgery.

There Are Two Different Implant Placement Techniques

Many patients are surprised to learn that breast implants can be placed above or below the muscle. Subglandular placement is a technique, which involves placing the implant above the pectoral muscle but under the breast tissue. This placement is advantageous because it can stop the breasts from drooping off the implant. However, to be eligible for this technique, it is necessary for women to have sufficient breast tissue to cover the implant.

Sagging can potentially happen sooner do to less support of implant. This placement can be ideal for extremely athletic individuals, like professional body builders. The submuscular placement is a technique in which the implant is inserted below the muscle, which adds additional coverage for the implant, ensuring that it is not seen or felt. This placement is ideal for thinner women who have very little existing breast tissue.

Silicone Implants Are More Expensive Than Saline Implants

While most patients are familiar with the two implant types – saline and silicone – they are often unaware of the cost difference between them. Silicone implants are more expensive than saline implants because silicone has a higher price point than saline, which is comprised of saltwater. Costs can also differ amounst types of silicone implants as well.

Although the cost is certainly an important factor to consider when undergoing a breast augmentation in Miami, it should not be the deciding factor. It is best to choose the most suitable implant type for your unique needs and goals in consultation with your plastic surgeon.

The Size Of Your Incision Will Depend On The Implant Type

Because saline implants can be inserted empty and filled with saline by the plastic surgeon once they are in place, they require a smaller incision than silicone implants, which are only available prefilled. Thus, although silicone implants tend to be the most popular implant type, many women opt for saline because they prefer to have smaller incisions, as they heal faster and are less likely to result in visible scarring. Ultimately, the decision between saline and silicone is a personal choice, as each material type has advantages and disadvantages.

Your Breasts Can Still Change With Implants

Over time, your breasts naturally change as a result of a number of factors such as weight fluctuations, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and aging. However, many patients are surprised to learn that these changes will still take place after a breast augmentation. Just like natural breasts, breasts with implants are susceptible to changes such as sagging, as the skin loses elasticity over time. However, a breast lift or mastopexy can be performed either on its own or in conjunction with your breast augmentation to lift and tighten the breasts.

A Miami Breast Augmentation Can Yield Natural Looking Results

Many people still associate breast implants with the obviously fake looking implants which were made popular in the 90s and consequently, assume that a breast augmentation can never appear natural. However, thanks to advancements in technology, it is now possible to attain incredibly natural looking results using breast implants, particularly when using the popular “gummy bear” implants made of cohesive silicone gel.
