BREAST ENHANCEMENT WITH COHESIVE GEL IMPLANTS



What is Breast enhancement with cohesive gel implants?

It is also known as mammoplasty and is a surgical enhancement procedure to accentuate the size and shape of a woman's breasts. It is a tremendous help to women who desire a fuller profile, or who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy or nursing, or who have undergone breast reconstruction and want to gain a more natural look again.
Benefits : -
1. It can help improve the symmetry of the breasts
2. It can flat-chested people or those who are unsatisfied with their breast size
3. It can correct congenital deformities
4. It can restore the volume of breasts that has been lost due to pregnancy or breastfeeding

Approaches: -


1) Trans Axillary approach
Trans Axillary approach (Armpit incision) - With this approach, the breast transplants are implanted through an incision created in the armpits. These types of incisions are barely visible. To help create a pocket for the implant and accurately position the lit, an endoscope is used. This method can be used on a wide variety of patients. The patients can easily keep their surgery a secret by using this method

2) Periareolar approach (Areola incision)
The incision is made in the lower part of the areola to make it least visible. The surgeon can carefully plant the implant in location because it provides a direct view of the region. The surgeon can directly handle the breast tissue for better adaptation. However it may take longer to complete the procedure. This method is recommended for people with areola size of 2.5 cm or larger.

3) Infra Mammary Fold approach (Breast fold incision)
This method is commonly used in western countries. The incision is created at the bottom of the breast fold so that the scar can be hidden. This method requires less time for surgery and the patient can also recover quickly. However, a visible scar will remain under the lower part of the breast.



Implant location/Insertion : -
a. Sub-glandular insertion (Placement under the breast gland) - For people who already have enough existing breast tissue, this method is preferred. The most natural shape and texture can be attained by this method because the implants are inserted below the breast tissue. This method leaves ample cleavage and it is not affected by muscle movement.

b. Sub-muscular insertion (Placement under the muscle) -People with minimal breast tissue is suited for this method. The implant is concealed well because it is directly inserted below the muscle and breast tissue.

c. Sub-fascia insertion (Placement under the connective tissue of the muscle) - In this method the implant is placed under the connective tissue of the muscle. Due to this approach the implant is less likely to rotate and no asymmetry is formed when the muscles contract.
