Choices and Techniques

This includes type of implant, method of incision and insertion, placement of the implant, and the shape and size of the implant. Because each patient’s body is different, consideration of each patient’s proportions will give optimal results.

Newport Beach Breast Augmentation – Types of Implants

First, you should consider the type of implant: saline or silicone. Both types are FDA-approved, but saline implants are a more popular choice. They enable the plastic surgeon to create a shorter scar and pose fewer complications from leaks and ruptures. Silicone has some advantages, notably resulting in less rippling or visible edges, and are lighter while feeling more natural. However, they are more likely to result in capsular contracture and require a larger incision.

Types of Incisions for Breast Augmentation

An areola incision requires a small cut beneath the nipple. An inframammary incision is made underneath the breast where it meets the chest. Your choice of incision depends on the type of implant you choose, and some offer less visible scarring than others.

Finally, you must choose where precisely to have your implants placed. Sub-glandular placement is above the pectoral muscle but below the mammary gland. Sub-pectoral placement is beneath the pectoralis major muscle. Sub-muscular placement takes sub-pectoral placement a bit further by placing the implant beneath other chest muscles by the lower portion of the implant.
