The Breast Implants Types are saline (salt-water) filled or they can be filled with a cohesive silicon gel which is approved by the FDA. The silicon gel implants have undergone extensive testing and leakage should be extremely rare. Even with the rare occurence of leakage, the Silicone gel is crosslinked to make it more cohesive and less likely to spread. When you are in our office for your consultation, you may stand on one of our samples to see how strong it is. Silicon gives a more natural feel than saline so the patient satisfaction is higher. However, most breast enhancement patients still desire the saline implants at this time because they can be placed through the smaller incisions, while the silicon implants need to be placed through the standard incision under the breast.
Inframammary incision - this is placed in the natural crease under the breast and is about one to one and a half inches long. This approach is easy and the incision usually heals to the point where it is almost invisible.
Areolar incision - an incision is made around part of the areola and nipple. After healing occurs the incision blends in well and is very difficult to see.
Axillary incision - a small incision is made under the muscle in each armpit. The breast implant is placed into the pocket created and the incision heals extremely well. This is another great way to perform breast augmentation with no incision on the breast at all.TUBA (trans umbilical breast augmentation) - a hidden incision in the belly button is used to place the implants so no scar is seen around the breast itself. This is a wonderful way to enhance the breasts with minimal evidence that a surgery was even performed.
Dual plane breast augmentation is a useful technique for patients who have only a minor amount of droopiness and do not want to go through a breast lift. In this procedure, the implant is placed partially beneath the muscle and partially beneath the breast tissue. This gives lift to the breast along with the fullness so a breast lift (and the incisions that go with it) is not needed.
The surgery is performed in our accredited surgery center in New Jersey or New York under IV sedation or general anesthesia. You will be discharged home the same day with a bandage and wrap in place. Some soreness, swelling, and bruising may occur, and muscle relaxants, pain killers, and antibiotics will be prescribed. The breasts will often appear too high to begin with, but will fall nicely into position in subsequent weeks. Patients can typically return to work in 10 days, with no strenuous activity for 2-3 weeks.
Breast augmentation is a very satisfying procedure and Dr. Cuber, Dr. Heller, and Dr. Sewell take the time to individualize each patient so the best procedure is done every time. So call our New Jersey office for a free consultation and our plastic surgeons we will be happy to discuss everything with you.
