Discovering the Different Types of Breast Augmentation Procedures

Breast augmentation procedures have evolved significantly over the years, offering a variety of options to cater to individual needs and desires. From choosing the right implant size and shape to considering the placement and technique, understanding the different types of breast augmentation can empower you to make an informed decision. In this blog post, we will explore the various aspects of breast augmentation procedures, including implant placement techniques and surgical methods.

Placement Options:

Over the Muscle (Subglandular): In this placement technique, the breast implant is positioned above the pectoral muscle but under the breast tissue. This approach offers a shorter recovery period and may provide a more noticeable cleavage.

Submuscular (Partial or Complete): Here, the implant is placed partially or fully beneath the pectoral muscle. This method may provide a more natural appearance, reduce the risk of visible rippling.

Internal Bra Technique:

The Internal Bra technique involves using additional sutures or a mesh material to create support for the breast implants. This technique helps to address concerns such as weakened tissues. By providing additional support, the Internal Bra technique aims to achieve a longer-lasting and more aesthetically pleasing outcome.

No Touch Technique:

The No Touch technique is a surgical approach that minimizes contact between the implant and the surgeon’s gloves, instruments, and skin. This method aims to reduce the risk of infection and capsular contracture, a potential complication where scar tissue forms around the implant. The No Touch technique prioritizes maintaining a sterile environment during the entire surgical process.

Sharp Dissection:

Sharp Dissection refers to a surgical technique that uses precise incisions to create a pocket for the breast implant. The surgeon carefully separates tissue layers using sharp instruments before inserting the implant. This technique allows for better control over the pocket size and placement, resulting in more accurate positioning of the implant and potentially reducing the risk of complications.

Choosing the right breast augmentation procedure requires careful consideration of various factors, including implant placement techniques and surgical methods. Whether you opt for over the muscle (subglandular) or submuscular placement, consider the potential benefits of the Internal Bra technique, the No Touch technique, and sharp dissection. Consulting with a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon is crucial to understanding which options are best suited for your unique anatomy and desired outcome. Remember, thorough research and insightful discussions will help you select the ideal breast augmentation procedure to achieve the beautiful, confident results you desire.
