Before & After Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation involves the placement of a breast implant to increase the overall size of the breast mound in order to improve breast and body contour harmony. Achieving consistently superior results requires careful choice of implant style and size.
Three Considerations for Choosing the Ideal Implant
- The breast implant should sit on the inframammary crease. This is the crease that divides your breasts from your belly that actually supports the implant so that it does not fall down into your belly (called bottoming out). This is why the inframammary crease should never be released or violated. Once released, you will require a lifetime of breast augmentation revision surgeries to correct deformities such as malposition, double bubble, and/or bottoming out.
- The breast implant should be centered on your nipple and areola. If you consider factors 1 and 2 and think back to the geometry of a circle you will realize that the ideal implant must maintain a radius that equals your nipple to inframammary crease distance!
- Determining ideal implant size and style is dependent on the radius of your implant matching your inframammary crease to nipple position. What determines the ideal breast implant style is identifying the augmented volume desired and then matching the implant style that will give you the volume desired yet maintain the implant radius constraints as determined above. By utilizing the entire spectrum of implant styles and sizes, the ideal implant that achieves your augmentation goals yet fits your breasts like a custom fit shoe is possible.
