Breast Augmentation, The Shape of Things to Come
Jonathan Britto and Raj Ragoowansi have been working with Glancey Medical for over 5 years, offering surgical procedures which complement our aesthetic treatments. With the wealth of experience they bring we can give our patients the very best advice and treatment options.
In this month’s Newsletter Jonathan discusses breast augmentation.
What’s new in breast augmentation?
The choices and opportunity for bespoke outcomes in breast augmentation have never been better! We have a wide range of excellent implant designs from the major implant companies who have a pedigree in the manufacture of safe products.
Breast augmentation with breast implants has been around since the late 1960s and has come of age – with better implants for a wider range of shapes, consistencies, and sizes! Medical grade silicon implants are available in a number of different gel–fill consistencies and textures which have improved the cosmetic results, for a more natural breast consistency, bounce, and ‘feel’. The problems of capsular contracture and the hard painful breast post–operatively are now all but historical – thankfully! It is rare nowadays for me to encounter a patient with a painful contracted implant and breast, the so–called ‘breast cripple’. On the rare occasion that this occurs because of historical problems with infection, or poor quality implants placed by less reputable providers, we have the choice to use polyurethane implants to salvage the situation for a comfortable and contoured natural result.
We can now choose from a variety of implant shapes, conical (yes really!), anatomical (tear drop shaped), or round implants with a range of widths, heights and projections. By careful assessment in the consultation, we can choose the right anatomical plane for surgery, make the correct hidden incision, and fashion exactly the right pocket for the chosen implant. This can allow breast uplift and augmentation via a small scar to throw the nipple complex forward and upwards for a natural projection. The result is a natural look for a comfortable breast and feminine shape.
What about alternatives to implants for breast enlargement? For the smaller breast, fat transfer has been a very valuable option – liposuction from those ‘love handles’ and breast uplift/augmentation at the same time!
There are many options in breast augmentation and uplift for the youthful breast, or the post pregnancy and breast feeding ‘slack’ breast. The choices and options for a natural result have never been better!!
