Implants are placed in the chest region of women for enhancing their looks. This form of surgery can be used for correction of asymmetrical breast size too. Breast implant surgery can be of use in the case of saggy breasts too that have lost their tone due to age. When performed in combination with breast lift, it can serve to be of aid in adding breast volume in the right direction. This reassures a more rejuvenated bust line. Breast implant surgery can be the right option to go for in the occurrence of a traumatic accident that might have damaged some portion of the chest.
What material are breast implants are made of?
There are 2 variants of implants available for breast implant surgery. One would be saline and the other one would be silicone. The anatomical structure of both the kids of implants is the same. They differ in their composition of material only. While saline implants are composed of saline water the silicone implants are stuffed with silicone gel. The silicone implants are more long lasting and give a more natural feel. The only plus of saline implants that surpass them is of the pricing. Saline implants cost less than silicone implants. However, if any chance the implant shell of a saline implant snaps the saline may get passed into the body and the size of the implant would shrink. The saline that gets passed into the body is harmless. On the other hand, if a silicone implant ruptures, the shrinkage doesn’t become evident right away.
How are the breast implants placed?
Before the performance of the procedure the relation of the tissues to the overlying skin is established. For instance, how close are the chest muscles to the layer of tissue in the breast region would decide the path of the procedure. Breast implants can be placed in the chest by opting for any of the 3 following procedures:
- In the first kind of placement, the implant is placed in vicinity with the chest muscles and breast tissue.
- In the second kind of placement, the implant is placed in vicinity with the breast tissue but behind the layer of chest muscles partially.
- In the third kind of placement, the implant is placed completely under the cover of chest muscles.
The surgeon would decide the type of implant placement to go for based on the size of the saline or silicone implant and the amount of breast tissue available. The placement of incision in the specific region of chest is based on the kind of placement the surgeon would want to opt for after chest inspection.
