05 Sep An Overview of Breast Implants
A breast implant is used in breast augmentation. They may be used during breast reconstruction following a mastectomy, where the implant replaces the breast tissue which has been removed due to cancer.
Getting breast implants is an important, expensive decision and should be discussed with a board certified plastic surgeon who can provide you with detailed information about topics pertaining to breast implants, such as:
Breast Implant Filters: the two most commonly used options are saline or silicone.
Breast Implant Size: How big your implants should be is a crucial factor in your decision-making process.
Incision Location: your surgeon will provide you with a breast implant surgery plan which includes where they will make the incision to insert the implant.
Breast Implant Placement: During surgery the doctors makes a space for the implants (called “pockets”) behind the breast tissue and above the muscle (sub-glandular) or behind both the breast tissue and the pectoralis major muscle (sub-muscular).
