Does the use high-profile or moderate-profile implants for sagging breasts prevent having to do a breast lift?
Why should you underfill or overfill saline implants?
In general one should never underfill a saline implant because there is a higher chance of having a deflation or rupture. However if you want the fake, round porn star look overfilling is the answer. Optimally should fill the implant for the designed volume so that it will get less scalping and no rippling and the breast implant is associated with less implant rupture.
How do you prevent rippling in breast implants?
muscle. The muscle acts like additional padding and more likely cover up any breast implant wrinkling. However there is no muscle coverage in the lower
outer quadrant of the breast. Fortunately bathing suits and bras cover this area.
maximally fill it and not overfill or underfill, as that can cause more scalping or rippling. If you underfill, it has a increased rate of deflation in saline breast
Why do you have to replace a ruptured silicone gel implant?
Why do you put breast implants below the muscle?
There is significant medical evidence demonstrating that breast implants have less chance for internal scarring (capsular contracture), look more natural and feel better if placed below the muscle. Most plastic surgeons feel that the breasts have a higher likelihood of staying softer longer when placed below the muscle. Likewise implants are separated from the milk producing glands, easier to examine the breasts and when mammograms are done the muscle is a natural separation plane between the muscle, the implant and breast tissue allowing the radiologist a better view of the breast tissue.
Would I be able to get a breast augmentation now and in a year or so go forward with a lift?
Nothing substitutes for a personal evaluation, a review of your medical history/medications and a face to face discussion of your options.
Unfortunately with out a exam of your tissues I can can only comment based solely your photos. However, hopefully you will find them helpful.
The timing of when to perform a mastopexy is entirely dependant on the patients needs, wants and desires. Having a breast augmentation does preclude a a future mastopexy.
Mastopexy following a breast augmentation is often done following:
1. massive weight loss
3. Borderline pre augmentation need for a mastopexy
4. Large implant placement and normal resulting sag (ptosis)
I recommend that you schedule several consultative appointments with Plastic Surgeons who are experienced and Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. In addition ideally a members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (denoting by membership as having met additional criteria and a focus on Cosmetic Plastic Surgery).
