Breast implants

Breast implants: how to shape your breasts?

Object of all covetousness, breasts are nowadays everywhere. Whether selling perfume, clothing or even a car, they have never been so much in evidence. No wonder, because when they are round and well designed, they are the symbol of femininity and seduction.

However, sometimes they lack volume, are flatter or even droopy. In some women, this can lead to embarrassment and complexity. Thus, breast surgery today makes it possible to rectify your breasts thanks to the installation of breast implants.

Breast Implants: What is it?

Breast implants are prostheses that increase the volume of the breasts. It is most often a cosmetic surgery operation and thus makes it possible to reshape the neckline and the shape of the breasts. However, in some cases, the placement of implants can correct a malformation or asymmetry of the breast.

Today there are several types of implants depending on the liquid they contain and their outer shell.

Two different substances are used to reproduce the texture of the breasts:

  • Silicone gel implants: their shape remains stable and returns to its initial shape even after moderate pressure. In addition, its consistency is less fluid, limiting the risk of spreading the gel in the event of rupture of the envelope.
  • Saline implants: these implants are, today, very rarely used by surgeons. Indeed, they give an unnatural appearance to the chest. The breast then has a liquid appearance and folds visible under the skin may appear.

The composition of the envelope of breast implants is also very important. Silicone elastomer shells make it easier to fit your implants and guarantee their solidity.

Breast implants: How the procedure is carried out

Before the operation

Your surgeon will see you during an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for him/her to learn more about your needs, expectations and history. He will also be able to see if you have any contraindications to this operation. Finally, it will allow him to choose the breast implants according to the desired volume and the expected effect.

During the operation

During the operation, the surgeon performs several steps that will allow him to give you an optimal result:

  • He makes skin incisions by areolar, axillary or sub-mammary routes.
  • He then places the prosthesis in different positions depending on the desired result: under the mammary gland, under the pectoral muscle or in Dual Plan.
  • Once the breast implants have been placed, he sutures the incisions.
  • Finally, he places a shaping bandage with an elastic bandage.

Breast implants: anesthesia, duration, hospitalization

The duration of a breast prosthesis placement is 1 to 2 hours depending on the technique used by your surgeon.

A general anaesthetic is necessary to have this procedure. An overnight hospital stay is required, so you will go home the day after the operation.

The results

The results of a breast implant placement are visible immediately. However, you will have to wait two or three months for the final results to appear, while the swelling and bruising subside.

The quality of the result will depend on the elasticity of your skin. Similarly, breasts will suffer the effects of aging just like natural breasts.
