Types of Incisions for Breast Augmentation Miami
Infra mammary incision involves an incision below the infra mammary fold. The plastic surgeons prefer this procedure with silicone gel implants. This technique gives them direct access to the pectoral muscles.
The periareolar technique includes an incision around the border of the areola. This technique produces fewer scars and can be coupled with a breast lift.
Transaxillary involves an incision in the armpits. From that incision, the implants can be fed into the breast area. This technique produces a scarless breast augmentation. However, it does require some fine tuning.
What are Gummy Bear Implants?
Gummy bear implants, also known as cohesive gel implants and form stable. The name came after gummy bear candies. Because these implants are made of high-strength silicone gel. Since these implants are thicker, they have less probability to break than the traditional gel implants previously invented.
Gummy bear implants are said to hold their shape longer than saline implants. These implants have a distinct shape. Therefore the breast will conform to it and no the other way around. Saline implants will change its shape according to the breast shape and laws of gravity. Gummy bear implants will not fold or ripple and they don’t leak. Since these implants don’t shift in place, folds are less likely to occur. The filling is more solid than liquid, therefore, the chances for this to happen are less.
In the event a rupture and leak happen, the leak will not move. According to some studies, gummy bear implants have a low capsular contraction rate. Since there is less dispersal of silicone when compared to other fillers. Saline implants, on the other hand, are placed in the desired location before they are filled with a saline solution. Which is considered to be safer should the implant break. However, they look and feel less natural than gummy bear implants.
