Breast Implant Choices

Saline and silicone implants both have an outer silicone shell. The main difference lies the material used within the shell. Saline implants contain saline — a non-toxic, saltwater solution. While silicone implants come pre-filled with a cohesive silicone gel that mimics human fat.

Both types provide a uniform shape and feel. Saline implants are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 18 and older, while patients have to be at least 22 to have silicone implants Advantages and disadvantages to both will be discussed during your consultation. For instance, saline implants are often filled after placement and thus may require a smaller incision line. And while silicone/gel implants are somewhat more expensive, the gel feels a bit more like natural breast tissue. We like to use smooth round implants, as their softness make it possible to move with the breast pocket, giving it more natural movement and the roundness makes breasts appear fuller and there is less worry about them ever rotating out of place. Saline or gel, it is important for you to monitor your breast implants and not miss your checkups.

Different Breast Surgery Techniques

There are many different techniques to consider when planning your breast augmentation, including incision location.

Incisions are made in least visible areas to minimize scarring and their location is decided based on the type and size of implant, patient particular anatomy and patient and surgeon preference.

A widely used incision is made along the border of the areola (periareolar). This incision location provides easy access to the interior breast and results in very little scarring. The other incision patterns, like inframammary fold or axillary will be discussed in depth during your consultation with Torrance plastic surgeon Dr. Khattab.

Breast implants can be placed behind the breast tissue (subglandular) or behind both the breast tissue and the pectoral muscle (submuscular).Combination of both approaches often called dual plane can also be performed.

What to Expect During Your Breast Augmentation in Torrance, CA

Your breast augmentation consult: In order to determine if you are good candidate for breast augmentation, you will need to be upfront about every aspect of your health. Your consultation will include a physical examination, as well as a discussion of your medical history and cosmetic goals. This information will help Dr. Khattab determine what type of breast augmentation is the best and safest choice for you.

How the surgery works: Breast augmentation is most commonly performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Khattab will make the appropriate incision pattern. He will then create a pocket for your implant, which will be carefully inserted. Incisions will be secured and your chest wrapped in dressings and a surgical bra.

Recovering from breast augmentation: Helping you achieve a safe and speedy recovery is one of Dr. Khattab’s primary goals. You will notice some swelling and bruising but most patients report minimal discomfort. This can usually be controlled comfortably through a combination of pain medication and ice packs. Your stitches will be removed in about a week, allowing you to resume work and other non-strenuous activities. Exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for at least a month.

Expected Results: Your results won’t be apparent for several weeks. It will take time for swelling to resolve and for your breasts to settle into a natural looking position. It is important to note that you will have permanent scars following surgery. They will gradually fade and flatten over 12-18 months. Following a full recovery, you can anticipate fuller, shapelier breasts. Most women report experiencing increased self-esteem and body confidence.
