- Weight fluctuations
Types of Breast Surgeries
Breast lift (Mastopexy) - A mastopexy, or breast lift can be performed on its own or in conjunction with a breast implants or breast reduction.
As we age or after childbirth, breasts begin to sag and the areolas become larger.
A small lift may only be needed, leaving a scar which just surrounds the areola. Surgery that requires larger amounts of excess breast skin usually require some form of anchor-shaped scar, which is similar to that of a breast reduction. The surgery can be performed without enlarging the breast, or even reducing the size, if this is what is preferred.
The surgery is carried out under general anesthetic, and an overnight stay is required.
Surgical markings will outline the area of skin that needs to be removed and for nipple re-positioning, then Anchor incisions follow. The amount of lift needed will establish the number and length of the incisions required.
The Anchor Incision technique has three incisions and is typically used by our surgeons:
- The first incision is placed around the areola, continuing above it and creating the nipple’s new position
- The second incision runs vertically from the nipple extending down to the bottom of the breast
- The underside of the breast is where the third incision is made, just above the fold under the breast.
A skin flap is created by these incisions, where excess skin will be removed The breast is reformed, by bringing the skin together above the nipple. The nipple and areola continues to stay connected to the underlying breast tissue and the associated nerve and blood supply, reducing the chance of sensation loss. Breasts are firmer and higher, post surgery.
To finish off sutures close the incisions, giving the breast its new contour. Sutures are typically positioned around the areola, below, and in the crease under the breast. Those woman who have realistic expectations, generally find great satisfaction from this procedure.
If a breast implant is combined with the breast lift, it will be placed in a pocket under, partially or completely under the pectoral muscle.
Breast reduction with lift – Many women seek breast reduction surgery because of oversized breasts, a condition, medically known as breast hypertrophy. This typically happens with both breasts and occurs at puberty or soon afterward. Over enlargement of breasts sometimes occurs during pregnancy and occasionally this enlargement continues. Although rare, the sudden onset of breast enlargement does occur. Women often decide to do this to relieve the physical symptoms caused by extremely heavy breasts, including back pain, neck pain and skin irritation.
The procedure incorporates the reduction of breast tissue, fat and skin, making them smaller, lighter and firmer. There is also the option of reducing the size of the areola; the darker skin surrounding the nipple. Surgical incisions are similar to a breast lift; except in this procedure, implants may not be necessary. It takes several months for the breasts to settle and the shape changes slightly as it takes on a more rounded appearance. The surgical scars fade over time.
Your surgeon will examine you and advise you what procedure is best in your case, swell as giving you all the information about the surgery.
Please refer to the information above in Breast enlargement for details about the pre and post procedures.
Liposuction to the stomach or hips is frequently carried out with a breast reduction to give a more balanced proportion. You can enquire and receive a quote from us.
Breast enlargement (Augmentation) – Breast augmentation is usually done to enhance the size or shape of breasts or to balance a difference in breast size. This procedure is carried out under a general anesthetic, requiring an overnight stay. Depending on your preference and recommendations made by the surgeon depends where the implants are placed. It’s performed by inserting an implant behind, in front the breast tissue, or above the breast muscle. There are advantages for each position; the surgeon will discuss these thoroughly during your consultation. Implants come in a variety of designs, shapes and sizes and in a range of materials. This can be placed in different positions through a variety of incision locations. The goal is to leave your breasts looking as natural as possible, while enlarging them to your preferred size.
A breast lift and breast augmentation be performed at the same time, this is most frequently recommended to treat the sagging appearance that can result from pregnancy or aging. Throughout this combined procedure, some breast tissue is removed, the breast skin is tightened and lifted, and an implant is inserted.
Scars are inconspicuous with the incisions that are made under the breast, around the nipple, or in the armpit. A pocket is created with each implant when the breast tissue and the skin are being lifted.
The breast implant can be inserted directly under the breast tissue, partially or completely underneath the pectoral muscle.
The breasts appear fuller and more natural in tone and contour after surgery, and the scars will fade with time.
Breast implants – The surgery is carried out under general anesthetic, and requires an overnight stay. Where the implants are placed depends on your preferences and the surgeon’s recommendations. Our surgeons typically place implants beneath the breast tissue; although implants can be placed behind, or in front of the pectoral muscle. There are advantages for each position, which your surgeon will discuss thoroughly with you during your consultation.
For your benefit, we shall describe the different incisions and implant placements in brief:
The 3 positions for implant placement:
- Above the pectoral muscles (sub-glandular)
- Partially behind the muscles (partial sub-muscular)
- Completely behind the muscles (complete sub-muscular)
Please read the preconditions and risks page before embarking on any surgery.
There are 4 types of incisions for implants:
- Under the breast (inframammary incision)
- Around the nipple (peri-areolar incision)
- In the arm pit (transaxillary incision)
- In the navel area (trans-umbilical or TUBA incision)
Under the breast (inframammary incision)
The inframammary incision is placed in the vicinity of the crease (the inframammary fold) where the breast and chest come together.
The inframammary incision is achieved by the surgeon selecting the optimum location to place the incision— which is under the breast and close to the inframammary fold. The incision is made creating a pocket in which to place the breast implant. The implant is slid upward through the incision, and then centered behind the nipple.
The incision is located to secure proper placement of the implant, but also to reduce scar visibility. Scarring from properly located inframammary incisions should be easily hidden under a swimsuit top. The advantages of this incision type is that implants may be placed in all three locations – above, partially behind or completely behind the pectoral muscle.
Around the nipple (peri-areolar incision)
To perform the peri-areolar incision, the surgeon makes an incision at the edge of the areola. The goal of the incision is to place it in the transition area between the dark areola and surrounding breast skin where it can be hidden.
After the incision, the surgeon creates a pocket for the breast implant and then slides the implant through the incision into the breast pocket. Once inserted, the implant is then centered behind the nipple.
One possible advantage of the peri-areola surgery is that there may be no visible scar, because of the color and texture characteristics of the areola border. In some cases, a scar may be visible. Another advantage, as with the inframammary incision, this incision allows the implant to be placed in precise pocket formation and provides for absolute controlled bleeding.
In the arm pit (transaxillary incision)
The transaxillary incision is made in the natural folds of the armpit tissue, then a channel is created up to the breast. This procedure is sometimes performed with an endoscope, or a small tube with a surgical light and camera embedded in the end, to provide visibility through the channel. The implant is inserted and moved through the channel, then positioned and centered behind the nipple.
The biggest advantage of this incision type is that the scar is not at the breast and can accommodate all three types of implant placement.
In the navel area (trans-umbilical or TUBA incision)
The TUBA incision is made on the rim of the navel. A tunnel is then made under the skin through the subcutaneous fat layer. An endoscope can be used to create the tunnel and to provide visibility to the surgeon. An endoscope is a thin tube with a camera and surgical light embedded on the end. The tunnel reaches all the way behind the breast into the layer of loose tissue between the breast and pectoral muscles. After a pocket is created in the breast, the implant is inserted through the incision and moved up into the breast area. The implant is then centered behind the nipple. Like the transaxillary incision, the TUBA incision does not leave any scars on the breast; and supports all three implant placement positions.
Implant Placement Positions:
Above the pectoral muscles (sub-glandular)
This position places the implant behind the breast, but in front of the muscles and tissues that line the front of the ribs and chest wall. The fatty tissue in the breast is what gives the breast a soft consistency. This tissue extends throughout the breasts, surrounding the glands and fibrous tissues.
Partially behind the muscles (partial sub-muscular)
In partial sub-muscular implant placement, the implant is placed behind the breast tissue and partially under the pectoral and other chest muscles. During the procedure, the lowest part of the Pectoralis Major muscle is cut so that the upper part of the implant sits deeply beneath the muscle, but the lower part sits beneath the breast (subglandular).
Completely behind the muscles (complete sub-muscular)
In full sub-muscular implant placement, the implant is placed completely under the pectoral muscles. Some surgeons believe that this position reduces the potential of capsular contracture, and may also interfere less with breast examination by mammogram than if the implant is placed directly behind the breast tissue. Placement behind the muscle however, may be more painful for a few days after surgery than placement directly under the breast tissue.
The most popular implants are silicone, which have been successfully used in many types of implants for many decades. The advantage of silicone is that they feel more natural, and have a lower tendency to ripple. Fears that people had about silicone leading to breast cancer and connective diseases has been disproved. Silicone has developed a great deal to be completely safe, and The European Committee on Quality Assurance and Medical Devices in Plastic Surgery (EQUAM) published the research results and stated that there is no proof that silicone implants cause any diseases. In fact, women get more silicone from their lipstick or daily beauty creams than their breast implants.
Saline implants comprise of weak salt solution similar to body fluids. The advantage is that they can fit through a smaller incision, but the disadvantage is – because they are made of water – they can ripple and feel ‘squishy’.
Shape and size
There are different types of implant – varying in shape and consistency. They can be rounded in shape or anatomical/tear-drop shape. The silicone can be softer or firmer according to your requirements. The surgeon will assess you and guide you as to which one is best for your requirements.
