The Advanced Liposuction Center in Cranberry Township, PA can help you feel better about your breasts and your body. Highly customizable breast implants allow you to increase breast size, improve shape, and alter nipple position.

Adding to breast volume is by far the most common goal of breast implants and enhancement procedures. Breast shape and symmetry, however, are perhaps just as important. In the minds of many patients, the ideal breast is full at its upper pole, gently sloping towards the lower pole. The nipples points slightly upwards, and the breast itself is firm with little visible sagging. In short, this describes many of the characteristics found in young adult women.

Unfortunately, gravity, pregnancy, weight loss, and the passage of time can alter this aesthetic. The skin and breast tissue become stretched out, resulting in a sagging, deflated look. For many women, a pronounced loss of volume also occurs. With proper augmentation using modern breast implants much of this is permanently reversible. Saline implants not only restore lost volume but restore (and even improve) shape as well.

Attaining the ideal, natural “beaconing breasts” described above is possible in many cases. Almost any desired size is easily achievable, as is perfect symmetry. All of this is made possible using customized implants specifically shaped for each individual patient.

Saline or Silicone: which type of breast implants is right for you?

This depends largely on what you want to achieve. Silicone is noted for its very realistic feel. It closely matches the firmness and density of natural breast tissue, yet is somewhat stiffer than saline. Implants made of Silicone lend themselves to a very natural look and a realistic feel. They have soft edges which blend easily into existing tissue, and are indeed in wide use today. This being said, they’re probably not the best choice for a large increase in size.

In all fairness, saline implants share many of the above characteristics. While older generations of saline implants could certainly achieve a realistic look, they were infamous for not moving or feeling natural. The results were often seen as overly firm. An artificial “ripple effect” was also sometimes noticeable when the breasts moved. Today, these problems have been largely solved. Saline implants have prove

A Question of Location. Under the Pectoral Muscles or Under the Mammary Glands?

This is an important question, and again there is is no right or wrong answer. It all depends on the thickness of the breast tissue that will cover the implant.

In cases where the overlying tissue is thin, as seen in smaller breasts, it’s best to place the implants below the muscular layer.

Where the breast implants are inserted all depends on the thickness of the tissue overlying the implant. If it is thin, insertion should be under the muscle. If it is thick, it could be under the mammary gland or under the muscle. This is determined based on the shape of the chest and patient’s desires. Furthermore, a third technique, which is the dual plane technique, places the implant under the gland and under the muscle. This provides the implantation with a combination of benefits from both techniques. Advanced Liposuction Center and  Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center most frequently utilizes the dual plane technique for implantation. See Dr Giraldos Gallery for actual patient outcomes.

Breast Augmentation Initial Examination

The initial consultation for breast augmentation is very similar to those of other cosmetic procedures. Your doctor will take a complete health history, including review of medications. A physical exam is then performed, allowing your doctor to determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for this type of procedure. Your breasts will be measured, noting their shape and nipple position. Special attention is paid to any side-to-side asymmetry.

At this point you’ll have an in-depth discussion about the benefits—and potential risks—of breast augmentation. If there are any alternative procedures, your surgeon is obligated to review these with you. Finally, you’ll go over particular aspects of your breasts you’d like to improve upon. This can include size, shape, firmness, and nipple position. Anonymous before and after pictures are almost always used as an aid. This also give you an added opportunity to review the surgeon’s work.

Part of this is setting realistic expectations, which is incredibly important. Most people are thrilled with how they look after their cosmetic procedure. When this isn’t the case, it’s often because the results didn’t live up to the patient’s unrealistic expectations.

Only after all of this has been accomplished can a concrete treatment plan can be drawn up. An appointment time is then set and you’re that much closer to having the breasts you truly want. If you have any questions in the intervening time, don’t hesitate to call the office.

Breast Implant Size

Best Breast Implants

Breast size is probably the number one concern potential augmentation patients have. This is an incredibly personal choice. Today’s implants come in a large range of shapes and sizes, providing you and your surgeon with a wide variety of options. Ultimately it’s a matter of matching up your image of an ideal breast with the appropriate implant. Based on the height and width of your breasts, your surgeon can advise you on which implants will best fill you your chest. The choice, however, is completely your own. Many women want to achieve a well-proportioned, natural final look. Others adopt a more “go big or go home” attitude. There’s no right or wrong answer.

Implants Characteristics

Modern implants are essentially made to order. You choose the size, then the implants are filled with the appropriate volume of sterile saline solution. It’s the same fluid used for intravenous hydration. In many cases, one implant will receive slightly more solution in order to correct for asymmetry. These implants are smooth and have a similar firmness to natural breast tissue. Once positioned, they move naturally with much less of a “ripple” effect than previous generations of implants.

Breast Implant Position

Our Surgeon prefers that your implants will be placed directly behind your chest muscles (pectoralis major). This allows the implants to push your existing breast tissue forward, adding to a more natural look and feel. This also gets around the problem of visible edges. Additionally, this positioning also ensures very little interference with breast feeding and mammography.

Breast Implant Surgery

Today, breast implantation is very minimally invasive and boasts short recovery times. This type of procedure is performed in an outpatient setting, and typically takes about 1-2 hours. It requires only light sedation and local anesthesia, which is a much safer alternative to general anesthesia. In most cases, procedures are done in surgical suites located right inside your surgeon’s office.
