Breast augmentation has helped thousands of Montreal women achieve their ideal physique, but many people still have the misconception that breast implants rarely look natural after the augmentation process is complete. In this article, we’ll look at the techniques that board-certified plastic surgeons, like myself, use to ensure breast implants look as natural as possible on every patient.
1. Measuring the Body and the Implant Size
To help ensure the optimal balance between the size of the implant and the size of the patient, surgeons measure patients closely before their procedure. They can also help guide patients in making a decision about the various implant sizing options available to them, based on their unique physiques.
An advantage of the latest scanning technology is that surgeons can now take a picture of the patient before the procedure and show them the potential result with implants of various sizes. This process empowers patients in selecting the right implant.
2. Harnessing Surgical Techniques
The development of new surgical techniques is helping specialists improve the appearance of their breast implant work. Now, many specialists place the implant under the pectoralis major muscle in the chest. This helps to increase the amount of natural tissue covering the implant and prevents the rippling that can be seen in some patients who have had breast augmentation surgery.
3. Use of Silicone Over Saline
Another way that surgeons can increase the likelihood that breasts look natural after augmentation is through the use of silicone rather than saline implants. In addition to helping ensure the breast looks better, silicone ensures the breast also feels more natural as well. Another advantage of silicone breast implants is that, unlike saline, they cannot leak and won’t deflate over time.
4. Using the Natural Breast Tissue
Using patients’ existing breast tissue is another way that surgeons can help provide natural results. For patients with a large amount of breast tissue to shape, the use of this tissue can minimize the need for a larger implant.
Professionals throughout the breast augmentation field are always developing and utilizing new techniques to achieve outstanding results within their work.
