What is a breast implant?

The breast implant is a prosthesis that is used to surgically change both the size and contour of the female breast. On the one hand, the breast implant is used in reconstructive plastic surgery; the prosthesis should restore the natural breast shape after the removal of the mammary gland and possibly the large pectoral muscle.

On the other hand, and for the most part, implants are used in aesthetic surgery to enhance the appearance of the breast.

Procedure

There are 2 different types of breast implants: salt-filled breast implants and silicone implants. The doctor and patient select the shape and size of the implant in the course of a detailed consultation to achieve the perfect result through the operation.

Depending on the patient, the implant is placed via an incision at one of the different access paths and then placed in a suitable position of the pectoral muscle.

The average recovery time is 6 weeks. During this time, attention should be paid to physical already. Lifting and carrying heavy loads and sport are obsolete. It is recommended to wear a sports bra for at least 6 weeks. Wound healing in the area of the incision should be completed after 14 days; after that, scar massage can be started. Declining measures such as lymphatic drainage support the healing process positively.

The mammary gland is an apocrine gland that produces milk for the diet of infants; each breast has a wart atrium (Areola) with a nipple (nipple). Together we speak of the Nipple Arela complex (NAC). The milk ducts flow into the nipple from the mammary gland, through which the infants are supplied with breast milk.

After a breast enlargement with implants, the woman can normally still breastfeed. However, breast implants can also cause difficulty breastfeeding. Especially after a periareolar cut (see chapter “Brustimplanate”) and subglandular implant pocket.

Like any operation, putting breast implants carries risks!

General surgical risks: Complications of anesthesia, early postoperative post-bleeding, late postoperative post-bleeding (6 months or more), hematoma, serom (fluid accumulation), wound infection, wound dehiscence, scar.

Specific complications in breast implanates: Chest pain, emotional disorders, impairment of breastfeeding, visible wrinkle formation (rippling), asymmetry, thinning of breast tissue with symmastia, capsule fibrosis, high-standing implants, turning of implants, capsule rupture, ACLC.

 

The presence of X-ray opaque breast implanates can affect mammography. However, trained radiologists can also diagnose suspicious findings. Alternatively, MRI and ultrasound are available.

MRI is an optimal tool for providing safe examination to women with breast implants. An MRI in combination with an ultrasound is suggested especially in patients with positive family history.

Inframammar: Surgical skin cutting takes place in the breast envelope. There is a maximum good overview of the surgical field and thus the anatomy. A clean preparation of the tissue and the placement of the implants is possible. In principle, it is the preferred access to use implants. The scar should come to rest exactly in the underbust fold.

Periareolar: A cut on the edge of the wart yard, which allows a completely unobtrusive access. The periareolar cut takes place along the lower half of the wart atrium. Due to the very narrow access, the insertion of the implants is often difficult and tissue traumatizing.

Transaxillary: The incision takes place in the armpits. Thus, the scar is not visible.

Transumbilical: This is a little-used implant-setting technique, in which the cutting is performed on the navel.

Transabdominal: The breast implants are placed by means of an abdominal incision.

The five basic approaches to inserting the implants are described in anatomical relation to the large pectoral muscle.

Subglandular: The breast implant is placed behind the mammary gland – between the mammary gland and large pectoral muscle.

Subfascial: The breast implant is placed under the fascia of the large pectoral muscle. The subfascial position is a variant of subglandular placement.

Subpectoral (dual level): The implant is placed under the large pectoral muscle after the surgeon has severed the lower muscle attachments. Consequently, the upper pole of the implant lies partially under the muscle, while the lower pole is covered only by the mammary gland.

Submuscular: The breast implant is placed under the large pectoral muscle without loosening the lower approaches of the muscle. In reconstructive surgery, the submuscular implant insert provides a maximum coverage of it. This technique is rarely used in cosmetic surgery due to the high risk of “animation errors” (dancing breast – co-moving the implant when the large pectoral muscle is tensioned/activated).

Subcutaneous: In a breast reconstruction after a skin-saving or breast-saving mammary gland removal, the implant is inserted above the large pectoral muscle.

What customers say about Dr. Julia Cordin

After my 2 pregnancies, my C-Cup had shrunk to an A-cup. Since the breast augmentation at Dr. Cordin I feel comfortable again and am really happy. That was the best decision!

Natasha, 34 years - Breast augmentation with silicone implants

I have a completely new body feeling and can now enjoy my sexuality again. Thank you also for the great support and perfect advice in advance!

Lilly, 54 years - self-fat-tranfer outer labia

Finally, I no longer have to use a bra insert to balance my smaller left breast. In the first-ever-beautiful clinic, the right breast was reduced and adapted to the left. It’s become really great. Have taken care of me really well and felt comfortable with you! Thank you.

Anna, 21 years - Matching breast surgery for breast assymetry

The disturbing fat pads at my problem areas are hardly there anymore. The operation gave me a kick, now finally to make more movement and look at me.
