What to choose in breast augmentation

As already mentioned, it is a more complex choice than it seems, and which, unfortunately, is often influenced by factors such as fashions. In particular, in this period it should be emphasized that in the United States, where silicone prostheses have not yet been fully reintroduced and most of the implants are prostheses in saline solution, it is practically necessary to resort in almost all cases to submuscular positioning, for avoid unpleasant complications related precisely and exclusively to prostheses in saline solution (emptying over time with palpability of the folds of the shell, rinsing, changes in the shape of the implant related to the position of the body, etc.) breast augmentation thailand

Unfortunately even in Europe, where the choice of prostheses is wider, there is often a tendency to imitate what happens in the United States, both for the image advantages that the surgeon derives from this choice, and for the requests of the patients, who are not always correctly informed about the technical possibilities and the results obtainable with one procedure rather than another. The final choice, of course, will have to be made after discussing with your surgeon, who has the task of illustrating all the possibilities, giving as precise an idea as possible of the advantages and disadvantages of each.

A hint at the more complex variants

For information, we mention some of the most frequent technical variants, which allow you to optimize the results of a breast augmentation:


Pure (immediately below the gland)

Subfascial (the pocket for the prosthesis is set up between the pectoralis muscle and the fascia that covers it: less bleeding during surgery, less palpability of the edges of the prosthesis, possible lower incidence of capsular contracture)


Partial retropectoral (the origin of the pectoral muscle is not divided at the level of the inframammary fold)

Total retropectoral (better coverage of the implant in the lower lateral portion, at the expense of a greater risk of upward displacement, a longer duration of the procedure, and a reduction in the position and shape control of the inframammary fold)


Quite a complex operation, which consists in setting up a submuscular pocket also carrying out the dissection in the plane between the muscle and the gland.
