TYPES OF BREAST IMPLANTS
TYPES OF IMPLANTS SURFACE
One of the discussion points when choosing a brand of the implant is the quality of the surface, namely the nature of the texture of the implant. Thus, each manufacturer has its own pore diameter, resulting in fact that textured implants differ in quality. Qualitative differences in the texture of the implant - is the main parameter to which you should pay attention when choosing a brand. Today the market of plastic surgery implants represented various companies: Allergan, Mentor, Sebbin, Arion, Polytech.
The advantage of the textured surface of the implant is a low risk of capsular contracture. The downside is that it requires a more precise placement of the formation of the pocket implant, since this relief will serve as a place to attach it.
This type of implant is simpler to use. Chest thus has high mobility, since the surface of the implant is smooth and is attached to the walls of the pocket. This additional mobility gives good results in the beginning, but in the long term often develop ptosis (drooping) of the breast, and thus the results are less durable. Also, this type of implant has a greater risk of injury and the development of capsular contracture.
TYPES OF IMPLANTS FORM
Selection of the shape of the implant is carried out on the basis of the original shape of the breast, body type (asthenic, hypersthenic type), the desired results, combined manipulation.
Round implants have a spherical shape, ie the same width and height, and the upper part is lower. Consequently, the same likewise it fills the upper and lower pole of the breast. Typically, they are used in patients who want more fullness in the upper chest. Nevertheless, it is important to note that the data selection implants limited if necessary to change the shape of the breast, or to correct certain aspects of the breast.
Also known as the teardrop-shaped implants. The point of maximum projection is not in the middle of the implant, and in its lower part, making a rounded lower pole. These implants have a lot of independent parameters (height, width, projection, length of the arch), and therefore their choice is more complex and delicate. However, this type of implant allows for excellent natural results like a normal breast augmentation and mastopexy combined with the elimination or tubular.
TYPES OF IMPLANTS FILLER
The filler of this type of implant is relatively thick, jelly-like silicone gel, more commonly known as high-cohesive gel. These gels retain the shape of the implant, and to break the shell gel does not have a migration potential. The degree of density of the gel varies.
LIQUID SILICONE GEL
From my perspective, these implants are outdated. They are soft to the touch, but not able to maintain the shape of the gland, and to break the gel membranes can migrate beyond.
WHEN DO YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE IMPLANTS?
The time factor. Implants breast past generations require replacement every 10 years due to the deterioration of the material and increase the risk of damage to the implant. Today it is not so. Modern implants have a lifetime manufacturer's warranty and do not require replacement.
Inadequate choice of implants in the previous operation, and therefore unsatisfactory aesthetic results.
The desire to change the volume of the patient's chest
Capsular contracture. Capsular contracture, is thought to be a consequence of entering the small number of microorganisms to surgery. That is, the amount of which obviously does not lead to infection, but forms a capsule implant abnormal and excessive expression. In these cases, as a rule, should be performed capsulectomy, i.e. remove the old capsule and install new implants in order to form a new capsule.
Small breasts. Implants of past generations with a smooth surface have a significant drawback - they are not connected with the capsule that forms around them. Therefore lowered with time, and hence also the chest. In these cases often must perform the replacement of implants with simultaneous mastopexy (breast lift)
Asymmetry. In these cases, a careful selection of new implants by various parameters, mostly - the projection.
