Now Breast implant surgery has become one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures. Every woman has different anatomy and a different desire for the breast volume and shape. A wide variety of different types of implants are currently available to match their needs.
Medical science and device engineering has seen a lot advancement. So breast implant has become quite safe, Breast implant life is about 10to 12 years but one must remember that breast implant is not a life-long surgery. The patient usually needs second surgery down the line.
Different size of the implants is available to match the patient’s desire and anatomy. The end volume of the breast is a total of patient breast native volume plus implant volume.
For long-lasting aesthetic breast shape, optimum volume implant to be selected. Optimum implant size is decided from the patient’s tissue characteristics like chest width, breast width, native breast volume, and skin characteristic.
Apart from the volume/size, there are only three design variables that describe each of these devices, i.e., shape, shell characteristics, and filling material. Understanding how these three variables mix and match allows the surgeon to choose best fit implant according to your desired breast shape and size..
The predominant shape incorporated into the design of a breast implant was classified as the round shape.
A “round” implant actually has a shaped aspect of its design. These implants are symmetrical in the horizontal and vertical dimensions; however, the projection tends to be less than the width or height of the device. The advantage is the height and width, which remains the same if the implant rotates inside as the shape doesn’t change. The disadvantage includes that if the upper pole convex is not covered by breast tissue properly, then the implant is felt from outside.
What has been traditionally called an “anatomically shaped” implant is an implant shell being asymmetrically designed in the horizontal, vertical, and sagittal (projection) dimensions. It is also called as “tear drop implant”. The projection increases from the top of the device down to the lower third of the implant. Which is designed to mimic the contour of a normal breast in the upright position. It corrects the ptosis of breast better compared to the round implant.
The original silicone gel implants were constructed with a smooth surface. It has some problem of capsular contracture means hardening and distortion of the breast.
It was discovered that coating an implant with a layer of polyurethane foam resulted in a dramatic reduction in the rate of capsular contracture. However, the late degradation of polyurethane resulted in capsular contracture and other complications.
So, silicone texture was developed to reduce capsule formation. There are two basic textures are used in the vast majority of silicone and saline implants: Biocell and Siltex.
Recently there are variation of texture like micro texture and Nano texture implant are also available.
Advantages of the textured implant include the following:
NOTE: Recently textured implant has been associated with ALCL (ACUTE LARGE CELL LYMPHOMA). ALCL is a low-grade curable lymph cancer and not associated with breast cancer as it occurs rarely. But smooth implant association with ALCL is not found
There are several filler materials are used in the breast implants, i.e., hydrocolloid gel and peanut. But, only two fillers stood with the time called Saline fillers & Silicone gel fillers.
The Disadvantage includes the following:
A greater degree of cross-linking of the silicone molecules give firmer consistency, which translates to better support for the anatomically constructed shell. Shape maintained during the upright position. It is called as form stable implant or gummy bear implant, less wrinkling at the upper pole and it has more sustainability.
Drawbacks include the following:
and filling material— (That are of various types)
Beyond the issues related to projection, what the implant is filled with can dramatically affect its performance. Because of their relatively low level of cohesively, saline-filled implants must be filled to a greater degree than silicone gel implants to perform safely;
One disadvantage of this overfill strategy, is the more rounded contour of the overfilled round device. In thinner patients, this rounded contour can distort the breast, creating an artificial, augmented appearance.
Filling the round implant with silicone gel is more easily tolerated by the round implant shell. Here an under fill strategy can be used because the wrinkles that form are much softer and place less stress on the implant shell. The wrinkles are also less likely to become visible through the skin envelope. This, together with the overall softer feel of silicone gel-filled implants, makes them a preferred choice among many surgeons.
The anatomically shaped implant has theoretical advantage in the context of creating an attractive breast contour. But if they rotate, then breast shape gets altered with the development of textured silicone surfaces.
This is an implant fixation method along with the anatomic concept for breast implants, and over the years, several different anatomic designs for both silicone and saline has been introduced.
TEXTURED short height anatomically shaped saline implants; textured, full-height anatomically shaped saline implant was developed for both augmentation and reconstruction. It was thought to be better suited for reconstruction because it could provide a better upper pole filler for the breast after the mastectomy.
The anatomically shaped textured cohesive silicone gel implant combined with a variable textured in order to provide an achievable outcome both in terms of augmentation/implantation and reconstruction.
The cohesive gel-filled anatomically shaped implant holds its shape when placed upright, whereas the saline device collapses in the upper pole, leading to the possible formation of visible or palpable wrinkles.
Manufacturers have developed a series of combination devices in an attempt to combine the advantage of saline volume adjust ability with the soft feel of silicone, Generally, the outer lumen is developed a silicone gel filling material as well as inner lumen is filled with saline. The valve which passes through the outer gel component makes the access of the inner saline portion. This concept has also been explored in patients with volume adjust ability with the final desired size by adding saline as needed as post operatively, then eventually removing the remote port.
Although its use has limitations to a certain extent in daily aesthetic practice.

B) In the Operation Theater
General aesthesia is administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure.
Incisions are made in discreet areas so that scarring is not visible or is hidden under clothing. You and your plastic surgeon will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome. Incision options include: along the areolar edge (peri-areolar incision), the fold under the breast (infra-mammary fold) and in the armpit (axillary incision). A belly-button approach (TUBA) is associated with a higher complication rate.
Incisions vary based on the type of mammoplasty surgery, degree of enlargement the desired, your particular anatomy, and the body type and patient-surgeon preference.
After the incision is made, a pocket/ space is created :
Haemostasis is achieved. Through wash with saline given. Pocket is irrigated with antibiotics solution.
Step 4 – Implant placement: Implant is placed in pocket with no touch and very gentle technique. The method for inserting and positioning implants depends on the type of implant, degree of enlargement desired, your body and skin type and your surgeon’s recommendations.
Incisions are closed with layered sutures in the tissue and skin, skin adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin. Sutures are inside and not visible on the outside and there is no need for removal.
Over time the incision lines will fade. The quality of the scar depends on many things, including your genetics, exposure of your body to nicotine and infection.
The results of the augmentation procedure are immediately visible.
While the results can be seen with immediate effect after the procedure is completed, initially, implant might look higher on the chest and nipple might point downwards. It will settle in a month’s time, however, the final results may take a few weeks as the swelling subsides and the skin stretches. Some patients will have to wear the support bra to help shape their breasts, especially they have asymmetrical boobs or the size is too small. Incision marks will heal with the application of medicines and ointments provided by the surgeon.
The selection of optimum size implants gives long term aesthetic results.
One should understand that the implant is not a lifetime procedure. One requires yearly screening test post-procedure and may require to change after a time.
Your breast size might change owing to aging, weight fluctuations, hormonal factors, and gravity. As the appearance of boobs changes with time, some patients have the option to choose from the breast lift or implant exchange to restore a more youthful contour and more youthful appearance.
Most women feel it’s worthy to go for the procedure.
Take as much liquid as possible once you are comfortable. We maintain our patients on a liquid diet on the day of surgery, which is subsequently advanced the following day to a soft regular diet .As such there is no restriction on diet, but to achieve better result and sound recovery, we recommend high protein, low fat and low carbohydrate diet.

So tissue reaction, swelling, bruising and pain will be less, and recovery will be faster. Amount and duration of the fluid discharge depends on the area of surgery and extent of fat removal. Normally it stops in a day or two. In case of mega liposuction, it may last longer. In the hospital sister will do dressing. And you will be taught how to take care of dressing before discharge. Mild bruising may occur for 3 weeks after surgery. If there is excessive bleeding or swelling or pain unrelieved by medication, please call the doctor immediately.

Q: What are silicone breast implants made of?
A: It is a pre-filled silicone shell implant, filled with silicone gel, a thick, sticky cohesive gel. It closely mimics the feel of human fat. A greater degree of cross-linking of the silicone molecules give firmer consistency, which translates to better support for the anatomically constructed shell. Shape maintained during the upright position. It is called a stable implant or gummy bear implant, less wrinkling at the upper pole and it has more durability. However it feels little more hard.
