Most often, breast augmentation surgery is performed to increase small breasts or to fight the loss of breast volume after breastfeeding. For the final effect to look natural, the size and shape of breast implants must be chosen carefully, in accordance with the natural frame of Your chest. Breast augmentation surgery helps women gain confidence and boosts their self-esteem. Results desired by patients may vary depending on their individual preferences.
To accommodate every patient, KCM Clinic hospital offers several types of breast implants, available in multiple shapes and sizes. Each of them is of the best quality. Those are:
- Mentor round implants,
- Mentor teardrop implants,
- Polytech B-Lite implants.
MENTOR round implants filled with silicone
Mentor implants are produced by the renowned company Johnson & Johnson. They are filled with the best quality cohesive silicone gel. Before Your breast augmentation surgery, You might be wondering if You should choose round or teardrop implants. Both of them have certain advantages. The shape of breast implants should be chosen based on the amount of Your natural chest area fat tissue and Your desired results. Round Mentor implants provide You with a full cleavage and a voluminous upper breast.MENTOR teardrop implants filled with silicone
When it comes to selecting the type and size of breast implants, You should consult a doctor about Your expectations. The surgeon will examine the natural shape of Your body and advise You on the best implants for You individually. Depending on Your preferences, You can choose round or teardrop implants. Mentor teardrop implants are also referred to as anatomical breast implants. In most patients, those implants look the most natural, providing the breasts with a sloped shape and a fuller bottom.
Polytech B-Lite implants
Breast augmentation surgery may help You feel better in Your own body. It is performed by experienced surgeons and with the use of top-quality materials. Its results in enhancing the shape of Your breasts are permanent. There are, however, some dangers of breast augmentation surgery, especially when You decide to use large implants. The increased bust can be quite heavy, which sometimes causes premature sagging breasts. A solution for this problem is choosing innovative Polytech B-Lite implants that are up to 30% lighter than regular implants of the same size.
Polytech B-Lite implants reduce the strain on the breasts, even if You choose a large model. They help You retain the natural, attractive shape of Your bust and provide You with freedom of movement. The implants are filled with B-Lite gel, which is a combination of medical silicone and microspheres — minuscule spherical particles that are empty on the inside. B-Lite implants have an excellent safety profile, and they offer a significantly lighter weight compared to more traditional breast implants while maintaining a natural appearance.
Breast implant replacement with capsulotomy using MENTOR round implants or MENTOR teardrop implants
In some cases, breast implants might have to be replaced. Contrary to popular belief, it is not compulsory to replace them every ten years. There are several reasons for replacing breasts implants. If You have breast implants, but You are not satisfied with their shape or size, You can exchange them for a different model. Breast implants might also have to be replaced due to side effects of breast augmentation surgery, such as:
- Breast implant rupture,
- Capsular contracture.
The danger of implant rupture increases after ten years since breast augmentation surgery. It often changes the appearance of the breast and the way it feels. Capsular contracture may happen in a few months following the operation, and it is an incident of the body rejecting the implants. Since the implant is a foreign body, scar tissue forms around it. In the case of capsular contracture, the scar tissue becomes too thick, so the implant feels firm and sometimes causes pain.
Capsular contracture is treated by making incisions in the scar tissue. It allows it to form again properly. This procedure is called a capsulotomy. It is recommended to remove the implant that caused capsular contracture and replace it with a safe breast implant, such as a Mentor implant. A Mentor round implant provides You with a full cleavage and a lot of volume in the upper breast, while a Mentor teardrop implant has an anatomical shape that resembles a real breast. The teardrop-shaped implant offers You a voluminous lower breast and a sloped silhouette of the bust.
