Types of Breast Augmentation
Breast enhancement in Austin, TX comes in many options. Dr. Haydon’s goal to deliver the safest, most natural results can be performed through a fat transfer or silicone gel implants. While some plastic surgeons still use saline breast implants, Dr. Haydon recognizes the disadvantages of that style of implant – rippling, a less natural look and feel, deflation, higher contracture rates – and only offers options that are long-lasting and have a low revision rate.
Fat transfer breast augmentation: is the practice of removing fatty tissue from one part of your body and injecting it into your breasts. Not only are you enhancing your breasts, but you’re also removing a small amount of fat from a problem area, improving your look even further. This type of procedure offers a natural enlargement of the breast and is typically best for those who seek a relatively small increase.
Breast enhancement with silicone gel implants: is the most popular type of surgery performed. Dr. Haydon prefers to use this type of material for enhancements because the gel feels more like natural breast tissue and is a safer option for patients. In the unlikely event that the implant was to leak, the gel would stay within the implant shell and would not collapse. In addition, silicone breast implants have been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for breast augmentation in women ages 22 and up.
Breast Implant Shape and Profile
One of the beginning steps in completing a breast augmentation is selecting a breast shape and profile. Round and teardrop shape implants are available, but nearly all implants performed by Dr. Haydon are round in shape. Teardrop shape implants are designed for women who are starting with no breast volume, as is the case following a mastectomy. Round implants give a fuller, more youthful appearance.
Breast implant profiles range from low to ultra high. Most procedures fall between moderate, moderate plus, or high. While there is little difference in each profile placement, the ultra high placement may thin tissue over time. Dr. Haydon will analyze your chest wall and breast measurements to determine which profile is most fitting for a natural appearance.
Breast Implant Shape and Profile
Dr. Haydon makes your procedure a priority and will thoroughly explain each step of the process based on your unique anatomical structure. Your experience with Dr. Haydon and his medical staff will leave you feeling confident and excited about your new look. You’ll explore the different types and profiles of silicone implants and discuss which is best for your desired results.
It’s natural to be concerned about scarring following any surgical procedure, but with Dr. Haydon’s extensive experience, your breast implant scars will be virtually undetectable. As one of Austin’s top plastic surgeons, Dr. Haydon can perform a breast enlargement procedure through the most common incisions. During your initial consultation, Dr. Haydon will explain how an incision in the inframammary fold is created and how you can expect the incision to heal.
Inframammary Incision: The incision made just under the breast is the most common way to complete a breast augmentation. A small incision is made within the inframammary fold, which acts as a natural concealment for any minor scarring. Studies have shown that there is the least amount of complications using this approach and thus it is the one he prefers the majority of the time.
