The filler of the breast implant is very important – silicone gel filled breast implants are soft and natural. Silicone is a man-made polymer containing chains of Silicon-Oxygen-Carbon compounds. Gel filled breast implants offer three different consistencies – soft cohesive gel, natural cohesive gel and very cohesive gel. The implants exist in two different shapes: round and anatomical. EuroSilicone ® breast implants are available in various heights, profiles and projections with a smooth or textured surface. The textured layer is aimed to reduce the risk of capsular contraction. The height of the implants is refers to the size and shape of the implants while the profile and projection refers to how far the implant sits from the body.
Placement of Implant
Two very important parameters define the choice of implants: the location of the incision and the placement of the implant. The thickness of subcutaneous tissue plays an important role here. There are two approaches of placement – sub-glandular and sub-muscular: the first allows for less discomfort and the second less interference with mammographic examination of the breasts. The incision will determine the place of scar on your body – periareolar, sub-mammary or transaxillary.
The procedure lasts 1 to 2 hours depending on the case. It is performed under general anesthetic. Potential complications can include deflation/rupture, capsular contracture, pain, infection, hematoma/seroma, changes in nipples/breast sensation, calcium deposits, necrosis, extrusion, breast tissue atrophy.
