Breast Augmentation – Cosmetic Surgery at SevenHills Hospital

  • The Procedure Is Used Cosmetically To:

    • Enlarge a naturally small breast, most commonly the result of heredity
    • Restore breast volume lost following pregnancy, as a result of breast-feeding or due to weight loss
    • Achieve better symmetry when breasts are moderately disproportionate in size and shape
  • The Procedure

    • Breast Implant Incision Type 1: Periareolar Incision - Liposuction is done under general anesthesia or “tumescent local anesthesia, on an outpatient basis in a hospital or surgical center. Patients are sometimes better off staying at the hospital for a couple of days. The surgeon makes small (less than 1/2 inch), discreet incisions in the areas to be treated. A cannula is inserted via a small incision and attached to a suction machine, and fat tissue is suctioned out. The procedure may take an hour or more, depending on how many areas are involved.
    • Breast Implant Incision Type 2: Transaxillary Incision - Made in the natural fold of the armpit tissue, the transaxillary incision allows insertion of breast implant through a channel from the armpit to the breast and then the implant is placed behind the nipple. Sometimes the surgeon uses an endoscope; a small tube with surgical light and camera to guide the surgeon through the incision. One disadvantage is that 10-15% of patients who undergo the transaxillary incision will have a greater risk of asymmetry in the breast implants position. However, there is virtually no scarring on breast as it is performed from a distanced incision site.
    • Breast Implant Incision Type 3: Inframmary Incision - Performed along the bottom of breast, the inframmary incision is placed along the crease or fold of the breast where the breast and skin come together. The surgeon creates a pocket to place the implant, and then slides it upward through the incision site and places it behind the nipple. While the inframmary incision may leave a scar along the lower portion of the breast where the bra strap lies; it can be easily hidden under a bra or swimsuit top. A major advantage of the inframmary incision is that it allows the surgeon to work closely to the breast, which provides excellent visibility and accuracy of the implants placement. Disadvantage is a visible scar and a slightly higher change of implant extrusion through the site of incision.
    • Breast Implant Incision Type 4: Tuba Incision - In the TUBA incision, the cut is made on the rim of the navel, and underneath the skin through a tunnel of fatty tissue. The endoscope helps to guide the surgeon through the pathway from navel to breast, and a pocket is created which allows the breast implant to be inserted through the incision site, and placed behind the nipple. Since the TUBA incision is a blind procedure, the surgeon relies heavily on the endoscope to identify the breast implants placement, which challenges the surgeon to perform accuracy in creating breast asymmetry. On the other hand, in the TUBA incision, there are no incisions in the breast area, so it is almost guaranteed that there will be no breast scarring. This procedure has quick recovery, and has the least post-operative complications.
