Breast augmentation: Mammoplasty augmentation
Also known as a mammoplasty augmentation. It is performed by introducing silicone prosthesis through a hidden incision in the armpit, in the lower edge of the areola or in the sub-breast fold. The choice of one or the other will usually depend on the patient’s preference. In addition, it will also be necessary to choose the shape of the prosthesis. It can be round or anatomic, that is to say, in the shape of a tear. In Dr. Javier Collado’s opinion, the most appropriate place to introduce the prosthesis is through the infra-breast fold and if we want to look for the most natural result possible, it should be with an anatomic prosthesis, which provides a more harmonic drop of the breast. Thus, the prosthesis may be positioned above or beneath the pectoral muscle, the choice of each case depends on multiple factors, such as the patient’s breast type or the physical activity they do. Breast augmentation can be done with the patient’s own fat (mammary lipofilling), also known as breast augmentation without surgery, even though, in this case, the augmentation will be equivalent to one size. We also have the option to combine the augmentation with prosthesis with that of breast lipofilling or fat transfer, with the aim of improving the appearance and the coverage of the breast implant, giving the breast augmentation a more natural look.
