Incision Placement Options for Breast Augmentation

Dr. Miller offers two types of incision options:

  • Periareolar incision: This incision option is made along the edge of the areola. The scar is concealed well and the incision is good for all breast implant types.
  • Inframammary incision: This incision option is made along the crease underneath the breast. This technique is appropriate for all types of breast implants and creates a well-concealed scar.

Which incision type is right for you? To answer this, Dr. Miller considers a variety of factors, including your:

  • Body type
  • Amount and quality of natural breast tissue
  • Type, size and placement of your breast implant
  • Desired results, such as cleavage and upper breast fullness
  • Whether your breast augmentation will include a breast lift
  • Your personal preference
  • Your expectations for results
  • Areola size

Dr. Miller will discuss all of your breast augmentation options, including incisions, during your initial consultation. Together, you will collaborate on a fully-customized plan, tailored to your unique body and goals.

Breast Implant Placement Options

When choosing the appropriate breast implant placement, Dr. Miller will recommend one of three options:

  • Subglandular implant placement: With this type of placement, the breast implant is positioned between the chest muscle and the breast tissue (under the glands).
  • Submuscular implant placement: This type of placement involves breast implant placement beneath the chest muscle.
  • Dual plane placement: The most commonly used technique where the implant is submuscular as well as subglandular.

Dr. Miller will explain these options and discuss his recommendation with you. As with every choice made along your transformative journey, Dr. Miller will answer your questions, address your concerns and help you make an informed decision.

Revision Breast Augmentation Surgery

If your aesthetic tastes have changed over time, breast augmentation revision surgery gives you the option to choose a different size or shape of implant. Patients also visit Dr. Miller when they are displeased by a previous surgeon’s work or to address a complication.

No matter why you need breast revision surgery, Dr. Miller has the knowledge, skill, experience and precision needed to ensure you receive the highest standards of quality and safety.


Recovery From Breast Augmentation Surgery

While everyone heals differently, most patients plan to take at least a week off from work after breast augmentation surgery. You should avoid exercise, especially using upper body or chest muscles, for the first two weeks of your recovery. After two weeks, you can begin lower-body exercise and switch from a special post-operative bra to a sports bra. After six weeks Dr. Miller’s patient can return to full unrestricted activity.

Dr. Miller will provide you with detailed pre and post operative instructions. He will explain how you should prepare for your surgery and what to expect during each step of your recovery. He encourages questions and is always available to answer your questions and address your concerns.


What Are The Pros and Cons of Saline and Silicone Breast Implants?

Both saline and silicone implants can help enhance the appearance of a woman’s breast. However, both do have different functions that make them unique. For example, saline implants use sterilized saltwater within a silicone shell, while silicone implants use a special type of gel filling.

Below are the other pros and cons of saline and silicone breast implants:

Saline Implant Pros

Saline implants come with a variety of pros, such as adjustability. Upon inserting the implant into the breast, it is then filled with a saline solution. This allows the plastic surgeon to adjust the volume of the implant so there is more symmetry between the breasts.

The second pro is the reduced chance of scarring. One of the biggest concerns women have when considering breast augmentation is the appearance of scars. Saline implants are minimally invasive and use smaller incisions compared to silicone implants.

The third pro of getting saline implants is that it is easier to notice a rupture. As time goes on, it is possible for the implant to leak or rupture. When a saline implant ruptures, the solution is absorbed and naturally excreted from the body. You will notice the effects immediately as it causes the affected breast to deflate. This can allow you to treat it effectively in a timely manner.

The final pro of saline implants is that they are more affordable than silicone implants, which makes them a budget-friendly option for patients.

Saline Implant Cons

Saline implants are a good option. However, there are some potential cons that may not resonate with your aesthetic goals. The first con is that saline implants do not have much of a natural feel. This is especially important for women who have a slim figure, as there is not enough breast tissue to complement the implant.

The second con is that saline implants can have a rippling effect due to the solution that is used. Again, this is more prominent in thinner women who opt for larger implants. The third con of saline implants is that they are more prone to rupturing and causing your breasts to deflate. This may also increase the need for revision surgeries.

Silicone Implant Pros

The first pro of silicone implants is that they appear and feel like natural breasts. This is because the silicone gel can replicate the consistency and texture of natural breast tissue. This is ideal for women who are looking for a more natural-looking appearance.

The second pro of silicone implants has a reduced risk of rippling. The silicone gel within these implants is thicker compared to the saline solution, making these a great option for thinner women.

The third and final pro of silicone implants is how long they can last. Compared to saline implants, silicone implants are more durable and have a lower risk of rupturing and leakage. This makes silicone implants ideal for a long-lasting solution.

Silicone Implant Cons

Although silicone implants can help women achieve a more natural appearance with their breasts, they are not without faults. One of the biggest drawbacks of silicone implants is “silent rupturing.” Unlike saline implants, a silicone implant can rupture without any immediate symptoms. This can make it more difficult to detect and may require you to undergo routine MRI scans to monitor the implant.

Another drawback of silicone implants is the scarring. Compared to saline implants, silicone implants do require much larger incisions to be inserted into the breast. This can result in more noticeable scarring.

The third con of silicone implants is that they are generally more expensive than their saline counterparts. This can prevent some patients from achieving their aesthetic goals.

The final con of silicone implants is restrictions. Depending on your location, there may be a limitation on who is eligible for silicone implants. This is particularly important for younger women looking to receive breast implants.

Many patients spend a lot of time deliberating on which implant is better. The truth of the matter is that there is no single best option. The best option is based on your preferences and what you think is best to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
