Which Breast Implant Is Best for Me?

Silicone implants

Silicone implants have a smooth, natural feel, greater durability, and less chance of rippling or wrinkling

Saline implants

Saline implants require smaller incisions, cost less, and have a lower risk of complications. Sterile saline solution can be easily absorbed by the body in case of a rupture.

Gummy Bear implants

Gummy bear implants are tear-shaped and versatile and retain their contours. These implants are available in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and textures to allow for greater customization to meet your aesthetic goals.

Is It Better to Have Implants Placed Above or Below the Muscle?

The best implant placement for you can depend on several factors, including your anatomy, implant type, shape, and size, your concerns and cosmetic goals. After a consultation and evaluation, Dr. Beck can recommend the best approach for you, as an individual.

There are advantages to both submuscular (under the muscle) and subglandular (above the muscle) placement:

Subglandular placement

Subglandular placement results in a faster recovery with less post-surgical pain and discomfort.

Submuscular placement

Submuscular placement lowers the risk of capsular contracture, a condition in which the scar tissue capsule that forms around the implant hardens, constricting the implant and often causing it to become misshapen. Placement under the muscle also reduces the risk of rippling, wrinkling, or implant shifting.

Where Should My Incisions Be Located?

Dr. Beck performs breast augmentation surgery in Charlotte, NC with several incision placement options:

Inframammary incision

Inframammary (in the fold underneath the breast) incision placement provides the surgeon with the best access for implant placement and adjustment and leaves mostly invisible incision lines.

Periareolar incision

Peri-areolar (around the areola) incisions may be the best option when breast augmentation is performed in combination with a breast lift.

Transaxillary incision

Transaxillary (under the arm) incisions leave no incision lines on the breast, but rather hidden in the armpits.

Custom-Tailored Breast Augmentation

You will have several important decisions to make in preparation for breast augmentation surgery, including:

  • Implant type
  • Implant size
  • Implant shape
  • Implant texture
  • Implant placement (above or below the pectoral muscle)
  • Incision placement (around the nipple, in the armpit, or in the fold beneath the breast)

Your first step is to schedule a consultation at Beck Plastic Surgery. After listening attentively to your aesthetic goals and carefully evaluating your natural anatomy, Dr. Beck can tailor a surgical plan specifically for you to achieve natural-looking results with one of the best breast augmentations Charlotte has to offer.
