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.

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.

Breast Augmentation FAQ

How many years does breast augmentation last?

What is the difference between breast augmentation and enhancement?

What is the difference between a breast lift and breast augmentation?

What is the ideal age for breast augmentation?

How many years does breast augmentation last?

The lifespan of breast augmentation results can vary, but implants typically last around 10 to 15 years before they may require replacement or revision surgery. Regular check-ups with a healthcare professional are recommended to monitor the implants and address any concerns over time.

What is the difference between breast augmentation and enhancement?

Breast augmentation typically refers to the surgical procedure of increasing breast size, often involving implants or fat transfer, while breast enhancement is a broader term encompassing various procedures aimed at improving the overall appearance of the breasts, including augmentation, lifts, or reductions. Enhancement can involve non-surgical options, such as exercises or garments, in addition to surgical interventions.

What is the difference between a breast lift and breast augmentation?

A breast lift, or mastopexy, focuses on reshaping and lifting existing breast tissue to address sagging, while breast augmentation involves increasing breast size, usually through implants or fat transfer, without necessarily addressing sagging. While both procedures can be performed together, they serve distinct purposes in enhancing the overall appearance of the breasts.

What is the ideal age for breast augmentation?

The ideal age for breast augmentation is typically 18 or older, ensuring physical maturity and the ability to make an informed decision about the procedure. However, individual considerations and consultations with a qualified surgeon are crucial in determining the appropriateness of breast augmentation for each person.
