What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic surgery in which the size and shape of the breasts are enhanced. Breast augmentation is often performed to improve breast symmetry or restore volume to the breasts after pregnancy, weight loss, or certain medical conditions.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Some women seeking breast augmentation have always wanted larger breasts, while others want to restore the plump, youthful breasts lost after pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, or weight loss. You may be a good candidate for breast implants in Charlotte, NC if you:

  • Are in good general health
  • Are 18 or older (for saline implants)
  • Are 22 or older (for silicone gel implants)
  • Feel that your breasts are too small for your body

Types of Breast Implants

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.

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.
