Breast augmentation with round implants

how to perform breast augmentation with implants

Every patient before the augmentation mammoplasty is faced with the problem of choosing an endoprosthesis. Even after visiting several specialists, she may not get a clear answer.

Round implants have long been the only possible choice for breast augmentation. And despite the emergence of the anatomy that more closely follows the natural contours of the mammary gland, the spherical shape has remained the preference of many plastic surgeons.

Medicine does not stand still, therefore the new generation of round implants differs from the old one in better quality, both in strength and in the appearance of the end result. Modern round endoprostheses no longer look as artificial as they used to and also feel soft.

Types of round implants

Round implants can differ in the type of filling:

  • saline solution.Contains a saline solution that when released is absorbed by the body without causing damage.
  • silicone.Filled with cohesive, non-flowing gel. It doesn't seep out even if the shell breaks.
  • two-chamber.Combines silicone and saline solution.
  • Biocompatible.Contains a biodegradable gel based on natural polymers.

Depending on the type of profile, spherical endoprostheses can be:

  • flat- low profile;
  • convex- with a high level of awareness.

Who can use round implants?

The opinion that it is better to install round endoprostheses for young girls with small breasts is wrong. The choice of an implant depends not only on the patient's wishes, but also on their physiological properties. When choosing, the plastic surgeon takes into account the height, type of figure and structure of the breast. In addition, it is necessary to take into account the woman's profession and daily activities. For example, women athletes often use spherical endoprostheses.

By choosing round implants, you achieve the same natural effect as with anatomical implants. This depends on the method of implantation of the endoprosthesis. When a round implant is inserted under the pectoral muscle, the gel flows under its pressure into the lower part and takes on a teardrop shape. The degree of muscle pressure depends on its physiological capabilities. Installation of an endoprosthesis under the mammary gland does not lead to such a result.

Advantages of a round breast augmentation

Round implants are used more often than anatomical ones. They have a number of advantages that make them the choice of both patients and plastic surgeons.

  • The price for round endoprostheses is lower than the price for anatomical ones.
  • It is easier and less problematic for a specialist to perform an operation to install a round implant.
  • It is not necessary to wear compression clothing for a very long time in the postoperative phase.
  • Fills out the upper breast lift to create a "push-up" effect.
  • Rotating the implant does not change the shape of the breast.
  • Has a natural effect in every position.
  • Possibility to install a prosthesis via any access.

Of course, the final choice of the shape of the implant depends only on you, but it is worth hearing the opinion of a competent plastic surgeon, having performed more than a dozen surgeries and knowing what the end result will be in one or twoanother case will look like.
