Types of breast implants?

At present, more than 90% of breast implants on the market in Taiwan are made of silicone material. Various new breast implants have been continuously introduced in recent years, but they are mainly divided into:
1.Smooth-faced breast implants: Soft and natural to the touch, massage is required after surgery to allow natural sliding space for the breast implants and prevent capsular twinning.
2.Villus surface prosthesis: Patients with too thin breast skin may feel less natural, but human tissue will develop into the villi space on the prosthesis’ surface and integrate with the prosthesis, making the capsule less likely to shrink.
3.Motiva: It is a similar velvety prosthesis to the previous one, but the fluff is finer; it is also referred to as a nano velvet prosthesis. Although it costs more, it has a more natural touch and less capsular twinning.

How is a breast augmentation procedure carried out?

The implantation of breast implants during breast augmentation surgery often requires general anesthesia and is as follows:
1.Breast under the mammary fascia (under the tendons): All breast implants are positioned above the pectoralis major under the mammary fascia. It is less painful and more realistic, but it is not recommended for customers with thin or small breasts because the edge of the prosthesis will be visible.
2.All breast implants are positioned beneath the pectoralis major muscle (under the flesh), concealing the implant’s edge as the pectoralis major muscle contracts automatically to massage the area and lessen the risk of capsular contracture. The breast implant may shift upward as the muscles contract, which is a drawback.
3.The breast implant’s top portion is positioned under the pectoralis major muscle and its lower portion is positioned beneath the mammary fascia in a procedure known as double plane breast augmentation (half muscle and half muscle). Combine the benefits of the two placement spaces mentioned above.
