The Procedure

How Do Breast Implants Work?

Breast implants enhance the size, shape, and overall appearance of the breasts through an orchestrated surgical procedure. This approach involves precise incisions and thoughtful implant positioning to achieve natural-looking and personalised results that seamlessly integrate with the patient’s body contours.

Factors Affecting Breast Implant Placements

Location of Incisions

Our skilled surgeon often make incisions in inconspicuous locations to minimise visibility. This thoughtful approach aims to achieve aesthetic goals while considering the natural contours of your body.

Implant Positioning

Depending on your individual anatomy and desired outcome, implants are positioned either behind the breast tissue or beneath the chest muscle. This positioning contributes to a natural appearance and ensures a harmonious integration with your body’s contours

Size and Shape Considerations

Precision in implant selection, focusing on factors such as size, shape, and profile, plays a pivotal role in achieving results that align with your goals. Carefully considering these elements ensures that your enhanced breasts complement your overall body proportions.
Type of Implant
Composition
Benefits
Saline
Crafted with precision, saline implants boast a meticulous design and are filled with sterile saltwater.
Offers adjustable volume, these implants provide the flexibility to fine-tune size post-surgery. In the rare event of a rupture, the saline is harmlessly absorbed by the body.
Silicone Gel

These implants artfully mimic the natural texture of breast tissue, delivering a result that feels and looks realistic. Choose from various shapes and textures tailored to your diverse preferences.
Cohesive Silicone Gel
Level up your enhancement journey with form-stable implants, often affectionately known as "gummy bear" implants due to their thicker silicone gel.
Maintaining a consistent shape over time, these implants offer a teardrop-like appearance, ensuring a natural-looking enhancement that lasts long.
Round
Experience symmetry and fullness with round implants available in saline and silicone options.
Ideal for achieving enhanced cleavage and a symmetrical appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

The typical lifespan of saline or silicone implants is approximately 10 to 20 years. However, this depends on the following factors that may affect the durability and longevity of the implants.

  • Implant Quality – The quality of implants plays a crucial role. For instance, high-quality implants may have a longer lifespan.
  • Routine Monitoring – Regular check-ups with your plastic surgeon are essential to monitor the condition of your breast implants. These appointments detect potential issues early on and ensure the continued satisfaction and safety of the patient.
  • Changes Over Time – Breasts naturally change due to ageing, gravity, and lifestyle. These changes impact the appearance of breast implants, and individuals may choose to address these changes through implant replacement or revision.
  • Potential Rupture – Modern implants are durable, but there is a slight risk of rupture over time. Regular monitoring identifies and addresses ruptures promptly.
  • Personal Decisions – The decision to replace breast implants is often a personal one. Some individuals may opt for replacement due to changes in preferences, while others may choose to maintain their implants for a more extended period.

In the immediate postoperative days, patients may experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising, all of which can be managed with prescribed pain medications and cold compresses. Rest and limited physical activity also allow the body to heal and ensure a smooth recovery.

Initial improvements become noticeable as the first few weeks unfold, although the final results take time. We encourage our patients to be patient and follow the postoperative care guidelines provided by our plastic surgeon.
