At ARC Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jeremy White offers personalized breast implant procedures to suit the unique needs and goals of each patient. Located in Miami, Florida, the practice provides a range of implant options, including silicone and saline implants, as well as different sizes and profiles.
When it comes to selecting the most flattering implant size, there are a few things that should be considered: body type, chest dimension, and others. Each individual’s aesthetic preferences play a major part in this decision-making process. Fortunately, Dr. White is available to offer guidance during your selection journey so that you can select an option that complements the natural curves of your figure while simultaneously enhancing attractiveness and appeal.
When it comes to breast augmentation, choosing the right type of implant is an important decision that can impact the overall look and feel of the breasts.
If you’re considering breast implants, the two FDA approved types are silicone and saline. Silicone implants feature a gel similar to natural tissue and provide an attractive look and feel. They rarely wrinkle or ripple like their saline counterparts do. Unfortunately, if one of them breaks, it may be difficult to identify right away. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water and offer a more firm and uniform feel. They are also typically less expensive than silicone implants and can be adjusted during surgery to achieve the desired size. In the event of a rupture, the body absorbs the saline solution and poses no health risk.
When selecting between teardrop and round breast implants, one should reflect on their desired aesthetic. Teardrop implants emulate the natural shape of a woman’s bust, with more volume at the bottom and less up top. Round implants offer uniform fullness throughout the entire area. With both options offering distinct outcomes, it is essential that individuals think through which form best serves them before making their decision.
When deciding on an implant, there are three main profile options to consider: high, moderate, and low. With each option comes varying levels of projection and width. For instance, a high-profile implant offers the most projection but a slightly rounder, less natural appearing upper pole to the breast, whereas moderate and low-profile implants provide varied degrees of lower projection with more of a natural, tear-drop breast shape resulting. Ultimately, it’s important for patients to evaluate their desired breast shape and size before selecting which profile best fits their needs.
Breast implant placement is vital to achieving the desired look. The three primary options are subglandular, subfascial, and submuscular. The chosen implant placement can affect the final look, feel, and safety of the breast augmentation procedure.
Subglandular implant placement involves positioning the implant directly beneath the breast tissue and above the chest muscle. This placement is suitable for patients who have enough natural breast tissue to cover the implant and do not require additional support from the chest muscle. Subglandular placement can provide a natural-looking result and a shorter recovery period.
Subfascial implant placement is when the implant goes beneath the fascia layer that covers the chest muscle but above the muscle itself. This placement option offers the benefits of both subglandular and submuscular placement, providing a natural-looking result with less risk of capsular contracture. Subfascial placement also has a shorter recovery period than submuscular placement.
Submuscular implant placement is when the implant is beneath the chest muscle. This placement option is typically ideal for patients with minimal breast tissue, as the chest muscle provides additional coverage and support for the implant. Submuscular placement can also reduce the risk of capsular contracture and provide a natural result. Dr. White often combines the benefits of submuscular and subglandular breast implant placement by using the dual-plane placement, in which the upper part of the implant is protected by the chest muscle and the lower part of the implant fills out the lower part of the breast.
Breast implant incisions are a crucial aspect of breast augmentation surgery that can affect the outcome.
By making inframammary incisions along the breast’s natural crease, where it meets the chest wall, surgeons gain direct access to the breast tissue and can precisely position an implant. This type of incision offers incredibly minimal scarring that is concealed beneath the bust line - a huge advantage. This incision also offers access for placement of supporting meshes and can be incorporated in a breast lift procedure. This is the most popular and common approach to breast augmentation surgery.
By making an Areolar incision around the circular border of your nipple, you can gain access to the underlying breast tissue while still keeping a level of precision. But that’s not all: if done correctly, this type of procedure will give you minimal scarring and make any evidence nearly invisible since it blends in with the natural coloration along your areola’s edge.
The transaxillary incision procedure is performed in the armpit’s natural crease, with a tunnel created below the skin to insert the implant. This technique does not put a scar on the breast, but it is more difficult to control the breast implant placement precisely. offers an immense advantage over others: no scarring on your breast tissue. Not only that, but it also reduces any chance of damaging milk ducts and nerves within your breasts for a more aesthetically pleasing outcome.
With TUBA incisions, surgeons make a precise cut near the navel before inserting an implant through a discreet tunnel beneath the skin. Unfortunately, this does not offer good visualization of the breast tissue anatomy and only saline implants can be placed through this technique.
