You have a choice of shapes for your breast prosthesis:

  • The round implant: This prosthesis is round and gives a rounded, plump appearance to the breasts.
  • Anatomical implant: This teardrop-shaped prosthesis gives breasts a more natural appearance.
  • The ergonomic implant: This prosthesis is round, but less filled than the first, which also gives a natural effect to the breasts and limits the risk of the silicone prosthesis turning inside out.

The choice will be made according to your expectations and your breasts, and our surgeon will explain the advantages and disadvantages to you. advantages and disadvantages of each option.

The materials used in your breast prostheses

Your breast implants can also be made of different materials. The most common is the siliconebut some can also be filled with saline solution.

Silicone prostheses offer a natural feel and adapt to your morphology. However, it is important to have regular check-ups to detect silent ruptures.

Saline breast forms allow the amount of solution to be adjusted after the operation. This makes it easier to modulate the volume of your breasts, and leakage is easier to detect. However, the sensation is less natural and may be uncomfortable for some patients. For all these reasons, this alternative is rarely used.

The volume of your breast implant

The volume of the silicone implant depends above all on the patient’s desired result. If you would like to take one or more cup sizesthe volume will logically be greater or lesser. It all depends on how big you want your breasts to be and how big they are now.

It’s important to listen to the advice of an expert who can tell you whether your choice is the right one for you. Breast implants that are too large for your natural breasts could lead to postural complications.

Prosthesis placement during breast augmentation

Once the silicone prostheses have been chosen, the operation can be scheduled. The incision can be made in three different places:

  • Inframammary incision which leaves a scar in the fold under the breast, is the most frequently used incision,
  • Axillary incision which leaves a scar in the armpit.

There are three possible positions for implants commonly used in breast augmentation:

  • In front of the pectoral muscle: this is the most common and simplest method, since the surgeon does not need to touch the pectoral muscles.
  • Behind the pectoral muscle: more complex, this technique is reserved for patients with little breast tissue in the chest, which means the prosthesis has to be placed under the muscle.

Dual plane: the silicone implant is placed partially under the pectoral muscle, for a more comfortable, natural look.
