Breast Augmentation Mammaplasty

Since the advent of breast implants in 1962, millions of women worldwide have breast augmentation done. Comprehensive safety intervention, the quality achieved in the manufacture of implants, and the very sharp decline in complications, with increasingly better results, have contributed to its demand among women of all ages is every increasing.

Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is indicated to correct several visual disorders of one of the most important organs for the femininity of women. Among others:

  • Alterations of the normal development of the mammary gland (lack of development).
  • The loss in breast volume after pregnancy, or aging of the breast.
  • To balance the size of the breasts when there is a significant difference between them (asymmetry).
  • To repair defects such as tuberous breasts (constriction of the breast or any of its quadrants by a developmental abnormality).

There are several types of breast implants according to their composition, although it is now generally recognized that the best performance and durability found in silicone gel implants (semicohesivos or cohesive). They offer a more natural feel, safety and durability (estimated in decades).

The fifth generation of breast implants include a semi-solid gel that reduces the leakage of gel cover (“gel bleed”) and migration of silicone filled implant in his pocket that contains it, with a very low incidence of contracture capsular and the rupture of the device, and higher rates of improvement in medical safety and in the length of the implants. Among these are preformed breast implants, also called anatomical, which provide a more quality, durability, reduced complications and aesthetic improvements. Leading manufacturers in the world (three today) are accepted in the U.S. market, and have overcome complex tests of quality, durability and study of complications before being approved by the FDA (Food and DrugAdministration).

Specifically, the NATRELLE™ manufactured by Allergan, are guaranteed by the manufacturer for life and are what I recommend to my patients, round (INSPIRE) or anatomical (410 STYLE).


Currently I recommend, in most cases, the use of anatomical breast implants with a subfascial technique. In the next post you can learn more about anatomical implants.
