Breast augmentation – Frequent doubts



Dr. Daniel Rodríguez Morales de los Ríos, specialist in plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, and director of the Canary Institute of Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery, offers us an answer to the most frequent doubts regarding breast augmentation surgery. 1) Is it possible that there are no scars after breast augmentation surgery? In the different ways to carry out a breast augmentation (around the areola, submammary or axillary groove), there is a tendency not to leave evidence of the intervention, thanks to good healing. 2) How does the operated chest evolve over the years? Breast augmentation surgery is not permanent. This means that with the passage of time it will be necessary to carry out some retouching to maintain the best result, since with the course of age, the quality of the tissues decreases and the chest will decrease due to the effect of gravity. 3) Can the implanted prostheses be noticed? This will depend on various factors such as the type of skin, the amount of gland that covers the breast implant, the shape of the implant (anatomical implant or round implant), etc. However, if an implant adapted to the patient’s chest is used, breast augmentation surgery will not be noticeable. 4) Differences between anatomical implants and round implants In breast augmentation surgery, both types of implants can be used, with both modalities offering good results. In this sense, it will be necessary to study the specific case of each patient, to determine which one is more convenient. The anatomical implant has the advantage that it projects more of the areola-nipple complex. 5) Are breast prostheses final? The manufacturers of breast implants promise a lifetime guarantee, so they are usually definitive. However, there are exceptional cases in which a replacement of the prosthesis is required, because an implant may have hardened or broken. 6) Can separate breasts be brought together in breast augmentation surgery? In an augmentation mammoplasty we have to observe with some measurements what is the distance that we have between both areolas. Undoubtedly there are locations of the areola that are divergent by birth and it is very difficult to solve. Sometimes this is camouflaged using some type of implant with models that fill the sides a little more so that it gives the effect that they come together, but solving it by locating the areola-nipple complex in a more medial part is impossible. .
