Breast Augmentation Procedure Details:

All of our breast augmentation procedures in Philadelphia are performed by Dr. Glat and are 100 percent customized. The first step is to choose the size and shape of the implants and between silicone and saline. The type and size of the implants will determine the length and location of the incisions and implant placement.

What Type of Implant Should I get for my Breast Augmentation?

Women who are interested in breast augmentation have a choice between silicone and saline implants. Both are FDA-approved for safety, and each has significant advantages. Dr. Paul M. Glat and his staff will discuss the pros and cons of each type to help you determine which type is ideal for you.

Saline VS Silicone

Saline implants are the safest option because saline is non-toxic and can easily be absorbed by the body in the event of a rupture. If a saline implant ruptures, it is immediately evident because the implant visibly deflates. While silicone implants are also safe, and a rupture is very rare, silicone implants can pose a health risk in rare cases.

The newest saline implants have a very realistic look and feel, but many women feel that silicone implants look and feel more like natural breast tissue. On the other hand, because saline implants are filled after implantation, and silicone implants are pre-filled, the incisions for breast augmentation with saline implants are typically smaller.

Implant Placement

One of the most critical decisions in breast augmentation is whether to have your implants placed beneath or above the chest muscles. If you choose to have the implants placed beneath the chest muscles, you can expect a slightly more natural feel and slope of the breast.

You will experience more post-operative discomfort and longer recovery time as muscles in the chest adapt to their new position. If the implants are placed above the chest muscles, and beneath your natural breast tissue, it is a less invasive procedure, with less post-operative discomfort and shorter recovery time.

Incision Types

Most implants are placed via the inframammary fold – the crease under your breasts. Inframammary breast augmentation allows Dr. Glat the best control during surgery but does leave a small scar at the base of the breast that may be visible when you are lying down. An alternative is to make an incision in the armpit. If you choose this option, you can avoid leaving a visible scar on your breasts. This surgical approach does not allow for as much precision and is typically employed with saline implants, as they are filled after placement.

Discreet Incisions: Your Options

Philadelphia patients who want more discreet incisions can choose to have breast augmentation via incisions around the areola or in the navel instead. Incisions around the areola typically heal very well and are difficult to detect after the surgery. Incisions in the navel are the hardest to detect after healing. However, only saline implants can be placed through the navel.

What are the Risks of Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Like any surgery, breast augmentation carries the usual surgical risks, such as bleeding, infection, and reactions to anesthesia. Other risks include: Leaking or bursting implants (occurs rarely), Shifting implants, Numbness in the area, Dissatisfaction with surgery results, and Scar not fading as expected.

What is the RecoveryAfter Breast Augmentation?

Dr. Paul M. Glat performs most breast augmentation surgeries in Philadelphia with general anesthesia. Protective bandages are removed at a follow-up appointment a few days after the procedure. You can expect soreness after your surgery and will have prescription pain medication to keep you comfortable in the early stages of healing.

You will be restricted from engaging in any strenuous physical activities for about a month. The scars from breast augmentation surgery take several months to fade. However, you should be able to return to work and other activities after about two weeks. Our patients are thrilled with the results of their custom breast augmentation performed by Dr. Glat, a leading, board-certified plastic surgeon.
