Breast Implant Size

This can be a dilemma for most women. You want the increase in breast size to be significant and worthwhile, but at the same time, not too large.

To aid you in your decision making, we’ll show you a range of images from different operations. It’s an important process and we dedicate the necessary time in guiding you to ensure that you feel comfortable.

Breast Implant Shape

Breast implants can be either teardrop-shaped or round. Teardrop-shaped breast implants are designed to follow the natural profile of the breast and some women feel they achieve the most natural-looking result. However, implants can shift within the breast, and when a teardrop-shaped implant shifts, it can distort the shape of the breast. Round breast implants do not have a definitive top or bottom and so they can shift freely without changing the shape of the breast. When these implants are placed under the pectoral muscle, the muscle presses on the upper part of the implant, creating a natural teardrop shape.

No two breast augmentation procedures are the same. An outstanding outcome depends on a careful and comprehensive evaluation of your personal needs followed by skilful surgery. At Avenue Plastic Surgery, we are committed to breast augmentation surgery with peace of mind.

The Incision

Planning the site of your incision is an important aspect of breast implant surgery. The most common site for the incision is just above the fold, under the breast. This incision gives excellent access to create a pocket behind the pectoral muscle. The scar is usually only 3-4cm long and usually heals so well as to be barely visible. An alternative is to make the incision in the armpit. This approach avoids a scar on the breasts altogether. As the armpit is a long way from the bottom of the breast, special instruments are required in order to create a pocket in a suitable position for a breast implant.
