Suitable candidates for breast augmentation

While breast augmentation will provide you with a fuller silhouette, it often doesn't adequately repair breast sagging and droopiness. You are a suitable candidate for breast augmentation when your breast and nipple are positioned above the breast fold.

If your breasts have a grade 1 (or higher) grade of sagging, a breast augmentation could still be an option. However, you might have to consider doing this in combination with a Breast Uplift.

Everything you need to know about breast implants

With the advent of new technology and medical research, a larger range of breast implants have been developed to give you an endless amount of different options. Information on the differences in types of implants and their uses can often be confusing at best. But in simple terms, there are 5 factors that need to be taken into account when choosing your breast implants.  

Types of Breast Implants: Silicone | Hydrogel | Saline

There are 3 types of implants you can choose from when considering a breast augmentation at Wellness Kliniek: Silicone, Hydrogel, and Saline breast implants.

All implants have their respective advantages and disadvantages. However, a large majority of our patients choose for silicone breast implants. Modern cohesive silicone implants are safe. They have a strong, reliable shell and are filled with a solid silicone mass, which does not leak into the body if the shell ruptures. Silicone implants are soft and soft to the touch, they give the chest a very attractive shape and feel closest to natural breast tissue.

Shapes of Breast Implants: Round vs Anatomical Implants

Anatomical implants (aka: teardrop implants), and round breast implants are the two shapes of implants uses in breast enlargement surgery.

Anatomical implants are often used in reconstructive breast augmentation when the natural shape of the breast has been lost. For aesthetic breast augmentation, round implants are generally preferred. Round breast implants are softer and more natural to touch than the harder anatomical implants.

When teardrop-shaped implant rotate over time, the shape of the breasts change and are no longer symmetrical. When a round-shaped implant rotates, there will be no change in aesthetic appearance.

The centre of gravity of an anatomical implant lays lower than its physical centre (middle point) and lower that the nipple. Sagging of the breasts is therefore likely to happen faster with anatomical implants.

The most beautiful and natural shape of the breast can be achieved with round implants. Modern silicone round prostheses become an anatomical and natural shape when standing up yet allow movement of the breasts to fall slightly outwards when lying down.

Size and Profile of Breast Implants: Low, Medium, High Extra High Profile

Breast implant sizes are most commonly measured by volume in cubic centimetres (cc) and by its profile. Most manufactures of implants offer 4 different profiles of breast implants: Low, Medium, High and Extra High profiles.

When keeping the volume of the implant at a constant, notice how the base (diameter) of the implant becomes smaller as the profile increases.

Choosing the right width and hight of implant may play a more important role on the outcome of the surgery than the actual volume of the implant. This is where the surgeon’s trained eye (and some maths) will assist you during your initial consultation in making the best choice for your desired outcome.

Textures of Breast Implants: Smooth | Textured | Micro Texture

Over the years, breast implant manufacturers realized that the surface finishing of the implants has an impact on the behaviour of the implant and the aesthetic result of a breast augmentation.

The shell of a smooth breast implant are not as thick as others which helps make it feel softer and more natural than the textured breast implant shell does. A smooth implant tends to move around more freely during activity than a textured implant does. However, It’s advantages may also be its downfall. The softer shell has a higher probability of rippling and rupturing. When an implant can move freely within the best, it has a chance of migrating or flipping upside down.

Textured implants are thick and rough and feel firmer within the breast. The textured surface locks the implant into place, barely allowing any movement within the breast. The firmer property is ideal for larger sized implants and to prevent rippling or leakage. The adhering properties are preferred with anatomical breast implants as it prevents them from rotating. It’s aesthetic downside is that they may look unnatural when laying down. In recent years, textured implants have been linked to anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), an uncommon cancer of the immune system that affects 1 in 500.000 patients.

More recently, in early 2000s, breast implant manufactures set out to combine the best properties of both smooth and textured implants. This resulted in the micro texture implant. This implant has the softer natural feel yet does not allow complete free movement of the implant. It has proven to be most reliable and best suited implant for most patients. Most implant manufactures supply micro texture in their product range. Also at Wellness Kliniek , Surgeons and Patients prefer micro textured implants for the vast majority of breast augmentations.

Most Common Brands of Breast Implants: Arion | Motiva | Mentor | Natrelle

Arion’s Monobloc SoftOne is the go to implant for most patients at Wellness Kliniek. The French made, top of the line, breast implants are a key factor to the MIBIS technique. For the implant to fit through an incision of 2-3 centimetres, the implant needs to be highly elastic, retain its shape against rippling, and definitely not rupture. The added safety properties combined with a soft and natural feel when implanted make Arion implants the most qualitative implants on the market. 

A more recent newcomer in the high end breast implants segment is Motiva Implants of Establishment Labs. This Costa Rican company has quicky gained popularity and traction worldwide. their implants are little firmer and more rigid than Arion Implants and are therefore not suitable for our MIBIS technique. However they are good implants non the less. Motiva implants are suitable amongst our patients who choose for large to very large implant sizes. 

Mentor and Natrelle alike are the two largest implant manufacturers worldwide and are especially strong in the USA. Owned respectively by two giant pharmaceutical companies, they are very strong in RnD, have a very large range of cosmetic and reconstructive implants. Thanks to their immense supply chain, the are able offer their great implants at competitive prices. 

Of course there are many more brands of implants. However, at Wellness Kliniek we tend to stick to these 4 top range manufacturers.  We are deeply committed to offer the best quality of implants. We therefore offer all the above brands at the same price. One more thing that makes Wellness Kliniek unique!

Specific implant characteristics are not necessarily better than the other. However, there is such thing as the best implant for you. These will be determined during the initial consultation with our specialist breast augmentation surgeon in accordance with your desired result and your current body morphology.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect? What is normal?
Muscle pain in the rib cage and in the back, pain and a burning or stabbing sensation in the wounds, swollen breasts, bruising and hematomas. You may feel more discomfort in one breast.
Which implant is best for me?
In consultation with your plastic surgeon, you determine which Monobloc Silicone SoftOne implant, in terms of shape, profile and volume will give the best results for you. We take your body shape and your wishes into account. You choose the shape and volume yourself.
How big are the scars?
A large incision is not necessary! Each prosthesis can be inserted through an incision measuring about 1.2 inch / 3 cm = Minimally Invasive Breast Implant Surgery. In consultation with the doctor, you determine yourself where the incision will be made: round the areola, in the fold under the breast or in the cavity of the armpit. A small incision round the areola or under the breast is the least visible in the long term, so that one can hardly tell that you have implants.
When will I be able to see the final result?
The healing process lasts at least 3-6 months. The final result will only be visible after this time.
Can a breast implant cause cancer?
No. No other type of implant (hip, knee, etc.) has been the subject of so much research to demonstrate its safety as breast implants have. Dozens of studies have been performed in multiple countries. Seven long-term studies have also been conducted that show that there is no connection between breast cancer, autoimmune diseases or system diseases.
