Breast Augmentation and Reconstruction Solutions
Breast augmentation with breast implants is currently one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the world.
Clinically referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, a breast augmentation procedure is used to enlarge a naturally small breast, restore breast volume lost following pregnancy, as a result of breast-feeding or due to weight loss, achieve better symmetry when breasts are moderately disproportionate in size and shape or to enhance your self-image and self-confidence.
Breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller and to be lifted due to sagging, a breast lift may be required in conjunction with breast augmentation. Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation. Your plastic surgeon will assist you in making this decision.
Breast implants also may be used for breast reconstruction after mastectomy or injury. Breast reconstruction is achieved through several plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a breast to near normal shape, appearance and size following mastectomy.
Although breast reconstruction can rebuild your breast, the results are highly variable. A reconstructed breast will not have the same sensation and feel as the breast it replaces, visible incision lines will always be present on the breast, whether from reconstruction or mastectomy, certain surgical techniques will leave incision lines at the donor site, commonly located in less exposed areas of the body such as the back, abdomen or buttocks.
A breast implant is a prosthetic device used to correct the size, form, and texture of a woman’s breast. There are three general types of breast implant devices, defined by their filler material: saline solution, silicone gel, and composite filler. In addition, breast implants have different shape and can be round or contour profile shaped. The saline implant has a silicone shell filled with sterile saline solution; the silicone implant has a silicone shell filled with silicone gel.

Mentor’s superior saline-filled breast implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, profiles and surface textures. They are filled with a saline solution that is very similar to the fluid that makes up most of the human body. Saline implants are inserted into the body without fluid, and then filled during surgery through a fill-tube to the desired size. When the fill-tube is removed, the implant automatically seals itself.
Round breast implant, shapes are available in a wide array of sizes to accommodate various body types. Round breast implant shells come in two textures: smooth or SILTEX™.
