Breast Shape Influences Implants Surgery
Breast Implant Shape Influences
A woman’s natural breast shape is a vital factor in determining how the breasts will look following a breast augmentation cosmetic surgery. During the pre-operative consultation, an experienced breast surgeon will apprise the patient of this unique aspect so that the patient forms a better understanding of potential results of breast augmentation in her case.
Dr. Brian J. Parker is a highly trained and experienced plastic surgeon providing various procedures for the breast, body and face. Dr. Parker believes that best outcomes in breast augmentation can be achieved when the procedure is customized in accordance with the natural breast shape and taking into account the patient’s personal aesthetic goals. He provides breast augmentation to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding communities.
Nipple Shape and Position
The nipples will generally be centered on the breast mound. As the breast implants are placed in the breast tissue, the nipples are likely to be projected forward. The nipples will maintain direction if they are already upward pointing. In case of outpointing nipples, the forward push will be more pronounced. During breast implant plastic surgery, the surgeon must pay attention to the nipple position and shape in order to create appealing outcomes.
Weight and Size of the Breast
Women who have an overall slim body and fairly small breasts, their augmented breast mound will mainly constitute only implants. In such cases, the cosmetic surgeon might advise the patient to choose conical or anatomically shaped implants. On the other hand, where the amount of breast tissue is reasonably high, the woman may have both the options of anatomical or round shaped implants.
Breast implants are usually available in sizes ranging from 100 cc to 1000 cc. Natural looking and proportionate outcomes can be achieved when the patient is able to select the most appropriate implant size. If the women has only very limited amount of breast tissue, extra large implants may not be advisable because it can overstretch the skin and cause implant rippling.
If the surgeon does not account for any inherent breast asymmetry in the size or shape of the breasts, the condition will remain the same even after the augmentation. On the other hand, a careful surgeon will assess the extent of asymmetry and recommend differently sized implants for each breast in order to minimize the degree of asymmetry.
Implant position may have to be adjusted suitably in order to improve symmetry. The breast shape variations are common, and breast implant surgery provides an opportunity to reduce or eliminate such anomalies. Dr. Parker receives patients from Las Vegas and other areas for various procedures of the breast, body, and face.
Breast Bone and Rib Cage
The shape of the breast bone and the rib cage will influence the outcome of breast implant surgery. Women with a wider breast bone and a curve shaped rib cage may have outpointing areolas on the breast mounds. This aspect should be incorporated into the surgical plan for breast augmentation in order to achieve aesthetically desirable results.
