Breast Augmentation with Saline or Silicone Implants
Breast augmentation (breast enhancement) with saline or silicone breast implants in Gainesville, Florida by Dr. John W. Tyrone involves placement of either a saline or silicone breast implant behind the breast. Patients often desire to enhance the shape and size of their breast because they feel their breast size is too small, to correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss, and to balance a difference in breast size. The breast implant is generally placed in a pocket beneath the pectoralis muscle (submuscular breast augentation). The implant is most commonly placed through minimal incisions located either in the fold beneath the breast (inframammary or IMF incision), at the junction of the areola with the skin of the breast (periareolar incision), or through the axilla (transaxillary incision). By inserting an implant behind each breast, Dr Tyrone is able to enhance a woman’s bustline by one or more bra cup sizes. Most patients choose to have their breast implants placed through the inframammary or perioareolar approach as these incisions provide the surgeon with the most precise control over implant placement.
