Guidelines on the preparation, healing, and breast massage for breast augmentation surgery in Montreal
All implantable medical devices have a limited life span after which the probability of device failure rises. While modern breast implants are very safe, they too should not be considered definitive.
I'm a saggy 36DD and would like to be a full C/small D, but I really love the fake look that implants give, so I want implants for upper pole fullness. Is this possible?
A: Implants with mastopexy are reasonable choice for the smaller breast
Implants with mastopexy are reasonable with smaller ptotic breasts with upper pole flatness. While this technique can be used with large breasts, the heavy weight of a large breast makes a recurrent deformity or "waterfall" deformity from descent of the breast tissue over the implant a potential long-term problem. In the large breast with flat upper pole, I recommend a superior pedicle breast reduction similar to that of the vertical mammoplasty as described by Lejour. Depending on your breast size and shape desires options to consider include that of a small implant versus a superior pedicle reduction mammoplasty.
