Breast Augmentation: Advances and Options



The Story about Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedure among UK women. The main reason of the success and popularity of this cosmetic intervention is based not only on its ability to provide immediate results, but also on the progress of the technology aiming to make this procedure safer.

Here, Manchester plastic surgeon Dr. Abel Mounir would like to share with you his experience and discusses the benefits of state-of-the-art breast augmentation.

Natural Choices

Based on twenty years of experience, Dr. Abel Mounir prefers round implants for the majority of his patients even if sometimes Anatomical or the so-called tear drop implants would achieve even more natural results. Regardless of whether smooth or textured, all implants have a silicone shell made of Silicone. Each of this implant is filled with cohesive silicone materials. Dr Mounir does never use saline implants.

Patients often says that the smooth implants feel more natural. The degree of softness will depend on the degree of cohesiveness of the silicone. There are three grades of cohesiveness. The higher the grade the firmer is the implant. With saline implants. Dr Mounir may achieve a similar consistency and feel by inserting them behind the chest muscle. Smooth implants might be a good choice for those patients who have concerns about the risk of ALCL (Lymphoma).

Surgical Techniques

Uusually Breast Augmentation is performed under general anesthesia and takes approximately one hour. For most breast augmentation procedures, Dr. Mounir makes an incision in the breast crease under the breast, and inserts the implant under the pectoralis major muscle, or in some cases above this chest muscle. This is known as an inframammary incision. Peri-areolar incisions, which are made around the outer perimeter of each areola, are also commonly used in breast augmentation procedures.

A new approach used by Dr. Mounir involves the use of the Keller Funnel*, which helps him during the placement of the silicone implants in the breast pocket to keep the incision as small as possible. However, the most important when performing this technique is to reduce the manipulation of the implant and the trauma of the soft tissue. This is why this technique is also called the “no-touch technique” because it does prevent any contact with the skin during insertion of the implants.
