Abstract :

Introduction: Breast enlargement remains one of the most popular plastic surgical procedures worldwide. Many different implant types, shapes and consistencies are available, as well as different pocket planes. However, given the choice, one need to truly understand how to utilize the variables of access, pocket plane, and implant shape in order to achieve the best result from case to case. Methods: We routinely utilize inframmary and periareolar approaches. The implant pocket can be subglandular, submuscular or dual plane depending on the requirements. Anatomical or round implants are used of different gel types and projections. If needed, a lifting procedure can be performed simultaneously. In this lecture we will show how to access and plan the right combination of above mentioned variables for different preoperative findings. Potential pitfalls and how to avoid them will also be discussed. Results/ Discussion: The breast augmentation has two aspects. On the one hand it seems to be an easy to medium level surgery regarding the difficulty, on the other hand one needs expert skills to achieve superior results consistently. Each patient requires an individualized approach, a clear understanding of the possibilities and boundaries, as well as the limits. A one-techniquefor- all approach is an anachronism which rarely leads to the desired outcome.
