Detecting implant ruptures
Breast implants whether saline filled or silicone gel filled are not lifetime devices. On average they last about 10-12 years. With saline implants detecting when the shell has broken is easy because the saline leaks out and your body resorbs it and the implant deflates.
You will then notice a size and shape asymmetry compared to the opposite breast. Therefore, detecting rupture of a saline implant is not silent and no testing is needed other than a simple visual examination.
With silicone gel implants, the gel is not resorbed and therefore there is no change in size or shape of your breast. The rupture can be “silent” and you may not know for some time.
An examination by your surgeon is not accurate and you may have no symptoms. Currently the best method is an MRI examination. The FDA recommendation is to undergo the MRI every other year starting postop year 3.
You can discuss with your surgeon how often to have the MRI performed. Of course if you do have symptoms such as shape change, firmness, pain or any other changes, you should see your surgeon and discuss getting an MRI for evaluation.
Estimating bra cup size following breast augmentation or enlargement with implants
This is an average 1. 5 to 2 cup size increase in the typical scenario your describe. However, as you know, different bra designers vary widely in their standards for cup size and design.
What size implant to use
I do not recommend that you have a plastic surgeon “choose” what size implant for you. Based on your measurements and a sizing system of some type, you should choose a range. You may need into the high 400’s to get your desired volume.
Choosing the right implant size
If you are a thin woman so I agree with placement in the submuscular position. I have all of my patients actually size with the implants by trying them on in a sports bra once the appropriate dimensional implant is chosen.
I tell patients that the less breast tissue you have, the better the idea of what to expect is seen in your sizing. The difference between 200 and 175cc is nominal and you most likely would not appreciate a difference between the 2 (certainly not enough to change a bra size).
I think your plastic surgeon is on the mark with you being thin and very physically active. A smaller moderat profile implant would be what I would suggest for you.
Pregnancy Stretch marks
Breast implants after Pregnancy have been known to be relatively safe and do not cause mayor complications. Like with everything there are exceptions. The type of implants and the age of the implant, as well as other health factors must also be taken into consideration but for the most part they are negligible.
Natural looking breast implants
When choosing a breast implant, there are several considerations. First is your own body and breast tissue. Second, is the desired result. If you have thin breast tissue, then you have a higher chance of having obviously operated looking breasts.
If you have a fair among of existing breast tissue, then the implants will be less obvious. High profile implants will project further for a given volume. These tend to look less natural than a moderate profile or a moderate profile plus model.
Do I need a lift?
It appears that your nipple is below the crease of your breast. As a general rule if the position of the nipple is below the breast crease then you would benefit from a breast lift.
In my opinion you would have a much nicer result with a breast lift. In your case I think the best options would be to do a breast lift with or without implants.
Gummy bear implants cost $6750 (same price as “regular” silicone gel implants)
We charge $6750 for breast augmentation with silicone gel implants, regardless of whether they are cohesive implants or highly cohesive (gummy bear) implants. This includes the surgical fee, M. D. anesthesiologist, our nationally accredited outpatient surgical facility (located on the campus of Presbyterian Hospital of Plano), and all follow-up appointments.
I have many patients in their 50’s and 60’s who undergo breast augmentation or lift with implants for the first time. Make sure you are doing this for yourself and not for a boyfriend, husband or significant other.
This is something you do for yourself to look and feel better about. Of course you should check with your internist to be sure you have no medical problems that would prevent you from having surgery.
Filling out your breast
I would certainly recommend a mastopexy (breast lift). This will raise the breast into a more youthful position on the chest and give the breast a more rounded shape.
There is a possibility that you may be happy with just a breast lift without an implant, however, if you are looking to increase the size of your breast as well, then an augmentation would certainly help with that.
Breast Implant Choice in Tall Women
Although physically speaking large implants can be stuffed into many womenof various heights and dimensions, that does not mean that by doing so we would achieve attractive and, more importantly, long lasting attractive results. For an augmented breast to look attractive, the native breast tissue envelope must accommodate and cover the underlying implant.
If the implant size exceeds the the dimension s of the breast cover, the breast would look very round, fake looking with visible and palpable ripples which rapidly sag in short order. 700-500cc implants are among the largest produced and very few women look “natural” in them.
The vast majority of such implants are placed in entertainers. I would seriously recommend you obtain a secon opinion from a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Age 51 is not too old for breast implants. General good health, realistic expectations, and a thorough understanding of the surgery and recovery are much more important than chronological age in making a decision to proceed.
It would be best to discuss your interest with a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Is it possible that I can get an augmentation without a breast lift?
I believe you would benefit the most from a lift and implants, and you would likely need a vertical mastopexy and augmentation (lollipop incision with implants). You could have large implants placed and/or have the implants placed lower on your chest to create a somewhat aesthetic breast; however, I do not think you will be happy with the end result.
Over or under the muscle
You will get varying opinions from plastic surgeons but my feeling is that a partially sub-muscular placement is the best opportunity for you to have a more natural appearance and to avoid the “stuck-on” look.
