The balance between opposing forces of removal of excess and ptotic breast skin and the addition of breast volume is a careful one. The ultimate goal is to design the breast with sufficient skin tension to fight the tendency of recurrent ptosis and laxity without jepardizing blood and nerve supply. Please refer to the augmentation section for specific questions regarding augmentation in general. The choice of type of implant is an individual one. If the patient has a significant history of breast feeding, I prefer to use a textured implant. I believe that the textured surface has a lower risk of forming a capsular contracture. Breast feeding may pose a risk of colonization with local skin flora within the breast tissue. It is for this reason that breast augmentation should not be performed within 6 months of breast feeding. If the lateral and inferior poles of the breast have thin skin and the breast tissue itself lacks density, it is probably better to use a silicone jel implant in order to avoid early or later rippling. Rippling refers to the feeling of a palpable irregular edge of the implant through the skin. It is for this reason that the textured round silicone implants have become increasingly popular over the last year in my practice.
