What is Breast Augmentation with Implants?


Cherie Group Medical breast augmentation gives you full, voluptuous and natural looking breasts

Breast augmentation, augmentation mammoplasty, is a procedure that enlarges breasts by inserting implants beneath the breast tissues or muscles.

Breast Augmentation Surgery by Cherie Group Medical is not a one-size-fits-all surgery. We choose implant type considering each patient’s individual conditions such as the patient’s physical form (skin thickness and elasticity, chest wall, original breast size, etc.) and the patient’s personal preference (e.g. how much bigger they want their breasts to be) so that the patient can achieve the most adequate and natural results.


HD Endoscopic Breast Augmentation

Safe and exact breast surgery using HD endoscopy technology

Every individual’s ideal breast size is different. However this doesn’t mean breasts cannot be evaluated based on objective criteria. Cherie Group Medical carries out HD endoscopic breast augmentation in adherence with objective measurement results and the patient’s body conditions. The surgical methods used depend on the person they are performed on, depending on the patient’s breast shape and condition.

What types of breast implants are available?

Saline breast implants

Saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water. Should the implant shell leak, a saline implant will collapse and the saline will be absorbed and naturally expelled by the body.

Saline breast implants provide a uniform shape, firmness and feel, and are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 18 or older.

Structured saline breast implants

Structured implants are filled with sterile salt water, and contain an inner structure which aims to make the implant feel more natural.

Silicone breast implants

Silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel. The gel feels a bit more like natural breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel may remain within the implant shell, or may escape into the breast implant pocket. A leaking implant filled with silicone gel will not collapse.

If you choose silicone implants, you may need to visit your plastic surgeon regularly to make sure the implants are functioning properly. An ultrasound or MRI screening can assess the condition of breast implants.

Silicone breast implants are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 22 or older.

Gummy bear breast implants

Form-stable implants are sometimes referred to as gummy bear breast implants because they maintain their shape even when the implant shell is broken.

The consistency of the silicone gel inside the implant is thicker than traditional silicone gel implants. These implants are also firmer than traditional implants.

Shaped gummy bear breast implants have more projection at the bottom and are tapered towards the top. If a shaped implant rotates, it may lead to an unusual appearance of the breast that requires a separate procedure to correct.

Placement of gummy bear implants requires a slightly longer incision in the skin.

Round breast implants

Round breast implants have a tendency to make breasts appear fuller than form-stable implants. Higher profile options can achieve even more projection.

Because round implants are the same shape all over, there is less concern about them rotating out of place.

Smooth breast implants

Smooth breast implants are the softest feeling. They can move with the breast implant pocket, which may give more natural movement.

Smooth implants may have some palpable or visible rippling under the skin.

Textured breast implants

Textured breast implants develop scar tissue to stick to the implant, making them less likely to move around inside of the breast and become repositioned.

Texturing offers some advantage in diminishing the risk of a tight scar capsule.
