Pros and Cons of Different Types of Breast Implants

Enquiry Form

If you are one who is not happy with your breast and are planning to get your breast augmentation surgery done, then it is possible that many thought processes must be going on in your mind. Hence, I have come to your rescue with all the knowledge that I have acquired, through reading books or online, I have drafted this small blog for your help, so go ahead and go through this and in case of any further queries you can comment below, we are more than delighted to help our valuable readers:

Mammary Crease

This can be found below the breast, in the fold or crease, the place where the breast meets the chest. If a mammary crease is made, a breast implant can be fitted above or below the intimate muscle. Surgeons advise women for getting  mammary fold to give a cut because since it is placed close  to breast it allows doctors  for controlling bleeding in a much better way  ( in case of any) during the surgery)

In case you plan of changing the size of implants in the future, the mammary cut will not be reused, and a different one will have to be made. It also proves damaging to milk ducts.  Hence not suitable for younger mom’s who wish to breastfeed their babies.


This is gaining fame by women who want smaller implants. Since the armpit has a natural fold or crease, it makes it easy for surgeons to make the cut, make a medium to the breast area, and then proceed for the implant. Many women also prefer this to other surgeries, because there is no touching of breasts and since no touching is involved, there is no scar. But, a transmural or transaxillary cannot be reused, so in case of any second breast augmentation is needed in future, a new incision will have to take place.

Tuba Breast Augmentation

A transumbilical incision (TUBA) is a very popular incision implant and is done by giving insertions via navel which goes to breast, after which they are puffed up. This is preferred by patients because the scar which is there is not seen, since it is under the abdomen, but many surgeons advise against doing this because it has to be worked much away from breasts, which makes it difficult to get natural results.
