What is Dual Plane Technique For Breast Augmentation?

Dual Plane Technique

Have  you been recommended to have a Dual Plane Breast Augmentation?
If you have, don’t freak out! It is becoming more common with Plastic Surgeons to recommend this technique be used when performing Breast Augmentation.

If you are researching or contemplating having Breast implant surgery there are many other decisions that you need to consider when you choose to have Breast Augmentation surgery, a lot more than you think. The question of whether to place the implant under the muscle, partial or over is the subject of much debate, with confusion and misinformation in every direction. Suffice it to say that there is no single best method that applies to every patient.

Breast Implant Placement Options

Breast Implant Placement Options

Until recently we knew of only Two techniques of breast augmentation in Thailand, the sub-glandular and sub-muscular implant placement techniques. Now we hear about Dual Implant placement, which is a combination of sub-glandular and sub-muscular.

Thailand Surgeons are now combining the advantages from both sub-glandular and sub-muscular placement, dual plane breast augmentation provides a slight breast lift and a natural breast appearance. Because no technique is perfect and has its advantages and disadvantages, each new technique is launched in order to offer something new.

Each of the implant pocket locations has specific benefits and indications, but each also has unique tradeoffs in specific breast types

Dual Plane Breast Implant Placement for Breast Augmentation client presents  a technique that allow two pocket planes (dual plane) to be developed in a single patient, adjusting the implant and tissue relationships to ensure adequate soft-tissue coverage while optimizing implant–soft-tissue dynamics, to offer increased benefits and fewer tradeoffs compared with a single pocket location in a wide range of breast types.

It is best if you look at the image on the below. Here you will see the above part of the breast implant is covered by the pectoralis major muscle and the lower part of the muscle fascia (a thin tissue that covers the muscle)

How Dual Plane Implant Placement Works
During a dual plane breast augmentation, the pectoralis major muscle is released onto two planes. First, the bottom of the muscle is released from the chest wall; next, the overlying breast tissue is partially released from the muscle. This allows the top portion of the implant to be covered by both breast tissue and pectoral muscle while the remainder of the implant is covered by breast tissue only.

The exact degree to which the muscle is released from the breast tissue is determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on the patient’s anatomy and esthetic goals. The fact that the dual plane technique can be adjusted to achieve optimal implant placement for each individual makes it a superior choice for most Thailand breast augmentation patients.


Why Should I have a Dual Plane technique when I have my Breast Augmentation?

  1. Less complications, such as the formation of capsular contracture. A complication that concerns 1-20% of women who have been submitted to breast augmentation surgery. By placing the implant below the muscle and the fascia you can minimise the implant’s contact with the mammary gland. This is a manoeuvre that can possibly minimise the formation of capsular contracture.
  2. A natural result particular for thin patients with very small breasts. This can be achieved as the upper part of the implant is then covered by the muscle.3. The possibility of implant dropping is reduced. The muscle and fascia secure the implant and keep it in the right position.4. You will avoid malformations to the implant due to the strength exercised by the pectoralis major (as is the case in the submuscular technique). The so-called “open breast” abnormality.5. The possibility of palpating the implant’s borders is reduced.

    6. No wrinkles are formed on the upper part of the body.

How Does a The Surgeon Determine which Breast Implant Placement is tight for me?

Final determination of what implant position is best for each patient must follow a complete evaluation of several factors:

  • The patient’s individual anatomy, inc: thickness of tissues and the degree  of sway in breast
  • The patient’s desire regarding volume increase
  • The patient’s lifestyle, inc: the exercise routine
  • The patient’s personal history of breast disease

Will it cost me more to have the Dual Plane technique?
In most situations, you will be charged slightly more when you choose to have a Dual Plane Breast Augmentation over a having your implant placement under or over the muscle. As explained above there is a lot more involved to ensure a positive outcome in creating not one but two implant pockets.

In Thailand, a Breast Augmentation with the implant placed either above or behind the cost would be approx $4000 AUD and if choosing to have a Dual Plane Augmentation you can expect to pay $200-300 more.

Breast Feeding After Breast Implants

Breast Feed with Implants

You might be planning to breastfeed your baby when born. If you are considering having Breast Implants in Thailand prior to having your baby, there will be many questions to ask. You may wonder if breastfeeding is possible if you have breast implants and if so, will your implants have an effect on your ability to breastfeed and the amount of milk you can produce. Finding the answers and preparing yourself will help you make better decisions about breastfeeding with implants.

Below is an excerpt from a BabyCenter.org article that explains some crucial issues raised by breastfeeding after breast augmentation.

Can I breastfeed?
Most likely. It depends on the kind of surgery you had, but most approaches are compatible with breastfeeding. Incisions made under the fold of the breast or through the armpit shouldn’t cause any trouble. A “smile” incision around the areola increases your risk of having breastfeeding problems.

You won’t know exactly how your milk supply has been affected by breast augmentation surgery until you try to nurse. If you still have feeling in the nipple, you have a much better chance of having a full milk supply.

If you’re able to produce only a portion of the breast milk your baby needs, you’ll need to supplement with formula or donor milk.

Most mothers who have had breast surgery can breastfeed, at least to some extent. Some find that they:

  • Can breastfeed adequately (i.e., without the need to supplement).
  • A galactagogue might help (depending on the reason for a small supply)
  • Can partially breastfeed (i.e., with the need to supplement somewhat).

There is no clear way of knowing before the birth that of the above groups a mother, who has had breast surgery will fit within. How the surgery was done can impact upon how it may affect breastfeeding. For example, breast reduction surgery is more likely to cause milk supply problems as compared to breast augmentation surgery. It is particularly the case if the nipple was moved to a new position during the surgery as this disrupts the nerve supply to the nipple and areola.

What else should I know about my breast augmentation procedure, If I want to Breast Feed?

When you breastfeed, you can expect your breast skin to become looser. Thus, there’s the possibility that the implant-breast relationship will change. Some women will experience negligible change, but there are those who will see that the position of the implant has changed considerably.
What can I do if the implant’s positions changed after breastfeeding?
You have plenty of options for restoring your breast’s pre-baby appearance. One of the most popular options is a breast uplift procedure. Surgeons highly recommended that you wait six months after you finish breastfeeding before you undergo this type of restorative procedure for your breasts. A consultation with a Shreveport breast augmentation surgeon will provide you with the best information on how to proceed with your implant-related concerns.

Breast Implants and Tummy Tuck Overseas Popularity

Thailand Breast Implant package

In a report released on news.com.au 9th Janurary 2015, it was reported in their story “It is estimated that around 15,000 Australians are heading overseas for breast enhancements and tummy tucks costing $300 million every year”. This was part of a Health Check Survey on Australians, conducted by Medibank. The survey revealed that half of all Young Adults worried more about their body shape than a healthy life style. This poor self image it would appear has young adults looking for quick solutions, thus where Cometic Surgery come in.

Due to the high cost of Cosmetic Surgery prices in Australia, Australians have for many years travelled overseas for Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand. Breast Implant surgery in Australia costs range from $8000 up to $15,000 with many Queensland and Sydney surgeons. These cost are just the Plastic Surgeon fees and do not include Hospital and theatre fees. It also does not include the anesthetist fee, medication, post surgery garments or check up appointments. It is when Australian realise all the associated cost in having Cosmetic surgery in Australia that the average person financial is unable to proceed. Although they still want the surgery financial they are unable to commit to having the surgery in Australia.

This is when they start shopping around and researching other options. When typing into google “Breast Implant Cost” many of the paid advertisements at the top of search results are for agencies like Destiny Meditravel who offer to coordinate having surgery in Thailand. When someones sees the cost of Breast Implant Surgery in Thailand for as little as $4000 or the offer of $5550 packages that include flights, hotel and surgery it then goes back to being affordable.

The $4000 for Breast Implant Surgery at Phuket International Hospital is all inclusive of everything surgery related including a compression garment for post surgery recovery. All hospital fees, meals, checkups and take home medications are included in the one cost, preventing any hidden cost occurring. Knowing this information it is little wonder that Australian are heading to Thailand for surgery instead of opting to pay the excessive high fees in Australia.

Why Women Have Breast Implants?

Why Have Breast Implants

Why do women choose to get breast implants? It’s the number one cosmetic surgery in the U.S., even though it carries with it the burden of judgment and dismissal. So what’s driving these women? Are they young and insecure? Superficial? Desperate?

The answers might surprise you.

Of the 300,000 implant procedures in the U.S. in 2013 (up 37% since 2000 and still rising), the breakdown by age, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, goes like this:

2013 ASAP Breast Augmentations, by Age

13-19 — 8,234

20-29 — 83,638

30-39 — 105,877

40-54 — 85,516

55+ — 6,934

Note the largest group: 30 to 39-year-old women. Not recent graduate from Uni. Not porn stars. Not young women on the prowl.

Most 30 to 39-year-olds are in the middle of their childbearing years. Many lose breast volume after pregnancy and aren’t happy with the way their boobs hang after major weight loss. There’s no way to get breast volume back, short of breast implants — no exercises or muscles that build them back up. So these women turn to implants to restore their original, and now lost, shape and size. They’re called “mummy makeovers,” breast implants combined with tummy tucks and liposuction.

Of the 85,000-plus procedures among the middle-aged population, 40-54, one can assume it has to do with staving off the march of time. There were also 92,000-plus eyelid surgeries in that age bracket. Of the nearly equal number of procedures among women in their 20s, statistics demonstrate that in that age group, 69,000 surgeries had to do with nose reshaping. So yes, there may be definite body dissatisfaction in this demographic, but it’s not just about breasts.

It’s hard to miss the media outrage over boob jobs handed out as high school graduation gifts. But, again, let’s look at the stats: board-certified plastic surgeonswon’t perform breast augmentations on women under 22, since breast tissue isn’t considered fully developed until that time (though breasts can and do change in size and shape all the way through lactation and past menopause).

Even the FDA doesn’t recommend breast implants for patients under 18. Yet sometimes such procedures are necessary for young women — to correct severe breast asymmetry, genetic chest deformities, or extreme under-development. And to put that 8,000 number above in perspective, nearly 6,000 young men in the same 13- to 19-year-old age group had breast-reduction surgery for gynecomastia (male breast enlargement) that same year. Another 30,000 teens (not broken down by sex) also had nose jobs. It’s likely that with young people these events are often more corrective and remedial than solely cosmetic.

Why do women want way bigger breasts?

What is extreme and what is “normal”? Women’s bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and their breasts don’t stay the same. Bra fitters and the intimate-apparel industry know the true size of women’s breasts, and bodies are rarely perfectly proportional. Some tiny women inherit outsized breasts, which make a much larger statement. Turns out that deep-cup bras with smaller bands (28 to 32 backs with DD to J cups) are the fastest-growing segment of the bra industry. These new sizes aren’t being marketed to young women with breast implants.

Breast implants aren’t measured by cup size but by cubic centimeter. Plastic surgeons know that a 300cc implant on one woman’s frame will look quite different on a taller or wider body. Look through the forums and you’ll find plenty of breast augmentation patients who go from a B to a C cup or a D — hardly super-sizing, although there are always extreme cases. And there’s only so much physical room to place an implant under skin or muscle. You can find plenty of examples of badly botched oversized boob jobs if you search “breast implant photos.” So no; most women who get breast implants are not shooting for the moon.

Isn’t it about getting male attention and approval?

Numerous studies attempting to show male preference for one size of breasts over another all seem to contradict one other. A 2013 article in Psychology Today cited a study that men who were poor and/or hungry tended to favor women with larger breasts (as did men interested in fatherhood), while men higher on the socio-economic scale, men who’d just had a meal, and men forestalling fatherhood tended to go for a smaller-breasted ideal. Another study claims sexist men prefer bigger boobs. Many larger busted women aren’t thrilled with the unwanted attention paid to their breast size. The bottom line? Men like breasts. They just do.

Shouldn’t women accept their breasts the way they are?

What is it about women’s breasts that make their surgical alteration more shocking than all the nose jobs, eye jobs, and facelifts combined? It’s hard to say. But women aren’t complaining, and report higher self-esteem an self-confidence after surgeries.

Some new enhancement procedures even use a woman’s own fat to build up her breast tissue (goodbye implants). Breast lifts (aka breast mastopexy) are outpacingbreast implants and have jumped by over 70%, with some 90,000 choosing the procedure in 2013.*** There were also 40,000 women who had breast reductions and 24,000 who had breast implant removal surgeries the same year. It’s safe to say women are choosing to control their breasts with surgery.

Isn’t it a matter of personal preference (combined with disposable income to fund plastic surgery)? If a woman wants to adjust the size or shape of her boobs, who are we — or anyone, for that matter — to judge otherwise?


Mummy Make Over -Post Baby Surgery Cost

mummy make over thailand

How you feel as a mum is integral to the strength of your family. There is nothing wrong with wanting to feel youthful, sexy, and confident after having your babies. Having a positive self-image certainly benefits you, but it also can improve your interactions with loved ones. You deserve to feel as wonderful as you truly are, and that’s exactly the philosophy behind  having a Mummy Makeover in Thailand where you get to rest, relax and be pampered after surgery.

You may feel like there are a lot of decisions to be made if you want to proceed with having surgery, and not just about the procedure itself we find that most patients also have concerns about kids, finances, and so much more.

What is a Mummy Makeover?
A Mummy Makeover is a combination of surgical procedures designed to restore a women’s body after pregnancy and childbirth or even after weight loss. The procedures are often performed all at once. The goal is to focus on those areas that are most impacted by childbearing, including the breasts, tummy, and waistline.

What are my procedure options for a Mummy Makeover in Thailand?
The surgical options vary greatly from person to person and will depend on your personal goals. Most women choose to combine breast and body procedures such as liposuction, tummy tuckbreast augmentation, or breast lift for their Mummy Makeovers. Others are more interested in facial rejuvenation techniques such as face lift or eyelid surgery. Our Thailand surgeons will help you choose the appropriate treatments to meet your needs.

How soon can I have a Mummy Makeover Surgery Package after giving birth?
Your body should be as close to “normal” as possible before having your Mummy Makeover. That means you should be at a steady weight for 3 months and be engaged in a regular fitness routine and healthy diet. You should also wait 6 to 12 months after breastfeeding so that your breasts return to normal. It is no point going through the surgery whilst your body is still changing. You want to be able to get the best results from your surgeries and this can only be achieved when your body has ceased changing.

What are the costs of having a Mummy Make Over in Thailand?
The finances associated with any surgery are integral in any decision to have surgery, more so when you are looking at having multiple procedures. When having a Mummy Make Over in Thailand you will need to also factor in the recovery time need which may be up to 17 Days and travel cost. An average cost of flights from Australia and a 18 day Hotel package would be $2000 AUD.

Breast Augmentation (Round Gel) 115,000 (under 500cc) $3,833 9 Nights
Breast Lift with Implant (round) 210,000 $7,000 16 Nights
Tummy Tuck (Standard) 165,000 $5,400 16 Nights
Tummy Tuck +2 Area Liposuction 190,000 $6,300 16 Nights

Common Mummy Make Over Surgery Options

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
If you’re a mum, you know the reality: that having a baby changes your body in ways that can’t always be erased with diet and exercise. No matter how long it’s been since you delivered, no matter how hard you’ve worked to get back in shape, if your abdomen still won’t completely retract, don’t blame yourself. Once skin and muscle have been stretched from pregnancy, they frequently will not return to their pre-pregnancy form

Breast Lift

Stretched and sagging breasts are common after childrearing, but they don’t have to be a requirement of motherhood. Many mothers just like you have made the choice to get back their beautiful, perky pre-baby breasts. It’s easier than ever – and can help you look better than ever in a dash with breast lift surgery. Read our article on if you need a breast lift here

Breast Augmentation

Although most mums are well aware of the way pregnancy changes a woman’s body, many are surprised to find that their breasts look smaller after having kids. This is not uncommon, especially among women who breast feed. To restore lost fullness, or to create the volume you’ve always wanted, as part of mummy make over you may be offered breast augmentation.

Top 3 Breast Implant Warranties

Breast Implant Warranty

One of the things anyone contemplating having Breast Implants should include as part of their initial research is “What Warranties and Guarantee does the Breast Implant company offer”. With the recent issues with the PIP implants you need to know that you are well covered. By asking your surgeon what implants they will use enables you to also question the guarantees and do your own research. You need to know if they are limited or lifetime warranties and what conditions may apply.

Each company will have standard conditions that surgery is preformed by appropriately qualified, licensed surgeons and that they were inserted in accordance with company insert instructions. There will also be situations where they will not be covered such as capsular contracture, wrinkling or rippling.

To save you some time we have done a bit of research on your behalf on Breast Implant warranties from the top 3 most used suppliers of implants who are FDA Approved.



Offer limited warranties dependant on the date of the surgery and type of implant use. You can use the Warranty Selector on their site to confirm. The main implants currently used are Silicone Gel-Filled Breast Implants that have a “Patient Safe Limited Warranty” This includes a lifetime product replacement policy,automatically applied to all recipients of Mentor Breast Implants.

If the implant has been compromised or removed in anyway to change the size or style of the implant


The information we have gathered is all subject to individual conditions and we advise that prior to making a decision on which implants you would like to have that you read and understand the Breast Implant Warranties for you all Breast  Implants.

Breast Implant Surface, Shapes and Profiles

breast implant surface, shape and profile

Until recently, most patients never discussed breast implant shapes or profiles with their plastic surgeons. If you chose a certain size breast implant, you would receive a predetermined amount of forward projection from that size implant. Now, you can choose a breast implant size and, if you like, have that size implant stick out more or less than the base diameter would usually dictate. Choosing breast implant shape may seem complicated since manufacturers have so many styles in their lineups. However, it’s really only a matter of making two choices. The first choice is the breast implant shape; the second choice is the implant profile. Shape refers to the actual shape of the implant, round or anatomical. Profile refers to the distance the implant projects off the chest wall. The third Choice is the the surface of the implant


round and smooth implantsBecause women’s breasts take many sizes and shapes, and because goals for breast enhancement vary from patient to patient, there are different breast implant shapes available. For some women, the round breast implant provides the best results; for others, a better choice is an implant shaped like a teardrop. The appearance of breasts is highly affected by breast implant shapes.


Considerations include:

  • The patient’s body type
  • The amount of breast tissue the patient has.
  • Breast implant placement
  • Surgical incision choice

Round Breast Implants

Of the two breast implant shapes, the round breast implant is the most common type used for breast augmentation. A round breast implant is shaped like a flattened sphere. Certain types of round implants can enhance the forward projection of the breasts, which would otherwise require larger breast implants with wider bases. For women who desire fullness in the upper poles of their breasts, the round breast implant is a good choice.

Many women choose round implants because they tend to provide the greatest amount of lift, fullness, and cleavage. Some women, however, feel that the results produced with round implants appear artificial, so they seek out more natural-looking alternatives. A round breast implant can have a smooth or textured surface. Due to a round implant’s symmetrical shape, it does not pose the risk of implant rotation. The cost of a round breast implant is generally less than a teardrop(contoured) breast implant.

Tear Drop Breast Implants

As the name indicates, a teardrop breast implant, also known as a contoured breast implant, is shaped like a teardrop. Breasts attain a more gently sloping contour with teardrop breast implants. Although the upper poles of breasts that have teardrop implants are not as full as those of breasts that have round implants, teardrop-shaped implants often provide greater projection by volume. Of the two breast implant shapes, a teardrop breast implant is more expensive than a round breast implant, a consideration for those concerned with breast augmentation cost. A teardrop implant requires a textured surface to prevent rotation because, with teardrop implants, breasts can become distorted if the implant rotates. This is not a concern with round breast implants.


smooth and textured breast implantsAfter you have made the choice to have breast implant surgery, you must decide between two breast implant texture options: smooth and textured. On this page, we describe the differences between the two types to provide you with a better understanding so you can make an informed decision.

There is great debate amongst surgeons which is better. Some studies have shown fewer complications – specifically capsular contraction – with textured implants, but others have shown the opposite. The shells of both saline and silicone gel breast implants are made of silicone elastomer (rubber), and the surface area is either smooth or textured. The main purpose of textured implants is to promote tissue adherence to the irregular surface and hold them into place. Therefore, a textured surface is used with contoured implants because they have a top and bottom, and rotation or movement distorts the breast shape. On the other hand, most round implants have a smooth surface because the breast shape is not affected if the implant rotates in the breast pocket.


Smooth Breast Implants

Smooth implants are used in roughly 90 percent of breast augmentation surgeries today. A smooth breast implant is able to move freely in the breast pocket in which it is placed. Many women  eel that smooth implants have a more natural feel and appearance than textured implants. Smooth implants usually have thinner shells than textured implants, which makes them the softer choice of the two. Additional benefits of a smooth breast implant include implant longevity, lower patient cost, and reduced risk of rippling.

Textured Implant

It was originally thought that the textured surface of an implant could reduce the possibility of capsular contracture, a potential complication of breast implants. However, because evidence is not clear and there is no consensus as to whether a textured breast implant actually reduces the possibility of capsular contracture, many doctors prefer to use smooth, round implants. Smooth implants are often placed under muscle tissue in order to help avoid possible capsular contracture.

Textured breast implants have an irregular surface that is intended to hold the implant in place. The scar tissue that naturally forms around the implant conforms to the textured surface and “grabs” the implant to prevent it from being displaced or turning in the pocket, which could result in distortion of the breast shape. A textured surface is used with contoured implants to prevent movement because the teardrop shape is distorted if any rotation occurs. Textured implants were designed to lessen the risk of capsular contracture, which is an excessive contraction of the scar capsule that surrounds the implant, by preventing scar tissue from forming around the implant in a uniform manner. However, studies have proven inconclusive and no firm evidence exists to support the theory that textured implants reduce the risk of capsular contracture.

If a patient requires implant removal due to capsular contracture or another complication, it may be more difficult for the surgeon to remove the implant because of the adherence of tissue to the textured surface. The shells of textured breast implants are slightly thicker than smooth implants.Textured implants are more firm and carry an increased risk of rippling that is visible or can be felt through the skin, especially for women with smaller breasts. There is also a small increase in the chance that the implant shell will rupture.


When breast augmentation patients meet with their Thailand surgeons to discuss the many implant options that are available to them, they not only need to decide on a specific sized implant, but determine the amount of forward projection that is appropriate for the patient as well. In the past, implants came with a standard projection, or profile, based on the size of the implant that women choose. Today, surgeons and patients can work together to select an implant that is not only the right size, but also provides the desired projection and cleavage.The most important criterion for profile selection is the base diameter of the breast.

This is easily measured by the surgeon with a calipers or measuring tape. The implant diameter must be less than the breast base, or it will be “squeezed” circumstantially. This will force it to scallop, or ripple around the outer edge, creating a range of other problems. Among these is visible rippling; It has been observed of much less rippling since the high profile implants became available, because the base diameter can be matched more precisely.

Low Profile Breast Implant

low profile implantThe low profile implant shell is wider (larger diameter) and flatter (less height or depth) than moderate profile breast implants. This implant style is commonly used for women who have a wide broad chest frame. The extra width of the implant shell will fill the chest anatomy correctly, achieving a natural look and realistic cleavage. The implant will not project as far off the body as other implant styles, making it the right choice for women who want fullness, but not an overly round and obviously enhanced look. The main criteria used to select low profile implants are the base diameter of the breast and dimensions of the chest. The implant should be smaller than the base diameter of the natural breast mound, which is often substantial in wider framed women.

Moderate Profile Breast Implant

Moderate Plus Profile Breast Implant

Moderate plus implants are a half step compromise between traditional moderate profile implants and popular new high profile implants. The moderate plus profile is perfect for women who want a bit more projection than is typically provided by a moderate profile, but not as much projection as is found with the high profile shell.

Moderate plus describes the distance the implant will project off the chest wall, once they are surgically placed inside the breast.

High Profile Breast Implant

High profile breast implants are a great innovation in breast implant design. First available in the early 1990’s, high profile implants have filled the specific needs of many patients perfectly, helping them to achieve a pleasing breast esthetics and an extremely natural shape and contour. High profile implants have also become a favorite of many cosmetic surgeons and are recommended to many patients due to their excellent surgical results.

High profile implants project the further off the chest wall, when compared to other common implant profiles. The high profile implant will achieve this projection by having a smaller base diameter than an identically sized (in cc’s) moderate or low profile implant shell. By decreasing the diameter of the shell, but keeping the same fill volume, the manufacturer is able to increase the depth or forward projection.

High profile implants are perfect for women with a narrower chest frame who still want a considerable size increase during their breast augmentation surgery. Instead of using a wider base diameter moderate implant, the doctor will choose a narrower high profile shell which will suit the patient’s anatomy and project out to accommodate the volume of the filler material. High profile implants are also commonly indicated for patients who are undergoing a combination breast enlargement and donut mastopexy procedure. This modified mastopexy, like many breast lift operations sometimes squares off the breast shape slightly, making it appear wider and less round. The shape of the high profile implant shell restores the rounded shape of the breast, while still allowing the considerable benefits of the mastopexy lift.

While some studies say that these high profile shells reduce visible wrinkling and rippling, the reasoning given is generally incorrect. It is not anything to do with the design of the implant which decreases this noticeable unwanted breast enlargement complication. it is simply a better anatomical fit. Wrinkling and rippling often occurs when a women with a narrow chest frame desires large implants. The base diameter of her natural breasts is smaller than the base diameter of her implants. Obviously, the implant will be compressed and distorted by the small confines of the pocket inside her breast. This distortion causes the wrinkling and rippling which can be so unappealing to many affected patients. By utilizing a proper fitting high profile implant with a base diameter smaller than the natural breast width, the surgeon can guarantee a good fit with no implant shell distortion. The patient’s size request is accommodated by the increase in forward projection creating a flawless augmented, butvery natural looking breast.

Ultra High Profile

Ultra high breast implantUltra High Profile implants available are through Mentor, this implant provides the narrowest base and highest projection. They are only available in Round shape and up to 495cc. Ultra High profile implants are perfect for women with a narrower chest frame who still want a considerable size increase during their breast augmentation surgery. Instead of using a wider base diameter implant, the doctor may choose the ultra high profile if the high profile is not enough projection. This may suit the patient’s anatomy and project out to be able accommodate the volume of the filler material.

There are two ways to increase projection in an implant. The first way is to add more volume to the implant. The other way to add projection is to make the base (diameter) of the implant smaller. Thus for any given volume, a smaller base has more projection. This is what ‘high profile’ implants do—they have a smaller diameter with a higher projection.


4 Reason to Have Breast Implants

Reason to Have Breast Surgery

Now just to be clear from the onset, having small boobs isn’t really all that bad, thats why I told myself before I had Breast Implants in Thailand 9 Years ago anyway. I would tell myself that Fitted tees fit better, you won’t have to carry excess baggage, and people will actually look you in the eyes when you speak. It just so happens that there will always be moments when you want… more.

Hand Ups

Hands up if you ever wanter bigger boobs

All to often you’ll encounter any of these below top 5 problems that are so frustrating, it could tempt any flat-chested girl to get breast augmentation surgery. Now we are being honest, Hands up if you can relate to any of these five issues commonly faced by grown women with small chests.

  1. People Think you are Younger – Come to think of it that cannot be a bad option!The fact remains, however, that it can be a bit of a hassle to constantly asked for ID when you enter a bar, order alcohol, or even go into movies not meant for kids. Then to top to off if you have younger cousins or sisters, maybe even nieces, who are ‘bigger boobed’ than you, it raises that awkward question of… Who’s the big girl here?”

  2. The Bra has nothing to fill it – What is the point of wearing a bra when you barely have anything on your chest that needs supporting
  3. Some Clothes May you look like a boy -This is a lot worse than calling a friends newborn Baby Girl dressed in a pale Green jumpsuit a Baby Boy. Even worse  upon seeing a photo of you on Facebook  when your hair is/was particularly short. Wearing clothes that are only slightly unfeminine, like a comfy t-shirt and jeans, will make you look more of a prepubescent boy than a woman who simply likes to wear comfortable clothes.
  4. You have to have a flatter Tummy Than you Chest – Because if you don’t you’ll look like a lizard otherwise. Having no boobs at all is one thing, but if your stomach juts out farther than your chest, well – nothing is really more unattractive than that. Need we say more?

If those listed above and other flat-chested problems become too much to bear and you come to a point where you fear having to go without a push-up bra, don’t bother wearing a bra or just scared your chickenfillets may pop out in the middle of a hockey game then  breast augmentation may be the answer to end your woes. Have Breast Implant in Phuket will cost you $3900 AUD add in a 4 star hotel for 9 nights and flights and for less than $5500 you have a 9 day holiday and Breast Implants. What more could a girl ask for!
