There is a new technique for breast augmentation: the subfascial technique. With this intervention the silicone gel prosthesis is placed between the muscle and fascia, a sheet covering the muscle. The results: a more natural breast with a less painful postoperative and minor injuries.
In the sixteenth century anatomists and described as laminar fascia overlying the muscle structure.In the case of breasts, it is a sheet of very thin but resistant skin covering the breast muscle. The advance provided by the technique known as subfascial is fully respecting the female anatomy, so the breast surgical damage is minimal.
In the following illustrations you can see the location of the fascia and the pectoralis muscle:
Postoperative less painful and more natural result: subfascial technique for breast augmentation
Experts in plastic, cosmetic and restorative that began to apply this technique noted that placing the prosthesis silicone gel between the muscle and fascia, not injure the muscle, the results were more natural. It also was less postoperative pain, less swelling and inflammation, as well as a speedy recovery and return to work.
Difference between the subfascial breast augmentation technique and other
Other breast augmentation techniques, used until now, were designed in the sixties, and consisted of the placement of silicone gel prosthesis in the submuscular space or Subglandular. These techniques involve injury to the patient muscle structures: tear, rupture or detachment of the pectoralis muscle and ligament injury that hold the breast.It also was well known postoperative pain suffered by patients with these techniques: pain when moving the arms because they had injured muscle or uncomfortable drains were obliged to wear during day. Undoubtedly, the techniques were more aggressive then.
Advantages of the subfascial technique
The advantages of subfascial technique over other techniques are many:- Is Painless- No bleeding- No drains- The upper displacement of the implant is avoided- The deformity caused by contractures of the pectoral muscle is avoided- Quick Recovery- Mobilizing arms immediately
