Breast augmentation with saline or silicone breast implants in Gainesville, Florida by Dr. John W. Tyrone involves placement of an implant behind the breast. Candidates for breast augmentation include women who seek to augment the size of their breast because they feel their breast size is too small, to correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss, and to balance a difference in breast size. The breast implant is placed in a pocket created between the breast tissue and the underlying pectoralis muscle (subglandular) or beneath the pectoralis muscle (submuscular). The breast implant is most commonly placed through minimal incisions located either in the fold beneath the breast (inframammary) or at the junction of the areola with the skin of the breast (periareolar). By inserting an implant behind each breast, Dr. Tyrone is able to enhance a woman's bust line by one or more bra cup sizes. Most patients choose to have their breast implants placed through the inframammary or periareolar approach as these incisions provide the surgeon with the most precise control over implant placement.
