Breast augmentation with silicone implants is one of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons around the world. Capsular contracture is a frequent complication in breast augmentation and reconstructive surgery, that requires invasive intervention. The inflammatory response to implanted mammary prostheses appears to be directly associated to capsular contracture. This review discusses the evidences from rat models studies, on the role of inflammation and fibrosis in capsular contraction and its relation to silicone breast implants surface...

BACKGROUND: Abdominoplasty and augmentation mastopexy are often performed in the same operation. Although silicone breast implants are usually used for breast augmentation, resected abdominal dermis fat tissue can be used for this purpose. We describe a new autologous breast augmentation technique using dermis fat grafts obtained from a simultaneous abdominoplasty operation. METHODS: This new technique was used in eight breasts of four patients who requested abdominoplasty and augmentation mastopexy operations in the same session...

UNLABELLED: Polyurethane breast implants were first introduced by Ashley (Plast Reconstr Surg 45:421-424, 1970), with the intention of trying to reduce the high incidence of capsular contracture associated with smooth shelled, high gel bleed, silicone breast implants. The sterilization of the polyurethane foam in the early days was questionable. More recently, ethylene oxide (ETO)-sterilized polyurethane has been used in the manufacturing process and this has been shown to reduce the incidence of biofilm...

Endoscopic placement of breast implants has been described through an umbilical incision. Limitations include the fact that only inflatable implant can be used through umbilical approach. The purpose of this study is to describe the authors' evolutionary transumbilical technique with cohesive silicone gel implant insertion and to retrospectively analyze preliminary results. The authors' technique is the placement of a cohesive silicone gel implant using a transumbilical approach in a subpectoral plane. Patients who were selected had mammary hypoplasia without ptosis and who requests breast augmentation with a scarless and natural feel breast were considered candidates...

UNLABELLED: A well-defined inframammary fold (IMF) is essential in providing an aesthetically pleasing and stable result in breast procedures. The position of the IMF on the chest wall determines the "footprint" of the breast, and hence the breast and chest aesthetic as a whole. Implant malposition is reported in the literature to occur in 5-8 % of primary breast augmentation patients. This occurs most commonly in a caudal direction, which is the most difficult problem to correct, as reported by Tebbett (Clin Plast Surg 28:425-434, 2001)...
