However, as the market grows, so does the demands of the market. More and more women are seeking natural-looking enhancements that also fit their natural frame. And since maintenance is such an essential part of plastic surgery, many women are also looking for implants that can handle their active lifestyle. Motiva® is stepping up to the plate, addressing these issues by providing implants with an innovative design that meets the demands of the market.
The surface is smooth and soft so it is advantageous for easy implant placement, and the incision can be made small, which helps to reduce scarring. It is the most commonly used type especially for those with thin skin and little breast tissues.
The surface is rough and uneven so it promotes tissue growth in between the contact points of the implant shell to secure them from rotating. The tissue is positioned between the implant, it is easy to prevent implant rotation, and it is possible to obtain a result of soft touch.
TRANSAXILLARY APPROACH (ARMPIT INCISION)
The breast implants are placed through an incision in the armpit. The armpit incision is barely visible because of the natural creases of the armpit. An endoscope is used to help create a pocket for the breast implant, as well as for accurate positioning. This approach can be done with a wide range of patients. This method is suitable for people who want to hide their surgical scar.
PERIAREOLAR APPROACH (AREOLA INCISION)
The incision is made in the lower part of the areola and makes the scar less visible. This method allows surgeons to have a direct view of the surgical site and for precise implant placement. It also allows for the surgeon to handle the breast tissue directly for better implant adaptation. The disadvantage of this method is that the operation may take longer depending on the size of the patient's areola. It is recommended for those with an areola size of 2.5cm or larger.
INFRAMAMMARY FOLD APPROACH (BREAST FOLD INCISION)
This approach is most commonly used in the western countries. The breast fold incision is made at the fold along the bottom of the breast and the scar can be hidden underneath the fold. The advantage is that it takes less time during surgery and less recovery time compared to other approaches. The disadvantage is that it can show a visible scar at the lower part of the breast.
Implant Placement Locations
SUBGLANDULAR PLACEMENT (UNDER THE BREAST GLAND)
This is a commonly used insertion for people who have enough breast tissue. The implant is inserted below the breast tissue. This method gives the most natural shape and texture, but is only possible if you have enough existing breast tissue. The advantage is ample cleavage and the implant is not affected by the muscle movement.
SUBMUSCULAR/SUB PECTORAL PLACEMENT (UNDER THE MUSCLE)
This insertion is used for people with minimal breast tissue. The implant is inserted below the muscle and breast tissue. The advantage is better concealment of the implant, especially the cleavage area as the upper portion of the implant is placed under the muscle. This placement method also reduces the risk of implant rippling.
DUAL-PLANE PLACEMENT (COMBINATION OF SUBGLANDULAR & SUBMUSCULAR PLACEMENT)
The Dual Plane technique involves the use of both the Sub-glandular and Sub- muscular techniques. The surgeon uses the Sub-muscular method to emplace the upper part of the implant. The implant is placed in a pocket under the chest muscle (Pectoralis Major), with the lower portion of the implant covered with breast tissue. This placement method is commonly used for patients with small breasts to obtain the most natural result.
The exact degree to which the ratio of the muscle to breast tissue covering the implant is determined on a case-to-case basis, depending on the patient’s anatomy and aesthetic goals. This procedure is what most patients opt for due to the fact that the dual plane technique can be adjusted to achieve optimal implant placement for the patient.
1. OPERATION TIME
Breast Augmentation surgery is an outpatient procedure and you will be able to go home after the surgery on the same day. The estimated time of procedure takes about 1 to 3 hours, more or less depending on the body type of the patient.
2. ANESTHETIC METHOD
Both General and Local anesthesia can be used for Breast Augmentation surgery.
General anesthesia is injected before the surgery starts to make you fully asleep, and you will not feel any sensation during the operation. Once the anesthesia is injected, you will feel more relaxed and slowly drift asleep.
Local anesthesia works when it is injected into the area that is involved in the surgery to make the tissues numb in order to disable the pain nerves in the tissues while the operation is ongoing. In contrast with general anesthesia, local anesthesia will not put you to sleep. You will be fully awake throughout the surgery but you will not feel any pain or sensation from the operation.
3. STITCH REMOVAL
Stitch Removal may take 7-14 days after surgery or may not be required depending on wound closure technique and where you choose your incision following the healing process. You will be going to the clinic for post-surgery consultation and the removal day will be decided after your doctor has checked your breast condition.
Breast augmentation using Motiva breast implants costs an average of USD$3,000-USD $4,000 (PHP ₱156,000- PHP ₱ 208,000) in Philippines, 50%-70% cheaper than having breast augmentation in countries like South Korea, United States or Singapore. This is due to the fact that the country has a lower cost of living. However, rest assured that the hospitals, clinics, and medical practitioners in the Philippines are of world-class quality and standards.
