Reasons for a breast augmentation in Munich with the new B-Lite light implants
In our society it is the expression of femininity par excellence: the breast. For many women, the breast as a perceived flaw is not only an obstacle in their sex life, but also determines their self-confidence in their private and business environment. Breast augmentation in my practice in Munich can provide a remedy for these problems. However, especially with large breast enlargements, there are often concerns about the implant weight and possible associated health problems. B-Lite breast implants, also called lightweight implants, which weigh 30% less than conventional breast implants, offer a solution to these problems, as the weight literally weighs less than conventional implants.
How do B-Lite breast implants differ from conventional silicone implants?
The new B-Lite breast implants correspond in shape and size exactly to the silicone implants produced in Germany for decades. The light implants also have the same feel and feel as conventional implants and have a typical soft form stability – after all, the outer shell of the new implants is the same as that of the Polytech implants used for decades. The difference with the new B-lite implants is the innovative silicone gel filling. They contain air pockets that reduce the weight of the implants but still allow the desired volume. By using these biocompatible hollow silicone microspheres, the weight of implants, often the limiting factor in the desired breast enlargement, can be reduced by up to 30%.
What changes does the new B-Lite light implants bring to patients?
The new B-Lite implants offer more design options for breast augmentation. With implants of 350 to 400 cubic centimeters, sagging of the breast was hardly avoidable due to the weight. Especially after a long period of wear, with weak connective tissue or with large implants, follow-up and post-operative lifting may be necessary if the breast tissue is pulled downwards by the weight of the implants. The weight factor is literally less important for light implants. The load on the breast tissue and the skin decreases as a result, whereby the breast sinks considerably less with advancing age and remains beautiful longer. This makes aesthetic results possible that would have led to complications before and would not have been medically justifiable. Especially women who are active in sports and wish to have a breast enlargement, but avoid it because they fear restrictions or back problems during their activities, can fall back on the new B-Lite breast implants. Also with breast enlargements, which are accompanied by a tightening of the breast, the lower weight has an advantage for the aesthetics and the danger of scarring.
Differences in the postoperative healing process with B-Lite light implants
Due to the lower weight compared to silicone implants, postoperative complaints with B-Lite implants are considerably lower. Patients have significantly less postoperative swelling. The lower weight has a positive effect on wound healing and patients report less postoperative pain.
