Macrolane breast shaping injections were launched in the United Kingdom over one year ago. At present over fifty cosmetic clinics are providing this procedure and the numbers are slowly increasing. Macrolane Breast Fillers
Macrolane is a NASHA ( Non Animal Stabilized Hyalauronic acid ) based product manufactured by the Swedish firm Q MED. It is broadly based on their Restylane Sub Q Dermal Filler range , which is
commonly injected into the face. To date over 9 million treatments have been given with the Restylane range of fillers.
Macrolane can increase the breast cup size by 1 and 1 and a half , along with enhancing breast shape
allowing you to obtain a cleavage and the classic "tear drop shaped " breast which everybody usually desires. The actual Macrolane procedure has advanced over the last twelve months. We will consider the techniques of anaesthesia, the amount of filler commonly injected, sites of incision, canula track sealing and most importantly... the site of product placement in the breast.
The breast area needs to be anaesthesised to make the procedure simple and pain free. Some physicians are now using very fine needles called spinal needles to inject the anaesthetic, from my experience this
is much more comfortable compared to in the past when larger diameter infusion canulas were used. One hundred mls per breast was generally the benchmark to be injected, it is now common practice to inject around 120mls/breast even up to 140 - 150 mls, this is of course client dependent.
The sites of incision is becoming a controversy, some physicians are starting to inject from
above the breast, however we must remember, the incision to inject the macrolane will leave a scar, albeit , a tiny one. However we must remember a top up is required around 12 months, as the product begins to be absorbed by the body...so repeated injections from above the breast will eventually leave a more noticeable scar , whilst an equivalent scar under the breast will be hidden by the breast shadow and bra.
My personal preference is to inject from under the breast along with another tiny entry point along the areolar( the dark area of the nipple). This technique is excellent to achieve a tear drop shaped breast. Incision sites need to be fully discussed with the client.The actual site of product placement is crucial to achieve a smooth result to achieve a smooth result and avoid the upsetting situations of lumpiness that can occur as Macrolane tends to "travel."
The Macrolane breast shaping injections need to be carefully placed in the retromammary space, this is between the breast mammary gland and the pectoralis major muscle of the chest. Finally the the physician must ensure the the track of entry of the canula is sealed.
In summary the delivery of Macrolane breast shaping injections has developed over the last twelve months as physicians gain more experience with the product and procedure , equally clients have developed more confidence in the product . Macrolane Breast Fillers
