For more than a decade, breast augmentation has been one of the most popular plastic surgery in the United States. As they age, many women want to increase their size while improving the appearance of their breasts, and breast implants provide a safe and effective way to improve their shape.
Before you have breast augmentation, you may have some questions about the surgery. Here are the 10 most popular questions about breast augmentation.
First: What should I know before performing breast augmentation?
Reply: First of all, remember that breast augmentation is a major surgery and you will need time to recover. Most patients fully recover in about a month, but a lot depends on you.
No. 2: Saline and Silicone… Which type of breast augmentation feels the most natural?
Reply: From saline implants to silicone, breast implants have improved in recent years, but most plastic surgeons still say ‘Gummy Bears’ Silicone implants feel most like natural breasts.
No. 3: Does my breast implant need to be replaced at some point?
Reply: Yes. Modern breast implants can last a long time, but most need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years. It is best to have an annual check-up to see how well your existing breast implants are performing.
No. 4: Will I need additional breast surgery in the future?
Reply: Some women’s implants may last a lifetime, but the surgeon says you shouldn’t expect this. You may need additional breast surgery later in life to replace your implants.
No. 5: Can I breastfeed after implantation?
Reply: Yes, most women can breastfeed after breast augmentation surgery. However, during your breast augmentation consultation, you should discuss this with your surgeon, as this will affect their incision location.
No. 6: Does the implant reduce the accuracy of breast cancer detection by mammography?
Reply: Yes, breast implants make mammograms more difficult to read. However, the good news is that MRI or ultrasound can be used to check for breast cancer in patients with breast implants.
No.7: How often should I get off work?
Reply: Breast augmentation is a major surgery, so you should plan to rest for at least a week. However, if you work from home, you may only be able to rest for a day or two.
No. 8: What implant looks the most natural?
Reply: Surgeons have different opinions, but many people say that using silicone implants to place the implant under the muscle usually looks like a natural breast. Choosing an implant size that is proportional to your body is also important for a more natural-looking breast size.
No. 9: What happens if I don’t replace breast augmentation?
Reply: If you end up not replacing the implant, the risk of breast complications will increase. One of the most common problems is capsular contracture, the scar tissue surrounding the implant shrinks and damages it.
No. 10: Which type of breast augmentation lasts the longest?
Reply: No matter which type of implant you choose, it will eventually need to be replaced. The chance of implant rupture increases by 1% every year. The older the implant, the greater the risk of rupture or other complications. Most implants need to be replaced after 10-15 years, but some may last for more than 20 years.
