What you need to know about breast augmentation and future health?

By June 7, 2021News

Breast augmentation surgery gives a highly satisfying result, with an instant improvement in your appearance and self-esteem.

There are many reasons why women consider a breast augmentation including:

  • You would prefer your breasts to be a larger cup size.
  • Your breasts have shrunk or sagged after pregnancy or breast feeding.
  • The sizes of your breasts are uneven.

Do breast implants last forever?

Breast augmentation surgery gives a highly satisfying result, with an instant improvement in your appearance and self-esteem. While we use the highest quality breast implants available and meticulous surgical technique, it is still possible for problems such as capsular contracture, infection, malposition, and leaks to occur.

These problems can vary from minor to significant enough to require further surgery and even replacement or removal of your implants. Scientific studies have estimated that 25% of women will require revisional implant surgery within ten years of their primary breast augmentation.

Can I still undergo regular breast screenings?

Women with breast implants can have regular screening mammograms. The radiographer will use special techniques to obtain a clear x-ray regardless of the type of implant and where it is inserted. It is also important to note that breast cancer has never been associated with implants.

Can I breastfeed after breast augmentation?

Implants are placed behind the milk glands or under the chest muscles, which does not affect milk supply. Ensure you discuss breastfeeding with your surgeon prior to any surgery so your surgeon can adjust their technique to help maintain your ability to breastfeed.
