10 Most Popular Questions About Breast Implants, Answered By Dr. Raj Plastic Surgeon In Dallas, Texas

For more than 10 years, breast augmentation has been one of America’s most popular plastic surgery procedures. Many women want to increase their size while enhancing the appearance of their breasts as they age, and breast implants offer a safe and effective way to improve their shape.

Before you have breast implants, you may have some questions about the procedure. Below are 10 of the most popular questions about breast augmentation.

No. 1: What Should I Know Before Getting Breast Implants?
Answer: First, keep in mind that breast augmentation is major surgery, and you will need time to recover. Most patients have a full recovery in about a month, but much depends on you.

No. 2: Saline And Silicone...Which Type Of Breast Implant Feels The Most Natural?
Answer: From saline implants to silicone, breast implants have improved in recent years, but most plastic surgeons still say that ‘gummy bear’ silicone implants feel the most like natural breasts.

No. 3:  Will My Breast Implants Need To Be Replaced At Some Point?
Answer: Yes. Modern breast implants can last a long time, but most need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years. It would be best to have annual checkups to see how your existing breast implants are holding up.

No. 4: Will I Need To Have Additional Breast Surgery In The Future?
Answer: Some women’s implants may last for life, but surgeons say you shouldn’t expect this. You will likely need additional breast surgery later in life to replace your implants.

No. 5: Will I Be Able To Breastfeed After Having Implants?
Answer: Yes, most women can breastfeed after having breast implant surgery. However, during your breast augmentation consultation, you should talk to your surgeon about this because it will influence where they make their incisions.

No. 6: Will the Implants Make Mammograms Less Accurate In Detecting Breast Cancer?
Answer: Yes, breast implants make mammograms more difficult to read. But, the good news is an MRI or sonogram can be used to check for breast cancer in patients with breast implants.

No.7: How Long Should I Take Off From Work?
Answer: Breast augmentation is major surgery, so you should plan to take at least a week off work. If you work from home, you may be able to take only a day or two off, though.

No. 8: What Implants Look The Most Natural?
Answer: Surgeons have different opinions, but many say implant placement under the muscle using silicone implants often looks like natural breasts. Choosing an implant size in proportion to your body also matters for more natural-looking breast size.

No. 9: What Happens If You Don't Replace Your Breast Implants?
Answer: If you don’t replace your implants eventually, the risks of breast complications rise. One of the most common issues is capsular contracture, where the scar tissue around the implant contracts and damages it.

No. 10: What Type of Breast Implants Last The Longest?
Answer: Whichever type of implant you choose, it’s like that it will need to be replaced eventually. With the chance of implant rupture increasing by one percent each year, the older your implants are, the greater your risk of rupture or other complications. Most implants need to be replaced after 10-15 years, but some may last more than 20.

Breast implant surgery is a popular and safe procedure. However, if you keep the information above in mind, you’ll go into your procedure with as much information as possible.
