Getting breast implants is a big decision. Not only do you have to decide whether or not you really want them, but you also have to decide which type of breast implants would be best to get. Breast implants are an option for those who want to increase the size of their breasts or those who would like to reshape their breasts. Implants can also correct asymmetrical breasts. Implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures.
Over the past few years, we have seen a surge of interest in breast augmentation surgeries. This interest has been fueled by a growing awareness of the benefits of breast augmentation. As a woman ages, her breasts lose their fullness due to factors such as menopause, weight loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. Many women seek breast augmentation to address these concerns, thus resulting in a significant increase in breast augmentation surgeries.
Breast implants will need to be replaced at some point.
Breast implants are one of the most common cosmetic surgeries performed today. Women of all ages have such implants to enhance their breast size, shape, and appearance. Plastic surgeons can place silicone or saline implants beneath the breasts to increase cup size or create a more aesthetically pleasing breast. Implants are not permanent, so they will need to be replaced at some point.
If you’ve recently had breast augmentation surgery, then chances are you’re already aware that breast implants will eventually need replacement. Many women are surprised to learn that breast implants have a shelf life of around 10 years and that after 10 years, the implants may need to be replaced. They will likely look as full and youthful as they did when they were first installed, but they may need replacement due to possible rupture, infection, or loss.
Choosing a breast implant type is not as simple as saline vs. silicone
There are many things to consider when picking a breast implant type, including shape, size, texture, and material. Still, most people ignore the one factor that will have the biggest impact on the appearance of your new breasts: the type of fill material your implant is made from. Each type of breast implant has specific advantages and disadvantages, which explains why there are now so many options to choose from. The two main types of breast implant fill are saline and silicone.
For many women choosing between saline or silicone breast implants is a question of necessity. Silicone implants provide a softer look and feel than saline implants and can cause less rippling and scarring. Saline implants are generally firmer and in the event of rupture, the solution can be naturally absorbed by the body. Choosing between a saline and silicone implant is personal, and it is important to weigh up the pros and cons carefully.
Expect to have additional breast surgery in the future.
Breast implants can be both a blessing and a curse. If you’ve had breast surgery in the past, you might be contemplating getting implants again, but it’s important to know the long-term effects. Expect to have additional breast surgery in the future. Depending on how you care for your own breasts, you may or may not need a breast lift. Implants add volume to the breast, but they can also cause sagging. Breast augmentation surgery involves inserting a silicone shell underneath the chest muscle. The silicone implant makes the breast look bigger and fuller, but it is an artificial breast and is not a one-time-only solution.
There are two separate ways to insert a breast implant: under the breast capsule and under the muscle. An incision is placed under the muscle when inserting a saline-filled breast implant. The incision under the muscle’s purpose is to drain any excess fluid that leaks from the implant. The incision under the muscle is more discrete and hides beneath a fold of the breast.
An incision location is often very important to a patient. The incision location can help determine several factors, including the length of the recovery, the amount of scarring, and the appearance of the scar. A surgeon needs to liaise with the patient and formulate a personalized treatment plan before surgery can commence.
