FAQS about Breast implant surgery:
Breast implant surgery has become quite common over the years. Women who are not satisfied with the shape and size of their breasts can benefit from the procedure. However, breast augmentation is a big decision and you should go ahead only after educating yourself enough. Making an informed decision will help in setting realistic expectations.
Here’s a look at some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about breast implant that might help you:
What is the right age for getting breast implant surgery?
Many women feel that the procedure can be done during their 20s and 30s only. However, several women opt for a procedure in their 40s and 50s as well and get successful results. It has been observed that most common patients for breast implants are women in their 30s with kids who have been considering the surgery for some years. Irrespective of your age, it is recommended to schedule a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr.Kedarnath Pandya to get a clear idea. He will let you know what the best choice for you is.
Do breast implant increase the risk of breast cancer?
This is one question that bothers most women contemplating the procedure. However, several studies show that there is no truth to this. Getting breast augmentation will not increase the risk of getting breast cancer. Also, implants won’t delay the detection of breast cancer.
Should I wait to get done with pregnancies before augmentation?
Pregnancy will change the shape and size of your breast. These changes might affect the cosmetic appearance of augmented breasts. You can definitely delay the procedure and get it done after delivering children so that you can maintain the results for the long run. If you have got the procedure done, wait for at least 6 months to get pregnant. Breastfeeding with implants is possible and safe for both baby and mother.
Does breast implant work for sagging breasts?
Yes, women with sagging breasts can also get implants depending on how much the breasts sag. However, additional surgery might be required. If the nipples droop below the lower crease of a breast, breast lift procedure might be required. Unlike breast augmentation, breast lift will leave a scar around the nipple-areola. Without breast lift, the implant might not adequately address breast sagging.
How much does the surgery cost?
This is a variable factor and you need to discuss with your cosmetic surgeon the cost of the procedure. You can also ask for the cost break-up and finance options, if available.
Will nipple sensation change after the surgery?
Very few women report some loss of sensation/ feeling after breast implant surgery. However, in the majority of the cases, it lasts only for 6-8 weeks. It is to be known that 15% of women have a permanent change in nipple sensation.
How much pain to expect?
You will feel mild to moderate pain which can be controlled with medications in the first 1-2 weeks after the surgery. Severe pain is a sign of infection and you need to see your surgeon immediately. You can resume your routine and physical activities in a week or two but lifting heavy things should be avoided for 6 weeks. You can even start driving after a week unless you are on painkillers.
If you are planning to get the augmentation done, it is best to visit breast implant clinics to discuss your queries. The cosmetic surgeon will offer valuable insight. They will guide you about the procedure so that you know what to expect during and after the surgery. A breast implant is a safe and relatively common type of surgery. Collect the required information and go ahead for achieving your desired breasts.
