Whether you plan to get breast implants or you may already have a pair, it is inevitable to get worried about how it is going to be in the long run.
So for those concerns, here are five of the most common questions asked.
1. How can pregnancy and breastfeeding affect breast augmentation?
Most women believe that pregnancy and breastfeeding can have negative effects on their breasts. There is some truth to this statement, with the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) saying that multiple pregnancies can cause the breast to sag. This is due to the hormones that are released during pregnancy which affect the breast tissue.
The physical changes can also affect the form and volume of the breast which can result in sagging. But experts also say that breastfeeding does not cause this problem. That is why new moms should not forgo breastfeeding for the purpose of maintaining breast firmness.
2. What is considered to be an ideal breast implant?
Implants do not come in a one-size-fits-all package. That is why you cannot really say that there is one such implant that is ideal for everyone because each woman have their individual needs to suit their anatomical structure. A thorough evaluation with a board-certified and experienced surgeon can lead you to choose the appropriate type and size for you. The projection, type, volume and size would all depend on your body type.
3. Is a ruptured implant dangerous?
This would depend on the type of breast implants that you have on you. If it were saline implants, you don’t have to worry about it because saline is similar to the fluids that you have in your body. But the same is not true for silicone implants. Silicone is a foreign substance and when it comes in prolonged contact with your body structures, it may already pose some hazards to your health. If you happen to have those infamous PIP breast implants, it is very important that you get immediate help because it has been proven that it is made out of commercial-grade materials instead of medical-grade ones.
4. How can I maintain my new pair of breasts?
Breast augmentation in Sydney does not come cheap, so make sure that you not only have it fashioned by a good surgeon but you should also learn how to maintain these. During the first few days following surgery make sure that you perform mild breast exercises. This promotes better implant placement and a more natural-looking result. You must always give your breasts good support to protect it from sagging, so wear a well-fitting bra, especially when performing active sports.
5. How can I make sure that I get quality breast implant surgery?
The quality of breast augmentation results can be ensured by taking the time to look for a specifically trained and certified cosmetic surgeon. His skills determine the outcome of your procedure, so it can either scar you for life, or lead you to be proud of the results. Ask about this surgeon, go through his previous works by carefully perusing his portfolio, and also ask about the type of breast implants he will use.
