Are breast implants permanent?

Breast implants are not considered permanent and may need to be replaced or removed at some point in the future due to factors such as implant rupture, capsular contracture, or changes in aesthetic preferences.

Can I choose to have the implant removed?

Yes, patients have the option to have breast implants removed or replaced if desired. Our experienced plastic surgeons can discuss the procedure and potential outcomes during a consultation.

Can I breast-feed after receiving an implant?

Breast implants typically do not interfere with breast-feeding, but individual results may vary. Most women can breast-feed successfully after receiving breast implants, but it’s essential to discuss any concerns with your surgeon.

Will insurance cover the implant procedure?

Insurance coverage for breast implant procedures varies depending on factors such as the reason for surgery and the patient’s insurance policy. It’s essential to check with your insurance provider to determine coverage eligibility.

Am I eligible for implants?

Eligibility for breast implants depends on factors such as overall health, medical history, and aesthetic goals. Our plastic surgeons can assess your candidacy during a consultation and recommend the most suitable treatment plan for you.

What are the major risks?

Major risks associated with breast surgery include infection, bleeding, changes in nipple or breast sensation, implant rupture, capsular contracture, and changes in breast shape or symmetry. Our surgeons prioritize patient safety and take steps to minimize these risks.

What are breast implants made of, and where are they placed?

Breast implants are typically made of saline or silicone gel and are placed either behind the breast tissue (subglandular placement) or behind the chest muscle (submuscular placement). The choice of implant material and placement depends on factors such as the patient’s anatomy and aesthetic goals.

Should women who are pregnant or plan to be pregnant wait before undergoing a breast lift or breast reduction?

It’s generally recommended for women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant to wait before undergoing a breast lift or breast reduction. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter the size and shape of the breasts, potentially affecting the results of these procedures.

Is there much post-operative pain from a breast lift?

Some discomfort and mild pain are common after a breast lift, but it can be managed with pain medication prescribed by your surgeon. Most patients find that any discomfort subsides within a few days to a week after surgery.

How long does recovery take?

Recovery time after breast surgery varies depending on the type of procedure performed and individual healing factors. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few weeks, with full recovery and final results becoming apparent over several months.

Does breast surgery cause scarring?

Breast surgery may result in some scarring, but our plastic surgeons use advanced techniques and strategic incision placement to minimize visible scarring. Scars typically fade over time and can be concealed under clothing or swimwear.
