“How interesting, I hear from patients about breast augmentation.
Often women, wishing to become the owner of a magnificent bust, the consultation of asking funny questions. In my practice I am faced with a desire to give to know the following: what is the biggest artificial bust in the world, can the implant be colored; with fears as to whether the implant can shift or leak. And after some stars deliberately removed the breast and put the implants, patients began to assume that’s what you’re supposed to do.
Here are the top -7 major myths about breast augmentation surgery that I encounter daily:
1. The implant may burst or even explode!
Inside the silicone implant is a special viscous gel, whose properties are changed by changes in atmospheric pressure. In social media we constantly see photos of the Babes, flying vacation around the world. And yet none of them got off the plane with exploding implants. What we can do to implant burst in normal life — I can’t even imagine.
2. You can’t breastfeed!
When endoprotezirovanie mammary gland is practically not injured, and the implant is placed under the pectoralis muscle. Even with operating access through the bottom floor of the circumference of the areola, the incision goes around the edge of the gland and does not affect lactation. During the healing process around the implant capsule is formed that completely separates the implant from the surrounding tissue. To breast feed after joint replacement is possible, it is absolutely safe for both mom and baby. With breastfeeding the volume of the breast increases and the skin cover is stretched, which may lead to ptosis of the breast, that is, the drooping Breasts. In this case, the operation is performed for breast lift without changing the implants.
3. After enlarging the Breasts lose sensitivity!
Another common among women is a myth. Temporary decrease in sensitivity of the nipple, areola or breast skin is possible during the first month after surgery, but is due solely to the edema. It does not matter which was used access: under the breast, through the areola or through the armpit. The swelling of tissues subsides, and the sensitivity is fully restored. Thus, the endoprosthesis of the mammary glands does not cause a decrease in breast sensitivity.
4. You can not go to bath, sauna, Solarium, skydiving, skiing, scuba diving.
These limitations really are, but only in the rehabilitation process. A few months after breast augmentation you can return to your normal life! To conquer Everest, bask in the Solarium, diving. Early implants was less than perfect and the possibility of damage to the implant was higher. And today implant filled with a dense cohesive gel that retains its shape even when damage to the casing. The shell of the implant made of solid silicone. Even with the implant in his hand, it is extremely difficult to injure.
5. Every 10 years the implants need to be changed!
Currently, manufacturers of breast implants give a lifetime warranty on their products. The reason for the replacement implant only desire to obtain the Breasts of a different size. Replacement of implants is a more complicated operation, in contrast to primary hip replacement. It is therefore very important to choose the right plastic surgeon the desired breast size.
6. “Silicone” breast looks unnatural, and the implant can always be felt
The first question I ask the patient for a consultation for breast augmentation — what you want Breasts: a natural or more elaborate? And if a patient chooses the first option, then she receives a beautiful, neat Breasts. And believe me, it will be very difficult in the photo to determine where the chest with a properly chosen implant, and where the same size, but its. However, in the horizontal position of the Breasts without implants is shifted laterally, and implanted there. We must not forget that a lot depends on your own tissue. For example, if your epithelial tissue is sufficient, the implant is difficult to determine even to the touch. Well, if a girl is very slim and your own breast tissue is very small, the implant really is palpable.
7. Breast with implants SAG faster
Mammary gland after the replacement behaves exactly the same as a normal chest. We must remember that the chest is greater than the second size needs support from below. The force of gravity constantly acts on our fabrics, and the chest is no exception! In order to avoid pozirovanie breast, you should: avoid weight fluctuations, to care for the skin of the breast and to wear the supportive bra.
