2. What is your experience with breast augmentation?
My experience with breast augmentation has been a positive one. I had the procedure done over two years ago and have been extremely pleased with the results. The process of getting a breast augmentation was relatively straightforward. I went to a plastic surgeon and discussed my goals and expectations. After discussing my options, I chose to go with a saline implant. The surgeon then marked my chest and made the incisions necessary for the procedure.
3. What are the risks and complications associated with breast augmentation?
The risks and complications associated with breast augmentation are varied and depend on the type of procedure and the individual patient. Immediate risks include infection, bleeding, bruising, swelling, and asymmetry. Infection is a serious risk, and can occur if bacteria enter the implant pocket. Bleeding can occur during surgery, and can lead to a hematoma, which is a collection of blood outside of the blood vessels.
4. What are the different types of breast implants available?
There are two main types of breast implants available: saline and silicone. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water and are inserted empty, then filled once they are in place. Silicone implants are filled with a thick, gel-like substance and are pre-filled before insertion. Saline implants are considered the safer option of the two, as they are filled with a sterile salt water solution that is easily absorbed by the body in the event of a rupture.

Silicone Gel Implants Pros: 1. Silicone gel implants are the most popular type of breast implant. They are known for providing a more natural look and feel than other types of implants. 2.

The length of time for a surgery depends on a variety of factors, such as the type of surgery, the complexity of the procedure, and the patient’s overall health. Generally, most surgeries take anywhere from one to several hours, although some may take longer. For minor surgeries, such as a mole removal or a biopsy, the procedure may only take a few minutes. More complex surgeries, such as a heart bypass or a hip replacement, can take several hours.

The recovery time for breast augmentation varies from patient to patient, depending on the type of procedure performed, the patient’s overall health, and the patient’s lifestyle. Generally, patients can expect to be back to their normal activities within two to three weeks after surgery. Immediately following surgery, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Pain medication can be prescribed to help manage these symptoms.

Yes, you can breastfeed after breast augmentation. Breast augmentation does not interfere with your ability to breastfeed.
