Breast Augmentation Lift

When it comes to patients considering a Breast Augmentation in New Jersey, there a few common questions that arise. It is extremely important to enter any procedure, especially a life changing one such as a breast augmentation, fully informed with no questions left unanswered.

Some Of The Most Common Questions

Are All Types Of Breast Implants The Same?

There are many different types of breast implants available for a New Jersey Breast Augmentation. The ones that are best for you will be determined based on your unique physiology and goals during a consultation with the plastic surgeon. There is no one size fits all approach when it comes to implants. Implants themselves may be smooth or textured, low projection or high projection, round or teardrop-shaped. When it comes to their filling, they may be filled with cohesive silicone gel, gummy-bear cohesive silicone, or saline depending on what is best for you.

How Will I Know If My Silicone-Based Implant Ruptures?

For those with saline implants, a rupture is apparent right away, as the breast will flatten. However, with silicone-based implants, it may be hard to notice, as the breast shape does not usually change. Therefore, it is recommended women with these types of implants get an MRI every three years to ensure they are intact.

Can I Breastfeed With Breast Implants?

Although this is a very common concern among women, most women are able to breastfeed normally after receiving implants. It has also been found that silicone does not affect the quality of breast milk.

If implants are placed behind the muscle and tissue, they should not obscure potential cancer. In some cases, additional views may need to be taken or an ultrasound or MRI performed. To ensure the best treatment, it is important to let your radiologist know that you have breast implants.

Can Breast Implants Cause Cancer?

In recent years, there have been headlines in the news linking certain types of breast implants to anaplastic large cell lymphoma – a rare type of cancer which is effectively treated with implant removal. It has typically been textured implants associated with this extremely rare problem. However, research has indicated that the implants itself do not seem to cause it, rather it may be due to the possibility of bacteria hiding in the texturing. Most surgeons today use an antibiotic during surgery to kill all bacteria and avoid potential complications.
