What are Breast Implants?
Breast implants are used when a woman has a breast augmentation. The implants are silicone shells that are filled with either saline or silicone gel. Breast implants are available in several styles and shapes to suit the personal anatomy and preferences of each woman.
Breast Implant Removal
Unfortunately, many women undergo breast augmentation surgery and then later decide that they are not happy with the results. This is not necessarily a reflection of the surgeon, but rather a natural change in a woman’s preferences about how she wants her body to look. Reasons to have breast implants removed are:
- The implants have been in place for many years and need to be replaced as recommended by the FDA
- A woman decides that her breast augmentation made her breasts too big or not large enough
- A woman wants to have a different shaped implant, such as teardrop-shaped implants
- A woman reaches a life stage in which her implants no longer represent who she is as a person
Benefits of Breast Implants
Without breast implants, women would not be able to enhance their natural breasts. At first, this may not seem significant, but a woman feels more feminine when she is happy with her breast shape and size. Today’s implants are very safe, and a woman has many more options than in the past.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Breast Implants?
The ideal candidate for breast implants is an adult woman who wants to enhance her natural breasts. Implants are also used in breast reconstruction surgeries.
What Do I Need to Do Before I Have Breast Implants?
Breast augmentation is not without risks, so we recommend that you schedule a consultation with Dr. Klein. As a board-certified plastic surgeon who uses a patient-centered approach, Dr. Klein will provide realistic expectations of your breast implants and augmentation surgery.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Breast Implants?
Breast implants as part of an augmentation procedure take about 60 to 90 minutes. Breast reconstruction with implants can take longer.
What to Expect After Breast Implants
Allowing the tissues to heal properly is key to being happy with the results of your breast implants and augmentation surgery. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions before you leave our office on the day of your breast augmentation.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Breast Implants?
You will have scars after getting breast implants. The scars take about one year to fade and will be hidden from plain view. If you are having revision breast augmentation to replace or remove your implants, whenever possible, Dr. Klein will use the same incision lines as your initial breast augmentation.
When Will I See the Results?
Your breasts will be swollen for up to one year after your breast implant surgery. Once the swelling subsides, you will see the full results of your breast implant surgery.
How Long Will the Results of Breast Implants Last?
Breast implants are considered long-lasting for the most part, but you can have the implants removed should you so choose.
