Is breast enhancement the right procedure for me?
Breast Enhancement is a highly individualised procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else's desires.
Breast Enhancement may be a good option for you if:
You are physically healthy.
You have realistic expectations.
Your breasts are fully developed.
You feel your breasts are too small.
You are dissatisfied with your breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging.
Your breasts vary in size or shape.
One or both breasts failed to develop normally.
What will they look like after surgery?
Your breasts will be bigger, rounder, and project further forward. Under the muscle implants look more natural than above muscle implants; this is because there is tissue over the implant which will give them a more natural feel too.
Will I get stretch marks?
It depends on the size of the implant and how stretchy your skin is. It is a possibility to have stretch marks when your breast implant size is quite large compared to your original sizing.
Is there a minimum or a maximum size I can get?
The size is proportionate to your body size, the laxity of your skin and the tension of your muscle.
How big is the scar?
Generally less then 3cm, the implant is inserted in the crease of the breast, this is a much smaller scar then other types of implant.
How much 'downtime' is there?
Most people need 5-7 days off work; this can vary according to each individual's pain tolerance. If your work involves physical activity or lifting, you may need more rest.
How soon after can I exercise?
Walking 7-10 days, more vigorous exercise can be introduced slowly after 3-6 weeks.
Do I have to get them replaced every 10- 15 years?
NO, the saline implants that we use have a lifetime warranty. They have been designed to withstand extreme force. Should something happen to the implant during your lifetime, the company will replace the implant free of charge.
What happens if they leak?
You will notice straight away if a saline implant leaks. Saline implants are completely safe and there is no danger to you as it is only salty water which can be absorbed by the body. We choose saline because of its safety. A gel or silicone implant would leak very slowly into the body cavity and you wouldn't notice straight away.
What type of implant do you use?
We preferentially use saline implants, this is because the scar is smaller, you will have a choice of variable size for each implant and you can correct left to right variations. There is no difference visually or to touch.
Will I still be able to breastfeed?
As the implant is placed under the pectoral muscles, it does not affect the mammary glands therefore allowing you to still be able to breast feed in the future.
Will breast enlargement/breast augmentation lead to cancer?
Breast enlargement or breast augmentation does not cause cancer. You can also still detect cancer. It has been said that women with implants touch their breast more, therefore early detection is better.
