Common Breast Augmentation Questions & Answers

Breast augmentation is a very popular plastic surgery procedure to have performed in the Weston area if you are not happy with the size or shape of your breasts, or if you have problems with saggy breasts following weight loss or pregnancy, and want to get some work done. Here are commonly asked questions and answers for this type of surgery.

Will I have scars after the procedure?

One of the most commonly asked questions is whether or not you will have visible scarring. In most cases, the incisions made are around the nipples and under the armpits. Even with mild scarring, they are barely noticeable. In time, the scars fade just like with other incisions. Doctors in Weston are careful to put incisions in locations that are not easily visible.

Where are the breast implants placed?

During breast augmentation with breast implants, they are placed below the muscle of the breasts. The reason most surgeons choose this location is because they end up looking more natural and feel better to the touch. It is also a good option when you need to have a mammogram because it does not detract from the test results. The saline and silicone implants also stay softer for a longer period of time when placed under the muscle.

What if a silicone breast implant ruptures?

It is rare for a silicone implant to rupture, but it does happen. If you experience this, you will need to have the silicone gel implant either removed or replaced with a new one. If it ruptures, the silicone in the breast can turn into masses that mimic tumors. They are not dangerous, but it can be hard to distinguish between actual tumor masses and masses from the silicone. It is safer to have it removed and replaced.

What implants should be used for sagging breasts?

If your issue is not necessarily with the size of your breasts but the sagging of breasts, then you want a breast lift, another form of breast augmentation. You can get implants along with the lift if you would like them fuller or larger, but it isn’t a requirement of a breast lift. The implant alone isn’t going to help with the sagging unless you get a lift as well.
