How do I know if I need a breast lift in addition to my breast augmentation?
If you’re experiencing breast sagging in addition to a lack of volume, a breast lift should be performed. Breast sagging often indicates a loss in skin elasticity, and placing heavy implants may worsen the sagging.
How often will I need to replace my breast implants?
Breast implants last for many years. Typically, the only times you’ll need to exchange your implants is if you want a different look, or on a rare occasion, the implants fail and need to be replaced.
Will implants prevent me from breastfeeding if I become pregnant?
You will still be able to breastfeed after having implants. Be sure to discuss this desire with Dr Beale before your procedure, so that he can take it into account in his surgical plan.
When will I see the full results of my breast augmentation?
Your implants will take 3-6 months or longer to fully settle as swelling goes down and your skin relaxes.
What are the risks of breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation carries the risks that any surgery does, including bleeding, blood clots, pain, scarring, infection, anesthesia risks, and others. Breast implant risks also include implant failure or rupture, shifting, or hardening.
Will I have cleavage?
Breast augmentation generally provides more cleavage for women. If you desire ample cleavage, this can be achieved with the placement of the implants.
