Things You Need To Know Before Going For Breast Enhancement

Having a breast enhancement procedure exposes you to risks such as breast-feeding difficulties or implant leakage. Thus, it is essential to visualize these common dangers and side-effects to better prepare you on what to do.

Quite a number of patients who have tried breast enhancement successfully breast feed. However, there is still a possibility that it will interfere with the breast feeding process. Before moving through the surgery, confer with your surgeon about this. Sometimes, breast enhancement leads to a loss of sensation in the nipple and breast area. This loss of sensation, which results from broken nerve endings, may be temporary or permanent. The result would depend upon the breast enhancement technique applied by your surgeon.

Another potential danger of having breast enhancement procedures are the leaking of the breast implant materials into the surrounding breast tissue. To decrease the possibility of leaking, make sure that the implant material that will be used is approved by the FDA. Implants may also break or tear over time. Normally, ruptures take place when there is extreme compression or trauma to the breast. It may also be due to the natural aging of the implant. Sometimes, it is mammography itself that contracts the breast implant, thereby inducing it to rupture.

The worst risk in breast enhancement rests in its impediment of breast cancer detection. Breast enhancement implants may hide breast tumors during mammography or ultrasound. For patients with breast enhancement, additional views and special imaging are needed during breast examination. The “Eklund displacement views” helps maximize the visibility of the breast tissue to further detect tumors.

Before undergoing a breast enhancement surgery, it is recommended to discuss the possible fallouts with your preferred qualified surgeon who has right experience in breast enhancement. Ensure that the surgeon will tell you of everything you need to know about the procedure and its fall-out.
