Types of Breast Implants

Breast Augmentation Surgery in Birmingham

Breast implants are made of silicone gel. They are available in different sizes and shapes. Commonly round or tear drop shaped implants are used. The appropriate implants will be recommended for you requirement. They are sized in portion to your build and chest size. You will have detailed discussion about the size of the implant that will suit your build.

Implants are not for life and may need to be replaced after many years. The outer lining of the implant wears with time and become weaker and may leak, warranting replacement. Implants form capsules around them as a result of response of the body towards the foreign substance like silicone, however, the incidence remain between 5 to 10 %. The breast implants carry a lifetime guarantee from the manufacturers for capsular contracture and implant failure.

Boob Job Side Effects

Bleeding in the cavity created for the implant is rare, if present then may have to return to the operation theatre for removal. Very rarely implants may get infected. Antibiotics are prescribed in the initial stages and if it persists then the implant is removed and reinserted after few months once the infection is fully under control or completely eradicated. The more common complication is breast become harder than normal. This is due to the body response to the silicone and form a scar tissue. When the scar shrinks it causes contracture of the capsule around the implant.

You could have altered sensation of the breast or nipple ranging from loss of sensation to increased sensitivity. Tear drop implants can move or rotate altering the shape of the breast.

Scar under the breast can remain red and lumpy may take many months to improve.

Other information that is relevant is effect of breast feeding and risk of cancer with breast implants. Current literature suggests there is no link between breast implants to cancer or any other disease. There is no evidence of silicone impact on breast feeding. Mammography is possible with the breast implants but the radiologist has to be informed prior to the procedure.
