In addition, there is no evidence that silicone breast implants contribute to an increase in autoimmune (connective tissue) diseases. These diseases cause the immune system, which fights any invasion into the body, to produce antibodies that attack the body's own tissues. Examples of autoimmune diseases are lupus, Raynaud's phenomenon (a painful response of the hands and feet to cold), rheumatoid arthritis, and scleroderma, a disease that involves thickening of the skin.
In 2006, for the Inamed Corporation and for the Mentor Corporation, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration lifted its restrictions against using silicone-gel breast implants for breast reconstruction and for augmentation mammoplasty. Yet, the approval was conditional upon accepting FDA monitoring, the completion of 10-year-mark studies of the women who already had the breast implants, and the completion of a second, 10-year-mark study of the safety of the breast implants in 40,000 other women.[103] The FDA warned the public that breast implants do carry medical risks, and recommended that women who undergo breast augmentation should periodically undergo MRI examinations to screen for signs of either shell rupture or of filler leakage, or both conditions; and ordered that breast surgery patients be provided with detailed, informational brochures explaining the medical risks of using silicone-gel breast implants.[97]
Yes. Esp if you get them “below the muscle” meaning under the pectoral minor and above the pec major. That’s the more natural look which gives surperior poll fullness and a tear drop shape. The implant is beneath your natural breast tissue, even below your superior pec muscle. There could be more possible complications with “above the muscle” due to compacting the glands but all in all, yep, prob just don’t go crazy big. After having a baby and breast feeding the breasts sag more so many women have them re-done at that point

the second technological development was a polyurethane foam coating for the shell of the breast implant; the coating reduced the incidence of capsular contracture, by causing an inflammatory reaction that impeded the formation of a capsule of fibrous collagen tissue around the breast implant. Nevertheless, despite that prophylactic measure, the medical use of polyurethane-coated breast implants was briefly discontinued, because of the potential health-risk posed by 2,4-toluenediamine (TDA), a carcinogenic by-product of the chemical breakdown of the polyurethane foam coating of the breast implant.[9]


A couple of days after your breast augmentation and lift surgery in Miami, you will be able to move about. Your surgical bra or dressing is removed within a few days of your breast augmentation and lift surgery. Within three to seven days after your breast augmentation and lift surgery, Dr. Roudner will most likely give you permission to shower. Your stitches will be removed approximately a week after your breast augmentation and lift procedure in Miami.
If you are contemplating whether your breast augmentation should include a lift, it might be helpful to see my blog post about a patient who had her breast augmentation procedure performed both ways--with and without a lift. For the first surgery she did not elect to have a Breast Lift. However, in the second procedure she did get a Breast Lift. See what a difference a Breast Lift can make with implants!

I have always wondered if it is possible to nurse a baby with implants. Can you do it or must they be removed? I am nursing my girl still and I always said to myself that I would wait to get implants until after having children but I never did enough research to know if you can have implants and still nurse. Now that I am done having babies, I am less interested in getting breasts because I think- lets spend the money on a wild vacation with just me and the hubby instead! hah.

Subfascial – The breast implant is emplaced beneath the fascia of the pectoralis major muscle; the subfascial position is a variant of the subglandular position for the breast implant.[42] The technical advantages of the subfascial implant-pocket technique are debated; proponent surgeons report that the layer of fascial tissue provides greater implant coverage and better sustains its position.[43]

In surgical practice, for the reconstruction of a breast, the tissue expander device is a temporary breast prosthesis used to form and establish an implant pocket for the future permanent breast implant. For the correction of male breast defects and deformities, the pectoral implant is the breast prosthesis used for the reconstruction and the aesthetic repair of a man’s chest wall (see: gynecomastia and mastopexy).

People will do incredibly nasty stuff to their skin to attack wrinkles: grinding off the skin surface with abrasives, burning it off with acid, etc.  One of the weirdest approaches is called Botox.  That's short for botulism toxin, one of the deadliest chemical poisons in nature.  Minute amounts can paralyze small facial muscles, which has a smoothing effect.  You actually want a paralyzed face?
48)  A lot of women inflict malnutrition on themselves because they think something's wrong or shameful about how much they weigh.  Other women undergo mutilation because they think something's wrong or shameful about the shape of their breasts, or other body parts.  In the former case, there's clearly something very flawed about the thought pattern that says "If I punish my body enough, I will be happy."  Is the latter case really very different?

Submuscular placement takes longer to heal from and requires a longer surgery, but it allows for a more natural look and feel. It also leaves the breast tissue open to scanning and keeps scar tissue to a minimum. Subglandular placement is a faster surgery and is simpler to recover from since no muscles are involved. It means a larger implant may be used, but there is the possibility of scar tissue, more noticeable implants and less support for the implants.
Loved this post! It was incredibly honest and raw so thank you! I had mine done but under the muscle and also did them quite young. Best decision I made for myself but I pulled a lot of similar things that you did of not telling anyone/parentals until I had to. The one thing about going under the muscle is that you can’t lift your arms up past your hips for 3 weeks and even then it’s not cute or easy. Also what people don’t tell you is to NOT look at them till the doc pulls of the bandages and says it’s ok.

I think anyone interested in getting implants should google the health issues related to them. Saline implants have a silicone shell and doctors don’t tell you that. They also don’t tell you about the autoimmune issues they can cause. It’s a hush hush world in the land of plastic surgery because implants are their money maker. Google Dr. Lu-Jean Feng and Dr. Chun and Dr. Barnett as they are all specialists removing implants every damn day in order to restore the health in women. Go to FB and search Breast Implant Illness….that will be an eye opener for you! Also, ten years is the time frame for replacement….are you really going to do that? You even questioned yourself if you would do it all over again…because deep down inside, I don’t think you would.
Breast augmentation can be used to improve the contours and size of the breasts. In people with small degrees of sagging, it can achieve a minor lift. Breast augmentation can also balance differences in breast size from right to left, correct a reduction in breast volume which has occurred after pregnancy, and improve the appearance of underdeveloped breasts.
Because of a strong background in Breast Reconstruction after Breast Cancer, and one of the most extensive experiences in cosmetic breast surgery, Dr. Jugenburg is well equipped to determine whether or not you would benefit from adding a breast lift to your breast augmentation, and will make recommendations based on your assessment of you at the time of your consultation.
There is a lot of evidence now coming forward Showing the long term health risks of both saline and silicon implants. Women with strong immunity may not see the effects of this type of surgery for a very long time while others will see it very soon.! Being a massage therapist I rely on my hands and arms and there are a lot of case studies now showing women with breast implants unable to raise their hands, hold their babies or pick up a pen as they have arthritic bones from the toxic build up of these foreign objects in the breast. Autoimmune diseases are now becoming highly prevalent in women with boob jobs and there is double the risk for breast, instestinal and lung cancers. In addition many women get toxic repercussions from these implants especially with silicone leaching into the body with evidence of hair Strand analysis showing silicone toxicity in the blood and organs. In addition saline Breasts garb their issues with bacteria and fungi found living inside the saline implant and leeching out into the chest cavity causing immune diseases and candida overgrowth.

11)  And if the official line is that silicone is now exonerated, then why isn't it okay to inject silicone directly into the body without a container around it, like they used to back in 1960?  No doctor would try that now... they could land in jail.  Some doctors are of the opinion that no facility that accepts blood or organ donations should take any from women who have silicone in their bodies, whether it's in a container or not.


A breast lift with augmentation, also known as augmentation mastopexy, is a procedure that combines two of the most popular breast enhancement surgeries to add volume, reshape, and lift the breasts. Aging, pregnancy, genetics, and weight fluctuation can all contribute to sagging breast tissue and loss of fullness in the upper breast, leading to a “deflated” appearance. Many women who seek either a breast lift or breast augmentation in Fort Worth find that combining the procedures provides them with the best results.
There are a few alternatives to breast augmentation with implants. Fat grafting breast augmentation involves harvesting fat via liposuction from another area of your body and injecting it into your breasts. Fat grafting is typically used to improve the appearance of your breasts after surgery to treat breast cancer, to correct a congenital breast deformity or to even out any imperfections occurring after breast augmentation with implants, such as wrinkles or ripples. The long-term effects of fat grafting to a normal breast are not fully understood, and the degree of augmentation possible via grafting is only modest at best. For these reasons, fat grafting for cosmetic breast augmentation is still considered experimental by many plastic surgeons.
We find that when mastopexy (breast lift) and augmentation are done at the same time, less skin has to be removed, therefore resulting in less scarring. Most of our mastopexy-augmentations are done using the crescent or partial circumareolar incision. Only in very droopy breasts do we use the 'lollipop' incision. To get a better idea of the various techniques and the types of scars associated with each one, see our blog post that covers the scars associated with different breast techniques?.

Patients have reported that their implants delayed their breast cancer diagnosis.22  Research findings have been inconsistent, but a 2013 Canadian systematic review of 12 studies found that women with breast cancer who had breast implants are diagnosed with later-stage cancers than women with breast cancer who did not have implants. This is likely due to delays in breast cancer detection because of implants. 24
If you are undergoing breast implant surgery for reconstruction, you will also need to speak with your surgeon about your personal circumstances, including being treated with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy, as these can affect your risks of complication and the appearance of the reconstructed breast. The surgeon should also speak to you about the amount of breast tissue that will remain after surgery and future screening for breast implant ruptures and breast cancer.

Looking at your photos, you have some volume loss but not a huge amount of ptosis or sagging. We grade sagging into 4 categories. It can range from minimal sagging, to severe ptosis where the nipple and breast tissue is way below your crease at the base of the breast. Implants in your case would improve the fullness and slightly lift the breast and nipple. If you truly want to be a full C-D, then a round, moderate profile silicone implant would work best. An incision in the crease would give you a great result as it would be minimally visible. Eliminating the lift and keeping the implant submuscular would decrease any complications with future breast feeding.

When I had my initial consultation and in the process of choosing my surgeon, it was really important for me to know that my surgeon understood my concerns of breast cancer. My darling mother was unfortunately diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 so having my boobs done was something very close to my heart (literally) and hers. As women we are all taught to monitor our breasts, massage them regularly and feel for lumps, so I was worried that with implants I wouldn’t be able to feel for this. I decided to go with a surgeon who specialised in Breast Oncology so he understood my concerns completely and of course, was able to make my breast look as natural as possible (given he constructs them from scratch most of the time). The good news is ladies, implants or not, doctors are able to monitor your breast exactly the same, so don’t be afraid to have them squished down in the boob machine – they wont burst!.
Post-operative patient surveys about mental health and quality-of-life, reported improved physical health, physical appearance, social life, self-confidence, self-esteem, and satisfactory sexual functioning. Furthermore, the women reported long-term satisfaction with their breast implant outcomes; some despite having suffered medical complications that required surgical revision, either corrective or aesthetic. Likewise, in Denmark, 8 per cent of breast augmentation patients had a pre-operative history of psychiatric hospitalization.[15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23]
Cosmetic surgeons use a variety of incision techniques for breast lift surgery; the exact technique used will vary based on a patient’s existing breast tissue, the amount of excess skin to be removed, and her personal goals. Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend the type of breast lift that will achieve optimal results with the least conspicuous scarring possible.
After surgery, you’ll wear a compression bandage or surgical bra to help position the implants. This support is key to avoid discomfort and achieve optimum cosmetic results. Except for exercise, you’ll be able to return to regular activities in a few days. As your breasts heal and settle, your new appearance will begin to show through over the next few months.
Love this post and appreciate your honesty. I got my boobs done when a couple years ago at the age of 28…almost everyone had something to say like ‘why don’t you wait till after you have kids?’ Or ‘your older now does it really even matter?’ The answer is yes. I’ve always been physically active and a runner so I had quite a bit of pec muscles but my boobs looked like they were deflated! I tried gaing weight and birth control to make them a bit fuller but to no avail. I knew that I wanted a boob job. At the time I was 32B but without a bra I looked like I’d been breastfeeding for 10yrs…and no I don’t have any kids! Anyways I’m 5ft tall and petite and had the same trouble figuring out a size. My plastic surgeon (San Diego) was amazing! We settled on silicone at 300cc’s. Best decision I ever made. I felt so much more feminine instead of having manly pecs I had perky full boobs! I still run so it hasn’t changed my life style and most of the time people can’t tell. I’ve had A LOT of women/friends give me shit for it and argue against it but whatevs to each their own. I’m happy and confident and that’s all that matters. I did this for me. So to anyone out there that’s thinking about it my only advice is to make sure you do you!
After 3 consultations from separate doctor’s offices for breast augmentation I was more than ready to book my surgery. My husband was not convinced and started researching top rated doctors in San Antonio and came across a website www.RealSelf.com. You can search for the top Rated Cosmetic Surgeons in San Antonio. He asked me to consult with a couple more surgeons. He read the reviews for Dr. Gary Lawton and a female surgeon. I booked the consultations with both surgeons. I didn’t care for the female surgeon. My husband came along for the consultation with Dr. Lawton. He was concerned with me having surgery so he wanted to meet with the doctor. The staff was very friendly and professional. Dr. Lawton answered all our questions, told us what to expect before and after surgery and helped us decide what size of implants would look best for my size, height and weight. A week later I booked my surgery. It has been 2 months since my surgery and I LOVE the results I’ve seen so far. My husband and I are very happy. I highly recommend Dr. Lawton.
We agreed on an an augmentation asap, The boost of spirit and confidence in her, increased my lust immeasurably.She not only started to climax fully, more frequently and in succession, but had ejaculations as well.. I would not hesitate to recommend and contribute to anything that was such an esteem booster. Wisely she requested the largest filling possible, If you there, get ’em as big as you can,WE DID – I am a lucky man,
Now that the Brava has been sold to the public for a while, a realistic picture is starting to emerge, and results are mixed.  Often the amount of growth is minimal; in some cases it's substantial.  Rashes are common, welts and blisters are not too rare, and weird infections sometimes happen.  Antibacterial soap may reduce that problem.  A few Brava users find that the suction makes them start lactating.  Those interested in the Brava should probably check some of the criticism by frustrated users, such as this one: Brav-argh.  (And speaking of them, guess what's happened: the word "brav-argh" has now been co-opted as a fake search keyword by sites selling fake breast enlarging pills and creams.)
Most of the time Dr. Teitelbaum does a breast lift/augmentation during the same procedure. However, there are some patients who will get a safer, more accurate, more complete, and longer lasting result if it is done in two stages. Dr. Teitelbaum fully appreciates how much easier it is for patients to get it all done at once, so when he suggests that you consider it in two stages he is doing so for your benefit.
I had a boob job a few months ago at 19, I went from not even a 32A to a 32C which was kinda crazy seeing that I’m very petite and at the time completely flat chested. I too wanted a boob job at 15 so started saving, however my parents had to chip in a little bit. I was as confident as ever after the surgery, but now I’m worried that I look too fake. Maybe people are just getting to me now after hearing all the talk about me getting a boob job, even though I deny it. Should I even do that? I overthink about them during sex now (sorry if that’s tmi) worrying that they probably feel weird/fake since I’m tiny, like I had no fat on me so all they can probably feel is the implant… Any advice on how I could boost my confidence, not stress about this as much, or just advice in general would help!
After reviewing the medical data, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration concluded that TDA-induced breast cancer was an infinitesimal health-risk to women with breast implants, and did not justify legally requiring physicians to explain the matter to their patients. In the event, polyurethane-coated breast implants remain in plastic surgery practice in Europe and in South America; and no manufacturer has sought FDA approval for medical sales of such breast implants in the U.S.[7]
For the first few days after your surgery you can expect some discomfort and swelling, but you should not be in substantial pain. Many patients find they are stiff for the first week, but that too is normal. There may be some bruising as well. If you have severe bruising or pain, we ask you to call us right away. The recovery length depends on several factors, including how large your breast implants are. Those with larger implants will often have more stretching of the skin and muscle, which can lead to a tighter feeling during recovery. If you have a job that is not physical, you may be able to return to work in a week. For people who have a more strenuous job, especially one that involves lifting, a longer period of time away from work may be needed. This also goes for lifting toddlers! If you have small children at home, it’s best to get help around the house so your body can heal well. We will have you wear a compression garment to help reduce swelling and promote healing.

Hair transplants for baldness often produce very disappointing results, and sometimes (especially if repeated) can end up killing off more of your hair follicles than you were losing already.  Scars can sometimes be quite visible, and a poorly done job can make your scalp all bumpy.  (To see how I personally was coping with male pattern baldness at the time of writing this, take a look at my haircut.)
In the vast majority of cases, the implants are placed behind the pectoralis major (chest) muscle. This submuscular position allows the implants to look and feel more natural. In addition, this position results in less interference with mammography and breast feeding. Submuscular implants have less visible edges, and are associated with a lower incidence of capsular contracture, or tight scar.
After an extensive discussion, you and Dr. Lawton will arrive at the surgical plan that will best achieve your goals. It is our commitment that you leave this initial visit with a clear understanding of your surgical options, so you may make an informed decision. We are happy to answer any questions you may think of later by telephone, email, or at another private consultation. There is never an additional charge for these subsequent visits.

CONSIDER THIS: The reason I love wellness so much today is because my journey has paved this path to health. I am a firm believer that my past experiences have shaped my life today. Each & every experience has lead me to share the importance of wellness, health, & balance. Without having ‘stuff’ or adversity or challenges, life would be a real bore.
The development of silicone progressed to meet the needs of the aircraft-engineering industry during World War II. Being soft and inert, it attracted interest from the medical field too. First generation implants (1962-1970) had thick shells, thick gel, and a Dacron patch in the posterior aspect. It had a tear drop shape. Second generation implants (1970-1982) had thin shells, thin gel and a round shape. Third generation implants (from 1982 onwards) had thicker shells, thicker gel and a round shape. Fourth generation implants (from 1986 onwards) have features similar to the third generation, except that they had textured surface. They are available in round as well as anatomic shape. Fifth generation implants (from 1993 onwards) have enhanced cohesive silicone gel and textured silicone surface. They are available in anatomic and round shapes.[5]

While breast implants can sometimes provide a subtle lift – depending on their shape and size – a breast augmentation performed alone is not typically able to correct moderate to substantial drooping. Likewise, a breast lift may be able to slightly improve upper pole fullness in the breasts, but a mastopexy by itself will not generally be able to significantly increase the overall size of the breasts. As a result, patients wishing to address all – or a combination – of these concerns may be ideal candidates for a breast augmentation with a lift, also referred to as augmentation-mastopexy.
Since the 1990s, reviews of the studies that sought causal links between silicone-gel breast implants and systemic disease reported no link between the implants and subsequent systemic and autoimmune diseases.[63][77][78][79] Nonetheless, during the 1990s, thousands of women claimed sicknesses they believed were caused by their breast implants, including neurological and rheumatological health problems.
Despite reporting that women with implants were between two and three times as likely to report those symptoms, the researchers, who were funded by a silicone manufacturer, concluded that long-term exposure to breast implants “does not appear to be associated with” autoimmune “symptoms or diseases.” However, the symptoms they reported can be from autoimmune diseases.
If you are like you say you are, with the nipple-areola above the breast crease. Then an augmentation is all you will need usually. When you lost weight, you lost volume and the breast sagged some. If you can replace the amount of volume you had before, then you are back to where you were. To do this, you need to let the breast tissue rise up over the implant. The best way to do this is with an implant over the muscle. To give the best chance of not having scar develop around the implant in this position, I generally use a textured implant and prefer silicone over saline.
Combining a breast lift with implants is a good way to get the most from your surgery. You don't need to add as much volume to the implant when you also have a breast lift, which will position the breasts correctly and give them shape. When these two procedures are combined, your breasts will increase in cup size but also look better than with just one procedure.
Size is not the only aspect of the implant to consider when making your selection. The shape and profile of the implant also play important roles on the look of the final results. Round implants, which are the most commonly used shape, are symmetrical, natural-looking, and are usually not able to rotate out of their position. Shaped gel implants—such as the Natrelle® 410—are designed to mimic the anatomical shape of a breast and provide a natural shape for women whose breasts lack a significant profile.
Before surgery you should have a consultation with your surgeon. Be prepared to ask questions about the surgeon’s experience, your surgery and expected outcomes. The FDA has provided a list of questions that may help guide your discussion. The surgeon should be able to discuss whether you are a good candidate for breast implants, the different type of implants, options for size, shape, surface texture, and placement based on your particular circumstances, as well as the risks and benefits of implant surgery. The surgeon should also be able to provide you with before and after pictures of other patients to help you better understand your expectations and potential outcomes from surgery.
Breast Implant Revision: The removal or replacement of breast implants to alter the size and type of a patient’s breast implant or to correct undesired results or complications from a primary breast augmentation procedure. Most patients seeking implant revision come to us with a goal of restoring the appearance and contours of their breasts. View breast implant revision photos.
The reconstruction of the breast(s) with grafts of autologous fat is a non-implant alternative to further surgery after a breast cancer surgery, be it a lumpectomy or a breast removal – simple (total) mastectomy, radical mastectomy, modified radical mastectomy, skin-sparing mastectomy, and subcutaneous (nipple sparing) mastectomy. The breast is reconstructed by first applying external tissue expansion to the recipient-site tissues (adipose, glandular) to create a breast-tissue matrix that can be injected with autologous fat grafts (adipocyte tissue); the reconstructed breast has a natural form, look, and feel, and is generally sensate throughout and in the nipple-areola complex (NAC).[120] The reconstruction of breasts with fat grafts requires a three-month treatment period – begun after 3–5 weeks of external vacuum expansion of the recipient-site tissues. The autologous breast-filler fat is harvested by liposuction from the patient's body (buttocks, thighs, abdomen), is refined and then is injected (grafted) to the breast-tissue matrices (recipient sites), where the fat will thrive.
Breast augmentation fills out small or asymmetrical breasts by placing saline or silicone implants in front of or behind the chest muscle. Depending on the shape of the implant used, breast augmentation can produce a round breast shape (with equal fullness on top and bottom of the breast) or a teardrop-shaped breast (with a gentle slope and more fullness at the bottom of the breast).

Silicone Migration. Research has shown that silicone gel in implants can break down to liquid silicone at normal body temperatures, and there are reports of silicone leakage and migration from implants to the lymph nodes and other organs.11 What happens if liquid silicone migrates to the lungs, liver, or other organs? A study published by the Royal Academy of Medicine in Scotland found that a woman with a broken silicone gel implant in her calf was coughing up silicone identical to the kind in her implant.12 This has potentially serious implications for women with breast implants, since silicone gel breast implants are considerably larger and closer to the lungs than calf implants.
