Breast implants are simple cosmetic enhancements that can give a patient the breasts she desires. Implants, which are made from gel or fluid-like materials such as silicon, are surgically implanted to assist in reconstruction, re-shaping, or re-sizing of the patient’s breast area.
Thanks to current technology, breast implant surgery is not complex and can often be completed on an out-patient basis. The patient visits an operating room and is given general anesthesia; the surgeon then makes incisions on the original breasts in an area where scarring will be least problematic (often around the nipple or beneath the breast). The implants are then inserted and the incisions are closed up. Specific details of the procedure, such as placement of the implants or recovery time, vary widely by patient.
A properly-done breast implantation should not have negative effects on life after the surgery. Results, in the form of an enhanced shape or size of the breasts, are visible immediately. The incisions heal quickly, although there is sometimes minor swelling, and the patient must be careful with the surgery sites for approximately two weeks afterwards. In rare cases, infections or other problems may develop, and the patient will require follow-up care. A person who is later treated for any medical condition should advise the professional in charge that breast implants were previously done.
Individual results may vary.
