If my breasts sag, do I need a breast augmentation or a breast lift?
It’s really going to depend on how much your breasts sag. In general, if you can place a pen underneath your breast and it doesn’t drop to the ground, you probably need a breast lift. Another indicator is nipple position. If your nipples sit below the crease of your breasts, you will probably need a lift.
I am worried about scars on my breast. Are they bad?
Scars are probably the single biggest deterrent for patients when it comes to any kind of surgical procedure. This is especially true with the breasts. They are such a vital part of our identity as women that it can be frightening to think about scars marring their beauty. But here’s the thing to remember with scars on the breast: they typically heal really well. Furthermore, I have a lot of experience with breast augmentations, and take the necessary time to make sure that any scars are as inconspicuous as possible. I hide them in the crease of the breast or around the nipple. The other thing with scars is that they always look pink at first, but they will get better with time. However, it can take up to a year so patience is important.
I keep reading about breast implant illness. Is this a real thing and should I be worried?
There is not a lot known about breast implant illness. It is really a catch-all term for a group of auto-immune symptoms that are thought to be tied to a woman’s breast implants. The most common symptoms are brain fog, fatigue, and joint pain. Breast implants are the most studied medical device in history, but we are still talking about a foreign device in the body. It is conceivable that some patient’s bodies might react to them. A few plastic surgeons dismiss breast implant illness out of hand. I do not. I think that if a patient has exhausted her medical options and found no underlying cause for her symptoms, and she wants her implants removed, I remove them. Period. My job is to be your ally, always.
What about ALCL? Can my implants give me cancer?
ALCL is extremely rare yet very real. The FDA as well as Canada Health are taking it very seriously. So far, all of the cases of ALCL, which is a very small percentage of the overall number of patients with breast implants, involve textured implants only. If you have textured implants, there is no need to panic. It does not mean that you will get ALCL. But you do want to pay attention, and if you get an unexplained fever then go to your plastic surgeon. When caught early, ALCL is totally curable. Really, the best way to stay on top of your breast implant health in general is to take advantage of your yearly follow up. I encourage all of my breast augmentation patients to come in and see me annually. It gives me the opportunity to check on you physically, and to discuss any breaking news that may be causing anxiety.
What size implant will give me a D cup?
It is impossible to say without assessing you in person. Also, cup size is a really poor indicator of your actual breast volume. This is because bra cup measurements vary widely between manufacturers. The better thing to focus on is the “look” you want to achieve. Once you have an idea, schedule a consultation to speak with a plastic surgeon. He or she can take your chest measurements and discuss the best options for delivering on your goals.
How do I prevent capsular contracture?
Capsular contracture is a hardening of the skin and tissues around the breast implant. It can be unsightly and painful. We now know that the risk of capsular contracture is directly linked to the breast and breast implant’s exposure to bacteria. So, the best way to prevent it is to see a really experienced breast surgeon who practices sterile technique. During the consultation, ask the surgeon about his or her capsular contracture rate as well as what is done if a patient gets it. Personally, my rate is really low (I have only ever had one patient who developed capsular contracture). But in the rare instance where a patient does get capsular contracture, I replace her implants without professional charges in the first year (OR and anesthesia fees would apply, however). Some breast implant companies warranty their breast implants against rupture and capsular contracture — they replace the implants and pay for part of the surgery as well.
