Getting a breast implant removal
Breast implants do not last forever. Bodies change, hormones fluctuate, and age makes breasts change shape and appearance. Breast implants tend to last around 10-15 years, and will need to be removed or replaced after this amount of time. This time frame depends on your individual needs and desires. If you are no longer satisfied with how your breasts look you can get a breast implant removal or replacement surgery. Sometimes implants can leak causing silicone to leak out of the implant and for scar tissue around the implant to harden. If this happens consult your doctor to see when you can get an impatient removal.
A burst implant can be dangerous and should be removed as soon as possible. There are signs that can indicate that your breast implant has ruptured or leaked. A major sign is that your breasts have changed in size or shape. Other signs include pain, swelling, and firmness. If you experience any of these signs make an appointment with your Breast Augmentation Utah doctor. In some cases breast implants burst but there are no signs. This is called a silent rupture. It is recommended to get an MRI screening every 2-3 years after getting an implant to ensure you do not have a silent rupture.
After a breast implant removal surgery follow your surgeon’s instructions for recovery. This may include wearing a support bra or other garment. You may also be given a compression garment to lessen the swelling. In addition to the garments you may have a drain which will drain any excess blood or fluids out of the area. There are certain risks associated with these surgeries but your doctor will tell you about any signs that something may be wrong, pay attention and watch the area as it is healing. Your doctor will schedule follow up visits to ensure everything is fine and healing properly.
