Yes: Sle and other connective tissue auto immune disorders can affect wound healing, but the overwhelming evidence suggests no correlation between silicone breast implants and a higher incidence of those diseases than found in the general population. It is best to seek the opinion of a board certified plastic surgeon who can further discuss the risks and benefits of breast augmentation with you.

It depends.: If you required sutures, and they were placed properly, you need to have them removed about ten to 14 days after they were placed. You want to avoid direct sun exposure to the scar for the next year. Starting about two weeks after your stitches have been removed, massaging a few minutes every day in the shower with shampoo or conditioner can help the scar settle down which may take a full year.

Not for weight loss.: If you are overweight, the treatment is definitely not liposuction. Liposuction is intended for contouring the body and re-shaping areas of bulging. A major weight loss needs to be accomplished through lifestyle changes with a commitment to healthy eating and proper and regular exercise. Once a closer to ideal weight is reached, there may be a role for liposuction or other body contouring surgery.
