Absolutely, but...: Looking natural depends on the eye of the beholder. Breast implants are just like fashion accessories, most women pick what looks good on them! a natural feel depends on the a) size of the implant; b) silicone gel or saline; c) your own breast volume. The smaller the implant and the larger your own breast, the more natural the look and feel. Also, in general silicone gel is softer than saline. ...Read moreSee 12 more doctor answers
Fat injection breast: Yes, you can have fat injection performed, but this will probably not give you the size you're looking for. Most breast augmentation patients are thin, and just don't have enough fat for transfer. In addition, the amount of fat which "takes" is variable, and many patients require a second procedure. For most patients, implants are a more reliable and aesthetic option. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
Do breast implants increase the risk of cancer? My friend just got breast implants. Does having implants effect the chance that she could get breast cancer at some point in the future? Do implants make it easier or harder to detect any lumps?
No: Breast implant do not increase or decrease the risk of having breast cancer. Breast examination should be just like any other woman. When you get a mammography, you need to tell your technician that you have implants so they can have special views. Very little breast tissue may be masked with implants. Feeling lumps can actually be easier because the breast is pushed forward by the implant. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Removal of breast implants - do they take some of your breast tissue out along with the old implant?
Sometimes: Depending on the reason for breast implant removal and the condition of the implants, usually the goal would be to leave the breast tissue alone as much as possible to preserve whatever breast remains. Sometimes if there is a ruptured implant with thick capsular scar tissue, it can be difficult to avoid removing some of the surrounding breast tissue. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
No: The density (weight per volume) of silicone-gel filled implants is similar to body tissues. Saline implants have water density, slightly higher--the human body floats (barely) on water. But breast tissue, having a higher fat content, is more buoyant than the rest of the body, and thus lighter than either implant type. But women are seldom aware of the weight, since the chest muscles support them ...Read more

Will i need to keep getting mammograms after breast reconstruction? Is there enough of my own breast tissue left after mastectomy and breast reconstruction to make imaging worthwhile?
Yes and No : If you had a single breast complete mastectomy, no more mammogram on that side. However, if you did not have both breast mastectomies, you still have the other bresst that is at increased risk given the history. So you need to continue screening mammograms for the other breast. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Very Little if Any: Be careful. Breast augmentation surgery is meant to increase breast size, not lift breasts. If a woman has experienced a significant change in position of the breasts and/or position of the nipple/areola complexes, breast lifting is usually necessary. Important to make the correct diagnosis and plan the appropriate surgical procedure; otherwise, you will end up dissatisfied with the outcome. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Implant Weight: Depends of how fibrous the breast tissue in question is. In general, breast tissue is mostly fat tissue. Fat in general is less dense and will float when placed in water. Saline breast implants are mainly salt water. A gallon of fat will have an approximate weight of 7.39 lbs, a gallon of salt water will have a weight of 8.35 lbs and a gallon of silicone will have an approximate weight of 19 lb. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Due to childbirth & nursing, my breast size is now 38dd w marked ptosis. Would breast reduction or augmentation be appropriate for much needed "lift"?
When to lift: In cosmetic breast surgery, we evaluate the size of the breasts as they match the patient's desire, the quality and fullness of the skin envelope, and the nipple position. Breast reduction will reduce the breast size, reshape the envelope and reposition the nipple. Breast lift will tighten the envelope and raise the nipple. Lift with augmentation is generally used to enlarge and raise the breast. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Ways to help breast be a little more perky without surgery..... I'm in my mid 20's and my breast just keep sagging....Help.

It's completely scarless and with no recovery time. Otherwise, you can only prevent your breasts from getting worse by wearing a bra 24/7. Good luck from nyc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Breast implants, butt implants, and love handles lipo suction. Could all of these be done in one operation?
Not usually advised: The recovery following butt implants can be problematic as many surgeons request that you not sleep on your back for two weeks. This can be extremely difficult because it will be nearly impossible for your to sleep on your stomach following most breast implant procedures, leaving you to recover on your sides only. I would not typically advise simultaneous breast and butt surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
