What is the cheapest way to get breast implants?

Go for Quality: Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure and should only be performed by a qualified surgeon. You should seek out a board certified plastic surgeon, not just someone who claims to be a "cosmetic surgeon". The cost can range from $5-10, 000. Ask to see pictures and ask a lot of questions. It is about the results, no the cost.

Will my breasts sag if I have breast implants when I get older?

Will my breasts sag if I have breast implants when I get older?

Yes: Your breasts will change with age regardless if you have implants or don't. What I tell patients who ask about implants and droop is the following: if you have implants and your twin sister does not, and 30 years go by and you have them removed, both of you will look normal, but you will be more droopy than your sister. Droop is something that can be corrected at the time of implants.

Doesn't alter band: Implants generally are not intended to selectively alter your band width which is a reflection of your "rib cage" aka thorax. Implants are generally intended to increase breast volume (cup size) and may incidentally increase the band width.

I want to get breast implants. What size do you think that is not to small or too big?

Communication.: What size you would like your breast to be after breast augmentation will be a very personal decision for you to make. I would suggest that you look at pictures and see what size of breasts you find attractive. The use of “sizers" under your bra may also be helpful. Then, careful selection of plastic surgeon and careful communication of your goals will also be key. Again pictures help...

Can you get fat transferred from unwanted parts of the body into the breasts as an alternative to breast implants?

Fat to the breasts: The simple answer is yes but the more comprehensive answer is...It depends. Fat grafting to the breast is a valid procedure but is still in its relative infancy. As such, many surgeons practicing this technique may not have the years of experience it takes to perform this procedure as effectively as they can with an implant alone. Check qualifications and experience before choosing a surgeon!

I can't keep my weight steady, I fluctuate 40 pounds up and down, does it matter if I get breast implants removed at high or low weight?

Stable Weight.: Generally, best to undergo elective breast surgery when you have achieved a long-term stable weight. Doing so will potentially increase the safety of the operation and allow you and your plastic surgeon to determine whether any additional surgery (for example breast lifting) will be beneficial at the time of breast implant removal. Avoidance of weight fluctuation will eliminate one variable...

Breast Implants: Communicating expectations for final breast appearance after breast implants can be a challenge for the patient and surgeon. Making the decision for no treatment, implant replacement or implant removal is best done with your surgeon or get a second opinion from a plastic surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgery.

I had breast implants because it was suggested that it would improve my confidence, thus making me happy. Neither of these things happened. Should I get them removed?

I had breast implants because it was suggested that it would improve my confidence, thus making me happy. Neither of these things happened. Should I get them removed?

Not right away: Hopefully you took plenty of time to research your decision for breast implants with a full and clear understanding of the expectations. Confidence and happiness can be elusive in many people. While cosmetic surgery can help boost confidence, it certainly is not a prescription with guaranteed success. Before considering implant removal speak with several health professionals seeking sound advice.
