Is It Safe To Get Breast Implants If I Have Type 1 Diabetes
Yes: If your diabetes is well controlled and your overall health is otherwise good, then it should be safe for you to get breast implants.

I was diagnosed with severe sun damage on lower lip. In the end of December, I treated it with Aldara for eight weeks. I got a biopsy done today and one spot is not cleared. I am getting breast implants on February, 6th. Is it safe to get the implants?
SAFE w preparation: The risk of surgery is no greater for breast implants in diabetic individuals as any other procedure in a diabetic patient. The same concerns such as wound healing or infection are present and should be addressed. Tight control of the diabetes as well as close peri-operative monitoring of blood sugars with management guided by your physicians, surgeons, and anesthesiologist are advised.See 2 more doctor answers
Breast augmentation: Diabetes can impair wound healing, so you want to make sure your blood sugars are in the normal range both before and after surgery. The good news is that you are dealing with a small incision, but make sure you are medically cleared from your primary doctor before undergoing surgery.See 3 more doctor answers

Yes: Most plastic surgeons feel comfortable performing breast augmentation surgery while patients remain on birth control medications. However, although controversial, some plastic surgeons are also concerned about the potential for deep venous thrombosis (clots), which may be a greater risk for patients who are on certain types of oral contraceptives.See 3 more doctor answers
Yes, it is safe!: Intense pulsed light treatments are broadband (full spectrum), and do not use lasers (single wavelength) or ionizing (ultraviolet or x-ray) wavelengths. They are for pigmented and vascular lesions (superficial ones) and sometimes hair reduction. These energies do not penetrate beyond a mm or two, so your implants will not be affected in any way. The same applies to laser hair removal-perfectly ok!See 3 more doctor answers
Saline vs Silicone: Right now, both are considered safe by the FDA. Know that BOTH saline and implants have an outer silicone shell. Both have similar risk of capsular contracture, infection and scarring. Silicone implants feel more like real breasts. However, when placed behind the pectoralis muscle, it's difficult to tell the difference. In-depth Plastic Surgery consultation is recommended to find out what's bestSee 4 more doctor answers

Sometimes, if the: Breast size is too large, it can look bulky, particularly when the breast implants are very wide, and extending past the side of the rib cage.

I want to get breast implants, I lack confidence because of my breasts, but I suffer from graves' disease, would it be safe?
It should be: Having said that, true active grave's disease can effect your blood pressure and cardiac function. It is important to have this under control at the time of undergoing general anesthesia. If this is the case, you should have no concerns about proceeding and the surgery should otherwise proceed uneventfully with risks comparable to any other individual.See 3 more doctor answers

Yes: It is perfectly fine to get breast implants if you have an implantable defibrillator. You simply need to have the defibrillator turned off during the surgery so that the cautery does not interfere with it. This can usually be done very quickly prior to the surgery; the device is then turned back on once the surgery is complete. I hope that helps!See 5 more doctor answers
Can you nurse with breast implants? If I get breat implants and then get pregnant, will I still be able to breast feed?
You can but risks?: The ability to nurse depends on whether the ductal system was interrupted or nerve supply to the nipple may have been compromised. However, that is usually rare, and in most instances, women with a straightforward breast aug particularly if performed through the crease incision, are able to nurse. The next question is: if you can, should you? That is more difficult and there is great controversy.See 5 more doctor answers
Yes w clearance: Yes as long as it is stable and well controlled this is not an issue. You should inform both your cardiologist and anesthesiologist well ahead of scheduling surgery.See 4 more doctor answers
