Yes: While there are special techniques to try and visualize as much of the breast tissue as possible, implants do partially obstruct full evaluation of the breast. This is particularly true when the implants are placed above the pectoralis muscle; it is always best to place these behind the muscle. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
A medical device that is used to augment the size of the breast by increasing the volume of the breast mound. Implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures and are surgically inserted either under the breast tissue or in a deeper plane under the muscle.

Depends: For smaller volume increases, fat transfer works as well as implants. However for larger volumes, it may take several stages and is more difficult to get the same result as an implant. It also depends on the amount of breast tissue you start with, because fat transfer needs some tissue to survive. Generally speaking, it is more economical to get implants. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There are other concerns about capsular contracture and ptosis which are discussed in the video. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No but.....: There is no direct link but there are concerns with the potential for implants to interfere with the detection of cancer. Particularly using mammograms. Special views (eklund) must be obtained. Alhtough there may be a delay in diagnosis, there has not been shown to be any effect on survival. With mri, surveillance is improved and may supplant mammography. As stated, alcl may be increased but rare. ...Read moreSee 8 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

Not really: Exercise is always a good idea and while stronger pectoral muscles (as well as a stronger core and back muscles) can help reduce the appearance of sagging there really isn't anything other than surgery to actually lift or firm the breast. Breasts are made of fatty tissue, not muscle. To actually lift saggy breasts, consult with a board certified plastic surgeon regarding mastopexy. Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

Perhaps, not usually: The density of silicone implants is very close to breast tissue as it approximates the density of water. However this is not typically the case as most breast mass is a combination of tissue/gland (more dense than silicone) and fat which is less dense than silicone. ...Read more
