What Is The Minimum Age You Should Be To Have A Boob Job
Breast Implants: The fda requires that a woman be at least 18 years of age to get saline breast implants and 22 years of age to get silicone gel implants. There are also certain health conditions that preclude placing breast implants. Other medical conditions can put one at higher risk for complications. Consult with a plastic surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgery to learn about your options. ...Read more
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. The shell of the implant is made of a flexible silicone elastomer. The inside is filled with either silicone ...Read more
Good question: The same could be asked of any breasts in 30 years. The only thing that can be guaranteed is change. Breast implants are not lifetime devices, which means they could fail (leak). Gravity will also have it effects, as does the normal changes in the skin and breast tissue that occur with age. Enjoy the results now, but be prepared to maintain them later too. ...Read more
You should pay!: Though your boyfriend may be offering to pay, you are having the surgery, and must choose to have it for you, not him. Of course, any intimate partner may "benefit" from your improved self-esteem, but if you split, will he want his money? Or your implants? Our cost in mpls is $5900 for everything, but be cautious about having "someone else" pay for surgery that you undergo. The risks are yours! ...Read more
5-10% lose sensation: Most breast implant patients will lose some skin sensation after surgery (regardless of incision placement), but this mostly recovers. About 5-10% of patients will permanently lose nipple sensation, which is a bummer if this is your "favorite" nerve! you need to accept this in order to proceed with surgery, and if it does occur, it's not because of "bad" or careless surgery-just nerve location! ...Read more
Are you serious?: Breast implants are it a need even in the event of breast cancer. They are an elective surgical option that carries risks, serious ones, that should be fully understood. You need to know the potential complications and outcomes and alternatives. You should insist that your surgeon discuss these with you. This is a lifelong undertaking and should not be decided on a whim. Society sets an age of 18. ...Read more
It depends...: In most cases, we generally wait until a patient is at least 18 years of age before proceeding with a breast augmentation. But that age may be somewhat flexible given pre-existing circumstances such as severe asymmetry. I also try and assess underlying reasons for the surgery and level of maturity of the patient (as I do with a patient at any age!). ...Read more
Foreign body: The body reacts to implants by makin a scar around them, this scar can harden over time, and needs to be removed at some stage. Implants are not permanent, and need to be changed. You can have chronic pain, back pain, and sometimes even a poor cosmetic result, depending on your surgeon and also how your body reacts to the implant. Your nipple sensation can be reduced occasionally, and a scar. ...Read more
Reason & Expectation: Consider the reasons for the procedure. The pros and the cons. Be clear to yourself and your surgeon about what you expect, and absorb as much information as possible before making the decision. Breast implants may require maintenance, and you goals may change with time. Research your doctor too. The asps, plastic surgery board, abms and state medical boards can help. ...Read more
Absolutely!: Breast implants do not prevent pregnancy. They may decrease the amount of milk made during lactation, but do not change or taint the milk. Breast feeding is recommended, with or without breast implants. Many breast augmentation patients successfully breast feed. If you are currently trying to get pregnant, wait until after delivery as your breast may change with pregnancy. ...Read more
Gravity never quits: Gravity and time alter everything, but don't let that stop you. Talk to a reputable board certified plastic surgeon. They can guide you. ...Read more
Yes: I am not sure if you are asking about implants or reduction, but both have small risk of complication (e.g. Implants might get infected, after reduction there might be a problem with viability and sensitivity of nipple/areola). However, a woman might not be able to breast feed a baby after a breast surgery. ...Read more
Why?: Why do you assume that this is something that you need to be attractive. Your personality and confidence will make you a more disable partner than uplifted breast. Talk to some body that deals with body image issues, a counselor. Or go find a plastic surgeon that will help you with that. Would suggest the former rather than the latter as step one. Exercises might help. ...Read more
Depends on you.: Cup sizes are poor determinants of final breast size, but if you are a large woman, wanting large breasts is not unreasonable--if your anatomy allows this. You need to see a plastic surgeon experienced in breast augmentation (and abps-certified) and let him/her know your goals. Then s/he can examine you and determine if this is possible anatomically. Get and follow good advice! ...Read more
Possible: Some surgeons place the implant by dissecting laterally and the sensory nerve of the nipple may be damaged. Some surgeons don't and it would be unlikely to damage the nerve. Also placing the implant though the arellano may damage the sensation, the inframammary incision is safer. If you are very flat and want a very large implant, the nerve will be quite stretched and may be more or less sensitive. ...Read more
Mostly, yes!: No woman starts with absolutely symmetrical breasts--measurements prove that! But most women look (and a few measure) much more closely after surgery, so every patient needs to understand that if asymmetry is severe, nice improvements can be made. If symmetry is quite close, we do our best to keep it that way, but swelling, healing, scar formation, and other factors can make exact symmetry rare! ...Read more
Pros and Cons: Liposuction and breast augmentation are a fairly common combination. Each case must be evaluated independently by an experienced professional, but in general, the combination can be safely performed in tandem. The downside is two areas to heal after surgery. The upside is two areas of improvement, with one recovery period. ...Read more
Yes, but ask your Dr: You may want to wait until you are fully healed and he implants have settled before wearing underwire. Ask your plastic surgeon fir his preference, but this is what I tell my patients. If you have incisions under the breast, underwire may irritate them. So the answer is yes, but check with your doctor. ...Read more
Variable: Breast implants, if that is what you mean, are not lifetime devices. It is hard to predict how a patient will go though life with her implants, but there are potential problems that can appear as times go by: infection, capsular contracture and rupture are a few of those. Now, if they happen and when they will happen is difficult to predict for an individual. Statistically there are numbers. ...Read more
Personal matter: Do not do your boob job because how men like it. Do it the way you like them to feel. They will like it no matter what. ...Read more
Yes, reason is: It is a medical problem, large breast is the cause of severe disabling back pains, if you prove this medical documentation most of the time reduction mammoplasty (breast reduction) is covered. Correcting uneven breast is cosmetic procedure which is not covered. ...Read more
I want to get a boob job to get a life and bigger what does that's cost? I want to get a lift and get up to a c cup
Depends.: Costs will vary;general range $5-10, 000. The breast lift (mastopexy) operation serves to raise the position of the breasts and nipple/areola complexes on a woman's chest wall. This operation is generally done by removing skin and thereby tightening up the breast skin envelope. Sometimes, to add additional fullness/volume, breast augmentation surgery is done at the same time. ...Read more
The cost varies.: The cost varies by community, but should not be the primary determinant of the procedure. The lowest cost, can become the most expensive if revisions are needed. Be certain to discuss how revision surgery is handled with your plastic surgeon. Only allow someone you trust to operate on you. ...Read more
Botox teenager: Botox cosmetic is a great option to help reduce facial wrinkles and improve skin appearance. Most plastic surgeons and dermatologists will not treat a teenager with Botox cosmetic. Basic skin care, including sun block and chemical peels, are generally the first step for younger patients. ...Read more
Sorry...: Currently, there isn't a good non-surgical method. The brava, a suction-based device for breast enlargement, had disappointing results when used by itself. There are no creams, pills or other methods that work. ...Read more
?: If you truly have cancer "running in the family" you may need an evaluation by a professional with expertise in risk assessment and genetics. That will not only affect your decision for augmentation but may also lead to ways to reduce your risk and/or increase surveillance. Talk to your gyn or family doc about this. ...Read more
I just had. A boob job done. About 4 months ago now I do relaxation massage I do about 7 a week. My question is I won't do any harm to my new boobs?
No: Breast implants are not related to breast cancer risk. They have not been shown to increase the rate of breast cancer. ...Read more
