I have a boob job. What will happen in 30 years?

I have a boob job. What will happen in 30 years?

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

How much will a boob job cost my bf?

How much will a boob job cost my bf?

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

Has any one lost feeling after a boob job?

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

If i get a boob job can I still have kids afterwards?

If i get a boob job can I still have kids afterwards?

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

Hoping you can tell me, is boob job safe or worth it before having kids?

However, a woman might not be able to breast feed a baby after a breast surgery. ...Read more

I don't want a boob job but i would like to make them bigger somehow. How?

I don't want a boob job but i would like to make them bigger somehow. How?

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

Is a 36 ddd too big for a boob job?

Is a 36 ddd too big for a boob job?

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

Do you lose sensitivity after boob job?

Do you lose sensitivity after boob job?

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

Should breasts llook the same after boob job?

Should breasts llook the same after boob job?

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
