One of the best ways to improve your body’s contour is to undergo breast augmentation processes. One option is having breast implants. While the procedure is a popular choice for many women who want a standout figure, there are still those of you who are not convinced of undergoing one. Erase all your doubts about breast implants. Here are reasons behind why you should not be worried about it.
A Lot of Benefits to be Yielded
Remember that breast augmentation is a very popular cosmetic procedure for women who want to enhance the shape and size of their breasts. As a result, you become more confident about the way you look knowing that your physical appearance will improve and that you will achieve better body proportion after the procedure. It also corrects sagging breasts that is common especially when you have given birth or even as you age. With these benefits, there is definitely no reason to worry about the process.
Replacement of Breast Implants Vary from One Person to Another
There are different types of implants that you can opt for should you want to undergo the procedure. The first choice is the saline implant which may leak after 10 years of having it implanted. This will entail additional cost on your part plus of course the fact that you may have to undergo the procedure again can be quite alarming. You have to remember though that effects may vary from one person to another and it is not always necessary to have it replaced if it the implant did not leak.
The second option is the silicone implant. There was a study made by the FDA regarding this type of implant which concluded that one in every five women needs to replace the implant after 10 years. The reason behind this conclusion is due to problems encountered with the implant during this span of time. Among these problems is capsular contracture which was common in 1 in 5 women who have opted for silicone implants. This have led to the misconception that all silicone implants need to be replaced at least once every 10 years.
More on the Study Made by the FDA
The study was actually conducted by the FDA years back in 2011, when silicone breast implants were barely new in the market. The structure of implants back then is far more different from those that are being used by expert plastic surgeons today. They are prone to leakage and all other problems which are known signs that they need to be replaced.
During this modern day and age when several other studies about the effects of breast implants have already been made, these effects are no longer as rampant as they were in the past. This is good news since you do not necessarily need to have your implants replaced in 10 years. Just by taking care of yourself and going through follow-up checkups with your surgeon, everything will surely be smooth-sailing.
There is really no reason to be worried about breast implants. All you need to do is to contact an expert surgeon who knows what he is doing when it comes to this process and you will surely reap the benefits you expect from the breast augmentation procedure.
