Living with breast implants

After having breast implants, so much may follow thereafter. To begin with, they become part and parcel of your life. Since this is a life time commitment, you must be prepared to handle what comes your way.

Revealing to others that you have a breast implant

One issue that comes to mind all the time is whether to tell or not to tell others. Family and friends are the closest people and the decision on whether to tell them or not is really within your discretion. You have to decide yourself which implant is best for you whether round or teardrop implants are the two common choices available at Cosmetic surgery Brisbane clinic. If you decide to keep it to yourself, its fine since you will not worry about their reaction; if on the other hand you decide to disclose, be ready for the reaction that will follow.

Active life

This will particularly affect you if you are athletic in nature. You will be concerned as to whether the implant will affect your participation in these activities like running and swimming. In the same vein, you may find yourself opting for sporting activities that do not in any way affect your implants or the implants that affect your activities. However, those who have used the implants for athletics will tell you the discomfort that one experiences when the implants shift from within. This discomfort will however go as you get used to it.

Breast implants and pregnancy

Another concern that you will have is the impact of breast implants and future pregnancy. This is because you are not sure if the implants will get into the way of the breast implants. You would want to know:

·         If the breast size will change  in shape and size
·         If  you will be able to let milk the normal way
·         If the skin will stretch or sag

The reassuring thing about implants is that there are changes that can occur in your breast at this time and it is therefore possible to revert to normal size and shape. As for the sagging part, this is normal whether you have received the implants or not. In any case, it is not a must you have breast implants if you are not happy with the likely results. You may opt for breast lift instead.

Breast Feeding After Breast Enhancement Surgery

Other fears relate to breast feeding. The truth of the matter is that you will be able to breast feed the normal way. This is because the breast implants do not remove natural breasts. The milk duct is intact hence milk will come out the natural way. However, the surgeon will need to be careful during making incisions as the peri-areolar contains milk ducts which can get cut, lead to reduced milk for breast feeding.

A highly qualified surgeon will make an incision below the breast so as to avoid interfering with the milk let-down. Let the surgeon know your concerns before the breast implants are fitted. 

What is important to remember is that breast implants are cosmetic and their aim is to change the appearance of the breasts without changing their function.
