Avatar f tn when it comes to breast cancer but the risk is certainly lowered be a great amount. Implants can also make it more difficult for any future discovery of an abnormality if it should occur. I'm still in favor of it in your case though. Good Luck ....
5644233 tn?1371557686 I am looking to get breast implants. I am a small A and want to be a B or so. Does anyone know which implant is better to get? How much does it usually cost? How long is the recovery? Any of these questions will help me make a closer choice :)!
Avatar f tn I prefer breast implants to be placed under the muscle. I have very little breast tissue and have heard that people with no breast tissue or little breast tissue will get better results if the implants are placed under the muscle. And I will most probably be getting implants within couple of months. I have already talked to a surgeon Dr. Robert Backstein of Steeles Avenue Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Toronto, but haven't confirmed of getting the surgery.
Avatar n tn I am in the "asking questions" stage before seeing a plastic surgeon as I am considering breast implants to enlarge a "barely A" to a "C" cup. I am wondering if cost of implants has anything to do with outcome. One nurse told me about tissue expanders before the actual implant will give a better look, any truth to this? Also, since the shell of the implant is silicone any reason to not choose silicone fill?
Avatar f tn You should not have gone for breast implants. See, not everyone are good candidates for breast implants. The surgeon will conduct some physical examinations and then only he allows you to get breast implants. I think you were not a good candidate. It might be the problem while conducting the above mentioned physical examinations that made you a good candidate. A dear friend of mine has had breast augmentation few years back.
Avatar n tn The problem is that she has had both nipples pierced (removed them 6 years ago) and currently has silicone implants. We know that there is a chance that breast feeding isnt an option, but what are the odds. And, although it may seem unethical, do any mothers who have problems use breast milk from another mother who is breast feeding successfully?
Avatar n tn How bad will radiation be on my implant-would I get new implants after all is done? will the breast getting radiation look lik ethe other one? if I get cancer in the other one can you do a masectomy on the both even thouogh one has been radiated?
7928796 tn?1396351929 Its really different for everyone... I know one woman who breast fed three babies a year a piece with implants and I know another that breast fed her first, got implants and couldn't breast feed her second or third...
Avatar n tn Obviously a saline implant is unlikely to cause a lump as the saline works itself out through the body. This scenario would be more possible with silicone breast implants. There are some brands more associated with this as well. You should receive a full review of the lumps though which may include biopsy. https://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/ProductsandMedicalProcedures/ImplantsandProsthetics/BreastImplants/ucm064106.
Avatar f tn Hi - I had a dx of DCIS Stage 0 Grade 2/3 last year and because of father dying of breast cancer and so much other cancers in the family it was recommended that I have a bi-lateral mastectomy which I did and have no regrets about. However the plastic surgeon that I selected to do the reconstruction, although a great guy, was going to place the final silicone implants through the areola site and do a "purse string closure".
Avatar n tn I am not really into implants. I would prefer a fat transfer, your own fat to place in the breast. Check out some sites I'm sure a lot of reconstructive surgeon know this.
Avatar f tn This is my third pregnancy. I breastfed my first 2 children. I got breast implants after my second. I'm curious if anyone has or knows of someone that has successfully breastfed after getting implants.
Avatar n tn ------------------------------------------------------- Vacuum-assisted biopsy (brand names, Mammotome or MIBB) allows physicians to perform accurate breast biopsies on women with breast implants. Prior to the advent of vacuum-assisted biopsy, women with implants typically had to undergo open surgical biopsy if breast cancer was suspected. Unlike surgical biopsy, vacuum-assisted biopsy is a percutaneous ("through the skin") procedure.
Avatar f tn Actually, if your nipple still has feeling, the chance are high. Breast augmentation (breast implants) isn't a reason alone not to be able to produce breast milk. Most likely, it depends on the kind of surgery you had, but most approaches are compatible with breastfeeding. Incisions made under the fold of the breast or through the armpit shouldn't cause any trouble. A "Smile" incision around the areola increase your risks of breastfeeding complications.
453893 tn?1205859801 I had breast implants on August 8th 2007. Seven months later, last week, I had a mammogram which revealed an 8mm nodular density on the upper right breast. This morning an ultrasound confirmed the presence of this white mass, so a biopsy has been scheduled for tomorrow. There is no lump in the breast, only this shadow. This breast is more sensitive and hurts consistently. The scar under the right breast hasn't healed at the same speed of the left breast scar.
Avatar f tn This includes for saline or silicone breast implants. What type do you have? If they are saline, leaking implants are not a risk. And currently, saline implants are what is typically used. Is one breast or both changing in size? That's another way to know if there is an issue with the implant. Do you feel any lumps? Do you do regular breast exams? There is one type of breast plant that has recently been linked to cancer which involves implants that have a textured surface.
2146297 tn?1337571292 Hello everyone, I have a question about getting breast implants. I'm turning 30 in August and I was really looking forward to getting a boob job. I have been planning this for like 3 years and when I was diagnosed in May last yr, I assumed the boob job was out of the question. From what I understand, only infection and fever cause a relapse.??? This is what I'm wondering about. What about the anithesia? Could that hurt me because of the MS? How likely is it for an infection to occur?

Avatar f tn Does anyone have breast implants?
Avatar f tn One of my old friends had breast implants, now she is on her 4th.
Avatar n tn The risks are very low and they feel more like real breast. I to will be getting implants after the expanders have done thier work. But I am getting gummy implants. They are fairly new to the US but have been used in Canada and abroad for years. They feel fabulous and the contents are like gummy bear material. But again if I had to choose between silicone or saline I would choose silicone every time. My PS says they are safe.
Avatar n tn I've had breast cancer twice now and also had saline implants. It's not unusual to have little twitches or small pains, you do have scar tissue in there. I would like to say and have said it before to Drs. that dismiss the pain with breast cancer shame on you. At age 32 they tried to dismiss my lump first because of my age and second because it was painful .... breast cancer doesn't hurt....WRONG!!!!!!! If I had listened to the Drs, I would not be here today. It was cancer.
