Three Things You Need to Know About Breast Implants

Breast implants, or breast augmentation, is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures in the U.S. In fact, in 2014, it was the most requested cosmetic surgery procedure of all. Plastic surgery in southeast Michigan and across the globe is becoming more and more common. Women of all ages are realizing that they have the control to achieve the self-confidence they desire. But if you are one of the many women who have considered breast implants in metro Detroit, here are three things you may not — but should — know.

You can pick what kind

There are two types of breast implants — saline and silicone gel. Each have unique benefits and drawbacks. For example, patients must be over 18 years old to get saline breast implants and over 22 years old to get silicone implants. The majority of women get silicone implants — nearly 80 percent. It is easier to detect saline implants, as they can show ripples, unlike silicone implants.

You need to be healthy...and honest

Just like any other type of surgery, breast augmentation needs to be taken very seriously. You will need to be totally honest with your surgeon about your health — particularly with whether or not you smoke and whether breast cancer runs in your family. You will also need to notify your surgeon of past surgeries, any and all medications you take, as well as any non-prescription drug use.

Not all surgeons are board-certified

It is important to know that not all plastic surgeons are board-certified. And just because a surgeon claims to perform breast augmentation doesn’t mean he or she has a plethora of experience in this type of procedure. It is key to do your due diligence and choose a surgeon who is, indeed, board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who specializes in breast augmentation.
