What Are the Benefits of Breast Implants?
Breast augmentation with implants can provide many benefits, making it a very popular procedure. You can expect to enjoy benefits such as:
- Improved self-esteem
- Better-fitting clothes
- Correction of breast asymmetry
- Improvements in breast shape
- Replacement of lost breast volume
For those who have felt self-conscious about their breast size or shape, a breast augmentation can provide a tremendous improvement in self-confidence and a feeling that their breasts finally look the way they were meant to look.
How Long Do Breast Implants Last?
Current breast implants can last for twenty years or more, although not everyone keeps theirs for that long. Some ways you know your implants may need replacing include:
This common complication causes scar tissue to form around one or both of the breasts. Excellent surgical technique helps avoid this, and Dr. Earle has rates of this problem much lower than the national average.
The chances of implant rupture are low but increase when implants near the end of their lifespan. While not necessarily harmful, ruptures can change the shape of your breasts and require a replacement.
How Safe are Breast Implants?
Dr. Earle and Dr. Vidal have extensive experience performing safe breast augmentation procedures. Some implants in the past have been deemed unsafe, including textured implants, which Dr. Earle refused to use even before they had to be recalled. You can feel confident that your team of surgeons will only use superior quality implants for your procedure.
