Breast Implants For Everyone?


Visitors: 244

Gone are the days when silicone breast implants were reserved for Pamela Anderson-look-a-likes. Today tens of 1000's of women in the UK are enhancing and reshaping their breasts.

Where previously it was mainly young, single girls having the operation, today plastic surgeons treat many middle-class women in their late 30s and early 40s. These women aren’t (usually) looking for Barbie doll figures ; they just want the breasts they had when they were 20.

The depressing fact of the matter is that however much you exercise and diet, your breasts will droop with age. Pregnancy and breast-feeding, along with gravity, take their toll and – since breast have no muscles – there’s not much you can do about it. Unless you go under the knife that is.

The good news is that silicone implants have got safer. A 2006 study by American surgeons found that, after 12 years, only 8% of women had any problems with their implants. And within that 8%, the main issues where discomfort rather than medical issues.

If you are thinking about having surgery here are a few MioBlog tips:

1. Research surgeons thoroughly.
2. Make sure you feel totally comfortable with the surgeon and that he/she knows exactly what you want.
3. The surgeon should take detailed measurements of your breasts before the operation. A surgeon who doesn’t do this should not be trusted.
4. About 5% of women who have silicone implants get capsular contraction. This is when the breast hardens as a reaction to the foreign body inserted.
5. Some women choose saline implants as a more ‘natural’ implant. However, saline breasts will feel cold in winter, as the saline does not conduct heat.
6. However good a pair of silicone breasts look, they won’t feel the same as ‘real’ *** . This doesn’t have to be a negative, but it’s an important consideration.
