    Breast Implants: Should you get them?




    Today, women are choosing breast augmentation to enhance their profile and improve the appearance of breasts that show signs of aging or changes after child bearing.

    Breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures in cosmetic plastic surgery. There were 364,610 breast augmentation procedures in 2005, a 9 percent increase from 2004, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

    Are they safe?


    In November 2006, the FDA approved silicone gel breast implants for the first time, but only for women who are 22 or older. And because of serious concerns about safety, the FDA is requiring implant makers to study 80,000 women with breast implants for 10 years.

    Previous studies have only evaluated women with breast implants for three years, The newly required studies will be used to find out whether or not silicone gel implants are safe.

    The FDA has approved silicone gel breast implants and saline breast implants made by two manufacturers, Inamed (also called McGhan or Allegan) and Mentor. The FDA decided that breast implants are “reasonably safe” for most women for the three years that were studied, but unfortunately saline implants were not studied for long-term safety.

    Silicone or saline breast implants by companies other than Inamed and Mentor are not considered to be “reasonably safe” by the FDA.

    “Reasonably safe” does not mean safe for everyone. The FDA found that most implant patients have at least one serious complication within three years after getting their silicone or saline implants.

    What complications should I expect?



    Breast pain, breast hardness, and numbness in the ****** are common complications that may last for years, and may never go away.

    The most serious complications include toxic shock syndrome, implants breaking through the skin, or skin dying. A few studies have shown that patients have died or had gangrene as a result of breast augmentation surgery. These are rare but they do happen.

    Many breast augmentation patients need additional surgery within 5 years of getting breast implants. Within 10-12 years, most women will need at least one additional surgery.

    4 out of 10 reconstruction patients need additional surgery within three years of getting implants.

    Breast augmentation may interfere with your ability to breastfeed.

    There are serious concerns about whether a leaking implant could harm a nursing infant, but no studies have been conducted.

    How long breast implants last


    It is unpredictable how long an implant will last. Some implants break within a few days, weeks, or months, while others last for many years.

    Like most new products, most implants seem fine for the first few years. Think of implants as being as reliable as a car – problems can happen anytime, but the older they get, the more problems you are likely to have.

    The FDA found that by the time a woman has implants for 10 years, at least one of them has broken. However, it is not always obvious.

    How much breast implants cost after the initial surgery

    Most women pay $4,000-6,000 for their first augmentation surgery with saline implants, and approximately $1,000 more with silicone gel implants. If a doctor is charging less than that, be very cautious. Make sure he or she is a board-certified plastic surgeon and is very experienced with implants.

    Do breast implants cause cancer?


    Breast implants do not cause breast cancer, but they make it more difficult to detect breast cancer because they can hide tumors.

    Mammograms can’t see through breast implants, and the most recent research indicates they will miss the tumors of half of the augmented women who have breast cancer.

    Mammograms must be performed by a skilled technician who is aware that you have implants. This costs more, takes longer, and will expose you to more radiation each time you have a mammogram. And according to a study by FDA scientists, mammograms can cause implants to rupture.

    Research by the National Cancer Institute has found that women with breast augmentation are more likely to die of brain cancer or lung cancer compared to other plastic surgery patients.

    What to ask your doctor

    If you decide to get breast implants put in or taken out, make sure you only use a board-certified plastic surgeon.

    If your doctor shows photographs of patients, ask if they were his or her own patients. Ask to see photographs of how they looked a few years later.

    If your doctor tells you that breast implants are proven safe, ask for a copy of any report that studied women with implants for at least 10 years.

    Ask your doctor for written information about the risks of breast implants and read that information at least one week before surgery, so you have time to ask questions or gather more information.

    Any woman who considers silicone gel implants should ask for the informed consent form at least one week before surgery.

    If your doctor says all of his or her patients are happy with their results, ask to speak to patients who have had implants for at least 7-10 years.

    Actually, it just so happens that they can.
    Triceps, biceps, they can nowadays even break your legs, fix you again and a few months later, you can be walking 3 inches taller than before.. you name it, if the money is there, it's possible... It really is fascinating stuff... there's a lot that can be done. Even removal of the lower ribs so to enhance a more leaner look...!

    Male Breast Implants (Pectorals). An Enhancement of Masculinity.

    While most guys would like to get rid of their extra 'extensions' on their chest, others simply prefer to expand them horizontally. Confused?

    Breast implants for men who.....





    Pectoral Implants have now become a fashion and are more and more frequently requested by men to enhance their chest frame. It is a popular procedure for men who want to enhance the shape and size of their chest muscle without the need for consistent body building, exercise and certain medication. Having a male chest enlargement can give men a more masculine look. It is also popular for men who are unable to develop chest muscles due to certain muscular disorders.
    So may it be
