6. What implant size should I get?
It is important to note that although you may have a desires cup size in mind, the choice of your breast implant size should be made on your anatomy. Choosing a breast implant too big or too small can affect the long-term results of your surgery and the aesthetic appearance. Therefore, choosing a breast implant that is as close to your desired cup size, but within your anatomical parameters is key to long term results and breast appearance.
7. How long will my breast implants last?
Although we would love our new ladies to last a lifetime, unfortunately, breast implants are not lifetime devices. With most medical devices as time goes by, often newer, more advanced breast implants and surgical techniques come available. But that’s not all, just as nature intended, following the gradual effects of aging, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations, and start to droop which may require further surgeries to refresh your breasts, therefore discussing with your surgeon potential additional surgeries can help you make the choices that are right for you.
8. What are the potential complications of breast surgery?
All medical procedures have complications, just as all drugs can have side effects. Breast augmentation is no different. Therefore, it is a good time to ask your surgeon about complications related to both general anaesthesia and breast surgery to enable you to be comfortable with your surgery and make smart, informed decisions.
9. What is the warranty on the implants?
