In Turkey, women who improve breast shape and size can choose to have breast augmentation. Breasts that vary in size and form and regain breast volume and firmness lost due to excessive weight loss, pregnancy, aging, or other causes may also be fixed by the operation. It requires surgery to insert breast implants authorized by the FDA under or over the chest muscle. Every year, hundreds of thousands of women undergo this common cosmetic surgical procedure with no recorded side effects.

If you’re considering breast augmentation, one of the most important choices you’ll have to make is which breast implant to use. You’ve got to pick the best choice for your body for better performance. As there is a wide range of breast implants in different sizes and shapes, this is not easy. You need to know everything about breast implants to make an informed decision. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions about breast implants.

  • Which implant is better?

According to the ASPS, 88 percent of all breast augmentations in 2018 were used with silicone implants, and 12 percent with saline implants. Although there are particular advantages and positive outcomes with both silicone and saline implants, silicone implants have a fewer risk of rippling and wrinkling. They have a more realistic look as well. The primary benefit of saline implants is that if they split, the body will absorb the saline. Their main downside is that inside the implant pocket, they are more likely to ripple or fold, and the edges may be noticeable under the surface of the skin, particularly in women with thin skin and little body fat. By assessing factors such as your aesthetic goals, body shape, age, lifestyle, and budget, the plastic surgeon will decide the best implant for you.

  • Are breast implants safe?

Breast implants are secure, but no medical device is risk-free, says the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Although rare cases of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), a highly treatable form of lymphoma, have been identified, ASPS reports that “decades of studies have yet to create a causal association between the device and systemic disease.”

  • Is age a constraint for breast implant surgery? 

While there is no theoretical rationale for the age criterion, FDA regulations state that an ideal candidate for silicone breast implants must be at least 22 years old and saline breast augmentation implants must be at least 18. Women can consider breast implant surgery if they are good candidates for the procedure and are aware of the benefits, risks, and outcomes of the procedure.

  • Can I breast-feed with breast implants?

Women with implants breastfeed their children successfully. The breast glands/ ducts would not be directly affected by a properly administered augmentation operation. Consult a well-trained plastic surgeon before the operation to understand this better.

  • Do breast implants cause pain?

Breast pain, breast thickening, or changes in the contour or shape of the breast may be caused by a ruptured silicone breast implant. Ruptured implants can, however, be replaced surgically and a new implant can be inserted simultaneously.

  • Is it necessary to combine with breast lift?

Women must have a good knowledge of both the protocol and what they can accomplish. While implants increase the size of the breast, they do not correct the sagging. A breast lift, on the other hand, focuses on positioning rather than increasing breast size. If at the juncture of your breasts and chest wall, your nipples hang lower than the crease, then you can need a breast lift. Both these procedures can be combined effectively to improve outcomes.

  • When should breast implants be replaced?

Breast implants are widely mistaken to need to be removed and replaced regularly. If you have developed problems due to disappointment with initial findings, the shift in breast size, aging, capsular contracture (hardening of the breast tissue around the implant), rupture, or deflation, there is no need for follow-up or substitution of your implants.
