Frequently Asked Questions
Why would I undergo breast augmentation surgery?
There are many reasons for which a person would like to augment the size of their breasts. It may be to enhance a woman’s shape with naturally small breasts, or to restore volume that may have been lost following weight loss or breastfeeding.
What type of implants are used to augment a breast’s size?
Your surgeon will select and explain to you which is the preferred type of implant that best meets your expectations. Nonetheless, breast augmentation is made possible with either fat grafting (or lipofilling [ADD LINK to lipofilling procedure]) or with FDA-approved silicone or saline-filled implants.
How often must implants be changed?
You are required to go for check-ups around 6 years after your first implants procedure and then as often as requested by your physician. It is preferable to change your implants every 10 to 15 years.
