Why Choose Non-invasive Breast Enhancement Procedure
Lots of women dream of fuller, and larger breast, a good number of them choose plastic surgery to achieve that dream, but plastic surgery is not the only way – there’s non-invasive breast enhancement procedure, too!
There is nothing wrong with going for what you want and what makes you happy, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with not being okay with the risks while pursuing it, either! The desire of having larger, fuller breast and minimizing potential risks and pain are not mutually exclusive!
Surgical breast enhancement procedures can give you immediate results, which sounds great for those with little to no patience. However, the risks that come with it are also more significant than non-invasive breast enhancement procedures. Also, if your financials are really tight, surgical breast enhancement are also much more costly and could really have an impact on your personal finances.
Potential complication that comes with surgical breast enhancement procedure
Surgical breast enhancement procedures, namely breast implant, is known for some of its complications, some of them are unavoidable and should definitely be taken into consideration when you’re weighting your breast enhancement options.
Capsular Contracture – After a breast implant procedure, as a part of healing process, your body will create scar tissue around the implant, this is a natural reaction of the body every time any object is surgically implanted into the body and hence unavoidable. The scar tissue will begin to shrink over time, which hardens the implant area and cause discomfort and pain.
Gel Bleed – When the small molecules of your implant separate from it and are taken up to the surrounding vessels, your body will naturally treated it as infection and fight it, which will lead to swellings in the area.
Scarring – The breast implant scarring is usually relatively mild compares to other surgeries, however, in some rare cases the scarring could get more severe and takes up to years to fade.
Other common complications
In addition to the unavoidable complications after breast implants, there are also a long list of other common implications, to name a few:
Creasing and folds – If you had very small breast before the surgery, it is more likely that your breast implant might affect the appearance of the skin on your breast, causing creases, kinks, folds or ripples.
Altered nipple sensation – It is said that about one in seven women reported that their nipples are less sensitive or have no sensation at all after the breast implant, but also, sometimes your nipples could be over-sensitive and become painful. In which case, a consultation with your surgeon is necessary.
Rupture – A rupture is a split in the implant’s casing, this could happen when the implant’s shell gets weaker over time, the breast is injured or if the implant is flawed or damaged during the procedure. If your implant ruptures, you should have it removed and replace a new one. The silicone that leaks out of your implant may cause gel bleed or siliconomas (small lumps caused by silicones being in places they weren’t supposed to be in your body.), which might cause swelling and pain.
Seroma – Fluids can build up around your implant after the surgery, this is a common occurrence known as “Seroma”, while most seromas resolve over time, in some cases a further surgery might be needed to drain out the fluid.
Infection and bleeding – Like all surgeries, the risk of infection and bleeding is almost built-in. Most of your breast implant infections can be treated with antibiotics, but in severe cases, you would have to have the implant removed. You could still choose to have it reinserted after the infections clear up.
Additionally, there are still many other complications associated with breast implants, for a more detailed and complete list, you could visit U.S Food and Drug Administration’s website and take a look at its Breast Implant Complication Booklet.
Before the surgery, there is likely also this fear in the back of your mind that you might not like the way it turns out after the surgery. Pretty much like a tattoo, when it’s done it’s too late to hate it, although unlike tattoo, you could always choose to remove it although that’s going to leave a mark.
Of course, this is not to say that surgical breast enhancement is inferior to non-invasive breast enhancement, although with greater risks and potential complications, surgical breast enhancement can indeed give you larger cup size overnight, whereas non-invasive breast enhancements most likely require time, consistency and patience.
Make sure you think everything through and weight all your options before you make the big decision. Don’t be shy to talk to different treatment providers to get all your answers.[sgmb id=1]
