What Are Breast Implants?
Breast implants are saline or silicone devices which fit under your chest muscles, or breast tissue, to enhance your breast’s size and shape. Implants are available in various sizes, dimensions, and shapes, and are customized to meet each patient’s unique needs. These implants are used for both breast augmentation and reconstruction surgery.
Which Are The Most Suitable Breast Implants?
Every type of breast implant comes with its benefits. To determine which implant is best for you and your situation, Dr. Lynch will spend ample time discussing your desired outcome and personal needs. A suitable and personalized treatment plan is then developed based on one’s body type and the specific surgery a patient is undergoing. These include reshaping, reconstruction, rebalancing symmetry, and augmentation.
Are Breast Implants Safe?
Innovations in breast implants make sure the equipment used is effective and safe. The available implant options at Cosmetic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery include products by ALEERGAN® and MENTOR®, all of which are FDA-approved.
Saline implants have an outer shell made of lasting silicone. They are filled with saltwater or sterile saline solution after the implants are surgically placed.
Silicone implants come pre-filled with a stabilized cohesive silicone gel. These implants are often lighter and feel more natural compared to saline implants.
Aside from offering patients natural-looking breasts which also feel real, Dr. Lynch addresses concerns regarding incidents and risks of both breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) and breast implant illness.
What Is BIA-ALCL?
BIA-ALCL is an unusual type of cancer which affects one’s immune system. This form of cancer is not breast cancer, but rather an inflammatory response that develops in the scar tissue surrounding the implant. With an early diagnosis, this condition can be treated. If left untreated, this cancer may spread to other body areas, however.
What Is Breast Implant Illness?
Breast Implant Illness comprises an extensive range of symptoms that may develop following a breast reconstruction surgery or augmentation with silicone implants. The symptoms might include joint pain, sleep disturbance, breathing issues, chronic fatigue, and gastrointestinal issues.
Often, the symptoms occur because of inflammatory or autoimmune responses to materials inside the breast implant. Dr. Lynch offers a comprehensive review of these symptoms to help design the most suitable treatment, which often includes removing the breast implants.
