Things You Should Know Before Getting Breast Implants

Before Getting Breast Implants

Whenever you are considering an elective medical procedure, it is important to get all of the information before making a decision. There is a lot of controversy about breast implants, and there are a few things you should know before getting breast implants.

They don’t last forever.

Breast implants are not “lifetime” devices.  If you are in your 30s or 40s you may require additional breast surgery in the future. That surgery can be a breast implant removal and breast lift, or it can be replacing the implants with new ones.

There are a lot of options.

Breast implants  differ in a variety of ways.  Many women think that they have to make the decision between saline and silicone implants, but in reality these are just two descriptors. There are also differences in shape, size, and texture. It is important to work with your surgeon to choose the right type of implant for the results you desire.

They can leak or rupture.

Sometimes breast implants can leak or rupture, requiring replacement or revision surgery. Saline implants may rupture and leak , with the results being noticeable right away.  The saline will be absorbed harmlessly by the body. You’ll know this has happened because the breast will seem to deflate. If you have silicone implants the leak or rupture may not be immediately apparent. It is important to keep all of your follow-up appointments so that your breast health can be assessed regularly.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
