Living with Breast Implants

 Living with Breast Implants

Living with Breast Implants

When your recovery is over and you have the amazing breasts you’ve always wanted, it can be easy to completely forget about the process you went through to get this body. It can be tempting to just go on with your life and never think of it again. Unfortunately, there are some things about living with breast implants that every woman should know. Here are some examples.

Sleeping in a Bra

Different surgeons have different recommendations for sleeping in a bra or not. It also depends on several factors, including the size of the breasts, the size of the implants, and the patient’s sleeping habits. Your surgeon may recommend that you sleep in a bra, but it is best to ask this question ahead of time so that you are prepared. 

Notifying Medical Personnel

After surgery, patients are provided with an implant identification card that lists the manufacturer, size and style of implant. This card should be maintained with your personal health records. When you see your gynecologist for breast exams or you’re scheduled for a mammogram,  providing information about your implants will be very helpful for accurate screening for breast issues. You will also want to make sure that you notify medical personnel of your implants if you are in any kind of accident that may have caused a rupture. This includes getting examined after car accidents, which can sometimes be forceful enough to rupture an implant. Make sure that you get an examination any time your breasts undergo trauma. It takes an incredible amount of force to rupture an implant, but it does happen. If there is a risk that it could have happened during your accident, you need to be up front with the medical staff who are treating you.

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.
