Is it necessary to replace the implants and how long do they serve?

Modern quality implants will be able to serve the whole life without the need for replacement. The need for repeated mammoplasty can occur due to the loss of breast shape because of weight change (over 10 kg) or reduced springiness and elasticity of the skin on the background of age-related changes. The reason for the replacement of implants for the larger ones in such cases is only the desire of the patient.

May the silicone breasts be used for breastfeeding?

Can the implants cause cancer?

Annual postoperative examinations of specialists will help to identify the development of oncology in the early stages, what increases the likelihood of a favorable outcome of treatment.

How long does the rehabilitation after the plasty last?

It is possible to return to the normal rhythm of life after the increasing of the bust only in a month or in a month and a half and before that woman will need help and support from the family.

On whom breast surgery can’t be done?

In some cases, breast augmentation becomes impossible. Contraindications for the operation include the presence of tumors, intolerance of anesthesia and chronic infectious diseases.
