Year after year, breast augmentation and other breast enhancement procedures continue to rank as the most popular plastic surgery options for women.
Breast augmentation can restore fullness to a woman’s naturally small bust line through the insertion of saline or silicone breast implants.
What Do I Need to Know Before Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Breast augmentation surgery is a highly individualized procedure, which means the patient has control when it comes to deciding the steps of her surgery.
With this in mind, there are a few important factors to note when it comes to breast augmentation surgery:

Breast Implants Do Not Last Forever
While your results after breast augmentation are designed to last for a long time, breast implants are not foolproof devices.
Before choosing breast augmentation surgery, it is important to understand that you may have to replace your breast implants after 10 or 15 years.
Breast Implants May Cause Complications
With the proper upkeep and routine MRIs (for silicone implants), breast implants should give you little to no hassle. However, you should be aware of the complications that can potentially arise from breast implants.
Conditions associated with breast implants include:
- Capsular contracture—When scar tissue forms and contracts around the breast implant, causing discomfort
- Implant rupture—When the silicone implant shell weakens and tears, causing your breasts to appear deflated or lumpy
- Bottoming out—When one or both breast implants slip below the inframammary crease
Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift Can Be Combined
It is common for women to combine a breast lift with their breast augmentation to optimize their results.
For women with sagging breasts after pregnancy or weight loss, a breast lift can help restore a youthful, natural appearance.
