Breast Implant Awareness Month

March is Breast Implant Awareness Month, an effort dedicated to ensuring women who have breast implants – and those who are considering breast augmentation – have all of the information they need to make informed decisions about their health. While breast augmentation is incredibly popular and considered safe for most patients, complications can arise. Understanding these potential complications along with treatment options, such as breast implant removal and revision, can be useful when weighing the pros and cons of breast enhancement.

While breast implant complications are uncommon, they are not impossible. You can help to reduce your risks of developing a problem by closely following pre and postoperative directions and bringing any concerns to the immediate attention of our office.

Implant Removal & Revision

Breast implant removal may become necessary due to complications with scar tissue, changes in implant appearance, implant rupture, or implant shifting. These issues may result in discomfort along with changes to the appearance of the breasts. They can often be addressed through revision surgery.

During revision surgery, older implants are removed and replaced with new ones. The new implants can be of a different size or shape, allowing for complete customization and helping to produce the most desirable results.

Some women choose to undergo implant removal alone. When this is done, the breasts simply return to the size they were before augmentation. If sagging is present after the removal of implants, breast lift surgery can be used to restore a perky and lifted appearance to the chest.

Honest and Caring

At the Centre for Aesthetic & Reconstructive Surgery, we agree with the need for honesty when discussing breast implants, including potential risks and complications. As a female plastic surgeon, Dr. Doyle is committed to helping women achieve natural-looking results that enhance both emotional and physical happiness. She is here to listen to your desires, provide straightforward information about your options, and guide you towards the most effective ways to reach your goals.

The Centre for Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery believes that whole health is a combination of balanced diet, regular exercise, and positive outlook.  We strongly encourage all of our patients to pursue the goals of healthy living that include skin care, a thoughtful attitude towards food, and exercise as a daily habit.

As part of helping our clients and patients work toward their overall health goals, we are developing Whole Health Partnerships with a variety of Rhode Island health and fitness providers. We encourage our patients to use these partnerships to pursue a health-positive lifestyle.

Pilates can be especially useful for patients that have undergone mastectomy and breast reconstruction, as well as maintaining results after weight loss and body contouring surgery.  Remember, you should consult with your primary physician before you begin any exercise regimen.
