What are Breast Implants?
Breast implants are specialized medical prostheses that are made out of saline, silicone, gel, or other materials to change the shape or size of the breasts. Breast implants are surgically inserted under the breast tissue to emulate the look and feel of real breasts. Women get breast implants for different reasons. Some women seek out implants simply to have larger breasts and a more proportionate figure, while other women use implants to firm and lift sagging breasts, after having children and breast feeding. Breast implants are also used to reconstruct breasts after a mastectomy or trauma, correct breast tissue due to defects or add symmetry to uneven breasts.
If you are a patient and you are over the age of 18, you should legally qualify for this cosmetic procedure. Otherwise, if you are under the age of 18, you will need parental authorization or permission to have breast enlargement surgery, unless it is medically authorized for health-related reasons.
Adult patients in good health should medically qualify for breast enhancement surgery. You must also have a mammogram to confirm the health of your breast tissue in advance of the surgery, and you must be cancer free to have the surgery. If you elect to have breast implants, you will be screened and your surgeon will discuss your medical history with you and your general physician, if necessary.
