After the breast implant surgery, there may be pain and discomfort in the breast or chest region. These signs will be present for about a few days after the surgery.

However, during the surgery, anesthesia will be given to numb the area or to sedate you so that no pain can be felt.


Are breast implants toxic?

Breast implants are designed for temporarily purpose to reshape or resize the breast. So, after a few years of breast implant surgery, the patient needed to remove the implants.

If the implants are not removed or replaced on time, then they can cause severe health issues called breast implant illness [BII]. This is the condition in which the contents in the implants may leak into the body and can cause toxic effects.


Are breast implants heavy? 

This is depending on the size of the implant you choose. Silicone breast implants are lighter than the saline implants and similar to natural breast tissue. This allows the implanted breast to feel more natural in women with small breast.

Breast implants may cause pain and discomfort, but this can be seen in the women who have naturally large breasts. After the surgery, there may be severe pain with discomfort for up to a few weeks.

Are breast implants permanent?

No. Because breast implants are made for a temporary purpose and should be removed from the body after a few years. Otherwise, implants may rupture and can leak the contents into the chest region which may lead to loss of sensation in the nipples and may change the shape of the chest wall area. 


Can breast implants cause cancer?

BIA-ALCL is usually found in the area around the scar tissues and fluid of the implants. Removal of implants after early detection can cure BIA-ALCL.


Can breast implants look natural?

Depending on the type of breast implants chosen to place in the chest area will change the naturality of the breast.

So, before choosing the right type of breast implant, discuss with your surgeon or doctor.

  1. Severe chest pain.
  2. Swelling in the breast region.
  3. Risk of developing a rare type of immune system cancer, etc.
