Before any cosmetic surgery, it's not only important to ask questions about what to expect during surgery but also what to expect after surgery. Peter Ledoux, a board certified plastic surgeon at the PRMA Center for Advanced Breast Reconstruction in San Antonio explains what happens to breast implants as you age, gain or lose weight or get pregnant. The natural breast tissue changes and becomes more lax over time in all women, including those who have had breast augmentation.
Weight gain is a common complaint after undergoing breast implant surgery. Obviously, the weight of the breast implants alone will make your scale creep up beyond its current numbers—but some post-operative weight gain goes beyond the simple math of starting weight plus breast implants. In fact, most plastic surgeons say that a five-pound weight gain is common immediately after a breast implant surgery.
The size of your implant is assessed according to your body shape, so for leaner, smaller women, a smaller implant can achieve a size D cup for example whereas a broader woman may need a much larger size implant to achieve the same cup size. For that reason it is recommended to be at a steady weight before you have the operation, or if you would like to be at a different weight, a weight that is genuinely sustainable for you. This is because lots of fluctuations in weight can affect how the implants will look.

Today's boob job is about more than buying breast implants. The term is also used to refer to breast lifts, reductions, or a combination lift and augmentation with implants. It depends on the breast results you have in mind.
List Your Facility. List Your Practice. I just had some friends over for a girls night and they were all giving me their "opinons" on me getting my new boobs.
Silicone implants use shells filled with a plastic gel while saline implants use silicone shells filled with a sterile saline solution. For breast reconstruction, the rebuilding of a breast, both implants are approved for women of all ages. For breast augmentation, meant to increase the size or change the shape of a breast, saline implants are approved for women aged 18 or older and silicone implants are approved for women aged 22 or older.
A blogger has had her breast implants removed after she claims they caused her to suffer acne, body odour, weight gain and fatigue. More-so than the last few years. I went from being practically bedridden to having more energy to live.
Women who seek breast augmentations usually do it to improve the way they look and feel. Often, those who have gained or lost a significant amount of weight or who have breastfed notice changes in the shape and size of their breasts, and look to breast implants to make corrections. After any surgery, weight gain is possible due to the time off that is required from intense exercise.
