After breast augmentation surgery, how long does the recovery process take?

The recovery process depends on your profile and other variables. Adequately specifying a specific time frame of recovery is During the first 48 hours, you might have an elevated body temperature and your breasts may remain swollen and sensitive to physical contact for a month or longer. Both should fade away over time. You are likely to feel tired and sore for several days following the operation. You could experience a feeling of tightness in the breast area as the skin adjusts to the new breast size. You should avoid any strenuous activities for at least a couple of weeks but should be able to return to work within a few days. Breast massage may also be recommended as appropriate.

AIs the microtransponder (Qid™) MRI safe? Does it interfere with the MRI images?

Yes, the microtransponder (Qid™) is MRI safe. The device is MRI conditional meaning that it has demonstrated to pose no known hazards in a specified MRI environment with specified conditions of use.

This microtransponder may create an imaging void during a breast implant MRI (known as an artifact effect) that can block visualization of a small area of minor breast tissue near the Qid™. In selected cases, alternative imaging techniques such as ultrasounds, tomosynthesis, digital compression mammogrammy, subtraction contrast mammography and scintimammography can be used to better visualize the region affected by the implant Qid™.

ACan breast implants interfere with mammographies?

Breast implants may complicate the interpretation of mammographic images by obscuring underlying breast tissue and/ or by compressing overlying tissue. Prior to any examination you should inform your examiners about the presence, type, and placement of their implants and to request a diagnostic mammography, rather than a screening mammography. Accredited mammography centers, technicians with experience in examining patients with breast implants and the use of displacement techniques are needed to adequately visualize breast tissue in the implanted breast. The current recommendations for preoperative/screening mammograms are no different for women with breast implants than for those women without implants. Pre and post-surgical mammography may be performed to determine a baseline for routine future studies in augmentation patients.


ACan I breastfeed with breast implants?

Yes you can breastfeed with breast implants. However, breast implant surgery may interfere with the ability to optimally breast feed, either by reducing or eliminating milk production. Most women with breast implants who attempt nursing have successfully breast-fed their babies. It is not known if there are increased risks for a woman with breast implants or if the children of women with breast implants are more likely to have health problems. At this time, it is not known if it is possible for a small amount of silicone to pass from the breast implant silicone shell into breast milk during breastfeeding, or what the potential consequences might be. A periareolar surgical approach may further increase the chance of breast-feeding difficulties. Furthermore, the American Academy of Pediatrics has stated that there is no reason why a woman with implants should refrain from nursing.


AHow long do Motiva Implants® last?

Breast Implants are not lifetime devices. However, the life expectancy of a silicone breast implant cannot be precisely estimated, as there are many factors beyond the manufacturer´s control that can affect the longevity of a device. The time period varies from patient to patient. Some patients could need replacement surgery few years after the primary procedure while others can have their implants intact for 10 years or longer. Therefore, the life expectancy of the implant cannot be guaranteed. If you experience pain or a change in appearance please see your doctor. For safety, as well as the most beautiful and healthy outcome, it is important that you return to your plastic surgeon’s office for the follow-up evaluations prescribed by your doctor. Yearly visits are recommended to verify the device integrity. During the 10- year follow-up visit the surgeon should assess whether or not it is advisable to remove and replace the implants.
