Adjustable Breast Implants Part of Plastic Surgery’s Future?
There has been some hype (and controversy) recently about the idea of using adjustable implants that allow individuals to change the size of their breasts after plastic surgery. The idea is to allow women to change their minds with regards to size 3 to 6 months after their initial breast enhancement procedure. The technology is similar to what is used on a temporary basis on women who have mastectomies.
The idea behind this is that so many individuals get conservative- sized implants only to determine after that they would have liked larger ones. Swapping out the implants for a bigger size then means another invasive surgical procedure. In order to increase the size of the implants, there is a tiny port inserted under the skin. This allows a surgeon to use a needle to insert more saline or remove some.
The procedure is controversial due the potential risks of leaving ports in for 6 months then removing them. However, there are some in the industry that also argue that it leaves patients with a greater level of satisfaction.
