Breast Surgery Benefits:

- Used in preventing or the treatment of breast cancer
Reconstructive breast surgery may be performed as a part of the treatment for breast cancer. Cosmetic breast surgery is done for esthetic reasons. Breast augmentation is usually a cosmetic surgery.
The way breast augmentation is done is with the use of implants that the doctor places under the chest muscles or breast tissue. Implants last from 7 to 12 years on average and are made of saline, silicone, or alternative composite implants.
There are three main types of breast implants:
If a saline implant breaks or leaks, your body will absorb and expel it naturally.
Silicone gel-filled implants are made of a silicone outer layer filled with a silicone gel. If there will be leakage, the gel will either be held in by the outer layer or leak into the breast implant pocket. Patients who choose this type of implant should have more regular checks with their doctor compared with those who choose saline implants. An MRI or ultrasound scan will show the condition of the implants.
An alternative material for implants filling can be polypropylene string, soy oil, or some other material.
