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:

Breast Implants
Saline implants are full of a sterile saline solution, basically saltwater. The solution is kept in with the help of a silicone shell. Depending on how much of the solution is in the implants you will have a different firmness, feel and shape of the breast.

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.

Areola(Nipple) Reduction Surgery

Breast Surgery
Your areolas are the pigmented areas around your nipples. Similar to breasts, areolas have different sizes, colors, and shapes. It’s normal to have bigger or differently sized areolas. If you’re uncomfortable with the size of your areolas, the reduction is possible.

Areola reduction surgery is mostly a simple operation that can reduce the diameter of one or both of your areolas. It can be done on its own, or together with a breast reduction, breast augmentation, or/and a breast lift. If done by itself areola reduction surgery can cost on average between $2,000 to $5,000 in the UK or the USA.

Breast Implant Illness (BII) 

Breast Implant Illness
BII is a term women that have breast implants use when they describe systemic symptoms including (but not limited to) fatigue, headaches, chills, chest pain, hair loss, photosensitivity, chronic pain, rash, anxiety, brain fog, sleep disturbance, body odor, depression, neurologic issues, and hormonal issues that they feel are directly connected to their saline or silicone, textured or smooth breast implants. Breast Implant Illness gained popularity on social media where women shared their personal stories with issues they think are related to their breast implants. Social media is not to be the cause of BII, but rather a reason for increases in patient reporting. BII is not an official medical diagnosis and there is no medically proven connection between the breast implants and the symptoms mentioned. More research is still needed to prove or disprove Breast Implant Illness.
