Breast Implant Surgery Myths!

Breast Implant Surgery Myths!

Breast Implant Surgery Myths! I have to replace my implants periodically. For most women, their implants will last anywhere from 8 to approximately 30 years. The standard warranty for the majority of implant manufacturers will cover them for at least ten years. You can check with different manufacturers to see if different options are available. Consult your surgeon, as he will have experience with the different companies and may prefer one over another. A mammogram will break my implant. A mammogram screening can be more challenging for a woman with breast implants. The x-rays used for breast imaging cannot go through implants well enough to show the breast tissue that is over or under it. Basically the part of the breast tissue covered by the implant will not be able to be detected by the normal screening. A process is in place to take additional pictures during the screening process. This allows the most breast tissue to be seen by mammography. This procedure is referred to as “Implant Displacement Views”.

Confidence Boosting Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand

Confidence Boosting Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand

Probably, though, most popular plastic surgery procedures are cosmetic surgeries, in which we either try to improve and enhance nature or turn back time and slow down the aging process and by doing so, boost our self-confidence. Both of these reasons are perfectly valid motivations. The wealthy and the famous seem to be constantly improving their natural features or rejuvenating them. But today these procedures are not confined to the wealthy and famous especially if we travel to Thailand to undertake cosmetic surgery. The country itself imbues the traveler with healthy vibes! Confidence and self-esteem are absolutely vital components  of a balanced and healthy life. Although in comparison with the tragic problems experienced by some people, a lack of confidence in one’s looks may seem minor, that does not negate the way in which low self esteem corrodes and cripples our lives. Based on first hand experience of both men and women who have experienced not only enhanced self-confidence as a result of cosmetic surgery but also an enormous boost to their health we will present several cosmetic surgery procedures that can boost your self-confidence. Is Cosmetic Surgery Worth it? Cosmetic surgery  should not be undertaken on a whim, that’s for sure. As much as it can boost your self-confidence, it can also make you feel miserable if you chose a cosmetic procedure which does not fit your body type or you don’t find a surgeon willing to tailor a procedure to your specific and very individual...
