Happy with Implants
Hi

Is there anyone out there that is happy with your breast enlargement op. I'm also considering it but are reading a lot of stories that went wrong.

I would like to hear from you if you had it for more than a yaer without any complications.

Is it the plastic surgeon that makes mistakes or does everyones body react different to the implant?

Dear Me,

I hope some of the web surfers out there can answer you.

From a plastic surgeon's perspective, however, you have to realise that every person is unique, and that complications are unique to every person.

This is the one procedure with the highest patient satisfaction of all, and although complications do occur, they are extremely rare. Furthermore, plastic surgeons have been trained and are experienced not only in doing the initial surgery, but also in sorting out and assisting patients with complications after surgery.

It is incredibly important to provide your plastic surgeon with absolutely all information about your state of health and the medications and/or supplements that you use - including multivitamins and homeopathic medications, and to strictly follow his advice before and after surgery.

Furthermore, the first person to run to if you are unsure or worried after surgery, is the person who performed the surgery - not another doctor!
