Breast Implant Scars, What to Expect.

Realistic expectations are key:

Having realistic expectations has a lot of overlap with getting implants for the right reason. Expecting to fill out your clothes and improve your side-profile is one thing. Expecting to instantly look like a swimsuit model is another matter entirely. Breast implant scars usually heal well over time.

The women who are most likely to be happy with their results usually resemble the following. They’ve had some age related changes, and state that they “just want to look normal” again. In other words, they want their breasts to remain in proportion with the rest of their body. Others simply want their clothes to fit better.

Size Considerations

Reduce Breast Implant Scars

Then there’s the consideration of size. Women who want to achieve a modest increase in size are usually the most satisfied. This translates into 2 cup sizes at most. Women looking for a larger increase have much higher rates of dissatisfaction.

It’s also important to realize that some scarring may occur. While modern implant surgery is minimally invasive, it’s still surgery, and it still breaks the skin. Whenever this happens scarring is always a possibility. It’s true that your surgeon will try to hide his or her access incisions as thoroughly as possible. Even so, it’s reasonable to expect a 3 to 4-inch breast implant Scar beneath each breast. This should be taken into account, especially if you’ve got a medical history of forming thick scars which tend to stand out.

What’s more, even modern silicone or saline implants don’t look and feel exactly like natural tissue. While this may change in the future, this limitation of materials is unavoidable at the present time.
