There are many different options for you to consider when choosing to have breast augmentation, starting with the many types of breast implants available. The information available can be overwhelming, but once you have chosen a plastic surgeon you can discuss with them the pros and cons of each implant and find out what which would be best for you and your anatomy. Most surgeons have their own preference of make and style of implant they use. Rather than try to choose which implant would be best for you ask a plastic surgeon for his recommendation and the reasons why. Remember what shape and style looks and feels great on one patient may not look and feel as good on you. Before you decide to go forward with breast implant surgery, you should also consider the following: * Many of the changes to the shape of the breast after implantation are irreversible. * Removal of the implants may leave unacceptable dimpling, puckering, wrinkling, or other cosmetic changes to the breast. * Breast implants may affect your ability to produce milk for breast feeding. * Breast implants make routine screening mammography more difficult. * Implants cause alteration of ****** and breast sensation. * Pain of varying intensity and duration may occur and persist following breast implant surgery. * Blood and other fluids can pool around the implant causing hematoma and infections. You may end up back in the operating room so that your doctor can find the cause of the bleeding. * Breast implant surgery carries the same general risks as other surgical procedures. * Insurance will most likely not pay for the procedure, if it is not medically necessary.

Hi! WHY do you want to interfere with nature? Let me tell you the side effect of breast implants and then you decide if you want to go ahead. From special mammography considerations, to breast-feeding issues, to implant leakage, you need to be aware of breast implant side effects. If you know what's happening, you'll know what to do. Breast Feeding Many breast implant patients successfully breast feed; however, breast implants may interfere with breast feeding. Mammography There is a risk that breast implants may impede breast cancer detection. During mammography, X-ray, or ultrasound the implants could hide suspicious tumors or lesions. Treatment providers must take special care of breast-implant patients during breast exams. Loss of Sensation After breast surgery, some implant patients experience loss of sensation in the ****** and breast area. Loss of sensation results from damage to nerve endings in the breast and ******. The loss of sensation is often temporary, but it can be per

I had a breast augmentation but it was AFTER I had kids!!!!  I didnt interfere with mother nature but just gave it a boost.  I had NO mass what so ever just skin after having my 2nd set of twins... I had 4 kids in 2 years and it did some damage to my breast area.  I do have some loss of sensation but its not as bad as what a lot of people say it is. 

If you do it do a lot of research on the surgeon and ask for references... call them and ask what ever is on your mind.  Good Luck

My best advice for you is WAIT until you have all the kids you want then do it... If you do it now there is a high chance you will be back in there getting them done again or even fixed!!
