Over 300,000 women in the United States alone choose to have breast implants each year, and to be honest, there's good reason for their popularity...
The results can be dramatic and the improvement is nearly instantaneous.
However, before you take the plunge, consider this: the FDA has emphatically stated that breast implants are NOT permanent.
It may seem shocking, but it's true!
Virtually every woman who undergoes breast implant surgery will end up either having her implants entirely removed or replaced with a new set at some point during her life.
Worse, replace them, and you'll relive the pain, potential side effects, and expense all over again. But remove them, and you risk permanent changes to your breasts, like dimpling, puckering, wrinkling, or loss of breast tissue.
And don't forget the many other risks associated with breast implants, which include:
- Ongoing breast pain
- Hard lumps form around the implant
- Changes in nipple and breast sensation
- An implant ruptures or BURSTS!
- They can migrate and slide around
- Breast cancer becomes harder to detect
- Breast feeding is often no longer an option
Add to this to the $2,500-$5,000 price tag (and remember, they're NOT permanent) and you can see why traditional breast implant surgery is not something to decide on lightly!
Finally, it's important to note that silicone implants have only been available for the past 4 years, following a 14-year ban.
These implants were banned by the FDA in 1992, following concerns that they led to a number of serious health problems, including cancer and lupus.
Only 2 companies are authorized to manufacture silicone breast implants today, and both are required to complete 10-year studies on their safety.
