or have had these symptoms appear at any time while the implants have been inserted. Always be “breast aware” and don’t ignore any discomfort or changes in your breast. Also, know what type of implant you have inserted within your body along with the manufacturer’s serial number of your implant; therefore, if there is ever a recall on your implant you can respond quickly to the given concerns.
If you do currently have a textured surface implant—BIOCELL, manufactured by Allergan seek immediate medical assistance to remove or replace your breast implant so that you do not get the rare cancer, breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), which is associated with the immune system.
Getting plastic surgery is a very tough and serious decision to make when it comes to improving your body image. This process should be well researched and the decision should not be made in haste. Oftentimes, we as people, attempt to fix some type of physical abnormality within our own minds by literally going under the plastic surgeon’s knife with our bodies.
We look at ourselves in the mirror and say, “I need to get this sucked out, that pushed up, lose this fat in this area, get a new….or change this or enhance that.” Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and you must come to terms with what will make you happy, but you should not ignore the facts when it comes to your health.
Our self-talk often reflects how we truly feel about ourselves on the inside and you should not make a decision to have plastic surgery if you feel the procedure would make another person favor you, love you more for a particular reason, or give you a new perspective on life to advance your career opportunities.
There are many risks involved with any surgery and you should do your due diligence to make sure you understand the health factors in making such decisions with your body. One cut or mishap from a doctor’s surgical tool could leave you casket sharp heading to your final resting place or mental anguish seeking another physician to correct what the first surgeon botched.
So if you are considering plastic surgery in any form, please consult with your family, friends, a therapist and several certified doctors to make sure the decision you are about to make is the best solution for your circumstance. Always self-reflect and ask yourself “What is the real reason I am making this decision?” Is it absolutely necessary for me to do this? What happens if something goes wrong? What are the pros and cons of this situation?
Once you’ve had time to process your concerns then proceed with a plan of action, but remember to pull on the wisdom, knowledge and advice from your inner support group. Don’t make a hasty decision alone and do not proceed with surgery without informing someone of your decision.
