Don’t repeat the mistakes of Lera Kudryavtseva: myths and truths about breast implants that you should know about
At the end of December, the TV presenter stunned subscribers with a confession: 15 years later, she urgently had silicone implants removed. Lera Kudryavtseva spoke in detail about the operation and warned girls who want to get artificial Breasts. We analyze the stereotypes that have developed around mammoplasty with a plastic surgeon.
According to Kudryavtseva, she got a silicone breast 15 years ago. Her subscribers immediately remembered that the TV personality always answered all questions about plastic: “Everything is natural!”Well, he has the right. And everything was fine until the next medical examination, which showed that the star’s right breast was “leaking”. Moreover, over the past five or six years. The TV presenter was eventually removed the implants – she even published a photo of them.
“The sight is certainly unpleasant, but I decided to show you this “wonderful” picture, not to intimidate, but to understand the so-called “disaster”.
Lera’s goal is the same – to warn girls from repeating her mistakes. Moreover, Kudryavtseva assured that she does not intend to insert new implants, for her health is more important than the shape of the breast.
Meanwhile, plastic surgeons say that breast augmentation and correction operations are among the most popular. In the United States, such operations are carried out more than 300 thousand a year. We decided to analyze a number of stereotypes that have developed around this procedure. And they asked questions to the plastic surgeon Yuri Dikov.
Can a silicone implant leak? And why didn’t the TV personality, who had a regular medical check-up, find out about it sooner?
Implants are filled with silicone gel. It can’t leak, because it’s not liquid! And you need to know that around any implant in the body a year later, a collagen capsule is formed, which in any case does not allow the gel to flow out.
Actually, the TV personality answered this question as follows. “Since the implant is not water, but porridge from the gel, it flowed out for a long time and soaked all the tissues, which I cleaned for 4 hours. For 15 years, my immune system struggled with a foreign body in the body and so I constantly felt ” chronic fatigue syndrome. But this is my story, you’ll be fine. Just be healthy and get checked out!»
According to the surgeon, he saw a photo of the extracted implants, but doubts that it is gel. “To be honest, it doesn’t look like silicone. I would have listened to the surgeons who installed the TV host’s implants. Moreover, I heard another version that the star has long used polymers-they were previously introduced to increase the Breasts, buttocks, and lips. This material could have permeated the fabric and was difficult to extract. It is now banned.”
Does breast implant disease exist?
Plastic surgeons suggest using this term in quotation marks, since there are no serious studies on the topic, only individual observations. Some women feel chest and back pain, as well as chronic fatigue and joint pain, and associate it with implants. For example, Nicole Daruda fights to ensure that all women who decide to have mammoplasty know about the real risks. The girl herself was the owner of a silicone breast, but years later removed the implants. According to her, health problems (rash, fatigue, body aches) immediately stopped.
You will not find a definition of breast implant disease in any medical reference book. There are a million causes of chronic fatigue, the connection with implants is not exactly proven. But this story began in the West, where they like to sue large companies and get compensation. It is also worth remembering that a breast implant is a certified medical device. In 1992, the United States imposed a moratorium on their use. For ten years, the Supervisory authorities have studied the impact of implants on the development of cancer, various types of allergic diseases, etc. As a result, the moratorium was lifted, and their safety was proved. The number of breast augmentation operations is growing every year in the world, all using implants made in America, Brazil, and Europe.
Do implants have an expiration date?
There is no lifetime warranty. But each product is certified and has a passport. In General, after ten years, you may need to replace the implants. But not always. To prevent risks, up to 35 years of age, patients should undergo an annual ultrasound examination, which shows the state of the implants, the collagen sheath around them. After 35-40 years, you need an MRI analysis.
Does silicone breast affect breastfeeding?
In most cases, no. But it depends on the type of implant insertion. For a long time, placing the implant under the chest muscle allows you to make the breast completely natural to the touch. No stitches remain, as the incision is made either under the arm or in the halo of the nipple.
Still, what are the risks of mammoplasty?
Implants are a foreign body, which means that a woman’s body must adapt to them. Tissues and muscles should stretch, not immediately after surgery, for example, you can have sex. Sleeping on your stomach is also the first three months, according to reviews, problematic. And, conditionally, it is not recommended to jump with a parachute, engage in Boxing. By the way, the stories that silicone Breasts can be heavy are no more than a myth. The standard weight of the implant is 300 milliliters. That is, after the operation, you will become heavier by 600 grams – this does not represent a serious load for the spine.
