What checkups or tests do I need to go through before breast implant surgery?

There are checks that you need to do to make sure that you’re fit enough for the surgery. That depends on your age. If you’re a young and fit individual, and you don’t smoke, basically we call it ASA1 which means you’re perfectly cleared for anaesthesia. Then you don’t really need to do anything, you don’t even need a blood test. If you’re above a certain age, then you may need to do some blood tests to make sure that you’re safe for anaesthesia.

Are breast implants an option for post-mastectomy patients?

A mastectomy is a surgery we do for patients with breast cancer. That’s when you remove parts of your breast or the whole breast. Yes, we do use implants and we use them immediately. So you can have a mastectomy and we can use the implant to do a reconstruction, or it can also be used in a delayed fashion. Some patients have a mastectomy done but no reconstruction and they come back at a later date for a reconstruction. So yes, implants are always an option.

What are the pros and cons of textured and non-textured breast implants?

The thing about textured implants is that most of the textured implants at the moment, there’s still some risk relation to ALCL. Studies have shown patients with round implants also have ALCL. But upon clarification, they realised that these patients have had both round and textured implants before. So they’re not exactly sure if round implants do cause ALCL. But the belief is that textured implant causes it. So round implants are definitely safer. To answer the question, I would say that I would definitely choose a round implant where possible.
