Mesotherapy Can Help Your Patient With Breast Implant Concerns

It has been known for a while now, thanks to research from several countries ed that any kind of breast implant may not be safe. The concerns range from the health risks that a woman may encounter before, during and after breast implant procedures. There are also other consequences of failed implant procedures.

For decades the concerns had to do with silicone gel-filled implants and in particular the fact that they can rupture and cause auto-immune disorders.  However, that concern is not longer legitimate because  silicone gel filled implants are no longer legal for plastic surgeons to place in a person’s body. However you may still encounter a woman from an older generation who is dealing with scar tissue, loss of sensation and other problems due to silicone breast implants that mesotherapy can help with.


A Breast Implant
One of the first line concerns about breast impants that silicone gel-filled implants may rupture and cause autoimmune diseases such as scleroderma and lupus erythematosus may result. Both diseases are fatal.

Yet another common concern is capsular contracture, which is the shrinking of the scar tissue around the implant. This can cause painful hardening of the breast or distort its appearance. Mesotherapy can be of assistance in this case, helping to smooth out the contracted appearance and cosmetic injeciton therapy can help plump up areas of contracture that seem puckered or shrunken.

Another risk to implant surgery is the formation of calcium deposits in the tissue that surrounds the implants. This causes the breasts to become rock hard and there may be pain and infection as well. Mesotherapy may help soften these tissues, depending on the severity of the case.

Yet another classic concern is shifting of the implant. This can result in an implant with unnatural look. This is sometimes referred to as migrating breast implants and often means that they must be removed.

Loss of nipple sensation is also common, especially if the incision point for the implants was made around the nipple area.

Breast implant surgery also has many known risks that are commonly associated with any type of surgery including complications from general anesthesia, infection, hematomas, and skin tissue death resulting from the treatments.

Results and Effects

People who may have cause for concern about their implants may experience autoimmune-like disorders such as swelling of the joints, swollen glands, fatigue, headaches, muscle weakness, rash, nausea, vomiting, hair loss and swelling of the hands and feet. Mesotherapy can help treat the joint problems, msucle weaknss, hair loss and the swelling of the limbs.

A study done by Mentor, a company that manufactures implants for North American plastic surgeons found that 45% of women needed another operation on their implants within five years of receiving them.  This is why it is very possible that you may see women with issues in your practice and it is very possible that you can help them with mesotherapy treatments.
