Mammograms may be one of the more dreaded things on your healthcare to-do list—right up there with pap smears and visits to the dentist’s office. But, you can’t ignore the fact that they’re one of the most important preventative measures a woman can take when it comes to protecting her health.

Are your implants getting enough attention? Ahem, from you that is!
It’s tempting to believe that once you’ve made the decision to get breast implants, that the process is a done deal. In fact, many women believe that the only time they’ll ever have to thing about their implants again is when they’re admiring themselves in a hot new bikini!
For the most part this is true. Implants do not require a lot of maintenance. But there is one thing that I feel all women with breast implants should make sure to do periodically: get MRI scans of their breasts.

Fat injections have been used for a long time to rejuvenate the aging face by restoring it’s youthful volume, and to create some not-so-natural “volume” in the rear during a Brazilian Butt Lift. But (no pun intended), until recently, fat transfer to the breast has been reserved for breast reconstruction after cancer surgery.

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
And you know what that means… lots of pink ribbons, and lots of reminders to do your self breast exams!
Every woman over 20 should know how to do a proper self breast exam. The best treatment for breast cancer is early detection, so make sure to take five minutes every month to do a good exam.
Pick a day that’s easy to remember like the “first Friday” each month and stick to it!
For all you ladies who’ve had a little surgical enhancement, this is for you too! Remember, breast implants don’t cause breast cancer, or make it harder to detect breast cancer. In fact, breast implants are still the most popular method of breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery.
Check out this great “how to” VIDEO on how give yourself a proper exam!
3 Important Things to Keep in Mind While Watching this Video
- You should be bare chested for your exam. Don’t try to do the exam through your shirt or bra like she does in the video.
- Use concentric circles to make sure you examine the entire breast, and use the same pattern every time so you don’t miss a spot.
- Don’t skip the armpit step. It’s really important to feel those lymph nodes too.
