Reconstruction after breast implantation
Risk of connective-tissue diseases and other disorders after breast implantation
London, November 10 (ANI): Amy Winehouse is considering undergoing breast implantation
surgery once again, sources say.
Studies have identified a pattern (shared by many cosmetic surgery procedures) that suggest women who undergo breast implantation
are slightly more likely to have undergone psychotherapy, have low levels of self-esteem and have a higher prevalence of depression, suicide attempts and mental illness as compared with the general population.
Local complications are common after post-mastectomy reconstructive breast implantation
, with an adverse event rate of 31% in one large prospective study, reported Dr.
Part IV considers an important counter-argument to the thesis, which is that breast implantation
practices are a form of resistance to rigid, biologically based conceptions of sexual identity and that, as a result, the role of the law in the breast implant controversy might be read as providing some protection for this practice.
We therefore urge that a national model of informed consent be developed for women undergoing breast implantation
, and that the effectiveness of this model be monitored," Bondurant said.
