Should I still get surgery even though there are many risks?

I have thought about getting breast implants for quite awhile. Two reasons are because: a) I have gotten many rude comments about them in the past because of them being small (I'm an A). b) I think it will help my self-esteem. I know that the cost of surgery is high. I also know that there are many risks such as capsular contracture, uneven results, leaking and/or breaking, excessive bleeding & swelling, severe infections, scars, pain, etc. Even though there are these risks and the cost of surgery is expensive should I still get implants?

If you feel like you really need them and want to take the risk then I would do it..but do it for yourself! Don't let peoples comment make or break you. I'm sure there is someone out there who will love you for what you have. Just work with what you have & show confidence.  (+ info)

Some rules for food and some rules for exercises please, oh and any possible injury causing exercise (such as sit ups-major psoas contracture, possible discal injuries and the fact it only stimulates rectus abdominus for 30 degrees) no thanks, so pray tell.

Can anyone give me more inforamtion about capsular contracture? I had a breast enhancment in March. My right?

breast is soft and natural, my left one seems harder. I don't know why I just noticed this or I don't know if it's turning into capsular contracture. Also, is it something you can live w/. So far no pain, just feels strange. It looks fine too, like the other one. Just didn't know if it was something that I could live with. I've been massaging like crazy trying to help. Any info? I can't afford to go to the doctor right now.

Dupuytron's Contracture - home/herbal remedies?

I was recently diagnosed with this condition and want to know if there are any non-surgical treatments available that are both effective and safe

There are experiments being conducted using enzymes to treat the thickened bands of skin, which show promise but are not yet out of the lab. The only treatments currently which are effective to my knowledge involve surgery. You would want to speak with a surgeon who specialized in hands, and discuss with him how radical a repair you would need. In some cases, they use steroid injections. Since the problem usually progresses slowly, unless your hand function is really impaired, you probably have ample time to explore your options for treatment. The treatments options really depend on how much skin is affected and how thick the band of restriction is. You could be talking simple splitting it, a partial fasciotomy, or a full one. Find an expert in hand surgery, and get the full story, and you will be able to make a much better decision. There aren't any home/herbal remedies that I am aware of, because it's not really a disease with an identifiable cause. It seems to be more a genetic thing, associated more with Scandanavians and males. The trouble is with the palm of the hand, making the fingers curl in. They still move, the problem isn't with the tendons, bones or muscles, so I can't think of any exercise or physical therapy that would help. Perhaps you could try using an emollient hand cream and massaging it into the skin of the hand to keep it supple as possible, but there really isn't anything you can do about the thickness- and that is what the problem really is. I've only known of two people with the problem, and they both opted for the surgical repair. One had to have the surgery done twice, and the other never had another problem with it. With both of them, it affected their dominant hand, though. If that's not the case with you, you might choose to simply not do anything, or wait until the hand is really nearly unusable. Sorry, that's all the info I have.  (+ info)

dupuytrens contracture.which parts of the body can be affected.?

Dupuytren was a French army surgeon who made a number of contributions to medicine, not least was having a name that generations of medical students struggled to spell.

Dupuytren's contracture is a thickening, fibrosis and contraction of the palmar fascia of the hand (s). it begins to be noticeable as a thick lump under the skin below the little finger. Gradually as the condition progresses the little finger becomes more and more flexed and other fingers become involved.

Treatment is surgical and is usually delayed until the finger position becomes a nuisance. It is not rare, I see maybe 1-2 a year. rarely one sees an identical condition affecting the equivalent planter fascia of the foot. (It is possible that is named after someone else?)

is a muscle contracture bad?

how long will it take to heal?

contracture-a shorting of a muscle or tendon due to stress placed upon said fibers.

That would depend on whether you can relieve the stress or not. If not then it will never heal.
