Breast implants, whether saline or silicone, are designed to be durable and withstand various environmental conditions. While extreme heat can potentially affect saline implants by causing the saline solution to expand, the risk of rupture is minimal. Silicone implants, on the other hand, are even more resilient and less likely to be affected by sauna temperatures.
The video that has gone viral by my best friend Lauryn Bosstick is super misleading. I get that she is on her spiritual journey of implant removal, but please do not take down the entire army of proportional women.
- Scientific research and studies have shown that breast implants are generally not affected by saunas. The heat and humidity levels typically encountered in saunas do not pose a significant risk to the integrity or functionality of breast implants.
- Maintaining proper hygiene is crucial for everyone using a sauna, regardless of whether they have breast implants. Regularly showering before and after sauna sessions helps reduce the risk of bacterial or fungal infections. This applies to all individuals, regardless of their breast implant status.
- It is always important to monitor the condition of your breast implants, regardless of whether you use a sauna. Regular self-examinations and routine check-ups with your plastic surgeon are key to detecting any changes or issues with your implants. If you notice any discomfort, pain, or changes in the appearance of your breasts, consult your surgeon promptly.
The concerns surrounding the safety of going in a sauna with breast implants are largely unfounded. Scientific evidence and professional advice confirm that breast implants are generally not at risk in sauna environments. By maintaining proper hygiene, monitoring your implants, and seeking guidance from a qualified plastic surgeon, individuals with breast implants can confidently enjoy sauna sessions while reaping the benefits of relaxation and wellness.
