Potential Breast Augmentation Risks
Breast augmentation surgery is a safe and effective procedure that can help women achieve the confidence they have been lacking. During this procedure, Dr. Tyrone places a breast implant within a patient's breast to increase its volume and shape. Patients have several options regarding breast augmentation. These options include the type of incision through which the implant will be placed, the type of implant, the placement of the implant, and more.
The risks of this surgery, though rare, can be serious. To mitigate these risks, patients should be diligent in selecting a surgeon with a proven track record of great results and safety.
The possible risks and complications of breast augmentation surgery include:
- Excessive bleeding, swelling, or bruising after surgery
- Capsular contracture, which causes scar tissue to form around a breast implant and create a rippled look
- Implant rupture
- Unsatisfactory results
- Infection from surgery
- Breast or nipple pain
- Decreased sensitivity in the breast skin or nipple
Patients who are pregnant or nursing and those who are not in good general health are not good candidates for breast augmentation surgery.
Patients should also be aware that breast implants are not intended to last a lifetime, and will require removal or replacement at some point.
