Risks Associated with Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a major surgical procedure, so there are similar risks associated with this procedure as with others. For example, the biggest risks associated with breast augmentation surgery include:

  • Allergic reactions to anesthesia
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • And more

In order to minimize the possibility of these risks, your board certified plastic surgeon will examine your medical history to see if there are signs that you shouldn’t undergo this surgery.

There are other risks specifically associated with breast augmentation surgery, including:

  • Surgical scarring
  • Improper implant placement
  • Implant leakage
  • Implant rupture
  • Capsular contracture
  • Chronic pain
  • Changes in nipple sensation
  • Inability to breastfeed
  • And more

Your plastic surgeon will discuss all these risks with you to ensure you’re 100% comfortable before undergoing this surgery.

Is Breast Augmentation Right for You?

Deciding to opt for breast augmentation can be an incredibly personal decision, so it’s important for patients to discuss their candidacy with their plastic surgeons. In general, the best candidates for breast augmentation surgery are healthy nonsmokers who have realistic expectations for the outcomes of their breast augmentation surgery.
