Possible complications from breast implants

As with any surgery, there are always risks associated. It is critical that patients understand all the risks associated with their procedure before moving forward. Education on the subject at hand can assist in making the right decision. Breast implants come with complications that patients will want to consider before undergoing this treatment. Some of the complications and possible reasons why a woman might consider breast implant removal include:

  • Capsular contracture – the formation of scar tissue around the implant after placement is known as capsular contraction and may become problematic for a patient to the point of considering removal.
  • Rupture/deflation – saline implants may rupture or deflate, resulting in the need to remove the implant and consider replacement of alternative solutions.
  • Infection – every surgery has a risk of infection, but this may result in a woman considering the removal of her breast implants.
  • Breast pain – depending on the placement of the implant, some women may experience pain due to their implants and consider removal.
  • Dissatisfaction with final results – when performed by an inexperienced plastic surgeon, some women may be dissatisfied with how their breasts look afterward.
  • Wrong breast implant size – some women may find that the implants they chose are too small or too large for their frame and may want to consider alternative options.
