Breast Implants and Augmentation : Things to Consider Before Getting Breast Implants & Breast Augmentation
Breast Implants and Augmentation - Things to Consider Before Getting Breast Implants / Breast Augmentation - Plus Crucial questions to ask yourself, the Doctor and the Surgeon. There are several important things to consider before deciding to undergo breast implant surgery, including understanding your own expectations and reasons for having the surgery. Below are some things the FDA thinks you should consider before undergoing breast augmentation, reconstruction or revision surgery. Breast implants are not lifetime devices; the longer you have your implants, the more likely it will be for you to have them removed. The longer you have breast implants, the more likely you are to experience local complications and adverse outcomes. The most common local complications and adverse outcomes are capsular contracture, reoperation and implant removal. Other complications include rupture or deflation, wrinkling, asymmetry, scarring, pain, and infection at the incision site. You should assume that you will need to have additional surgeries (reoperations). Many of the changes to your breast following implantation may be cosmetically undesirable and irreversible.
