Risks and side effects of breast augmentation
As with other surgeries, you need to know about the risks and side effects of breast augmentation. We recommend that you read on for this before making a decision. Our surgeons also suggest that two weeks after consulting with them, it's time for you to calm down, think about it, and then decide to take action. This will ensure that a serious and complete decision is made to act. The main risks of breast augmentation are:
In general, surgeons take all precautionary measures to ensure that you do not become infected. However, if an infection occurs, you should take it seriously. Most infections are mild (often infection of a wound or a delay in wound healing). These can be treated with a small number of antibiotics. But unfortunately, if the infection persists or worsens, you should go to the hospital for treatment. If the implant infection affects you, you will need to replace it. If this happens, you will have to wait for 3 to 6 months before applying a new implant.
Bleeding and bruising
Usually, bleeding occurs immediately after surgery when you are in the hospital. Sometimes, bleeding occurs a few weeks later. You will notice that the appearance of your breasts is very swollen and stiff. If you experience bleeding, you will need to go back to the operating room. The surgeon can resolve this issue. You have to stay overnight in the hospital, and also, you may experience more bruising, but everything has to be determined after that.
This happens when your body creates more tissue around the implant. These tissues are firmer than normal breast tissue. The result is that women feel pain and stiffness in the chest. The amount of hard tissue that builds up in your body varies from patient to patient. Your surgeon has talked to you about this before.
Some temporary changes in the feeling of the breast after the operation are very common. Common symptoms increase or decrease sensitivity around the scar or nipple (areola). Usually, both numbness and tenderness should gradually decrease. You should be aware that it takes several months. In rare cases, numbness may persist and is likely to be permanent.
Your surgeon will need to make incisions in your chest so that he or she can perform the operation, so the scar is preventable. Some wounds are hidden, but some are not. In general, over time, your wounds will heal. You can talk to your surgeon about the scars on your body on the day of the consultation.
There is always the risk that you will not be satisfied with the outcome of your surgery. This may be due to (the size, shape or fit and symmetry of the new breast). We recommend that you choose your surgeon carefully and make sure he understands your goals for this surgery. In addition, it is important to be aware that your implant may change or change direction over time. If this happens, you will need revision surgery.
This happens when the implant is opened and the contents come out. In this case, the usual procedure is for the surgeon to remove it and replace it if you wish. Implants are made in such a way that they do not damage the tissues of your body. Therefore, if something goes wrong, it is best to address the issue as soon as possible. If you think something is wrong with your implant, we recommend that you contact your surgeon for advice. Otherwise, side effects will occur. One of the reasons for implant rupture is direct damage to the implant. For example, throwing on the steering wheel in a car accident will cause the implant to rupture. Rupture can also occur when the implant is damaged when it is in place and the surgeon does not notice it. Again, we emphasize the importance of choosing a surgeon that you trust and believe is appropriate for surgery.
During the operation, the blood supply to certain parts of the body may be lost. Although this is very rare, if it does occur, the skin, tissue or area of the body will die. You will need other surgeries to remove those dead tissue.
