Breast implants are a great solution to many women who are self-conscious about their figures and the size of their breasts. But have you researched the many dangers of them? Is it really worth it to pay thousands of dollars to feel and look this way? Read up on the dangers and it will make you think twice. Remember breast implants are not a woman’s only option. Below are some of the dangers cause by breast augmentation surgery.
A scar that can form around the implant after a certain period of time that can cause the breasts to not look natural and it can at times be very painful. Have you ever seen a woman who’s breasts are so large and perky they look unreal? Most likely she has a capsular contracture, this is mostly common with silicone implants.
Interference with Mammography
It is very important for every woman to get their Mammograms done to stay healthy. Implants do interfere with the ability to show all the breast tissues. A doctor can only see 75% of your breast tissue with implants.
Breast Implant Displacement
After surgery breast implants can move out of their position at any time. They can move any position and be noticeable; in order to fix this problem you can get surgery to put them back into place.
Saline Implant Deflation
These types of implants can develop leaks or even eventually deflate and your breasts will shrink. If this occurs you will need another breast augmentation surgery to have it replaced. This will most likely occur in implants that have not been overfilled. The risk for a woman to have deflation is about 4% in the first year of surgery and after is 1%. Silicone implants can experience the same thing except it is said to rupture.
This is the most common side effect of implants. Rippling is the visible appearance of waves of the skin over your implants also known as wrinkling. This occurs due to the saline moving around inside your implant, it is more noticeable when it occurs on the upper half of the breast.
Infections usually occur within two months of the breast surgery. They will occur in about 1% of all the breast enhancement surgeries. To cure an infection it will often require antibiotics and removing of the implant.
