If you have some money to spare, there will be no one blaming you if you decide to augment the size of your breast. Despite so, you must be considerate about the possible risks or side effects of breast enlargement. Take a look at this list of risks that you might encounter from breast augmentation surgery.
Deflation of an implant
Breast enlargement surgery commonly involves the insertion of an implant into your breast tissue. Sometimes breast implant can deflate and experience rupture, and they will leak into the breast. A breast implant will usually consist of either silicon or saline water. Saline water tends to break easier despite being a lot safer than the silicone counterpart. Silicone might be harder to deflate, but once they deflate it can be pretty dangerous for you. Once an implant deflates, you really need to replace them immediately and get them out of your body.
Breast are not Symmetrical
One of the worst risks of having breast enlargement surgery is that sometimes your breast can end up asymmetrical. This can be either the size, the shape or the form of your breast. When this happens, of course, the only way to fix them is to have another surgery intended to make it symmetrical. This type of risks usually depends on the doctor that operates you. Making asymmetrical breast is such an art form that each doctor might give different end result. For that very reason, you do need to choose your doctor carefully.
Your Breast Hardens
One of the risks of having a breast implant is that you might have to deal with your breast hardening up and becoming as hard as a rock. This is usually called capsular contracture. There are four different stage of capsular contracture in which stage one would be the softest, and step four would be the hardest and the most painful. Of course, this can be really painful for women. There is no exact reason why capsular contracture might happen, but it can be caused by inflammation or something more severe than that.
A hematoma is when there is a blood clot in your body, in this case in your breast tissue. When this happens, it needs to be dealt immediately because it can be fatal and cause death. Some of the symptoms of hematoma include pain, swelling, and inflammation near the site of the surgery. This usually happens when your body rejects the implants. If this happens, you need to have another surgery in order to take away the blood clot. It can be through a blood drainage or sometimes you have to take the implant out with a view to getting the blood clot out too.
Effects on Mother who Breastfeed
Breast enlargement surgery can also affect women who are planning to be a mother. Some women have not been able to breastfeed their child because of breast enlargement surgery. Despite there are mothers who are successfully breastfeeding their baby with a breast implant, the risk still exists. You might have to deal with the fact that the silicone might travel from your breastmilk to your baby. Not only that is highly dangerous for your child, it might also be risky for you. That is why you do need to consider all of these before you decide to have your breast augmented.
