Breast Surgery Risks

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks. It is extremely important to understand the procedure and risks involved with breast augmentation surgery. Breast augmentation should always be done for your own personal body image goals, not for the benefit or preference of any other person.

Typically, breast augmentation surgery risks or complications are minimal, temporary, or easily fixed. In your consultation at our Kansas City plastic surgery office, Dr. Rast will walk you through every step of the breast surgery procedure and explain the benefits, risks, and potential complications. You will be able to ask any question you like, to ensure that you completely understand the surgery and we understand your body image goals.

Typical Risks Associated With Breast Implants

The risks of getting breast implants generally include the following:

  • Scarring/Scar Tissue
  • Capsular Contracture
  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Changes In Breast Sensation
  • Implant Leakage/Rupture
  • Risks Associated With Anesthesia
  • Slow Healing
  • Blood Clots

Any of these conditions may require additional, revisional surgery to replace or remove your implants. It is important to know that that breast implants do not hurt your overall health, as careful medical reviews have proven no link between breast augmentation and disease.

Other Considerations

No Life Time Guarantee – With age and body changes, future surgery may be needed to repair your implants.

Breasts Will Still Age/Sag – Pregnancy, weight changes, and aging can change the appearance of your breasts over time.

Health Insurance Coverage – Having a breast augmentation may affect your health insurance coverage, so talk to your provider and read over your health plan closely.

Future Exams – Regular follow-up appointments are necessary to evaluate your breast health and the health of your implants.
