Risks of Breast Augmentation Explained

Breast Augmentation Surgery or mammoplasty, is a surgery to increase breast size. This surgery, though applicable to both genders, especially for some women, is a way to feel more confident about themselves whereas, for others it is a part of a correctional procedure due to underlying conditions. While the reasons could differ from patient to patient, the procedure remains the same and therefore, a thorough consultation from a Breast augmentation surgeon or a cosmetic surgeon is a prerequisite before undergoing Breast Augmentation surgery.

Consulting a Breast Augmentation surgeon or a plastic surgeon and discussing your goals with the surgeon is a non-negotiable as undergoing a cosmetic surgery is a crucial decision. Hence, it is essential to evaluate the care required, the risks and the recovery period before taking the leap. While breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures performed across the globe, it is critical to understand breast augmentation risks, such as:

Implant Complications:

Adverse outcomes occur in at least 1 per cent of Breast Augmentation patients at some point. Complications such as  – Asymmetry, Breast Tissue Atrophy (Shrinking of skin), Calcification (Hard lumps in the skin around the implants), Deflation, Hematoma (Collection of blood around the surgical area) and Inflammation are some of the complications that could occur.

Therefore, it is essential to remember that Breast Implants aren’t a permanent device and need regular care.

Additional Surgeries:

As a result of the above mentioned complications there is a probability of the patient requiring additional surgery to correct the complication or to maintain the implants over a period of time. The type of surgical procedure depends on the complication involved. Surgical procedures such as: Implant removal, Scar revision, Biopsy might be undertaken.

However, there is no guarantee that you will have a satisfactory outcome from a reoperation.

If you are experiencing any of the above mentioned symptoms after a Breast Augmentation in Bangalore, contact your breast augmentation surgeon or book an appointment with Pink Apple Aesthetics.


Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma or otherwise known as BIA-ALCL is an uncommon cancer that has been confirmed only in patients with breast implants that have a rough surface. As of July 2019, such incidents range from 1 per 3,817 patients to 1 in 30,000.

BIA-ALCL is not a cancer of the breast tissue but instead is located in the scar tissue that forms around the implant. BIA-ALCL is often curable if diagnosed and treated early. It is important to immediately seek treatment if the patient notices any swelling around the breast implant.

Breast Augmentation risk is a factor to be understood and discussed with your surgeon at length. Only after you’ve agreed to the mentioned pre-requisites of the surgery, choose to undertake it.

Above all, remember to consult a professional with experience to avoid recurring complications and follow the instructions of your breast augmentation surgeon to the lost dot.
