Breast augmentation is a safe, commonly performed cosmetic surgery that has been performed for decades, with millions of women worldwide having undergone the procedure with satisfactory results. Thanks to extensive research and technological advancements, breast implants have become increasingly safe and reliable over the years.
In the United States, there are two common types of breast implants: silicone gel-filled and saline-filled. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducts rigorous testing on both implant types before approval. This testing process is critical to ensure that people can trust the safety and effectiveness of the breast implant they choose for their augmentation procedure.
What are the potential complications with breast implants?
Although rare, there can be some complications associated with breast implants. Such complications may include changes in the sensation of nipples or breasts, scarring, bleeding, and infection. Moreover, there could be long-term issues such as implant leakage or rupture.
A type of cancer called Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) has been linked to breast implants. However, the risk of developing this cancer is very low. Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) and other types of lymphomas (apart from ALCL) have also been reported. It is important for individuals with breast implants to attend regular follow-up appointments for routine monitoring. This helps to identify and address any potential issues early on.
What can be done to reduce the risks associated with breast implants?
Breast implant surgery, like any surgical procedure, poses risks that cannot be eliminated. However, there are effective measures and strategies that can be taken to reduce the likelihood of complications and increase the safety of the procedure. By implementing proactive measures, patients can experience a smoother and safer breast implant surgery process.
When considering breast implants, it's important to have an open discussion about your personal health history and understand the potential risks involved. With realistic expectations and a good understanding of the procedure, you can make an informed decision. It's also important to note that the safety of breast implants depends on various factors, such as your overall health, the type of implant used, and the surgical technique employed.
