Breast implant surgery comes with risks, as with any surgery. Some of the risks
associated with breast implants include infection, bleeding, scarring, and changes in sensation around the breast and nipple. Capsular contracture is a common complication where the scar tissue around the implant hardens, causing the breast to feel hard or painful. Implant rupture or leakage can occur, which may require surgical intervention. In rare cases, breast implants have been associated with a type of lymphoma called Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). It’s important to discuss these risks with a qualified plastic surgeon and make an informed decision about whether breast implants are right for you.
