All surgery, including cosmetic surgery, carries risks. Although the vast majority of breast implants patients do not suffer complication and are very happy with their results, you should not undergo breast augmentation without the risks having been explained to you.
There are two types of risk; those who apply to any operation, such as bleeding, anaesthetic risk, and wound infection; and those that apply only to breast implant surgery. You must discuss these at length with your doctor at the end of your consultation and take away the Auralia information sheet about the risks to consider carefully at home. The following explains some but not all of the risks specifically associated with breast implants.
Leakage – If saline leaks the salt water is absorbed into the body and there is no health risk. The implants can be replaced. If liquid silicone leaks, there can be problems with inflammation and even scarring in the breast. Therefore we only use the cohesive gel silicone implants which have virtually eliminated this risk.
Implant infection – An infection involving the surface of the implant will probably need removal of the implant and a settling down period of about three months before the implant is replaced. The final result should not be affected.
Capsular contracture – for reasons that are not known the tissues which form around the implant, and which are normally not visible or palpable can shrink making the implant feel hard. A mild degree of this would probably be accepted by most patients but in the severe cases where the implants can feel like a stone revision surgery will be needed. The overall risk of problematic capsular contracture with textured implants is usually quoted as about 5 % but with smooth implants it is substantially higher. If capsule contraction does occur it may be treated successfully by a course of tablets for 3 months. If this doesn’t work further surgery is needed and then implants will feel soft again. In a small number of women the contraction can happen again. For a woman considering breast implants the risk of being a patient who gets recurrent capsule contraction is about 6 in 1000.
Cancer – There is no increase in the risk of death from breast cancer in women in any kind of breast implant. Studies have shown a reduced risk of breast cancer in women with silicone implants. Breast self-examination and mammograms can be performed effectively in women with implants.
Sensation changes – Temporary sensation changes in the breast skin and or nipples are common after implant surgery. In the vast majority of patients sensation will return to normal over the period of months. There is a small risk of a permanent loss of sensation which could involve the nipple.
