What Are the Potential Risks and Complications from Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures in the U.S. Many women will enjoy their implants for a lifetime without any serious complications. Like all surgeries, there is some risk with breast augmentation. Problems can occur during the procedure itself, during recovery, and even years after surgery. The following complications are some of the most common:

  • Capsular Contracture- The most important and frequent breast augmentation complication is capsular contracture, a condition that occurs when the capsule around the implant tightens, distorting the breast and in causing implant hardening and pain. The risk of this complication can be dramatically reduced by using a variety of techniques and methodologies. Dr. Sajjadian’s capsular contracture rate is very low.
  • Implant Leak/Rupture– Implants can leak or rupture, especially as they get older. Newer, modern implants are very strong and less likely to rupture.
  • Changes in Nipple and Breast Sensation- Some women experience sensitivitychanges in their breast and/or nipple after breast augmentation. This generally improves with time.
