There are so many side effects of breast surgery, but why women are still taking the risk to do it?
It would appear that there has been a huge increase in breast enhancement surgery over the last decade. It has now come to a point that women can alter their breast size during their lunch break with a breast enhancement operation.
If you are reading this article, you are probably considering having an operation to increase your breast size. It is important to remember though that such an operation is associated with a number of potential risks.
It is important to be aware of breast implant side effects, how to prevent them (where possible) and what to do should they occur.
Leaking or Leaching of Breast Implant Material
If a saline breast implant leaks, the saltwater solution is seamlessly and harmlessly absorbed by your body. If a silicone gel-filled breast implant leaks, local complications such as hardening or scarring of breast tissue may occur.
Breast implants can break or rupture, resulting in deflation. Ruptures can occur for many reasons, including the natural aging of the implant, excessive compression or trauma to the breast. If rupture occurs, the size and shape of your breast may change. Typically, implant removal with replacement or another type of surgery is required if your breast implant ruptures.
Many women with breast implants can breast-feed, but in some cases breast implants may interfere with breast-feeding. For example, a periareolar incision (around the edge of the nipple) may disturb your milk ducts. In addition, placing implants below the chest muscle is least likely to disturb the milk ducts and may be an option if you plan to breast-feed.
Breast implants can make it slightly more difficult to read a mammogram. This should not be taken as a reason to skip your annual breast cancer screening exam.
Loss of Sensation
After breast surgery with implants, you may experience some loss of sensation in your nipple and breast area. This results from damage to nerve endings in the breast and nipple. The loss of sensation may become permanent. Certain breast augmentation techniques may confer a higher risk of this complication than others.
Capsular contracture occurs when scar tissue forms a capsule that compresses the implant, causing it to become hard and misshapen. This can occur any time after your breast implant surgery. Surgery is often needed to correct capsular contracture.
Occasionally, one or both of the breast implants shift below the fold where the breast meets the chest (inframammary crease), creating a line or indentation across the bottom of the breast. This double bubble breast augmentation complication can occur if the implants are too large or if they are poorly positioned. Double bubble is rare and can be corrected with revision breast surgery.
Alternatives to Breast Implants
If you are interested in breast augmentation but want to avoid implants, there are alternative procedures. One such alternative would be to use a breast serum such as Triactol.
Triactol can help increase the size of your breast, help lift the breast and help firm the breast. Triactol can also help improve the ability of the breasts to maintain moisture, improve the elasticity of the skin and keeps stretch marks from being visible.
Triactol is made from natural ingredients making it a safe, yet effective, alternative to breast enhancement surgery.
