The risks of breast augmentation pictures


Breast Augmentation is achieved through the placement of fluid-filled implants underneath the ?breast tissue to increase the size of, or reconstruct, the breast. There are currently two types ?of implants approved by the FDA: ?saline-filled and silicone-filled, both of which are contained in silicone shells. Prior to performing breast-augmentation procedures, a doctor will assess the suitability of the procedure for her patient. She will also advise her patient of the risks involved and inform her that most implants do have to be removed due to failure of the implants or ?complications.

According to the FDA, one in five women receiving implants containing silicone, and half of?those who receive the implants during breast reconstruction, will have to have them removed within 10 years due to complications. Complications include leakage of silicone or saline into the surrounding tissues, pain in the breast or changes in breast tissues, post-operative infections and delayed healing, and the growth of scar or necrotic tissue around the implants which can cause irritation and pain. Possible cosmetic problems include uneven size or appearance of the
breasts, visibility of the implants through the skin and creasing of the skin caused by wrinkles in the implant.

The FDA advises that women who do choose to get implants should monitor their breasts carefully for any changes, and those who receive silicone-filled implants should seek MRI screening for silent ruptures three years after the implant and every two years thereafter.
