Considering breast augmentation Weston is a major decision that is likely to excite you. However, you may have many questions, and understandably want to understand the risks. Breast implants are an ideal way to achieve a fuller figure. But equally true is the fact that both silicone and saline implants comes with some degree of risk. ‘Which is the safest implant’?
Though your surgeon can educate you well about the options and suggest what will fit you the best; having some basic details beforehand will help. Here is some essential information which you should consider so you can undergo surgery with confidence.
No matter which type of implant you choose, both will require you to go have anesthesia and get a small incision during the breast augmentation Weston surgery. The risks that accompany the procedures include:
- Capsular contracture or scar tissues which may alter the shape and look of the implant
- Breast pain
- Anesthesia risks
- Temporary change in nipple and sensation in breast
- Implant leak (rupture)
- Poor scarring
- Wrinkling of the skin over the implant
- Additional surgeries, with or without removal of the device
Ruptured saline and silicone implants both call for the need of a second surgery.
What Happens When a Saline Implant Ruptures
In the unlikely event a rupture should occur, the implant will deflate and one can easily notice that there is a problem. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water, and when it leaks the solution is absorbed by the body and you won’t experience any side effects. Surgery will be needed to replace the flat implant with a new one.
What Happens When a Silicone Implant Ruptures
A rupture in a silicone implant may go undetected for years. Several cases have been reported where silicone remains trapped inside the implant capsule and the patient remains unaware about the leak. These silent ruptures can cause pain or changes in the appearance of your breast, and can be detected via MRI scans.
