What are the risks of breast aesthetic surgery? Among the risks of this operation, infection, bleeding, dislocation of implants, sensory loss and wound healing problems are solved.

Breast aesthetic surgery, like any other surgical procedure, comes with certain risks and potential complications. It’s important for anyone considering this type of surgery to be aware of these risks in order to make an informed decision. Here are some of the most common risks associated with breast aesthetic surgery:

  1. Infection: Infection is a risk with any surgical procedure. After breast surgery, patients are given antibiotics to help prevent infection, but in rare cases, infection can still occur. Signs of infection include fever, redness, and discharge from the incision site. If an infection does occur, it can be treated with antibiotics or, in severe cases, by removing the implants.
  2. Bleeding: Bleeding can occur during or after breast surgery, and may require additional surgery to stop the bleeding and remove any accumulated blood.
  3. Dislocation of implants: Implants can become dislodged or shift out of position, which can affect the appearance of the breasts. This can happen as a result of trauma or other factors, and may require additional surgery to correct.
  4. Sensory loss: Sensory loss in the breasts and nipples is a common side effect of breast surgery, particularly with procedures that involve larger incisions. This can be temporary or permanent.
  5. Wound healing problems: Some patients may experience wound healing problems, such as slow healing or excessive scarring. In rare cases, wound dehiscence (when a wound reopens) can occur.

Other less common risks include anesthesia complications, seroma (a buildup of fluid around the implant), implant rupture, and capsular contracture (when scar tissue forms around the implant and causes it to harden).

It’s important to note that while these risks do exist, the vast majority of breast surgeries are successful and without complications. By choosing an experienced and qualified surgeon, following all pre- and post-operative instructions, and being aware of the potential risks and complications, patients can minimize their risk and increase their chances of a successful outcome.
