Risks of Breast Augmentation/Breast Implants
Breast Implants cannot be considered permanent surgical devices and it may be necessary to remove or replace them in response to problems such as: deflation, capsular contracture (scarring with hardness and tightness around the implant), bleeding, or infection.
Our patients wear a supporting bra for 3-4 weeks to encourage good wound healing and minimize complications. Most patients return to work 2-3 days following surgery and their normal exercise routine at 4 weeks. Scar maturation occurs in 18-24 months.
