Will My Breasts Rupture?
There are many possible risks that may arise through the process of plastic surgery. With many possible complications only an incision away, it is important that surgeons use the utmost care during these procedures. Today, we will be discussing one particular complication that arises during breast implant surgery. The possibility of a rupture is something that is real, and a probability for any implant patient. Patients must realize that no implant will last forever. Implants can rupture or break, causing deflation. Many ruptures result from the natural aging of the implant, excessive compression to the breast, or trauma to the breast. If the implant was inserted incorrectly, there is a higher risk of a rupture. The most noticeable effect is that the size and shape of the breast changes. Depending on the size of the rupture, changes in breast appearance can occur over a few days or over a very long period of time. It is important for patients to monitor their breasts constantly to check for possible ruptures or other complications.
