Risks

Possible Complications following Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation can give you fabulous results. However, it also poses some risks that can lead to potential complications or unfavorable results. This page will provide an overview of the risks and complications associated with breast augmentation surgery.

Risks of Breast Augmentation

Capsular Contracture
Capsular contracture is a scar that forms around the implant, causing it to feel firm, look unnatural, and potentially hurt. When you see pictures of a woman with obvious implants who looks like she has "coconut breasts", she more than likely has a severe capsular contracture. If you develop a mild capsular contracture, you may not be bothered by it and may not even notice you have one. If you develop one that is moderate or severe, you will probably require breast surgery to correct the problem. Surgery involves removing the scar and replacing the existing implant with a new breast implant.

Placing the breast implant under the muscle has a lower risk of capsular contracture than placing the implant over the muscle which is one of the many reasons that Dr. Loftus recommends placement of implants below the muscle. Talk with your plastic surgeon about other ways to help minimize capsular contracture.
