Since women are more conscious about their beauty, even from olden times, they have tried to improve what they naturally had, to get more attention. Women first tried to wear padded clothing for this purpose. The first breast implant surgery was performed in 1895. The silicone implants were developed only in 1961. The saline implants followed in 1964. There have been other substances developed, but saline and silicone are more common.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has stated that the breast augmentation is one of the most common types of surgeries that are being sought out in the country. The procedure of breast implant is used cosmetically to enlarge a naturally small breast, to restore breast volume lost following pregnancy and to achieve better symmetry when breasts are moderately disproportionate in size and shape.

Risks of Breast Implant Surgery

The decision to have breast augmentation surgery is extremely personal and it is better to understand about the risks and complications of breast implant before taking a decision. The risks of breast implants and complications after breast augmentation include:
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Bleeding and Infection
  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Poor healing of incisions
  • Blood clots
  • Changes in nipple or breast sensation (may be temporary or permanent)
  • Wrinkling of the skin over the implant
  • Breast implants are not guaranteed to last a lifetime.
  • Pregnancy, weight loss and menopause may influence the appearance of augmented breasts.

Before the breast enlargement procedure, there should be a better understanding between the patient and the surgeon and they should discuss the type of procedure that will be used. The differences are in the type of implant, the incision that’s required and where it will be placed. All these factors will have an impact on the final appearance of the breasts.

The surgery takes only an hour or two to complete the procedure and after breast augmentation patient will be able to get back into routine within a week. The scar will most likely be visible for six weeks or even for a few months and the scars will fade after some time.
