It’s important to make an informed decision when undergoing any surgery. While augmentation mammoplasty is a relatively safe procedure, there are some risks associated with it, including:
- Implant rupture
- Breast implant illness (BII)
- Nipple numbness or loss of sensation
- Capsular contracture, which is a hardening of the scar tissue that forms around the implant
