Breast enhancement surgery has gained tremendous popularity over the last decade with hundreds of thousands of women getting their breast surgically enhanced every year. Breast enhancement, also known as breast augmentation or boob job, is without any doubt a wonderful way to boost your breasts and get the bosom you want. However, like any other surgery, breast enhancement also involves some risks and complications that every potential candidate must know before going under the knife. This will help you have realistic expectations from the surgery as well as to get the most out of it by choosing the right time for surgery.
Breastfeeding may not be possible after getting implants:
If you are planning to undergo breast enhancement and also want to become a mother in future and breastfeed your kids, better talk to your surgeon during the initial consultation and ask for his/her unbiased opinion. Most surgeons ask such women to wait until after they have weaned their last baby because implants, both silicone and saline, have been found to cause trouble in nursing, though this is not very common and most of the times women are able to feed their newborns with implants.
Leakage and rupture problems:
You must have heard that silicone implants are more prone to rupture and leakage. Advancements in technology have greatly reduced this risk, the modern silicone implant technology is very safe but still it is not 100% risk free. Chances of leakage are always there so beware of this side of silicone implants when choosing them for a more natural look and feel.
You may have to live with visible scars:
Latest techniques involve making incisions in the armpits or on the crease of breasts and chests making the scars as less visible as possible, but nothing like scarless breast enhancement surgery actually exists. Your surgeon can use different techniques to make the incisions as small and invisible as possible but you will still know where exactly the cut was made insert the implant.
If you are planning to increase your bustline, think of these risks as well besides thinking of your upgraded bra size and enhanced look.
