There are several risks involved with breast augmentation. Infection and bleeding are the primary concerns, both of which can be dealt with promptly by a physician.

With breast implants, the body may also tighten around an implant, making it feel firm. This usually only happens on one side of the body. The cause of this symptom is unknown, though it affects 5 to 7 percent of patients. The breast implant could also ripple, which happens more commonly in patients who have stretch marks. The final concern with breast augmentation is leakage—should the implant rupture, saline will leak out and the breast will deflate. If a silicone implant leaks, it is more difficult to detect.

Both implants are FDA approved. It is important to consult a board certified surgeon regarding breast enlargement.If you are looking for a great plastic surgeon in St. Paul, call Dr. Heather Rocheford at Rocheford Plastic Surgery at 651-739-1100
