Breast Augmentation – How Safe Is It?

Breast augmentation surgery has become extremely popular over the past decade or so and it is easy to see why. When it comes to choosing a new career path, choosing to have a boob job is often considered one of the best options available to you. However, how safe is breast augmentation?

First of all, the first thing that people will usually ask when they hear about your desire for breast augmentation is whether or not you have any kind of history of cancer. Breast implants are considered very safe when compared with saline-filled breasts, but some people do develop cancer after having a mastopexy procedure. The risk that your body is exposed to when having a breast augmentation is basically just as with any other invasive procedure. There is no guarantee that you will never have to deal with any side effects.

Another thing that people want to know is whether or not they are at risk of developing problems after having breast implants. Unfortunately, the answer is yes. Even though there are no long-term risks to having an implant placed under your skin, there are certainly risks that will arise from having this done on the interior of your body.

The main risk that people who have had breast augmentation say that they experience comes from bleeding. If you are taking certain blood thinning medications before having the procedure, you may experience a slight decrease in the amount of blood that is draining from your mammary glands. This may seem like a minor problem, but it does happen.

The second risk that people worry about is a large scar. Some women report that having a mastopexy is a major step in their life and one that they are going to have to deal with for the rest of their lives. When this happens, there is no telling what kind of permanent effect the scar will have on the body. It may be so severe that you will be unable to move around without a great deal of pain or you may notice that you have an uneven appearance to your chest and you are always checking yourself out for bumps or lumps.

When it comes to getting the safest augmentation option breast implants may not be your best option. This is one of the reasons why many women opt to go natural. However, the amount of scarring and risk associated with it will still make this method the safest method you can try out.
