FDA advised a guideline to consider before deciding to go for your Breast Implants Surgery which includes understanding to your personal reasons and expectations to undergo for the breast Implant Surgery. FDA provided following important points which you should consider before going for the Breast Implants Surgery or Breast Augmentation, reconstruction Surgery.

Consideration  before going for Breast implants surgery

  • After Breast Implants Surgery the longer you have breast implants, the more likely you are to experience local complications and adverse outcomes.
  • Your Breast implants are not lifetime devices, the longer you have your breast implants, the more likely it will be for you to have them removed with breast implant surgery.
  • Your mind should be ready that you will need to have additional breast implants surgery.
  • Most common complications and adverse outcomes are capsular contracture, re-operation, implant removal, and rupture or deflation of the implant. Other complications are asymmetry, wrinkling, scarring, pain, and infection at the incision site.
  • If you have your breast implants removed but not replaced, you may experience changes to your natural breasts such as dimpling, puckering, wrinkling, breast tissue loss or other undesirable cosmetic changes.
  • Many of the changes to your breast following implantation may be cosmetically undesirable and irreversible.
  • If you have silicone gel-filled breast implants, you will need to undergo periodic MRI examinations in order to detect ruptures of the implant that do not cause symptoms (“silent ruptures”). For early detection of silent rupture, the FDA and breast implant manufacturers recommend that women with silicone gel-filled breast implants receive MRI screenings 3 years after they receive a new implant and every 2 years after that. MRI screening for implant rupture is costly and may not be covered by your insurance.
  • If you have breast implants, you will need to monitor your breasts for the rest of your life. If you notice any abnormal changes in your breasts, you will need to see a doctor promptly.
  • If you have breast implants, you may have a very low but increased risk of developing a rare type of cancer called anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) in the breast tissue surrounding the implant. (ALCL is not breast cancer.) Women diagnosed with ALCL in the breast may need to be treated with surgery not as breast implant surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
