Rupture: Breast implants will break sooner or later. So, you will need to remove or replace them after a certain period of time. Saline implants need to be removed as they get deflated quickly. On the other hand, silicone gel implants require removal as the silicone has chances of leaking out, which can cause the gel to drift outside the breast area.
Autoimmune diseases: Though the results are still debatable, some research studies have shown the increase of autoimmune diseases in those women who had breast augmentations.
Breast Cancer: As most of the breast implants make the mammography image of a tumor incomprehensible, they are considered to obstruct the timely detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. Though no research evidence indicates that implants cause breast cancer, the delay in diagnosis caused by these implants could potentially demand more radical surgery or may even prove to be fatal.
Despite the aforesaid health risks, you can still have safe breast implants. You may opt for trilucent breast augmentations instead of the silicone or saline ones, as the former consists of a soybean oil-based filler that is designed to interfere less with mammograms. Many women even choose autologous tissue transfer as an alternative to breast augmentations. So, make an informed choice when you decide to undergo breast implants.
