Potential Risks of Breast Augmentation

Like any surgical procedure, breast augmentation may result in risks such as excessive bleeding, improper wound healing, and infection. Risks specific to breast augmentation include:

Capsular contracture – A condition in which scar tissue forms around the breast implant

  • Asymmetrical results
  • Breast implant rupture
  • Breast implant rippling or wrinkling
  • Interference with mammograms
  • Interference with breast feeding
  • Reduced sensitivity

Dr. Kleto works to reduce your risks of issues such as capsular contracture, bottoming out, and double bubble by offering submuscular breast implant placement. This placement will also reduce your risk of interference with future mammograms and breast feeding, as well as your risk for visible wrinkling and rippling.

While there is no guarantee against aesthetic complications, great care is taken in the placement of your breast implants to provide symmetrical and pleasing results. With over two decades of experience, Dr. Kleto works with the eyes of an artist to help ensure the final results of your procedure offer you natural looking, symmetrical, and beautiful breasts for years to come.
