Risks of Breast Augmentation

 

Like any other type of surgery, breast augmentation comes with risks.  Selecting a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is a great start in reducing your risks, as you can be certain that your surgeon has received a formal education in plastic and reconstructive surgery.  However, problems do arise sometimes.  If you're opting to have breast augmentation surgery, familiarize yourself with the risks.  Learn what you can do to help reduce your risks, and talk with your surgeon.
