Some of the risks of breast implants include:
- reoperations (additional surgeries), with or without removal of the device
- capsular contracture (hardening of the area around the implant)
- breast pain
- changes in nipple and breast sensation
- rupture with deflation for saline-filled implants
- rupture with or without symptoms for silicone gel-filled implants
- migration of silicone gel for silicone gel-filled breast implants.
