What are the risks of breast asymmetry surgery?

Breast asymmetry surgery is safe. This surgery has been performed countless times by highly qualified, experienced surgeons. However, all surgery has a very small amount of risk.

There is always the risk of complications. These are rare but do happen. If you notice any of the following symptoms then contact your surgeon immediately:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Chest pain, shortness of breath or rapid heart beat
  • Infection
  • A sudden increase in pain

Other risks include an adverse reaction to anaesthesia, the implant breaks or leaks, capsular contracture, haematoma, reduced or loss of nipple sensation and unacceptable results. There is also the risk of fluid forming around the implant.

There is also the possibility that the procedure will need to be repeated a second or even a third time.

There have been some media reports which argued that breast implants can cause breast cancer. But there is no concrete evidence of this. At present, a link between implants and breast cancer has NOT been proved.

Some women have reported having fever, joint pain, fatigue and breast pain after surgery. These have been seen as an immune system disorder but again, no link has been proved between the two.
