Breast augmentation complication

It is the perception in our society that the bigger the breasts, the better. However, when it comes to the interaction and soft tissue dynamics of the breast implant and the breast itself, studies have shown that the bigger the implant, the more problems you will have.

If you choose an implant that is appropriate for your elasticity and breast dimensions, the soft tissue dynamic between your breast and the implant will be much better, increasing the longevity of your surgery.

So, what happens when we insert an implant that is larger than your breast can handle? First, you are going to have a more unnatural look, depending on your skin envelope and how tight your breast is. This is not necessarily bad, depending on your desired breast shape and size. With time, the implant stretches the soft tissue of the breast mound, and you will start developing a gap between the implant and the breast with shifting of the implant to the side when you lie down.

Other problems that can occur with bigger implants are back pain; loss of nipple sensation when the nerves are stretched beyond a critical point; loss of sensation in different parts of the breast; and visible rippling as the implant soft tissue envelope diminishes.  During your consultation, I will discuss these issues with you. You can still choose an implant bigger than your anatomy allows, but if that is the case, you will need to sign an additional consent form acknowledging that you understand these things can happen when you do not follow the recommendation of your surgeon.
