These days, many women choose to get breast implants for a variety of reasons. While plastic surgery is often glamorized, it is just as dangerous as any other type of operation. There are many adverse effects that can occur as a result of breast augmentation.
Most people are not aware that breast implants do not last forever. Patients will likely require additional surgeries to maintain the implants throughout their lifetime. The cosmetic appearance of the breast may change and other complications such as implant rupture can arise. The risk of complications increases with each additional surgery after the primary surgery.
Women with silicone-filled implants may not notice if they have ruptured. Therefore, it is necessary to have an MRI performed every couple of years to check their condition. Since insurance providers may not pay for this procedure, over time the cost of MRIs may end up costing more than the initial surgery.
After implantation, you cannot go back. Even if you’d like your implants removed, your breasts will not have the same shape that they once did. Therefore, you’ll have to undergo additional surgery to restore your natural breasts.
Mammograms that screen for breast cancer will not be as accurate with breast implants, since they can block the imaging. In addition, implants often make it difficult or impossible for a mother to breastfeed her baby, since it hinders milk production.
If you or a loved one has suffered complications from breast implants, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact the Rhinelander personal injury lawyers at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by dialing (800) 242-2874 today.
