Hi Buzzers! We all love a perfect image of ourselves and we are willing to go the extra mile to have it. From hitting the gyms every day and take any supplements, but what if our effort still not satisfy us? Well, women especially choose a cosmetic surgery to shape their body including their breasts. But, not all women are aware of the health risk behind it. So, before you make any decision here is some health factors you should know..
1. Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma
Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is not a breast cancer but it is cancer that attacks the immune system. The type is known by Medical associates with Breast Implant Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). The symptoms generally are swelling, lumps, pain, and breast asymmetry.
2. Late Infection of Ruptured Silicone Breast Implant
When you have a breast implant, it doesn’t mean it will be firm and fit forever. The fact is all breast implants will eventually break, even though it hasn’t known when. In some people, the implants last for 7 – 12 years. Sometimes when is broken or ruptured you won’t feel anything. It is called a silent rupture but the effect and health risk can affect you some years later such as infection. The bacterial flora can attach to the surface of an implant.
3. Necrosis of the breast
Necrosis is a local tissue death and caused by complications of the breast implant surgery. The dead cells will merge and feel like a lump in your breast.
4. Unable to breastfeed your Children
Some women with breast implant can breastfeed the children but some can not. It is because they have lost their breast tissues and glands which produce milk. Some amount of silicone also can pass through your children through breastfeeding.
5. Capsular Contracture
If you feel your breast is getting harder after the surgery, do not be happy yet. It doesn’t mean that your breast getting firmer, it can be a sign of capsular contracture. A normal breast should be soft and look natural while in capsular contracture breast is hard, painful, and look abnormal.
