Listed below are the advantages as well as the risks that are associated with breast augmentation surgery.
Advantages Of Breast Augmentation
Soaring Levels Of Confidence
A beautiful body that a woman is proud to own will increase her confidence level tremendously.

Flattering clothes and swimsuits can now be worn with utmost confidence. Lifestyle and relationships will change for the better.
A Better Looking Body
Breast augmentation surgery is the surgical insertion of implants to enhance the size and the shape of a woman’s bosom. This surgery can leave a woman looking fuller, with larger breasts.
The breasts are also firm and of the desired shape. All signs of aging are got rid of with this procedure. Balance and posture are improved as well.
Goodbye To Push-Up Bras And Creams
From time immemorial, women have tried various methods to obtain that perfect cleavage. Right from unbearably tight corsets to uncomfortable push-up bras and messy creams, they have tried it all. Breast augmentation surgery will make sure that you will need none of that anymore. Absolutely perfect breasts that need no creams or bras to make them look full.
Risks Of Breast Augmentation
Risk Of Postoperative Infection
Like any type of surgery, breast augmentation surgery too carries the risk of causing postoperative infection. Most often this is a mild infection that can be treated with a course of mild antibiotics. Sometimes, however, the infection is very severe and does not disappear with antibiotics. This happens when the body does not accept the implants and the implants need to be removed immediately.
Capsular Contracture Woes
The body recognizes the newly fitted implant as a foreign body and forms hard, fibrous tissue around it. This is the body’s defense mechanism to protect the body and keep it healthy.
This condition can cause a lot of discomfort and is very painful as well. It can also cause the breasts to look distorted. When this happens, the surgery can be redone. However, in most cases the body again fights off the implants the same way.
Difference In Breasts
One of the rare and yet possible risks after surgery is finding that the breasts look different. Even when the same implants are used, there are times when the breasts are a different shape or a different size. If this is not a big difference, it can be left as it is; but if the difference is prominent, surgery will need to be repeated to replace the implants or re-position them.
