If you have breast implant surgery, massage breasts regularly to prevent excessive scar tissue formation around the implant.
Between 20 and 30% of breast implant patients will need another procedure within 10 years. 10% of implants rupture in less than 5 years.
Capsular contraction is one of the most common complications of breast implants. The scar tissue around the implant hardens. This is less of a problem with saline implants than silicone implants.
A change in body weight can require surgical revision. Repeated expansion and contraction of the breasts thins out the breast tissue in the same way as if you have no implants.
Significant weight loss, especially in the case of saline implants inserted directly above the pectoral muscle, may result in the edges of the pouch showing through the skin.
