Breast surgery is not a simple operation but is generally associated with low risks when performed by a qualified plastic and aesthetic surgery specialist. As with any surgical procedure, sudden complications can not be completely ruled out. The possible complications are best discussed personally between you and the surgeon.
As with any other procedure, bruising and swelling may occur. Only in isolated cases, these have to be remedied by a relieving operation, usually they heal themselves after a few days to weeks.
Rarely, the wound can inflame or wound healing disorders occur, which can later lead to wider scars. Also circulatory disorders or feelings of nipples are extremely rare.
Factors such as heavy smoking, diabetes or a blood clotting disorder often play a role. These points will also be explained in detail in the consultation.
Your Doctor will Explain Risks
However, a cure delay does not affect the new breast shape. A possible scar broadening can be compensated by a small later correction.
If the finest skin nerves are severed during the operation, the skin may temporarily feel numb in this area. Experience has shown that these sensory disturbances disappear by themselves. Your surgeon will inform you about the course of emerging more or less visible scars.
Both breasts are never completely symmetrical before surgery. The operation should achieve the best possible symmetry. Should noticeable deviations be detectable after the procedure in individual cases, these can be remedied in a later corrective intervention.
