Breast enlargement surgery is usually done when you have small breast or almost zero size breast. It can be also done after cancer treatment and when the breast becomes usually sagged. There are so many types of breast enlargement through various implants techniques including saline and silicone breast implants. But there are few risks and complications are associated with breast enlargement which made this surgery process insecure at times. So we can say that breast enlargement surgery is not safe.

Following are some of the issues that can occur in breast enlargement surgery:

Some issues that can occur in breast enlargement surgery

  • Rupture (breaking and leakage of the fluid):

Implant rupture is a severe problem that occurs when the silicone shell of an implant breaks. This can happen with either saline breasts enlargement or silicone breast enlargement Dubai.

If it’s a saline breast implant that you undergo then chances of rupture will be most likely to occur and all of the salines will leak out and the implant will go in vain.

As the silicone breasts implant is more glutinous and is not immediately absorbed by the body, a rupture can go flat. So, it can be avoided by various prevention measures. Usually, evaluation by MRI is necessary to determine if a silicone breasts implant is ruptured or not. It can also be avoided by removing ruptured implants. Providing neat and clean field for breasts implant may reduce the risk of getting the infection or capsular contracture. It is also suggested to remove the implant first, cleaned out the field and then replaced the breasts implantation.

  • Surgical risks:

There are also surgical and anesthesia risks are involved which made breast enlargement surgery unsafe. The quantity of anesthesia during the surgery really matters plus the pre and post surgery treatment issues are also important.

  • Infectious illness:

While undergoing breast enlargement, infectious risks are also involved. Sometimes due to the unhygienic environment, a patient gets some viral infections which rendered the surgery process unsafe.

  • Scarring:

The amount of scars sometimes depends on the age. With the age, skin becomes loose and sagged and likely to have more scars. Scarring also works with the type of skin. The intensity of scarring also gets more if someone has relatively thin skin or even darker skin tone may get more scars.


  • Severe Breast pain:

Pain is very subjective but many women report feeling burning sensations and discomfort initially after surgical treatment. Pain medicine will be prescribed to be taken if necessary, for the first 7 days. Your breasts will ache and continue feeling tender for a couple of weeks.


  • Capsular contraction:

Capsular contracture is associated with the breast enlargement Dubai around the implant and causes the scar tissue to constrict the capsule and then it distorted the shape by getting hard. This may result in ruthless pain but you can overcome this problem by removing the implant and performing a complete capsulectomy with or without replacement of the implant.

It should also be noted that saline implants have a lower rate of capsular contracture and that the risk of capsular contracture is much lower when the implants are placed under the pectoral muscles as opposed to directly under the breast tissue.
