Breast augmentation with implants has been performed since the 1960’s and continued to be the world’s most popular cosmetic procedure worldwide (1).
However, as with any surgical procedure, possible complications may occur in association with breast augmentation or breast reconstruction procedures, as a result of individual health conditions, medication, surgical technique, and postoperative care.
At POLYTECH we believe in providing comprehensive safety-related information to patients, so that their decision will remain not only personal – but well informed.
The extent to which we may provide information directly to patients varies according to what is allowed by the local national legislation. Always make sure to ask your surgeon for comprehensive and clear information about the surgery and the products.
Careful planning and open discussion with your surgeon about the expected results can minimize the chances of unsatisfactory result. When considering a reoperation due to an unsatisfactory result, please note that the chances for complications increase with revision operation.
After breast implants surgery, it is important that you follow your surgeon’s recommendations, and that you undergo regular check-ups. If you are experiencing problems, aesthetic impairment or pain following breast implant surgery, you should immediately inform your surgeon, and consider the available solutions.
