Is Breast Augmentation Surgery Safe?

To discuss breast augmentation with board-certified Fort Myers plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña, please call (239) 348-7362 today.Breast augmentation is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States – a distinction it has enjoyed for over a decade. However, despite its popularity, many women wonder, “Is breast augmentation surgery safe?”

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure. As such, it comes with the same risks as any surgery such as bleeding, infection at the incision site, and negative reactions to anesthesia. These risks are greatly reduced when you choose a board-certified breast augmentation surgeon like Dr. Manuel Peña.

All of our breast augmentation procedures are performed in our accredited plastic surgery facility in Naples, Florida where your safety, comfort, and satisfaction are top priorities. Utilizing advanced breast augmentation techniques and adhering to the strictest of medical standards, we can help reduce your risk of complications while working to ensure the most pleasing results.

In addition to surgical risks, there are some complications associated specifically with breast augmentation. These include:

  • Capsular contracture
  • Loss of sensitivity
  • Implant rupture
  • Poor wound healing

Some of these risks can be reduced by choosing to have breast implants placed below the chest muscles. Some can be reduced by the care you take of your incisions after your procedure. Some can be reduced by steps you take leading up to your breast enlargement. All steps will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation with our Naples plastic surgeon.

Dr. Peña is an experienced, caring, and board-certified breast augmentation surgeon serving Fort Myers, Naples, Estero, and all surrounding areas. If you are looking for honest and useful answers to your breast augmentation questions or if you are ready to begin the process of planning your procedure, please contact us online or by calling 239-348-7362 today.
