Why Women Are Still Taking the Risk to do  Breast Enhancement Surgery?


It would appear that there has been a huge increase in breast enhancement surgery over the last decade.  It has now come to a point that women can alter their breast size during their lunch break with a breast enhancement operation. 

If you are reading this article, you are probably considering having an operation to increase your breast size.  It is important to remember though that such an operation is associated with a number of potential risks.

It is important to be aware of breast implant side effects, how to prevent them (where possible) and what to do should they occur.

  • Leaking or Leaching of Breast Implant Material

If a saline breast implant leaks, the saltwater solution is seamlessly and harmlessly absorbed by your body. If a silicone gel-filled breast implant leaks, local complications such as hardening or scarring of breast tissue may occur.

  • Rupture

Breast implants can break or rupture, resulting in deflation. Ruptures can occur for many reasons, including the natural aging of the implant, excessive compression or trauma to the breast. If rupture occurs, the size and shape of your breast may change. Typically, implant removal with replacement or another type of surgery is required if your breast implant ruptures.

  • Breast-Feeding

Many women with breast implants can breast-feed, but in some cases breast implants may interfere with breast-feeding.  For example, a periareolar incision (around the edge of the nipple) may disturb your milk ducts. In addition, placing implants below the chest muscle is least likely to disturb the milk ducts and may be an option if you plan to breast-feed.

The location of the augmentation incision has a direct bearing upon milk production capability.  An incision around the areola or across a portion of it will reduce nerve response more than an incision under the breast or in the arm “pit.”  Placement of the implant can also affect breast functionality. 

An implant positioned directly under the glandular tissue is more likely to put pressure on the glandular tissue or structurally impede milk flow, resulting in reduced milk production over time, as compared to an implant positioned under the chest muscle away from the gland. 

  • Mammography

Breast implants can make it slightly more difficult to read a mammogram. This should not be taken as a reason to skip your annual breast cancer screening exam.

The implants do diminish full breast visualization during mammography. The most important factor is where the implants are placed. Those “inserted” below the chest muscle are less likely to obscure a mammographic view than those placed above. 

Both silicone and gel implants are to some degree radio opaque (they look like white “blobs” and may prevent visualization of the tissue below). Depending on which studies are cited, it’s estimated that implants obscure between 15 percent to more than 50 percent of breast tissue.

  • Loss of Sensation

After breast surgery with implants, you may experience some loss of sensation in your nipple and breast area. This results from damage to nerve endings in the breast and nipple. The loss of sensation may become permanent. Certain breast augmentation techniques may confer a higher risk of this complication than others.

  • Capsular Contracture

Capsular contracture occurs when scar tissue forms a capsule that compresses the implant, causing it to become hard and misshapen. This can occur any time after your breast implant surgery. Surgery is often needed to correct capsular contracture.

  • Double Bubble

“Double bubble” is a descriptive term for a postsurgical complication that can occur after breast augmentation with breast implants. Specifically, double bubble happens when an implant drops down behind the natural fold (inframammary crease) where the lower breast meets the chest, rather than forward into the breast.


This shifting creates an unnatural indentation or line across the bottom (lower pole) of the breast; this is particularly visible when the arms are lifted above the head. When viewed in profile, double bubble is said to have a “four-breast effect.”

  • Alternatives to Breast Implants

If you are interested in breast augmentation but want to avoid implants, there are alternative procedures.  One such alternative would be to use a breast serum such as Triactol. 
Triactol can help increase the size of your breast, help lift the breast and help firm the breast.

  Triactol creme can also help improve the ability of the breasts to maintain moisture, improve the elasticity of the skin and keeps stretch marks from being visible.
Triactol is made from natural ingredients making it a safe, yet effective, alternative to breast enhancement surgery.
