What are some common problems with Breast Implants?

I am considering getting breast implants but want to understand all of the possible problems that could occur. I am sure the chances that these issues could occur are small but it is still important to me that I understand the risks. Some people call me a worrywart but I just like to play it safe.

You are doing the right thing educating yourself.  Common problems are related to longevity: no implant lasts forever.  Replacement is common after a number of years, and only the exceptional patients will get away with implants that last 30 years.  Take a look at our site for a great educational article on implants: www.plasticsurgerysmg.com
