Breast Implant Safety
Breast implants are quite safe. However, as the patient, you must realize there are some small risks regarding breast implants. They can rupture and require replacement. They can require different surgery over time and additional expenses over time. It is unlikely that they will ever harm you in any way as long as they were managed and cared for annularly by your physician your gynecologist or your plastic surgeon.
