Most women do not experience any serious complications as a result of having Breast Augmentation surgery or receiving breast implants, but a very small number do. It is therefore important to know about the potential risks and how to care for your implants in the long-term. Although very rare, common risks associated with all surgeries are bleeding and infection. To minimize the risk of infection, you will be given antibiotics before and after surgery, and continue to take antibiotic medication for a few days afterwards. In addition, during surgery, a carefully controlled sterile environment and the No-Touch Technique are used to further minimize the risk of bacterial contamination of your wounds and breast implants. The most common source for a Breast Implant Infection is the skin or glands of the breast.

This is unlikely in most patients, although some patients have less internal support for the implant weaker scar tissue. These patients are at higher risk for implant displacement.
Underwire Bras and Your Breast Implants
Revis uses his innovative Internal Bra technique for correction of bottoming out, double bubble and synmastia also known as symmastia. Bottoming out is a specific example of a post-operative problem requiring a thorough, systematic approach and innovative surgical techniques. Revis has seen a dramatic increase in the number of patients presenting from other offices and other countries with bottoming out of one or both implants. Currently, this is the most common revision he performs, usually two to three times a week. Bottoming out is present when one or both implants are positioned too low or too lateral on the chest wall in relation to the nipple position.
Many patients would like bras that fit naturally and make it hard for people to tell that they have undergone surgery. The following are factors to consider when looking for the right bra to fit your new implants , as well as types of bras that you can try. The band size of your breasts can determine what size of bra you would need to look for. If it is an odd number, add 5. This gets you to your band size for which you can find a complementing bra.
