There has also always been a concern that breast implants could leak or cause a negative reaction. Although the technology has become much safer since it was first introduced, putting any foreign material in your body is always a risk. Certain types of implants have even been related to rare cancers.
Recent advancements in ‘fat grafting’ have also provided women with an alternative to the traditional implant if they are looking for a small enhancement, rather than a huge augmentation. It is also possible for doctors to perform a ‘breast lift’ rather than adding any material to the area at all.
