Breast implants have been associated with a range of problems – including rupture, leak, capsular contracture and a rare breast-implant-related lymphoma.
A regular check is now available and is backed by research work published by Macquarie University. The ground breaking research has shown that low-grade infection around breast implants is one of the major causes of complications.
Most women were probably followed up by their surgeon for a few years afterwards, and then not at all. It is important to have lifelong follow-ups as problems can occur many years after surgery – including a rare implant-associated lymphoma.
The risk of breast implant rupture increases with time. The latest evidence suggests that women with breast implants should receive regular lifelong check-ups which is backed by research work published by Macquarie University.
The ground-breaking research has shown that low-grade infection around breast implants is one of the major causes of complications. Professors Anand Deva and Karen Vickery developed a 14-Point Plan to reduce the risk of implant contamination.
Professor Anand Deva was involved in earlier experimental research that demonstrated the causal link between sub-clinical infection, biofilm formation and capsular contracture.
