Silicone breast implants and saline implants alike can have side effects for a woman's health after surgery for breast augmentation. Natural remedies can be applied at home to reduce post-surgical symptoms of pain, promote healing, and hopefully help prevent other long-term side-effects of an otherwise successful "boob job".
As with all surgeries, post-surgical infections, scarring, bleeding, and poor surgical results are possible. Additionally and over the long-term breast implants can suffer or cause ruptures, misplacement, tissue death, sensory impairments, and perhaps even cancer.
