Downsides of Breast Augmentation |

Dr. Daniel Calva, Plastic Surgeon at Baptist Health South Florida, explains there are complications that can happen from some implants, such as pain when the muscle is stretching; because of this, the nerves can be trapped; there is also animation, which means the implant moves as you are moving.

He also says there could be capsular contracture; it happens when the scar tissue around that implant becomes thicker and it starts to contract and it is very common; 30% of women that get implants can get it.
