Breast Augmentation Infection

Overall, whether the shape is round or teardrop breast implants, the probability of breast augmentation infection occurring is quite low. Indeed, estimates suggest between 1.1% and 2.5% of breast augmentation patients are affected in this way. In the majority of these cases, the infection occurs shortly after surgery during the postoperative window. However, an infection can also develop many years after surgery and may indeed prove more serious in such instances.
