What are the risks of breast implants?

Does anybody know what are the major risks of breast augmentation? I’ve been told that they harden over time, is this true? I’m thinking of getting them done and would like to know what i’m up against. Also, i know there’s a large market of pills that increase cup size, does anybody know which pills actually works? I would hate to spend money on placebo. Thanks in advance!

Breast Augmentation Risks And Dangers

If you are looking to enlarge your breasts, then you will want to have a breast augmentation procedure done. You have to know up front that it will not improve the symmetry of your nipples, it will not move your breasts closer together nor will it lift droopy breasts and, of course, as with ANY form of surgery, considerable risk may be involved.

Breast augmentation is done to balance the size of the breasts, improve the contour of the body or it is done as a reconstructive technique after prior surgery.

This surgery is done by implanting silicone shells behind the breast tissue. This will give the breasts a fuller and a more natural contour.

You should be aware of some of the risks and complications that are associated with breast augmentation plastic surgery. Here is a list of complications
