At SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, under the direction of acclaimed board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi, our team is committed to upholding the highest standards of breast augmentation safety to ensure each patient’s health, happiness, and comfort.

Are breast implants safe?

Both saline and silicone gel breast implants are FDA approved and widely considered exceptionally safe by surgeons and patients alike. Millions of women undergo breast augmentation with implants each year, and the vast majority of patients experience no serious or long-term complications. However, like all surgical procedures, there are some risks associated with breast augmentation surgery. These may include:

  • Infection
  • Implant rupture
  • Capsular contracture
  • Implant displacement
  • Bottoming out
  • Breast asymmetry
  • Unexpected cosmetic outcome
  • Breast implant illness

Fortunately, most of these side effects are rare, can be corrected with breast revision surgery, and do not pose any long-term problems.

What is breast implant illness?

Breast implant illness (BII) is a rare and somewhat vague condition characterized by the presence of symptoms that can’t be linked to any other process. The range and severity of BII symptoms can vary widely from patient to patient and may include:

  • Muscle aches
  • Swelling
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Brain fog
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Swelling
  • Weight gain or loss

As part of SSK Plastic Surgery’s pledge to breast implant safety, Dr. Kelishadi is proud to offer a lifetime guarantee for patients who may develop symptoms of breast implant illness. With this guarantee, Dr. Kelishadi is often able to remove the patient’s breast implants free of charge, with the exception of anesthesia and other facility fees, if applicable.
