BREAST IMPLANT COMPLICATION RATES

BREAST IMPLANT COMPLICATION RATES - MANUFACTURER DATA

In October 2021, the FDA required all breast implant manufacturers to provide a patient checklist that includes their complication rates. This chart that we created shows just a few of the most common complications from the manufacturer checklists and the SSED’s (FDA Summary of Safety and Effectiveness Data).


➡️ High adverse events overall

➡️ High rupture and deflation rates

➡️ High rates of re-operation.


This should be discussed with every patient who is considering breast implants for augmentation or breast reconstruction. Most patients and even many physicians are unaware. Informed consent is a discussion, a process in which the physician should share the risks and benefits with patients. Patients deserve to have this information to make an educated and informed decision.
