What are the risks of breast augmentation? Risk of complications after breast augmentation is slight. The complications can be grouped into two clusters: the general risks associated with all surgery and the risks that are specific to breast augmentation.

The general risks include reactions to the general anesthesia, bleeding, infection, and scar formation. The specific risks include changes in feeling or sensation of the breast, which are usually temporary, a ripple or fold of the breast implant, leaking of the implant, and tightening of scar tissue (capsular contracture).

Why can't I get rid of this "pooch"?

The term "pooch" is commonly used to describe an abdominal bulge seen below the navel. If you are asking this question, you are probably at a good weight and have tried exercise.

If you have always had weak abdominals and have never been pregnant, core muscle exercises, such as Pilates, might still work. However, if you have gone through a pregnancy or a large weight gain and loss, then these muscles have likely been stretched and are no longer connected along the center of your abdomen. A ...

However, you may find that your body has lost weight, but failed to fully contour to your new size. In fact, excess sagging skin is a common byproduct of weight loss and one no amount of physical activity can fully reduce. What’s more, when you gain weight, your abdominal muscles will separate and weaken, impacting core strength and often producing a “bloated” look that weight loss alone cannot correct.

tummy tuck is a surgical procedure in which excess skin is removed from your abdominal area. Board-...
