Large breasts, which many women dream of and decide on an operation to increase it, can greatly complicate life. It can look unnatural, cause discomfort and pain, plastic surgeon Sergei Sviridov warned.
“Implants that are disproportionate to the size of the body can cause discomfort and even pain in the chest area. This occurs when the size of the implant is larger than the size of its own tissues and the pocket. Then the implant exerts pressure on the surrounding tissues,” told “Gazete.ru” Sviridov.
He added that large implants can also be prone to rupture. In addition, they can sink over time, spoiling the shape of the breast. Another danger is squeezing the mammary glands, which makes breastfeeding impossible. The formation of milk is disturbed, the output through the milk ducts can be completely blocked, provoking an inflammatory disease (mastitis). Implants that are too large can also provoke thinning of tissues and the formation of pressure sores on the lower slope of the mammary glands.
