RISKS AND SAFETY

The decision to have breast reconstruction is extremely personal. You will have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable. You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks and potential complications.
The risk Include: 
Anesthesia risks
Bleeding (hematoma)
Flap surgery includes the risk of partial or complete loss of the flap and a loss of sensation at both the donor and reconstruction site
Infection
Breast asymmetry
Breast contour and shape irregularities
Changes in nipple or breast sensation, which may be temporary or permanent 
Poor wound healing
Persistent pain
Possibility of revision surgery
The use of implant carries the risk of breast firmness (capsular contracture) and implant rupture
Unfavorable scarring
Fat transfers risk include cysts, infection, microcalcification, necrosis (death of fat cells) and the possibility that some of the transferred fat cells will leave the breast area

These risks and other will be fully disclosed prior to your consent.

It is more important that you address all of your questions directly with your plastic surgeon.
