How Do U Prevent Infection After Aug & Lift?Answr:
Infection after Breast implant surgery is very low, even with a lift...and even with the peri-areolar approach. But the incision can get a little "funky" as it heals, kind of puckery and irregular at first and can even drain more during this period...So infection requiring removal of the implant...very rare...
Breast augmentation and lift
Infection can happen with any procedure. Nipple border approach has not been shown to cause more problems than any other approaches.
