In brief: Many...

There are numerous pros/cons associated with any type of breast surgery.
Any list you obtain here will be incomplete. Best to consider your motivation carefully and seek consultation with board certified plastic surgeons who can detail the pros/cons associated with this surgery for you specifically. A lot of information will also be available on individual plastic surgeons' websites as well.

In brief: Positive vs Negative

There are many potential negatives but the positives outweigh the negatives and include: infection, hematoma, wound breakdown, asymmetry, implant exposure/extrusion/rupture overcorrection/undercorrection, contour irregularity, capsular contracture, distortion with muscular contraction, interference with oncologic evaluation of the breast, interference with nipple sensation, nursing or aging, etc.

In brief: Risk Benefit

It is like any elective operation there are risks and benefits.
You just need to understand what those are for any procedure you are interested in. The major benefit is enlarging the breast volume and affecting the shape. The cons are like most surgery bleeding, infection, scarring, capsular contracture, asymmetry, implant rupture. Seek consultation with board certified Plastic Surgeon
