In brief: Surgical risks

Risks of surgery include bleeding, infection, scars, fluid collections, and asymmetry.
Implant related complications include implant failure or rupture, implant exposure, malposition, and capsular contracture. Capsular contracture is the formation of firm scar tissue around the implant resulting in asymmetry, implant deformation, visibility of the implant, and pain in very severe cases.

In brief: Varies per individua

There can be some loss of superficial sensation around nipples.
There can be usual complications that are associated like with any other surgery. Because elective, need to make sure otherwise healthy and no contraindications to surgery.
