That defeats the objective of the surgery in the first place.

Breast augmentation mistakes: When to take action

Having breast augmentation surgery is becoming an increasingly popular choice for women. It can be regarded as an empowering surgery because it can result in a massive change in self-esteem, and banish many insecurities that you once held.

If you're going in for surgery and you're worried that the medical team may make a mistake, you should know that there are things you can do to reduce the risk. You're not obligated to do this, and you do deserve a high level of care regardless, but they can still help.

What objects do surgeons forget inside the body most often?

You get out of surgery, and you're in a lot of pain. You assume it's just the normal healing process at first, but the pain doesn't go away. You go back in and find out that the surgeon actually left a foreign object inside your body before stitching you back up.
