How safe is breast augmentation surgery?Nate Deisler
Both saline and silicone breast implants are FDA approved and considered safe for breast augmentation procedures. Still, the decision to have breast augmentation surgery is personal, so you will have to weigh the benefits with the risks. If you’re a smoker, your surgeon might recommend that you stop at least during the time of your procedure, because it can impede healing. You should also know that Hancock Regional Hospital has been rated one of the safest hospitals in America by The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit health care watchdog organization; and was named the safest hospital in Indiana on the Lown Institute Hospital Index.
