What are possible side effects and complications of breast reconstruction?

Some of the possible side effects include infection; blood clots; bleeding; wound healing problems; problems associated with anesthesia; extreme tiredness; fluid build-up in the breast or the donor site; breast pain; changes in breast sensation; breasts that aren’t symmetrical; implant rupture or deflation; increased risk of revision surgery to replace or remove the implants; and the formation of scar tissue that affects the way your new breast looks.
