It's not unlike having a large bruise in your breast. The mass it forms is not cancerous, but it can sometimes lead to inflammation, fever, skin discoloration, and may leave behind scar tissue that mimics the shape of a breast tumor. A breast hematoma can happen to anyone regardless of age or menopausal status. It may be caused by trauma, or procedures like a breast biopsy or breast surgery.

The following is a list of local complications and adverse outcomes that occur in at least 1 percent of breast implant patients at any time. You may need non-surgical treatments or additional surgeries to treat any of these, and you should discuss any complication and necessary treatment with your doctor. These complications are listed alphabetically, not in order of how often they occur. A complete list of complications, as well as information on rates for those complications can be found in the patient labeling for the approved breast implants, Labeling for Approved Breast Implants. Breast Implants are not considered lifetime devices. The longer people have them, the greater the chances are that they will develop complications, some of which will require more surgery.
