Regularly breast implant checks can help you avoid complications from a range of problems. Common complications can include ruptures, leaks, capsular contracture, and a rare breast-implant-related lymphoma. Issues associated with implants can take years to show in many cases, with the potential of risk increasing over time.

For your health and well-being, it is recommended by our physicians that all women with implants conduct regular breast checks. Regular, monthly self-examinations can be performed by yourself, in the comfort of your own home. Additionally, our experts recommended annual examinations, which can be arranged with your general practitioner.
