Breast augmentation using silicone implants is the most common cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedure.
Reported prevalence of breast implants complications are around 20%.
They are clasified by time of onset in acute and chronic,
if they appear after a year from the date of surgery.
Late complications include mainly capsular contracture and implant failure; late seromas,
spontaneous hematoma and implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma,
are also described,
but are very rare.
