What are the associated side effects with Macrolane?
Swelling and minor pain are the most common side effects experienced at the site of injection. Rare perioperative infections within one breast is also another effect, where symptoms include tender pain and redness. Antibiotics are usually prescribed to inhibit this risk and an assessment is usually carried out before any treatment to see if the patient has any existing skin infections.
Capsule contraction around an implant can also occur, whereby the breasts will need to be compressed by hand by the Physician, which results in softer breasts. Other options are to burst thr capsule or use gel alternatives.
