US scientists have claimed that secondhand smokers are at higher risk of Breast Cancer. Earlier, their research also led to them to the conclusion that young women smokers are more likely to get addicted to smoking than young men.

Breast Cancer is the number one cancer among women and the count of its victim are rising very rapidly. This is for the first time that passive smoking has been directly linked with some sort of cancer. World Health Organization links smoking with 25 Cancers: Some of these cancers are : uterine, kidneys, cervix, pancreas, head and neck...

In this article I would like to discuss natural herbal breast supplements provided by Breast Actives. The field of natural herbal breast supplements has come a long way in the past few years with Breast Actives leading the way in research and technology. Along with their top-tier research and development program in this field, Breast Actives continues to give women a choice over dangerous surgical procedures that will help them enhance their breasts naturally.

With so many dangers to surgical breast enhancement it's no wonder that so many women these days are leaning towards herbal and natural enhancement. We've all heard the horror stories of bad surgeries ranging from implants popping after surgery, scars that do not fade, repeat surgeries needed are just a few of the complications that can arise from surgical breast enhancement. Some women have tried dangerous, unnatural procedures and treatments to enhance their breasts - often not getting the results they wanted and exposing themselves to potentially dangerous consequences.

So now we come to the main question why would you want to use breast actives? There's a pretty simple answer to that. They have tested and proven that natural and herbal enhancement works. If you need more proof you can check on CNN news, Montel Williams show, Dateline, 20/20. All have aired segments on this subject and all have shown that it does work. Why pay thousands and chance a complicated surgery when you can use something that's proven to work safe and naturally.

Breast Surgery Complications

Breast Surgery Complications

First and foremost there could be an allergic reaction to the anesthetic. General is considered to be more risky yet any anesthetic could bring on a negative reaction. Although extremely rare, it is possible to bleed post-operatively resulting in another surgery to control and drain the collected blood. Another possibility is hematoma (a collection of clotted blood), seroma (a collection of the watery portion of the blood) and thrombosis (abnormal clotting).

Loss of sensitivity is common, although temporary. Permanent sensation loss in the areola (nipple) area or breasts, in general, can and may happen. There is also a risk of excessive scarring or inner scar tissue. Also, you must have more views (films) taken when having a mammogram if you have breast implants -- especially overs.

There is also a risk of calcifications -- especially when there is a definite, thick capsule around the implant. And galactorrhea, which is when you start producing breast milk, is also a complication. This is usually remedied on its own and may stop spontaneously although some cases may need medication or implant removal. Although very rare, it is worth mentioning, full disclosure is the key to an informed consent.

Breast tissue atrophy (loss, shrinking) is a possibility. According to the FDA, "the pressure of the breast implant may cause the breast tissue to thin and shrink. This can occur while implants are still in place or following implant removal without replacement".

Necrosis (death) of the breast tissue, breast envelope and or incision line can happen. Although extremely rare. The chances of necrosis are increased after radioactive/chemotherapy treatment, if you smoke and have poor circulation, or have temperatetherapy or cryotherapy post-operatively.

Extrusion is also an extremely rare occurrence but a scary possibility. Extrusion of the implant is where your body rejects the prosthesis and pushes it out of the skin, like when a piercing is pushed out or like when a thorn or splinter is pushed from the body. Then the implant may become visible under the skin and must be removed before it breaks through resulting in possibly an infection and definite major scarring.

Infection: You could develop a post-operative infection and need to have the implant removed, the infection dealt with and still have to wait for several months before an additional surgery can be performed to re-implant. Infections usually occur with the first 4 to 6 weeks. Some possible infections and a more common one being Staphylococcus, or simply Staph.
