Breast augmentation surgery was the most common cosmetic plastic surgery procedure in the U.S. with more than 378,000 patients getting some form of breast augmentation in 2017. Infection is the leading complication that occurs after breast implantation surgery. In a global survey, infections were observed in 2%–5% of all operations in patients who underwent breast augmentation, with an incidence of 0.5%–4% for acute postoperative infections, and 0.8% for late infections (one in 10,000 cases).
