SUBJECT: Von Willebrand TYPE 1 & Breast Augmentation Risks

Are we at greater risk for getting infection more than the normal person since we have a blood disorder?

What complications can occur for people with blood disorders for breast augmentation?

    The main risk with this blood disorder is not infection, but bleeding. One is at higher risk for a bleeding complication, because the blood does not clot properly. It is best to have a consultation with a hematologist prior to any elective surgery to discuss the risks and how to prevent them (or to not have the surgery at all).
