The Dangers of Breast Implants

Just take a look at the statistics: about 35% of women experience transplant leakage in the first three years. What does it mean? It simply means that your breasts that suddenly started to look so great deflate.

Eventually, any breast implant can leak or simply break - there is no insurance against that. The filling of the implant might be saline or gel. Saline will most probably adsorb into the body and have no negative effects. Implants that are a bit older and have silicon inside are also prone to leakage. There are several ways this might happen. If it happens so that the shell of the implant suddenly breaks, you might not even feel something is wrong, especially if a contracture scar is present. In case there is no contracture scar, the material that has been leaking accumulates in breast tissues and later can travel via your lymphatic system and get to another part of the body. So, of course, if gel from the implant managed to migrate to another area of your body, it's clear that removing all the gel along with the implant is not possible. And this creates a serious problem as the silicone that leaked might cause harm to the body tissues.

What are the most common causes for breakages and later leakages?  These include a careless move with a metal object during the operation, putting too much or too little solution into the implant (especially if there is pure saline solution inside), a contraction of the capsule, a physical trauma as a result of injury, strenuous exercise, as well as just the age factor - as the implant is getting older it's getting less and less reliable.

The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) carried out research that had the purpose of establishing the reason for the breakage of implants filled with silicone. The research involved examining women with breast implants put in before 1988 and finding out the condition of their implants. All in all, 55% of the examined women had some ruptures of implants, which means that most of them also had leakages of gel into the breast tissues. The factors that contributed to that were, among others, the age of the implants themselves, the company that manufactured them and their location. The study proved something that has been discussed for years but for some reason didn't become public until then. It also proved that no matter what material is used in your breast implant, there is always a good chance it is not going to withstand certain things.

Capsular contracture is one of the most frequent causes of problems with breast implants. The following thing happens: the scar tissue that grows around the implant as a natural reaction of your organism to the invasion of an extraneous body becomes tighter. There is nothing wrong with it as this is how the process of healing happens all the time. However, because implants are so vulnerable to any changes, sometimes another surgery might be required to eliminate the scar tissue or even replace the breast implant. There can be several of such operations - everything depends on how your body is going to take it. In another research study that was aimed at examining implants with saline solution it was discovered that the percentage of people suffering from such complications is quite big - 9% for augmentation patients and around 25-30% for reconstruction patients. This is something serious to think about before you make up your mind about having a breast implant surgically put inside your body.
