According to a June 2011 report from the United StatesS. The United States Food and Drug Administration estimates that about 5 million to 10 million women worldwide have breast implants. These devices are used to increase breast tissue after cosmetic or cancer surgery, filling with saline or silicone gel. Breast implants may break due to age, trauma, medical procedures, or other reasons. The symptoms and signs of leakage of Vivo implants vary depending on the type of equipment. Leaking implants usually need to be removed and replaced if needed. Loss of volume- The filled implant contains sterile saline. If this type of implant breaks, the liquid leaks out of the shell and is absorbed into the body. You will not have symptoms of leakage, but the implants will deflate and your breasts will lose volume. The area around the deflated implant will usually harden and contract over time, a condition called contracture contraction unless your surgeon removes the affected implant within the first 2 to 3 weeks The volume will also be lost if the silicone implants break and form a small leak outside the shell. Because the contents of the silicone gel -- Filled implants are thicker than fluid in saline Filled implant, it may not leak outside the torn housing. This leak is called silent rupture and is not obvious to the woman or her doctor. On the other hand, if silicone leaks outside the shell, you may notice that due to the formation of scar tissue or contracture contraction, the size or shape of the breast is deformed. When the silicone implant breaks and leaks outside the shell, you may notice changes in the tissue around the implant. Your skin may look red and inflamed, and your breasts may look swollen. You may feel a little liquid. A lump filled near the implant or notice discomfort on the leaking side shoulder or arm. Your breasts may feel numb, or you may experience tingling, burning or pain in the affected areas. Diagnostic image if your doctor suspects a silent rupture of silicone gel Filled implants, imaging can help diagnose. According to a report published in European Radiology in July 2008, breast magnetic resonance imaging can identify implant rupture in up to 90% of cases. \"In contrast, a breast X-ray can only identify an implant that breaks in about 25% of the time. Silicone and medical conditions use of silicone gel The filling of implants has raised concerns that leakage may lead to serious medical conditions such as hard swelling, fibromyalgia, and other mucosal tissue diseases. In fact, due to safety concerns, the FDA removed these devices from the market in February 1992. Two new types of silicone- The filling implant was approved in 2006. After extensive review of studies related to potential complications of silicone gel The FDA concluded in 2011 that these devices had nothing to do with the development of breast cancer, conjoined disease or fertility and pregnancy issues.
