Why do Implants fail?
Many don’t. A tiny portion of them develops a tear or a hole. This can be from injury to the shell (fatigue or trauma of the shell). The shell weakens from formed creases. How do you know if your implant has failed? The main difference is between silicone and saline implants. If you have a saline implant, your implant will deflate, and your breast will lose volume. It can be days or weeks, depending on the size and placement of the leak, but you will eventually notice. If the implant is Silicone, it’s hard to determine the leak. A silent rapture is when silicone gel is coming out, but due to his cohesive nature, silicone will stay captured within the capsule!
Mammograms and ultrasound can help, but unless the silicone is outside the capsule, it may stay unnoticed. A ruptured silicone implant usually changes shape and gets firmer, so they are often not silent raptures. If silicone gel is migrated outside the capsule, it should be removed with the tissue it has scarred. The saline implant is often removed and replaced.
If the Implant isn’t leaking, why should I get it replaced?
There are many reasons. Some women decide, as they get older they want smaller implants. Sometimes, their breasts become larger with perimenopausal changes. Larger breast can cause neck and shoulder pain, and women feel like they look heavy. Many women fell their breasts becoming saggy as they age, so they want a smaller size. Gravity and weight of the implant also contribute to this.
