Two types of breast implants are saline and silicone implants.
The saline implant is a type in which the breasts are filled with silicone shells that are filled with sterile salt water called saline.
The saline implant is suitable for women up to 18 years old to have breast augmentations and for any age for reconstruction goals.
Prospering any of these complications, either to remove or replace the implants, may need additional surgery.
If a saline breast implant ruptures, the implant will flatten and causes the affected breast to change in size and shape. Your body will absorb the leaking saline solution with risk, but you may need surgery to remove the silicone shell. A new implant can probably be inserted at the same breast if you want.
If a silicone breast implant ruptures, you probably will not notice right away or over, since any free silicone remains trapped in fibrous tissues. This type of rupture is known as a silent rupture.
Leaking silicone gel does not cause health problems such as reproductive problems, rheumatoid arthritis or cancer, but it might eventually lead to breast pain, changes in contour or shape of the breast or breast thickening.
If silicone gel leaks, your doctor will probably recommend surgical implant removal. A new Implant can be inserted at the same time if you want it.
