Breast Implant Controversies

Breast implants are thin-walled containers made of hard silicone plastic that are filled with saline (salt water) or silicone gel. They have been in use for 30 years and have an excellent safety record. The Institute of Medicine's recent review of breast implants and their safety found saline and silicone gel implants to be similar. Both types of implants were associated with local complications (rupture, scar formation called capsular contracture, and infection) but not with systemic complications as once feared. The decision to use saline implants versus silicone implants is often patient driven or determined by surgeon's preference.
