While cosmetic surgery is well marketed, the medical side-effects including silicone implant rupture often go unreported. The consequences of silicone implant rupture can be extremely serious and put the health of those who have implants at risk.
The most common Silicone implant is the Silicone breast implant, although implants can also be used in many other parts of the body for both medical and cosmetic reasons. As with any type of surgery, things can go wrong, such as problems with the anaesthetic, unexpected scarring or infections but one of the most common problems is silicone implant rupture.
When silicone implants leak into the body due to silicone implant rupture, it can be very hard to detect as the appearance of the area does not normally change. Silicone inside the body is toxic and is a carcinogenic substance (cancer causing), it is known to damage the immune system, kill cells and produce silicosis.
