Implant ruptures can occur for a variety of reasons. In some cases, complications like capsular contracture can lead to an implant rupture. Other times, the issue is simply the result of wear and tear. Sometimes the cause of the rupture cannot be found. How can you decrease your odds of a rupture?
The type of implant you choose is an important factor. Saline-filled implants are more prone to rupturing than silicone implants.
Patients who receive cohesive implants made from silicone gel have an even smaller chance of experiencing a rupture. This is because the silicone gel retains its shape even if the outer shell has been damaged.
At our center for cosmetic surgery, we offer highly cohesive silicone gel breast implants. If you are interested in breast augmentation and would like to know more about these amazing cohesive implants, contact our office to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Louis Strock.
