WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Women who get silicone breast implants are likely to need additional surgery within 10 years to address complications such as rupturing of the device, U.S. health regulators said on Wednesday.

The Food and Drug Administration will work to revise safety labels for silicone breast implants after reviewing data from several long-term studies, which also showed that the products had a small link to a rare form of cancer.

This is old news. Every woman I have ever known who has had breast implants has had to go back for additional surguries to fix things later. Usually what has happened is that scar tissue forms and the breasts get these hard painful lumps and places around them. Two of the women I have known paid more for the follow-up surgeries than the actual breast implants themselves.

doctors know that when a woman goes in for breast implants he's got a patient for life.

It really depends. There are those with saline implants and I don't think your OP applies to those women.

It's the same with saline implants. Two girlfriends I knew when I lived in California had the saline implants. One had the hardening issues plus she had lost the feeling in her left nipple, her right was fine. The other had a weird wrinkling thing that required more surgery to fix. She also had these weird sharp pains in her breast. She'd had her implants for 5 years and was considering getting them removed rather than getting the surgery to fix the wrinkles because she was pretty sure the sharp pains were due to the implants, since she'd never had them previously.

I don't think it matters what the implant is made of. Regardless of what it is, you're putting something foreign into your body, but cutting your body open and stitching back up. It's what's going on around the implant that seems to cause most of the problems, relating to how the body tries to heal itself. As well as things like the implants themselves leaking or the body rejecting them and whatnot.

Your last paragraph says it all.

Agreed. Any implant is bound to decay inside the body if not removed every so often, or permanently.

Implants generally last 10-15 years, some longer. They don't "decay" I have never heard that, its more likely rupture or other issues.

Hey ... maybe you should hear from someone who actually has implants and absolutely no problems at all! Mine have been here more than half of my life and they are MINE ... I barely remember not having them. They are perfect and have been part of me for 30 years! NO wrinkles, no scars, and men I have been with don't even know they are not mine ... they love them. They don't fall under my arm pits when I sleep and aren't flabby.

Now you have a positive report from someone in the know.

Oh ****?! They flap that far eventually? Dear god....thats comical and sounds slightly dangerous!

They need to have a method that just transplants your own breast tissue like how they do skin grafts. I know they have fat injections but fat is shapeless.
