Breast Implants Will Eventually Break Most implants last 7 to12 years, but some break during the first few months or years, while others last more than 15 years. Finding by a FDA study: Most women had at least one broken implant within 11 years and the likelihood of rupture increases every year. The broken implants have numerous complications on women’s bodies and the only way to avoid these complications is to remove them. Silicone gel in implants can break down to liquid silicone at normal body temperatures and leakage and migration from implants to the lymph nodes and other organs. Liquid silicone can migrate to the lungs, liver, or other organs.

What if a woman needs to get her implants removed? As part of the removal surgery, women often lose breast tissue. The resulting removal surgery may be similar to a mastectomy. Removal can be much more complicated and expensive than the original surgery. After Removal
Auto-immune diseases and Cancer. A study of women who had silicone gel breast implants for at least seven years found that those with leaking implants were significantly more likely to report fibromyalgia, a painful autoimmune disease. The risk of fibromyalgia remained even after statistically controlling for patient's age, implant age, and implant manufacturer. These researchers also found that women with leaking silicone implants were significantly more likely to report a diagnosis of at least one of the following painful and debilitating diseases: dermatomyositis, polymyositis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, mixed connective-tissue disease, pulmonary fibrosis, eosinophilic fasciitis, and polymyalgia. Breast Implants Cause Diseases
Motherhood: Mothers with any kind of breast surgery, including breast implant surgery, are at least three times as likely to have an inadequate milk supply for breastfeeding. In addition, it is found that the offspring born and breastfed after the mother had breast implants had higher levels of a toxic form of platinum in their blood than offspring born before the breast implants. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMi5NDcc1xE&feature=related Disrupting women’s sexual Lives and their Motherhood Sexual lives: In fact, women losing their nipple sensitivity and having painfully sensitive nipples are common local complications of such surgery. Furthermore, some women are dissatisfied with the cosmetic results of breast implants, because their breasts look or feel unnatural or asymmetrical, or they can hear a "sloshing sound" from saline-filled implants. Problems like these can interfere with sexual intimacy.
Breast surgery risks outweigh the benefits , and it can destroy or change women’s lives for the worse. Consequently, authorities’ responsibilities are to protect these women from being involved in such surgeries and to distribute the awareness among the women to improve their understanding and change their way of thinking about these kinds of surgeries.
