Anecdotal evidence of the dangers of silicone implants has been reported for many years. Otherwise previously healthy women reporting falling ill with neurological and rheumatic problems after their procedures. While several studies indicated that there was no significant increase in the likelihood of a woman developing health problems after implant surgery, the stories persist.
Silicone implant failure is also a significant risk from their use; the enveloping membrane can rupture and release the chemicals directly into the body. There have been at least five generations of technological improvements meant to reduce the risk of “gel bleed” and implant rupture as a result.
In the wake of these concerns, saline implants have come into broad use in breast enlargement surgery. Saline is sterile, biologically concentrated salt water, and its use in breast implants goes back to the earliest days of their development. Saline implants have in the past fallen into disfavor due to a higher deflation rate than their silicone counterparts. However, technological advances in the composition of the saline implant outer membrane have reduced the likelihood of this type of failure. During the 1990s, saline largely replaced silicone as the implant of choice in the United States.
Liposuction has also been used as a non-implant method of breast enhancement since the 1970s. Fat tissue is harvested from other areas of the patient’s body and then fat grafts from that tissue inserted into the breasts via a syringe. Fat graft/liposuction technology has also evolved, but its popularity appears to be limited to treatment of post-mastectomy reconstruction and other body defects. The fat graft procedure has certain unique possibilities for complications, including necrosis, metastatic calcification, cyst development and formation of (non-cancerous) lumps.
Why Cosmetic Breast Augumentation?
Breast enlargement has been documented as offering as much as a 78% improvement in women’s libido, post operatively; the effects of the surgery on general self-esteem and self-image are likely incalculable.
The surgeon’s consideration of the suitability of a patient for the procedure is intended to include an assessment and evaluation of her mental health and reasons for undergoing the surgery. If self-esteem and sexual functioning is determined to likely be positively impacted by the procedure, only then is a surgeon supposed to agree to undertake her treatment.

Unfortunately a number of women who seek breast enhancement have some form of mental health pathology that should eliminate them from surgical enhancement. Among this segment of the female population having the surgery, suicide, alcoholism and drug abuse deaths are significantly higher than for the average woman. This unfortunate fact stresses the need for thorough screening of patients’ mental health and stability before the surgeon agrees to perform the procedure.
