If you have had breast implantation surgery and are concerned about your current implants what are the signs of rupture?

Implant Rupture

A silicon implant ruptures when it splits or tears. The following are some of the signs of rupture and if you experience any of them you should seek medical help immediately:

  • Severe pain in the breast(s)
  • An intense burning sensation in the breast(s)
  • Unusual or unexpected excessive swelling in or around the breast(s)
  • Deflated breast(s)
  • Any discharge from the wound
  • Temperature above 380C or 100.40F
  • Any unexpected lumps or aches which cause concern or pain.

Should any of these symptoms occur, contact your GP or surgeon immediately.
