Mystifying Implants: Discovering the Strength of Gel-filled Silicone

By Jack Sebastian Subscribe to RSS | May 3rd 2012 | Views:

You might be among many people who think California is the so-called plastic surgery capital in the U.S. According to the Men’s Health Magazine’s recent report, it is. San Francisco ranks number one, with Sacramento at number three and San Diego at number six. Surprisingly, though, California ranks fifth in terms of most plastic surgeons per capital.

Women who consider breast implants have many questions in mind. One of them pertains to how durable or strong the implants will be. Women wish to know how long the implants will last and if these will rupture under certain conditions.

Implants used today are made of gel-filled silicone. This type of implant is known to break or rupture very rarely. When it does, no long-term effect on the patient’s body is observed. In spite of gel-filled silicone’s seeming durability, manufacturers and medical professionals continue to work on further strengthening breast implants of this material. There are anecdotes on the durability of gel-filled silicone breast implants. Here are some.

A 2010 story in the Los Angeles Times talks about a woman whose breast implants saved her life from a gunman. The doctor who examined the implants reported that the implants absorbed much of the bullet’s impact and limited most of the damage to the breast. The bullet’s fragments were about millimeters from her heart and her vital organs. While an LAPD firearms instructor suggests it’s possible the implant interrupted the bullet’s velocity, that’s not to say breast implants can act as bullet-proof vests. Nonetheless, the silicone was strong enough to withstand the force of the speeding bullet.

In another online report, a 24-year old Bulgarian woman came out of a head-on collision unscathed…minus her breast implants. The two cars supposedly crashed beyond recognition, but the implants virtually acted as her airbags and cushioned the impact for her. The force of the impact did deflate her breast implants, but that much force was exactly what it took to destroy the implants. Verily, anecdotes as these shed some light on how durable gel-filled silicone can be, making a strong case before women considering breast augmentation San Francisco surgeons can provide.

In the U.S., about two million women have breast implants, with about 250,000 having breast augmentation Bay Area surgeons give yearly. Most women’s breasts increase by about two cup sizes after receiving implants.

The decision to undergo breast augmentation San Francisco surgeons provide is not easy to make. It has to start with an unwavering desire to know every bit of information about the procedure, such as, in this case, its durability. Read more about breast implants on and
