What are the long term dangers of silicon implants?

What are the long term dangers of silicon implants?

Minimal: At this point in time we do not think silicone causes systemic illnesses. It can cause local problems at the site, which is why one should never have it injected.

In fact, skin keratinization is the normal protective response to physical stimulation over time, which occurs in palms and soles. Before proceeding with such, check out why you... ...Read more
