In brief: FDA POSITION

This is a long and detailed discussion.
While these implants are relatively safe, all surgery carries risksyou may also want to review the 60 page fda position statement on this subject: http://www.Fda.Gov/medicaldevices/productsandmedicalprocedures/implantsandprosthetics/breastimplants/default.Htm although saline implants are perceived to have less risks they differ for medical/cosmetic concern.
