Do women with silicon breasts have sensesivity to touch?

Possible. If someone is very flat and gets a large implant, the nerves get stretched for sometime and the nipple sensation may be more or less for sometimes after surgery, but it usually comes back to normal in a few months.
Not related. While patients may experience varying degrees of hypersensitivity , particularly of the nipple in the immediate post operative period, hypersensitivity to touch should not be related to the presence of the implant unless complicated by migration into the axilla.

How safe are silicon breast implants?

Debatable. Without sounding like a politician it really depends upon what you mean by "safe." silicone gel implants leak. They all leak minute amounts of silicone into your body. Your body may respond to this by producing a scar capsule around it that is much thicker than would be formed with a saline implant. This happens over years and may lead to the need for more surgery.

Safe, I believe. This topic has been deabted and there are many stories on the internet about silicone implants and the lawsuits of the early 1990's. I believe, based on the information the fda has reviewed, that silicone implants are safe and would have no problem if my wife, mother or sister wanted to have silicone implants. Read more...
Very. The breast implant is one of the most well-studied medical devices on the planet. The information presented to the fda after years of research have shown them to be safe and effective. Silicone gel implants may become firm over time but have not been shown to cause cancer or other health problems. I would have no problem using these devices on any of my family or friends at this time. Read more...
Safe. Breast implants are the most studied thing we surgically place in a body today. The institute of medicine study, and now over 400 peer reviewed studies show that silicone implants are safe. If they were not, we would not have them in the office. They are not permanent devices. Ask your local board certified plastic surgeon. They should be able to answer your questions. http://www.jjrothmd.com. Read more...

I was wondering what are the long term dangers of silicon breast implants?

Rupture. The most common risk with silicone implants that are not replaced would be rupture. Ruptured implants can lead to capsular contracture and spread of the silicone into the breast tissue and possibly lymph nodes. Silicone implants should be replaced at around the ten year mark as recommended by the manufacturers. Read more...

If you were to have silicon breast implants and they started leaking how fast would you need to have them removed?

When you want. This is an elective operation --meaning when you want to have it done. There is no evidence that the leaking silicone is dangerous or harmful, despite previous studies in the 1980s and 1990s suggesting that it was. However, it is easier for your surgeon to get the leaking silicone out of your tissues if there is less of it, so sooner is probably better, but it is not an emergency! Read more...
As soon as safe. This is not an emergency but removal is genrally recommended when it is recognized. However, due to the current form stage implants it may be difficult to assess for rupture based on physical exam alone (called silent rupture) which gas prompted the fda to recommend periodic MRI testing at 3 years and ever 2 years thereafter to screen for implant rupture.

Soon. Although not an emergency, i think that it is best to remove free silicone as soon as safely possible. Although there are no specific guidelines, i suggest my patients try to do so within the first month after diagnosis. Best wishes. Read more...
