In brief: 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. The newer silicone implants are safer, but difficult to tell if they are leaking. The only way to diagnose leaking silicone implants now is with an mri.
