Several types of breast implants are used around the world. Unfortunately, all implants are susceptible to rupture. Some of the most common types of breast implant include the following:

Saline Rupture Patients presenting with rupture of their saline implants can present with pain to the breast, potential permanent changes in nipple sensitivity, implant leakage leading to loss of upper pole fullness of the breast.
Silicone Rupture Patients present to my office weekly with ruptured silicone implants. They normally present with similar symptoms. Symptoms can include pain, swelling, redness or even tingling of the breasts.
Gummy Bear Implants Gummy bear implants, also referred to as the 410 cohesive silicone gel implants, anatomical, textured, Natrelle Allergan implants. These are highly cohesive silicone gel implants.
Polyurethane Implants Recently, I had the opportunity to reconstruct a patient that presented from Romania with ruptured Polytech Silimed Europe GMBH with micro polyurethane surface MPS mammary implants that were used in the United Kingdom.
Dow Corning Silicone Implant Dow Corning implants were originated in the 1940’s by Dow Corning Chemical Company. The implants were found at the University of California Los Angeles in 1995 that the silicone could be expected to be a bioactive material.
Becker Implants The Becker implants were created by Dr. Hilton Becker. These implants were useful as a double lumen adjustable implant. In order to combine both advantages of saline and silicone gel.

Dr. Linder is the best implant surgeon EVER, I HIGHLY recommend him as he’s saved my breast countless times and I only trust his BEAUTIFUL WORK.
