Are Silicone Breast Implants Safe?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


There was a lot of scaremongering about silicone breast implants in the 90’s. The implants were understandably taken off the market while doctors studied the possibility that they harmed the immune system. But media reports focused exclusively on the possible danger, and there was not nearly as much coverage when studies found no link between silicone breast implants and auto-immune diseases.

Now, silicone implants are available for women in Denver and across the country. When choosing between saline and silicone breast implants, you should do so knowing that silicone implants are quite safe.

Silicone breast implants are more advanced than ever. And when placed by one of our practice’s experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons, the implants are exceptionally safe.

Because silicone implants keep their shape in the (unlikely) event of a rupture, it’s a good idea to periodically have the implant examined to ensure its structural integrity is still intact. If this is a concern for you, we can discuss saline implants.

But you should make your decision confident in the safety and effectiveness of silicone breast implants.
