Plastic surgeons tell women that cohesive gel breast implants are safe. They won’t rupture. Or, at least, have rare incidence of rupture. And if they do rupture, the silicone will be contained within the breast. It won’t leak out.
Enough women with ‘gummy bear’ implants have experienced complications and been explanted for us to see evidence that this is not an accurate claim. I have already in a previous post shown one of the ‘new, safe cohesive gel’ implants that depicts very clearly the ruptured silicone escaping outside of the capsule around the implant. Women with these implants regularly have silicone in their lymph nodes and surrounding tissue – even without rupture.
It’s hard to fathom the motivation for plastic surgeons to perpetuate untruths that are leaving unsuspecting women at risk of serious health complications. Women have a right to be FULLY INFORMED of the risks for these dangerous devices. Health Canada designates breast implants as Class IV medical devices, their highest risk category. I’ve met thousands of women with cohesive gel implants that ruptured, causing serious health issues. Not one woman said they would have chosen to get them if they’d known the truth.
