What Does It Mean When A Breast Implant Ruptures?


The elastomer envelope surrounding a silicone gel breast implant sometimes fails, resulting in silicone coming into contact with other areas of the body. It is only considered a rupture if there is an actual tear in the envelope. A gel bleed, or slow leak of silicone gel, is not considered a rupture.
