Silicone Gel Breast Implant Resource Center

Welcome to Our Silicone-Gel Breast Implants Resource Center!

The new silicone gel breast implants have become the most popular type of breast implant since their approval in 2006 by the FDA. We have received a lot of questions and had a lot of discussion on silicone breast implants on our discussion boards over the last 2 years. We put this resource center together to try to help you understand the issues around silicone gel breast implants and help you to choose whether silicone or saline breast implants are right for you.

Information on silicone gel breast implants can be overwhelming unless you know what to look for. We have tried to make it easy for you right here by giving you quick access to the most important and popular topics related to silicone gel breast implants. Select one of the links below to get started. If you are just starting your search, we suggest the first link, Silicone Breast Implants vs. Saline Breast Implants. This is a short article that will give you a high level overview on the differences between the two. It also provides a chart that summarizes the differences in a short, easily readable form. It contains links to some of the follow-on topics that might also be of interest.

Please also read the topic, Long-term Care of Silicone Breast Implants. This will give you a very nice overview of the FDA's recommended care and how those recommendations may differ from that of your plastic surgeon and why. It talks about rupture rates, MRI screenings and special circumstances. It's truly worth reading.

These are our most popular topics, but make sure to let us know if there are other topics you think should be in this silicone gel resource center. Happy reading!
