Question: I have several questions, and in an effort to not freak out, I will try and ask them in bullet form to receive clear answers. First, my implants are saline, and were added in 1995. I am now 54. I recently had a mammogram and was told that my implants are both leaking. Here are my questions:
- Am I in danger?
- Is the leaking cause fatigue?
- Am I too told to undergo another implant surgery?
- Is silicone the natural and safe way to go now?
- Have my pectoral muscles stretched and caused the implants to move under my arms?
Please help me if you can!Answer:In an attempt to answer your questions completely, I too am going to provide bulleted answers.
- No. You are not in danger.
- No. It does not lead to fatigue.
- No. You are not too old, and assuming you are in good health, I would suggest replacing your current implants.
- Silicone implants are very safe, and hold their shape, form and volume better than saline.
- No. Your pectoral muscles are not responsible for pulling the implants under your arms.
