How Can You Tell If Your Breast Implants Are Leaking?
Plastic surgeons familiar with breast implants may only detect about 30% of ruptures occurring in breast implants, while an MRI can detect around 80% or more of ruptures or leaks in implants. Symptoms of a leaking implant may include:
- Hard knots or lumps around the implant, surgical site, or armpit
- Deformity of the breast
- Change in shape or loss of size
- Pain or burning
- Tingling or swelling
- Hardening of the breast
