History of Silicone Breast Implants
In 1992, the FDA approved an adjunct study protocol for silicone gel-filled breast implants for reconstruction and revision patients. Three years later in 1995, the major manufacturer of silicone and other implants, Dow Corning Corp. faced 19,000 lawsuits for defective breast implants, forcing the company to file bankruptcy.
About Siicone Breast Implants
Silicone gel-filled breast implants have a silicone outer shell that is filled with silicone gel. They come in different sizes and have either smooth or textured shells. Silicone gel-filled breast implants were approved for breast augmentation in women age 22 or older and for breast reconstruction in women of any age. They are also used in revision surgeries, which correct or improve the result of an original surgery. However what appeared to be beneficial to woman turned out to be one of the biggest disasters in medical implant History. Research has shown that breast implants have caused woman to suffer life-threatening side effects, including pain and cancer.

Medical Studies have shown that there is probably nothing that you can place in the human body that the body will not attempt to break down. Silicone implants in the body are broken down over time through a lipolysis reaction. Most silicone-filled breast implants leak or rupture within 8 to 15 years.
Breast Implant Diseases and Complications
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recently warned that both silicone and saline breast implants may be associated with anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a rare form of cancer. thousands of women who have had their implants for one or two decades now are seeking medical help for symptoms which resemble arthritis, fibromyalgia, scleroderma, connective tissue disorders, and/or immune dysfunction and seem to be associated with their breast implants.

FDA and Effects of Silicone breast implants on Children
At this time, it is not known if a small amount of silicone may pass through from the breast implant silicone shell into breast milk during breastfeeding. Although there are currently no established methods for accurately detecting silicone levels in breast milk, a study measuring silicon (one component in silicone) levels did not indicate higher levels in breast milk from women with silicone gel-filled implants when compared to women without implants.
In addition, concerns have been raised regarding potential damaging effects on children born to mothers with implants. Two studies in humans have found no increased risk of birth defects in children born to mothers who have had breast implant surgery. Although low birth weight, was reported in a third study, other factors (for example, lower pre-pregnancy weight) may explain this finding.
