Silicone breast implants are pre-filled with cohesive silicone gel — a thick, sticky fluid that closely mimics the feel of human fat. Silicone breast implants have been in use for more than 25 years in over 60 countries.
Long-term rupture rates for silicone breast implants have been rigorously tested over the years. To assess the long-term safety of silicone breast implants, Allergan conducted extensive clinical studies both in the United States and in Europe.
These studies show that silicone implants have low long-term rupture rates. In fact, the results of the European research found that after 11 years, 92% of implants were still intact.
