How do I know if my implants are leaking?
Anytime someone has breast implants done, invariably we are asked how do I know if my implants are leaking? First off, it’s very rare for implants to leak so any symptoms you feel are probably not due to leaking implants. Second, it depends on whether you have saline implants or silicone implants. If a saline implant leaks, you will notice a breast asymmetry within a couple of days. Silicone leaks are harder to detect. If you notice symptoms and think your implants are leaking, visit a board certified plastic surgeon for a diagnosis.
If your breast are leaking, a number of clinical studies have shown that the effects are harmless. In the event of a leak, we would consult with you and recommend various procedures to correct the asymmetry.
