ABC News Video on Breast Augmentation, Silicone Breast Implants, Capsular Contracture

Aug 6, 2011 by

Just so you know that the Furry Brazilian doesn’t invent complications or statics, have a watch of this:

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/fda-silicone-implants-safe/story?id=13903368

The Furry Brazilian notes:

  1. Silicone implants are safe- hooray! That is something the rest of the world knew for years! There is a nice look at cohesive silicone gel in the video.
  2. Capsular Contracture is being discussed- this is great news as capsular contracture is the leading cause of re-operations following breast augmentation when smooth or textured implants are used. This should be discussed more and more, every woman considering breast augmentation should be researching capsular contracture and have a full understanding of capsular contracture.
  3. Re-operation rate following breast augmentation is mentioned- yeah! The public should know the FDA suggests that 20% of women will need their smooth or textured breast implants replaced within 8-10 years of having a breast augmentation.

Let’s keep the discussions coming, let’s add Polyurethane implants to the discussion. Polyurethane implants are in the same “place” that silicone breast implants were- being used all over the world but not in the USA.
