Saline Implant Deflation

My saline breast implant deflated, what now?

Although saline breast implants are very strong and durable breast implant rupture does happen.  This happens less commonly in silicone implants than saline.  Most saline implant ruptures happen quickly with deflation of the involved breast over a few days.  Occasionally the deflation is slower related to a slower loss of saline, such as a leak around a faulty fill valve.

The treatment of saline implant rupture is generally very straightforward.  Most patients are pleasantly surprised by the easy recovery and relatively low expense.  Implant manufacturers warranty the breast implants which can help significantly with the costs of implant replacement.
