Are Silicone Breast Implants Safe?

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


Silicone breast implants are popular with many Indianapolis-area women because of the natural look and feel they provide. However, you might be concerned about their safety. After all, weren't silicone implants banned for a while?

Fortunately, silicone breast implants are safe. There are risks associated with every surgery, but the dangers people were worried about when it came to silicone implants never materialized. Dr. Joseph Fata happily offers silicone implants as one of your breast augmentation options.

It is the case that silicone implants were taken off the market for a little more than a decade starting in the early 90's. There was some fear that ruptured silicone implants and leaking silicone gel presented a danger to the tissue and immune systems of women.

As a result, the FDA took silicone implants off the market to study the issue. And those studies found no such danger. Silicone breast implants were once again approved for use in women over the age of 22.
