Are Silicone Implants Safe? (Surgical Video Explains)
There is a misconception that silicone implants aren’t safe. The truth is, silicone implants were FDA approved in 2006 after extensive studies were conducted about their safety. Dr. Hochstein provides an insider’s look during a breast augmentation surgery explaining that once an implant loses its blood supply, it changes to a dingy, yellow color. As long as the implant is in place, with a steady blood supply, the capsule remains in good health and has a beautiful, pearly white color.
