Are silicone implants safe?
The short answer is yes, but we would like to share some of the histories of the silicone implant controversy so we can answer any questions you may have.
Between 1992 and November 2006, silicone breast implants were banned for use for aesthetic reasons, while the FDA gathered information about their safety. The only patients who received silicone implants during the period from 1992 to November 2006 was reconstruction patients and patients with problems such as capsular contracture and breast asymmetry.
In summary, all FDA studies led researchers to conclude that silicone breast implants do not cause any disease. Studies showed that there was no greater incidence of any type of disease in women with silicone breast implants compared to the female population in general. Silicone implants were determined to be medically safe.
Now, women will have the option of using silicone implants. The Wall Street Journal reported the recent FDA decision, which approved the use of silicone implants for cosmetic purposes for women over 22 years of age.
