    I'm not saying she didn't have a valid medical reason. I'm only pointing out it probably wasn't a hard decision since modern breast implants are as good as they are now.

    I'm quite sure it was still a difficult decision. Breast implants take maintenance and can have their own complications.

    But easier than if only saline was available I bet.

    Saline implants suck.

    Saline is actually the safest way to go. I find it strange that they felt the need to mention the part I bolded. Interesting. I've heard of women with ruptured silicone breast implants that have had some serious health issues.

    Breast implants: Saline vs. silicone - MayoClinic.com

    Ruptured silicone implant
    If a silicone breast implant ruptures, you might not notice right away — or ever — because any free silicone tends to remain trapped in the fibrous tissue (capsule) that forms around the implant. This is known as a silent rupture.

    Leaking silicone gel isn't thought to cause systemic or long-term health problems — such as breast cancer, reproductive problems or connective tissue disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Still, a ruptured silicone breast implant might eventually cause breast pain or changes in the contour or shape of the breast.

    If this happens, your doctor will likely recommend surgical removal. If you wish, a new implant can usually be inserted at the same time.

    If an MRI scan detects an implant rupture but you don't have any signs or symptoms, it might be up to you and your doctor to weigh the risks and benefits of keeping the implant in place or having it removed.

    You aren't teaching me anything new, and these new cohesive gel implants are not the silicone type you mention.

    Yes, they still offer silicone filled breast implants.

    That seems highly CRAZY to me.

    Would you undergo something that traumatic to prevent the possibility of getting cancer?

    Detected early enough aren't most breast cancer cases survivable?

    Hmmm. Good point. This would probably be better in a health forum or the off-topic discussion forum.
