Can breast implants freeze at ‘extreme’ temperatures?
Obviously the silicone of breast implants is hardy but should they be exposed to extreme temperatures, how would they react?
Dr D’s Answer:
At a temperature extreme enough to make them change, the lady would be frozen solid or cooked. This is not an issue for the patient. You can of course take an implant and put it in the freezer or the oven and freeze or cook it. The silicone version would probably weather this better than the saline-filled type.
My funny little hobby of answering questions online has covered several venues. One of them was Yahoo Answers. It actually took them a few years to rate this one best answer. lol.
