A short video shows a 27 year old ruptured silicone gel implant and the calcified scar capsule the patient’s body made to try to contain it. It helps explain why some silicone breast implant patients develop rock hard breasts and what can be done to fix the situation.
It also helps explain why most often I prefer saline-filled breast implants that do not tend to encourage the formation of rock hard breasts. Seeing calcium deposition on the implant capsule (which is what makes the breasts really hard) in a woman who has never had silicone gel implants is extremely rare.
