If you live in a place that has very cold winters, is there any danger of your implants freezing because of the cold temperatures?
Will Breast Implants Freeze in Cold Weather?

Cold Weather and Breast Implants
No, the breast implants will not freeze in cold weather. The implants are placed under the pectoralis muscle and therefore it would be at your body temperature.
I hate the cold weather so I would move to the south immediately!!! In all seriousness, the only way they would freeze is if the rest of you froze as well. Other than normal precautions in very cold weather, you have nothing to worry about
Freezing Breast Implants
While women may feel that their breast implants are cold in freezing weather, the implants themselves always remain within a few degrees of body temperature. In the cold the body preserves its heat by increasing blood flow to vital organs and decreasing blood flow to the extremities and skin. The sensation is the same feeling that one would have with cold hands or feet in similar weather.

Breast implants get cold in colder weather
Your implants will not warm and cool at the same rate as your breast tissues. Women that I have skied with that have breast implants report feeling colder on very cold days. I have not read reports of breast implants 'freezing' - if you are stuck in weather that makes silicone freeze solid, then you have a serious climate issue to contend with.
Breast Implants Won't Freeze in Cold Weather
Your implants will be placed under your body's soft tissue. Your body's temperature is usually around 98.6 F. Your body's natural temperature will keep them from freezing.
No, breast implants will not freeze
The implants are in your body, and your core body temperature will keep them warm despite the outside weather.
Breast implants will not freeze
Breast implants will not freeze in cold weather. The breast implants will be maintained at or near your core body temperature.
Breast implants will not freeze in winter. Because silicone gel retains heat and cold longer than your on natural body tissues, your breasts will feel colder than the rest of your body when you come in out of the cold.

Breast Implants Are Different In A Body Then When In The Box
The concern about freezing of breast implants, particularly that of saline, is understandable. Given that water freezes and turns to ice, one may assume that such a change could happen after breast augmentation. However, the difference is that the implant is now placed in a location of a near constant temperature of around 98 degrees F. So matter what the outside temperature, the implant remains at a comfortable temperature. Like many physical features of a breast implant, do not confuse what may happen when it lays on a table with how it may behave when it is in the body.
