I had saline implant following mastectomy 10 years ago. The implant was filled over the following year, and thenI had surgery to remove the valve that was in my armpit. Recently, I had the implant explanted and surgeon found free silicone in the cavity and attached to the old implant was a 10cm length .5-.7 dia tubing. Standard practice in the UK?
