Can a Mammogram Rupture a Silicone Gel Implant?
I have silicone gel implants and I'm worried about future mammograms causing silent ruptures. My implants will be 16 years-old by the time I get my 1st mammogram. What is the likelihood of a mammogram rupturing an implant? I know that MRI's are the best option for silicone gel breast implants, but I doubt my insurance will cover this. Plus, I don't want my insurance to know I have breast implants because I'm scared they'll drop me. I'm considering switching to saline implants prior to needing mammograms because at least I can tell if it ruptured or not. Advice/suggestions appreciated.
