Your best option is to meet with a plastic surgeon and they can see if Allergan (which now owns McGhan) will honor any warranty.

Cost of Implant Rupture
The manufacturer's typically offer a warranty plan for your implants. Traditionally, they cover the cost of the new implant. Some of the newer warranty plans will also cover some or all of the cost for anesthesia and facility fee.
I wish you a safe recovery and fantastic result.
Replacement of ruptured implant
Implant companies have warranty on the implant against rupture. You can check with implant company (if you have implant information). If not, your plastic surgeon should be able to help you with that. There will be cost for facility/anesthesia/surgeon's fee.

Ruptured McGhan implant
McGhan is now owned by Allergan. If you have information on the type and style of your implant then a call by your plastic surgeon to Allergan can determine if there is any warrantee on your implant. Off hand I do not know for sure.
